Forgive me Remi

What to do, what to do. I wanted to do Remi with is ukulele, but Marina beat me to it. Looking for a bit of inspiration I stepped into Remi's Flickr world. First I checked the photos he had set aside for us to use. No ideas yet. Then I saw he had other photos on Flickr too, including a fabulously French sneering one. Ah! Now I think I know what to do. It is shamelessly taking advantage of racial stereotypes I know, but is it made ok by doing it to myself too? I don't know. Forgive me Remi!

Absolutely love this set of portraits. The drawing is fabulous. The panting is fast and perfect. And, I adore the color.

Just great!

I just love this. Excellent work— love the expressions! But what's on your plate?

Jan Allsopp said...

Szaza, it is a good ol' Aussie meat pie and tomato sauce. (Not that I usually partake mind you, it is a bit of artistic license.)

Next day and it still makes me laugh. I'd like to see you two face off on Iron Chef (don't even know if they have this in Australia). Just great.
