Anna Magnowska - Crikey....!

I was wandering aimlessly round the caverns and caves of the internet on Monday evening, steering clear of the naughty places where dirty men hang out (MySpace is so hideous). It was all rather indiscriminate - clicking from football to music to notepads to chocolate to googling my name. Useful it was not. But on I clicked. I was just about to call it quits and retire to the sitting room for a pre dinner snackette of macaroon and tea when I realised I hadn't visited the wonderful Made in England by Gentlemen in a week or two.

Well I nearly spat my tea out, nearly. For there, at Made in England by Gentlemen, was the work of Anna Magnowska, a waitress/artist. And it blew me away. Here have a peep...

by Anna Magnowska

by Laura Quick

As you can see they are actually done on sheets from order pads and if you look closely enough you can still see the actual order on the sheet. I have to say that I am totally taken with these, they really are just superb. The way she has captured the attitude and indeed ugliness of spirit of some guests is just remarkable. These pictures say more and say it better than any of my rage filled missives and with more humour too.

I have wasted my life. (Irish Blog Award shortlisting aside, which is a definite yippee moment)

If anybody needs me I shall be crying into my pillow whilst eating a macaroon bar.

Check out more of Anna's waitressing work here

and with other work by Anna and her waiter chum Laura Quick in The Independent here

purchase prints and originals from here.

I'll have two please....with chips, thanks.

26 People trying to get Manuel's attention:

If only I could draw...

People, generally, are becoming bigger arseholes as time goes by, no doubt about it.

Manuel said...

99 words: I am indeed testament to that very sentiment.....I fucking hate poetry too....

ninetyninewords said...

I include myself in that.

Manuel said...

99 words: clearly.....heh

Boxer said...

I love the Internet because you were able to find these and now I get to look at them too.

Medbh said...

The second one is fabulous.
He's just all mouth and no face.

Manuel said...

boxer: exactly....aren't they just superb..

Medbh: did you check the rest? the stuff on the indie's site is superb....

savannah said...

Waiter Extraordinaire said...

I will have to check these out. The remarks are great.

Manuel said...

savannah: oh you're welcome.....

steve: but aren't they..?!

Old Knudsen said...

What are they drawn by 5 year-olds? yes I have just seen who is more pop culturery and funnier than me.......... its all politics you know.

Manuel said...

old k: ha! there is an old dog that lives out the back of my house. It only has three legs and eats it's own shit. Fleas and ticks live in it's fur and even the rats think it;s dirty. But even it;s funnier and more pop culture than you.......heh

too much?

who loves ya baby.......?!

Tuesday Kid said...

don't be like that. Anna rocks but you rock too. You should start a rock band and totally rock.

toast said...

Old K and manuel are together in the same category at the irish blog awards, be interesting to see this one develop folks...


manuel, thanks for sharing that - they are indeed great.

Manuel said...

tuesday kid: will do.....maybe

toast: ha! bloody good there are thousands of miles between us.....plus he's gay for me....

Sassy Sundry said...

Those are fantastic. I guess that's one way to avoid killing someone.

Manuel said...

sassy: yeah....better to create than stab....unless of course you use the blood....hee hee hee

MJ said...

The only way to sort out this same-category-as-Knudsen business is to have the pair of you oiled up for a nude wrestling match.

*takes ringside seat*

Manuel said...

mj: ooh you'd like that wouldn't ya.....eeeww

Native Minnow said...

You've let me down. You've let us all down. You should've been drawing on napkins and order pads all along. Now, get to work.

Conan Drumm said...

The least you could do is illustrate your posts with scans of the relevant diners' orders, annotated in red ink.

Old Knudsen said...

old k: ha! there is an old dog that lives out the back of my house. It only has three legs and eats it's own shit. Fleas and ticks live in it's fur and even the rats think it;s dirty. But even it;s funnier and more pop culture than you.......heh

so you claim affinity with this dog then?

Old Knudsen said...

Sorry I forgot:


Cunt!

problemchildbride said...

Absolutely bloody delighted to squeee and back to see you on the Best humour shortlist, toots!
