Obscure Concealment

What do you do when your only goal in life is to join the Army but for some reason or other they just won’t let you in? What he was actually after was to be able to wear camouflage without everyone taking the mickey out of him. Whether he dons desert, arctic, forest or urban camo he just can’t get a break and people ridicule him for his obsession. What is a man meant to do when all he wants is to wear camo?

Well you could do what Tony here did and progress from just wearing camouflage to becoming camouflage. Tony became so good at it he would just melt in to his surroundings so no one could see him at all. ‘So how did you manage to paint him?’ I hear you ask. Well, let me tell you. I was in the studio playing around with some watercolours when out of the corner of my eye I was sure I saw something move. I know a thing or two about and the game of hide and seek and having had an exorcism just one week previously I knew it wasn’t a ghost. I did the only thing I knew which was to stay impossibly still and play the waiting game with this sucker. After almost 4 hours the game was mine due to Tony blinking whilst i was staring at the wall in front of me. Artistic super powers of observation for the win.

It is A4 is size and made using the magic of watercolour and charcoal drop us a line if interested.

We’ll have some quiet!

‘The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts’ is a quote from CS Lewis that is surely as true today as it was when he came out with it. Anyway, take these two young teachers, they look eager to inspire little minds and ‘irrigate deserts’ right? Wrong! They’d much rather be enjoying a couple of drinks in the nearest pub than trying to teach a screaming gang of 7 year olds how to do their times tables. If you could read their minds I’m pretty sure all you’d see was the mental calculation as they estimated how many more hours of work they’ll have to do before their next holiday…
