Caricaturist Mr Sketchum in his Austrian (minus the Paul Smith shirt!) "disguise", providing playful entertainment ('ball games') at the Embassy of Hungary's annual 'winter/masked/venetian/masquerade' (??!!) ball.


"The human face is, after all, nothing more nor less than a mask." – Agatha Christie


"Virtue has a veil, vice a mask." – Victor Hugo

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." – Oscar Wilde

"No-one reveals themself as they are; we all wear a mask and play a role." - Arthur Schopenhauer

"What do you call a masked moose? Anonymoose." -
