The Cartooning of Mr Him

Mr Him has mighty fine ideas. And sometimes he doesn't.  Tuesday night after a dry Rose wine and a chocolate mousse thingy he had an idea. It was a subjective idea.  One whereby you aren't quite sure whether it was fine or not, so you give it a sample.  Those who bought tickets to watch may well have thought it was fine.  After half the bottle of Rose Miss 18 thought it was hilarious.  

The idea was to have us caracacheuteured. That may well look like neutered, which I'm sure you'd think was a fine idea in Mr Him's case, but it's my word for turning us into cartoons.   I needed all the Rose Miss 18 could spare me to sample this idea I can tell you. 

Miss 18, full of the joy of Rose, hopped eagerly into the torture chair.  The light shone bright upon her emblems of independence and adulthood, her piercings, and her teeth.  As the artist picked up his equipment the crowds gathered.  A drummer rolled his drum of doom and suspense.  The result,  Miss 18 was immortalised alongside a piranha. Next Mr Him.  The stallholder next door realised his opportunity for enrichment.  Tickets were sold with mutterings of ears, bonus chin.  For 10 euro extra watch the forehead being formed. It was a success for all who gathered, especially the entrepreneurial stallholder next door.  (Don't worry, you have the video). Next my turn.  I sat all a nervous, not having had the benefit of a sufficient amount of Rose.  I dared not to smile and show my teeth, having seen what the artist had done to the other two.  A lady in the audience smiled encouragement to me like a mother to her child on stage.  She nodded and mouthed 'It's OK.'
Mr Him thinks the artist was kind to me.  Thank you Mr Him! 
  
Yes, here's the video

Enjoy.  I didn't.

  1. Well, the end result is delightful! You can see the apprehension practically radiating off you in the video though. And I must say, it looks like Miss 18 had much, MUCH more than a mere half bottle of rose. Or perhaps I just forget what the exuberance of youth was like.

  5. Such fun to watch and the caricatures are brilliant, what a keepsake. You're having a super time, for sure, and I'm sure you're relaxing, though maybe not whilst on the chair! Great Miss 18 is with you. Lovely dress too.

  9. Looks like you had a great time and the end result was, well, a caricature bringing out your prominent features. It'll be a great thing to deck your walls and a talking point for years to come with all who visit you.
