True story:

We were on an art school trip to Berlin back in March 2011. In the bar at the Tacheles art-squat (now sadly closed) I was trying to take a group photo but the head of BA fine art didn't like having her photo taken so kept hiding behind the guy next to her, spoiling the once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Back at home I photoshopped an earlier photo of her into one of the artworks on the wall above where she had been sitting, printed half-a-dozen A3 size and put them up in various places around the fine art department (cruel, I know, but that's art students for you...).

Anyway, I'm putting one up in the big studio and one of the BA students asks, "Where's that?". "It's a bar in Berlin", says I. "What", says she, "and they've got a picture of Maggie on the wall?!!".

I really wish I'd said yes...
