Boo Hoo

boo hoo baby flickr

There’s no need to worry about this little cry baby, as he’s actually a fully grown man who has a penchant for acting like a snivelling little child. All he ever seems to do is whine and moan about just everything and everyone he comes in contact with. He asked me to paint his portrait which was going to end up being a gift for his girlfriend but even before he sat down he was in tears about some rubbish like the chair being too cold.

This went on for hours with him constantly moving and complaining, so i just started to doodle. He then really got on my nerves by asking how it was going with the picture and that’s when i lost it. I jumped up at him, paintbrush in hand, and just started slapping paint all over his face. Before i knew it I was pressing his face down on the paper and screaming obscenities at him. After I’d calmed down and let him go, he lifted his head to reveal this picture which we both liked. I liked it so much I decided not to give him the picture but instead drew a crappy left handed portrait akin to a 5 year old’s effort and threw him out of the studio. I’m sure there must be a lesson in there somewhere but I’ve got no clue as to what it may be…
