JOHANNA’S PORTFOLIO OF WORKS ON PAPER is getting huge. To this unbiased critic, her style gets more fascinating by the week. Click to go big.

    Hey, while I received one invitation to Johanna’s party via Sarah’s email, I also received another for yet another b-day party directly from Johanna with a carefully stenciled “don’t tell my parents” at the bottom of that painting above “Kids in a Movie Theater”. Think you’d better go through her things…and then have a little talk with her, she’s showing tendencies towards moving out a little too soon!

    Jo IS now showing a capacity for lying and deceit, though it’s taking the form of concealing things she’s broken or, more often, taking a cookie and saying she didn’t.

    Go through her things? I guess Lola better keep her nose clean…
