Come on England.
A painting about some stuff that happened today.
Amidst the much-hyped meeting of two narcissistic leaders in Singapore and the furore of the Brexit debate, elsewhere in the world a cheeky chappy in Minnesota decided to steal the limelight and attempt to scale a building 300 times taller than themselves.
The cheeky chappy in question?
Okay, I didn’t get a knighthood.
I made an artwork of one instead.
Peace is cancelled.
Has been for a long time.
Must try harder.
For the second day running, a news item about food has inspired my art.
The story comes from New Statesman and its article about the celebrity food tycoon, Jonathan Cheban aka ‘The Foodgod’, and the enveiling of his new culinary sensation: the golden chicken wing.
For train nerds like me, I have painted a melting, distorted British Rail logo with watercolour on paper.
Elsewhere, On The Big Day is a mixed media artwork depicting a random place on earth at the same time of the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
You can buy the original painting from my online shop here.
As insults go, when Donald Trump called Kim Jong Un a “Little rocket man”, it almost had an endearing ring to it.
Not one to be outdone in the insult humdinger stakes, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has muscled in on this international game of mud-slinging, and what better way to ‘trump’ (see what I did there) Trump, than to use that well-known dictionary of cliché gangland terminology.
Trump will be worm food
Anyway, I had to smile. And from that smile came an artwork I have simply titled, Worm Food
