Micheal Townsend describes his work.

Despair #1-3 - 2010-2012

Follow the life of Lela in her journey of mid-life self discovery. 'We have all met Lelas in our lives. She is a woman immersed in a path of self exploration, intent and focused so much upon herself that she loses her connection to others.', writes Michael Townsend in Emigrants the magazine the Lela series first appeared. 'I have had several Lelas in my life - one as fearsome friend, one in a smash up love affair and a couple who were just shadows floating through some shared experiences. The sketches here are based upon those Lelas and others '.
