A Fancy Dress Emergency! Do you have one?!!!!

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!!!
