Recently I had a phone call from a young man in his 30's who had an emergency face painting request! He and a friend were going to a fancy dress party in Hipstaville that evening and the theme was to arrive as a famous artist of their choice! They needed help fast! With no costumes organised - only an idea in their heads, he asked me if I could help!!!! He had certainly come to the right person- Creature Features to the rescue!!....So I invited him to come to my studio as soon as possible in Archway (where I work as an artist). An hour later, he arrived- a bare canvas! He wanted to be a "Van Gogh self portrait" he said, and his friend wanted to be a "Picasso"!!!
The first thing I did was ask him if he had a straw hat? "No!!!" he said, so I told his friend to nip down the road to a ramshackle junk shop next to the studio to see if he could one, whilst I start to paint the other's face. "See if you can find a couple of picture frames while you are at it, I asked as he left...!"
Well here are the results!!!
