Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Latest Picks is a sort of mini-blog for daily thoughts and picks. Longer articles, stories & sketches are found in the full-size blog, where indeed Latest Picks are moved when updates to a story make it too large.

Note: Both Latest Picks and Blog are to be retired at the end of September, although both will remain available indefinitely as an archived part of the site. No further updates to past stories will be made.

First off, some sad news at home today and many, many thanks for those on SketchCam and whom I’m in contact with who sent well-wishes.

Life can be a strange balancing act

Ariana Grande apologises for “anti-America” doughnut-licking video, blames obesity in the US (

“Earlier this week, a video surfaced of Ariana and her new dancer boyfriend in a doughnut shop, where she was seen licking the sweet treats that were left on a counter, before rudely addressing a staff member, saying: ‘What the fuck is that? I hate America.’”

Indeed, a now “glazed” doughnut likely for sale at an exorbitant price on eBay and prompting weighty arm-chair shifting among some elder Arianators furiously syrup steamed at her unpatriotism so soon after cream tea dumping 4th July now wishing and willing to give her a salty lesson for her unsavory sulking.

“Ariana is claiming that she was rude to a staff member and licked doughnuts on a counter, before leaving the shop without paying for them, as some kind of anti-obesity protest. That’s… that’s what she’s saying, right?”

I don’t know, but what I do is that had it been Charlie Sheen it’d likely be seen as some Violent Sugar Torpedo of Truth and what I get up to in Greggs while out my tree while no one is looking is my business, and just yours to buy.

You know though, I think she has a history of this.

Props—do not eat

Yep, Sam made her do it.

Thanks NessaLvr and others respectfully not wishing to be indentified lest they stir unpatriotic rotund wrath for passing that on and, for sure, it’s musical break time.

Ariana Grande let off over licking charges (

Ariana Grande—no charge for licking
“Ariana Grande’s doughnut licking video will not lead to any criminal charges, Californian police have said. Police in Lake Elsinore, California said that the owner of Wolfee Donuts, where the incident took place, has decided not to press any charges against the Bang Bang singer, who was caught on video tasting two doughnuts she didn’t buy on July 4.”

But, it seems interviewing cops wishing to see Ariana stick her tongue in a doughnut hole wasn’t the be-all and end-all, and Wolfee wasn’t at all keen for the exposure of tongue, in or on doughnut or otherwise to continue:

“The authorities say their investigation was primarily to help the Department of Health, which lowered the restaurant’s grade from an ‘A’ to a ‘B’ for leaving the tray of doughnuts exposed.”
