Kate Moss is more than a 1 trick pony.

A self portrait drawn in lipstick by supermodel Kate Moss has been sold for £33,600 in London.
The model, from Croydon, south London, made the work while she was in a relationship with Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty.
Doherty's blood stains are on the canvas, on which he has written: "Who needs blood when you've got lipstick?"
Doherty originally owned the portrait, but sold it to an anonymous seller who then placed it in Saturday's auction.
A self-portrait by Doherty, signed in blood, was also put up for sale in the auction but a buyer could not be found.

Wow, I actually like this (shock). Don't get me wrong, the picture does have some seriously disturbing weirdness in it. For example; her head looks like its on the end of a spiked pole (Lord of the Flies style) and then the fact Pete Doherty was involved... Pete's like a random force of nature so I'm surprised the picture survived at all.
So, strangely, I don't care for Kate as a model but I like her art.
