Sometimes I make work with the hope that there is a mildly interesting message in there somewhere. Other times I just want to create funny people and paint nice clothes: the sorts of clothes that I love but can't wear right now because it's too hot.
Mr Freedom was inspired by a vintage jeans advertisement. He was going to go for double denim but he chickened out at the last minute and as a result will be donning checked flannel and a fair isle scarf until the end of time. Even when he has to pose for his photo in 35 degree (high 90s F) heat. No wonder he looks grumpy. But then I am grumpy too, and I am only wearing a thin cotton dress.
Here's to civilised weather, wherever you live. It's coming!!!
