Matty the Damned and Squeak: Immortalised in Art!
« on: February 25, 2007, 08:17:47 PM »
Dear Sweaty Masses,

It will come as no surprise to any of you to learn that Matty the Damned is inundated with requests from artistic types that he sit as a model. Generally, he says no.  The majority of painters and sculptors are parasites who in a perfect world would be exterminated with extreme prejudice.

Nevertheless, there is always an exception. In this case the exception is Arpad, the boyfriend of our beloved Little Man and Baby-Boi, Squeak (aka Jaser, aka Mouse). Arpad is, I think you'll agree (and I couldn't give a fuck if you don't) a most skilled practitioner of the visual arts.

Some weeks back, Arpad drew this picture of myself and Squeak as David and Goliath. Note the Wombat Rampant on my shield and little Jaser slaying me with his heart.


Excellent stuff.

MtD

Amazing.

Very nice indeed. He is very talented. Is there more?

Assuredly yes, Queenie. Both the Smaller One and the 'Pad are incredibly talented young men and as such their creative output (both individually and collectively) is nothing less than prodigious.

I'm in the fortunate position of having seen a considerable amount of these works. But they're not mine to share. I sought Squeakie's permission before I posted the gorgeous offering you see here. What others are permitted to see is a matter for the Little Man.

This is so very stunning I am breathless.  Not the art, but the fact that two of our very special members have been imortalized in art.  Wow, Wow, Wow!!!!

I immediately copied it to my pictures and will have it framed.  I love it.

I hope that you both don't mind, but I cannot believe how accurate the depiction of you is Matty, and the details of your countenance are stunning.

Jaser, keep this one on hold, he is obviously very caring for you and has an incredible talent, but I guess you already knew that.

Love you both!!!!

Wow, Wow, Wow, this is so amazing!

Do you guys see the half face from the nose to the jaw bone with the open mouth?

It is just above the shield....who ever it is breathing on Matty's back.

Just stunning.

Oh yeah! I didn't see that earlier this morning when i viewed it. To me, the nose and cheek has the same shape as matty's. Too Cool.
