Beauty & The Beast

Here's a new twist on Beauty And The Beast ... er ... alien ... er ... swine flu impersonator? Now, now, we mustn't be racist, let alone xenophobic. So let's call it Beauty And The Handsome Foreigner. These are two of the winning entries in the New Zealand Body Art Awards 2009 (title link). On the left is Yolanda Bartram Hannah's winning design in the airbrush category. On the right is the overall winner: Painted Skin by Kelly Zhong-ni Ren. The Guardian Online (CLICK) has posted a gallery of more than 20 fantastic designs from the Awards, which were held last Saturday at the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna, Auckland.

Very nice. Painting ladies must be a great job.

Hi, Rabbit

Yes. Looks good. All I ever get to paint are kids' faces. Big question is: Can you make a living painting ladies' bodies? The few I know who are doing so are ladies themselves. They teach the art as well.
