    Maho's drawing

    Compared to the mug, her hands look tiny. She smiles soothingly and sips the lukewarm tea. Everything about Maho oozes elegance and her je ne sais quoi reminds me of what she’s famous for: cute, frivolous peanuts. They dance and think, laugh and celebrate.

    Sonia's Bunnies

    Motionless bunnies moan to the beat. Holes in bags reveal anonymous snouts. Emma licks the pole and clasps her hips. Just like the ocean, her lips are obscenely present. Wet paws press to the damp sand. She twirls in circles and reaches for the head on the plate. Blood stains on his white fur. Or […]
