    I just received a portrait from a colleague of mine.

    I figured the least I could do was to show some people, in case anyone needs any similar work. No affiliate connection here, just trying to return the favour, somehow.

    This picture is of me flying the Cessna 172 with my girlfriend back in the spring.

    Nice, you know most gigs of people doing this are lousy and look so fake.

    I think it took a couple weeks. Certainly some genuine talent here

    Ah, I'm not sure they compare if I'm honest. In the first picture it must have taken, like, three hours to finish the shading on her upper lip. It's probably the best drawing he's ever done.

    Sorry, but you're going to need to work on your other skills. You know, like numchuk skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills...

    Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.

    Haha I really want to creep you out somehow now but it's the internet so that creepy comment will be around forever. I only asked because I live close to it and have friends there. You ever go to pink punters? And no I'm not gay or a tranny before anyone even asks haha.

    I have been to Pink Punters, yes. To be fair, it's a good club and I'm not going to complain about being hit on by hot girls. I mean, it's not my thing but you know, my ego enjoys being fed.

    How close is close?

    You can catch me in Pinks most weekends.

    Not a homo, but cheap drinks, 90's music and fire pits are addictive.

    I'm always told it's the best club in Milton Keynes and there's always some funny sights there. Like it's perfectly normal to see a massive 6ft man in a blonde wig and high heels. I'm Cirencester way, about an hour away. Are there lots of BHW people in that area then?

    To be fair, pinks has that many straight people in there it's not a gay club.

    If they just got rid of the rainbows, no one would know.

    Those pits are awesome, so great to just mong out by. Surprised they allowed them in the club though!

    Technically I believe the first floor/entrance counts as outside...

    What time did you stay to? If you stay till sort of 5am when the sun starts to come up you realise just how open that top room is. It blew my mind when I first went there, you go for a dance, you come out the room and you're outside. I was that drunk I thought the building had collapsed.

    It's a great club - half of it's outside with random fire pits everywhere and god knows how many different rooms with different types of music. Keep meaning to count them but somehow never find myself able to do so by the time I get there.

    Otherwise, Craufurd Arms is a great pub / club if you want something a little more chilled and they have a small venue out the back with live bands playing most nights.

    ETA: Yes - fire pits. Took me too long to type this on my phone.
