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…

Brixton Brew is open for business!
Brixton Brew is our new local cafe – which has the added twist of being attached to the local pub! You can see the problems that could arise from such a combination but so far it hasn’t lead to any all day drinking sessions. Although i suppose it’s only a matter of time…
There we were enjoying a nice frosty beverage in the local when the manager pops up and asks if we’d care to do a little work branding their new cafe. We, of course, agreed and set to work on coming up with a few ideas. Once we had the design finalised it was time to get it on the wall. On a dry but very windy day we set to work and the biggest problem we faced on this little commission was ensuring that the lettering was straight, which is not particularly one of our strengths at the best of times although I think we just about got it nailed this time thankfully. Then it was just a case of getting the mug logo and steaming kettle on the door and we were good to go. Partial payment came via a tasty panini and a pint. Job done.
One of our local pubs asked if we could come up with a design for a t-shirt for their staff to wear during the upcoming World Cup. Despite the fact that we aren’t actually English we thought it only fair to come up with a design. The logo on the back is an adapted version of the World Cup logo which, obviously, features a white horse.
