Overtly sexual desire

Hmmm… What can I say about this picture that it doesn’t already say for itself. I could try and describe my motivation but fear it would probably end up sounding like something from Reader’s Wives. Oh well, perhaps the following will fly…

The phrase comes courtesy of an overheard conversation whilst on a bus. I couldn’t tell you who had such overt desire or towards whom it was directed but I just couldn’t get the phrase out of my head. To cut a long imaginary story short I had a dream that night where loads of hands were grabbing me, much like when Sarah falls down the oubliette in 1986 musical fantasy film ‘Labyrinth’, but of course in my dream, it wasn’t quite as PG.

After waking with the half-forgotten dream quickly evaporating from my mind I jumped on to the nearest canvas to try to reclaim some of my increasingly slippery thoughts. You may wonder why. But personally I’d like to think ‘Why not?’

It is on a 1×1 m canvas and made using the magic of imagination, acrylic, spray paint and charcoal.

A pain in the neck

This hipster is sad because he thought it would be a good idea to wear some neck rings so his peers would believe he was a cool cat who’d been travelling and, like, totally come to some mindblowing conclusions about humanity when in fact the furthest he’s really been is  a day trip to France and he did, in fact, buy his neck rings off the internet (but they’re, like, totally authentic. Guaranteed.)

Not only is he a bit of a twat but he’s just come to the shocking realisation that once a persons neck has adjusted to the neck rings they have to leave the neck rings on permanently because having them on weakens the neck muscles causing the neck to essentially not being able to support itself.  Oh dear.
