With the weather seemingly on the turn it seems a fine time to bring out this lovely little ray of sunshine. As we begin to realise there is life after winter and start making plans for summer surely everyone looks forward to drinks, barbecues, holidays and sunbathing. Well this young lady is already there and clearly enjoying it.
The line ‘crotch hot and happy’ comes from a book called Bastion Falls by Susie Maloney and for some reason this obviously had some resonance with me. After the mandatory gestation period from reading the book to coming up with a design this is what came forth…

I know, I know. It’s an odd title for both a blog post and a picture but there you have it. I’m not going to back down on this one…
What can i say about ‘A Fiery Soft Mess’? Well ‘A-mazing!’ and ‘Lovin it!’ are just two of the top-level superlatives already applied to this piece (albeit on our flickr page 😉 ) but if nothing else she is impressive in dimensions (over a metre tall/wide) although she is painted on a big piece of wood! What springs to mind when i say the words ‘A Fiery Soft Mess’? In fact don’t answer that and just enjoy the picture. In fact pointedly don’t answer the question of what springs to mind when i say ‘A Fiery Soft Mess’. At least we resisted the urge to colour her nipple in. I think i prefer it that way now although I was chief advocate of nipple painting at the time the issue was under question. It just goes to show that you do live and learn.
Keep tuned for the next week’s truism…

I’m bored of trying to come up with pithy little comments to write to go along with our pictures.
No I’m not! I really quite enjoy it actually… I’m sure we’ve all become a little bored when we find ourselves in the unenviable position this young lady has managed to get herself into. Really, women these days what are they like? Mine barely knows how to tuck my microphone in properly! (see ‘Commentary career’ here if confused)
Looking at this kind of thing can not only make you go blind but can also have you up before the Personnel department if you’re not careful whilst at work. I know because it happened to me 😦 Happy viewing…
