Ready to ROK!

When Rikki (ROK5008) mounted his canvas in the gallery this morning -an intricate patchwork of shiny leather facets- and we saw him produce no more than a fistful of marker pens to create his image, I thought we might be in for a long night before the ink would take. But Rikki works fast! Those of you who followed our live webcast of him at work will have already observed that he deviated from his initial proposal to sketch the gruesome Stuart Pearce, or the perhaps even less picturesque Brian Clough. Instead, he went with world number one, the NIKE-friendly Ronaldo, who is far easier on the eye as I'm sure you'll agree. And...he's already finished! Just in time for a quick Swiss ale before the private view begins.
