Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

OK guys, seeing as its a news blackout at the moment, I'm casting the net a bit wider! Earlier this year, a number of Russian and international celebrities were invited to paint porcelain tiger cubs (2010 being the Year of the Tiger) to raise money for orphanages in St Petersburg and Moscow this Christmas.

The cubs were auctioned off in two lots, St Petersburg in November and Moscow on 03 December. Among the various celebs asked to participate were Madonna, Britney Spears, Keira Knightley, Nick Cave, Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys, and of course Marat! His cub is to the left of the one wearing the Mad Max pelt.

Here's Madonna's, apparently created during a Stairmaster workout.


Britney goes for the tramp stamp ...


Nick Cave almost breathes life into his


Neil Tennant, blingin'


The starting price for each cub was 10,000 rubles. Keira Knightley's cub fetched 33,000 (£660) and Madonna's a surprisingly low 37,000 (£740), while Britney's got 65,000 (£1,300) and Marat's a respectable 70,000 (£1,400). ROWR!!!

Total amount raised from the Moscow auction = 1,864,000 rubles (£37,200), which means that on Christmas morning, a lot of innocent eyes will be lighting up at the sight of presents under the tree.

More info on how the proceeds will be spent are in the last paragraph here: http://www.vmdaily.ru/article.php?aid=87942.

They're abusing Burrow in the ACC, I hope he doesn't take any of it seriously and is working out hard and practicing.

Feliciano looks absolutely purrrrrfect though.
At least Justine will be back on women's tour. OK enough chat on the piccies thread, sorry.

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

Is that his new burd? (As we'd say in Scotland ...) LOL. Looks like she's bringing in his bread and milk.

He'd be bereft if he lost that phone ...

Evidently no one at the paprrazi site had a clue as to who that lady is (she looks like someone's maiden auntie ) and were calling upon the public to submit information about her.

Shall we make something up and sublmit it to the site?

Re: 2009 Piccies Thread!!!

More art stuff! These have recently been uploaded onto flickr by Oleg Timofeyev, one of Marat's artist friends. I'm sure by now everyone has seen pics (esp. the fourth one) of Marat's broken racquets which were exhibited at Art Manege 2005 by Timofeyev and another artist Vasily Bogachev as an installation called "Марат Сафин. Разрушение ракетки" / "Marat Safin. Racquet Destruction". A scaled down version of the original project was shown in May of this year.
