    Night of the Walking Insomniacs !
    Hear their mournful cries as they stumble forth, “Horlicks! No Ovaltine ! No Horlicks!”

    Saw an unwrapped Egyptian Mummy from a few thousand years ago displayed in a glass case in a museum and she looked considerably fresher than that.

    Another great image though, and not a hint of make up involved either eh? 🙂

      I know you like precision, Andrew, so:

      No actual make-up involved here, in that acrylic poster paint is not usually referred to as such. Non-toxic.

      Glad you like it! One of my favourites. 🙂

        I have been a lifelong insomniac

        I have resorted to many many different things to pass the time while unable to sleep

        But it never occurred to me to get up, plaster my face in acrylic paint and take photos of myself

        How could I have missed that option?

        I must just be lacking in imagination

        But then I’d fall asleep with paint still on, post-lady would ring doorbell in morning, I would unthinkingly answer the door, post-lady would collapse and die

          I’m not sure when mine started, but for years I’ve struggled to fall asleep. Then once I’m asleep it’s quite hard to wake me up. It doesn’t bother me so much anymore, it still happens but I don’t have to get up and go to work now, making it less stressful. A good few times I’ve worked a full day on no sleep whatsoever, feeling disgusting!

          So this picture is part of a series that I did in fact do in the early hours of one morning and I did indeed give someone a start! He didn’t die, just laughed nervously when I explained what I was doing.

    I’ll have to have a look at the complete series again, as I might have ‘forgotten’ one that I do like.
    Anyway, I think ‘Petrification’, ‘In-the-country-of-the-blind’ and ‘Insomniac’ are my top three, in this order.
    Always amazing, often touching.
    Great work.
