Using an online doodling application.
I love it - it just seems to work.
I'm thinking Sarkozy - with that insufferable smug half-smile he puts on everytime he wants to act all post-ironic and meta-clever, and other neo-logisms with a dash involved.
Or maybe it's the local Greek Sandwich tycoon - which is all you need to know (about Sarkozy).
If y'all want to give it a go yersel'.

It's just me admiring myself.
I did try to embeautify, but there was a bug...
(I'm not embeautifiable).
I got a very irrate, not to say outright rude, letter from A. Schmuck of the Schmuck, Vetburger and Frietjes cabinet of lawyers delivered today.
Acting on behalf of a "Disnae Wine Buff", they complained that I failed to credit the above photo.
Somehow they worked out that I didn't take it myself.
Clever people, these ambulance-chasers. And very hungry.
So, the above photograph is copyright "Dafney Van Gogh" 2010, in all dominions of the King and beyond. Even, but not limited to, the ends of the earth.

Oil Pastels, difficult to work with, but well worth the effort.
The pastels, not the woman. Heh.
I think she used to sing with Portishead or summat - anyway, disnae matter, she is gorgeous.

Wrapping paper, acrylics and varnish.
(The varnish darkens the paper, and brings out the white. It's a magical process)
I got a lot of mileage out of that piece of wrapping paper.

Ink pen, brush and water. 1990.
Kinda looks like the East-African father of a future United States President, but I do tend to let my imagination run away with me.
(In 1990, when I did this, Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review. I'd never heard of the guy - but then, neither had you.)
