No 309 Melvyn Levy


Sketching is the breath of art: it is the most refreshing of all the more impulsive forms of creative self-expression and, as such, it should be as free, and happy, as a song in the bath.” Melvyn Levy, who drew this sketch of his friend Dylan Thomas, was born on 11 February 1914, in Swansea. He died on 14 April 1996.

This is a strange quote as I’ve never heard of anyone who is able to draw coming from Swansea before! (Let see how good the internet is in Rawlpindi!)
