Xmas day drawings at Crisis.org.uk homless centre vs glitzy NYE party boat portraits

. An improvised sign for the art room window on Xmas day at Crisis.org.uk homeless day centre

. nice irish man concentrating on a jigsaw puzzle


 . Amazingly knowledgeable amnesiac film buff recounts all the films he has seen in graceful and charming conversation in the art room.


. her ears were presents


. he drew an australian desert populated by 1000 flowers under bright sunshine, 
. im eating my own hand.<with long legs>



. He is New York. he is the Bronx. he is stories of exotic urban life in a place you do anythingk to survive. 
. (he is more pleased with the 2nd drawing )-and asked for a 3rd±!

. sharp talons. tools of the trade


. a healthy happy volunteer. IT 
. power vacuum stasis.



 . IT department girl volunteer drawing wasnt photographed in the rush of giving. will post it here eventually. it waz quite a pleasing rendition of another smiling asian girl. one african man i drew for some reason refused to let me photograph his drawing after i'd spent 10-15mins drawing it, puzzling because he seemed to really like it, but perhaps a bit TOO much.. he promised to email it but i never heard from him. this is the lesson learnt, if you want to keep a record of yer werk - photograph it immediately. sumtimes the only person you can rely on is yerself.. 



i asked a French artist girl to explain Xmas thru the medium of drawing. this is her answer..
Apparently Santa wants to burn children>!?? lol.

.IT seems all posters are secretly the same underneath. (poster seen on way home)




THE REST OF THESE PICTURES are from a NewYears Eve party on a boat i was booked to attend. i&i found it interesting to document both ends the social spectrum (in terms of material wealth, perceived success and status) within the space of a few days. the event was held on a James Bond style luxury boat with vast amount of champagne and exotic cocktails, food catering by Jamie Oliver and a duck's eye view of the 2011 into 2012 fireworks. Its good to know joy, compassion and warm friendship can exist in both places. 

.Picasso-ish NYE party lady at a table  2011/2012. she had something of 1920's art deco feel about her dress sense.

 Banksy-ish biznizman rat and "RIP:Apple" news chimp. drew a turban wearing bespectacled gentleman az a logo on the briefcase..
 .<Cubist-ish. Belguim man likes the wiNe.> i enjoyed his profile and wavey hair.
 .Maha Laksmi enjoys the celebrations. ((Tsk @ the shadow))
 .Asian girl with beautiful smile loved being drawn. the joy her face expressed while i drew her waz almost completely distracting from the drawing process. (but in a good way)
 .Appreciative people couple from Eastern europe eating cheese and grapes.
 . italian and high heels. part 1.
  . italian and high heels. part 2.. (not me, her)
  . impressive ruffle style thingy at bak of dress. 

  . Almost Mystic Meg but way more entertaining.
. she is Lady Gaga according to her husband.
what an interesting festive season that was.
thankyou to my agency and Crisis.org.uk for making it happen!
