Maggie has been trying to forget herself for a few years now but, unfortunately for her, she has a mind like a steel trap which just won’t let her forget. She managed to get the three barmen at her local to forget her almost instantly, her cat Echo acted like she never knew who she was anyway and her parents had been largely ignoring her since her 21st birthday anyway.But she remembered.
The reason behind Maggie’s interest in forgetting herself comes down to her misguided attempt to woo her coworker Steve. It was all quite the drawn out farce with Steve not knowing who she was at all due to the fact that they had only ever talked in the office via post it notes on the fridge in the kitchen. To say she never lived it down would be an understatement. Steve left less than three months later but she still finds suggestive post it notes on the fridge from time to time…

Now it could be said that Carola here has what some call Narcissistic personality disorder or what others and my personal favourite, call megalomania. It’s not that she exhibits all of the symptoms but she certainly shows some and that’s enough for her.
A grandiose sense of self-importance – CHECK
Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love – CHECK
Believing that they are “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people – CHECK
Requiring excessive admiration – CHECK
A sense of entitlement – CHECK
Being interpersonally exploitative (taking advantage of others to achieve their own ends) – CHECK
Lacking empathy: unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others – CHECK
Often being envious of others or believing that others are envious of them – CHECK
Showing arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes -CHECK
Ok well it seems i might have misspoke. It seems Carola here is a full on Megalomaniac and from what I know of her very happy with the fact. In fact whilst she was posing for me all she could do was point at herself and quietly but persistently tell me to keep looking at her. As you can imagine this is quite difficult when you’re trying to sketch someone.
It is A4 in size and made using the magic of imagination, watercolour, acrylic, paint pen and ink. If you think she’s good enough to hang on your wall then get in touch…,
‘Kiss me quick, squeeze me slow’ would be the kind of thing you’d expect to find on a novelty hat in some godforsaken seaside town but this lady’s need is a bit more immediate. If she’s not kissed soon she’s going to implode. Which won’t be pretty – although possibly a little less messy than her exploding. Depending on just how quickly she needs to be kissed and how picky she is I’m sure there’s a few less salubrious places I could suggest where she would definitely come up trumps. Disaster averted. Next!
Title:Kiss me quick – before i implode!
Materials: Paint pen, acrylic, pencil and charcoal

This guy is a bit of a loner and has resorted to the art of magic and hypnosis to make friends. The one thing he imprints on all the people he uses his skills on is ‘Forget me not’ so that they won’t ever leave him.
Sadly though he’s not very good at either magic or hypnotism. For one his hands are far too big to do any slight of hand tricks apart from blocking people’s view of the the tricks due to their large size. And while i’m at it check out his eyes, only one of them can do the hypnotist’s swirl. This means people just end up feeling queasy instead of the intended hypnosis. Maybe he’ll get better with time…

Can somebody help me get this monkey off my back? Actually it’s not a monkey but some kind of over-sized monocle wearing raccoon. You don’t see that every day. Now comes the science: looking at her T-shirt does that mean she is pretty or not? I’m not entirely sure what it means or what she thinks it means but I think she is a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dark and dank world. And so does the raccoon hitching a lift on her back it would seem.
That’s all i’ve got for today. I never promised it would make any sense…

We have a friend who is suffering from M.E. (or, apparently, CFS depending on which acronym you prefer) and who is currently in a self-imposed exile in order to allow him time for some deep meditation in the hopes of getting himself back on track. So being the sensitive artists-about-town that we are we thought we’d make him a little something to hopefully brighten his day somewhat.
After some deliberation it was decided that a piece on slate featuring a sexy lady (a favourite subject of his) and a witty bit of text (Noboby understands M.E. – geddit?) would probably be appropriate. So after a little spraypaint, stencil work and some screen printing we were ready to go on a mission. As he’s not entirely up for frivolous visitors at the moment we thought it best to do our team ninja impression and sneak up to his house undetected and leave it on his doorstep for him to find at his own convenience. Hopefully we’ll find out what he thinks of it soon enough…
