Now i know you’ve all heard of a king’s ransom but have you ever heard of a clown’s ransom? Probably not and that’s because no one’s ever paid one. Who would?

That said no is quite sure where the term came about. Was it when a clown got kidnapped and a ransom demand was given but instead of paying they just let the clown get it? Or as some others postulate a clown once kidnapped a poor soul but when the clown asked everyone for a ransom they thought it was a joke and carried on with their day. Neither story ends well so i’m not really sure what the moral is. I’ll let you work it out for yourself.

Cheers

Some call me pretty

Today’s eBay piece is ‘Some call me pretty’. You can check it on eBay on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392180031206

There are those who are blessed with the gift of beauty and there are those who have unfortunately been hit with the ugly stick. I hear you think ‘how very shallow for beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and that is usually the case. But not always.

Nearly everyone who has had the misfortune of setting eyes upon this soul have come away from the experience in tatters. Expect psychological and emotional scarring for openers and just hope that it doesn’t get any worse than that. In the interests of full exposure I should really mention that it’s not just his looks which drain most people but also his unbearable personality. It has been said that he was once used to wake someone from a coma although how true this is I’m not sure. I can only imagine it’s a case of out of the frying pan and in to the fire with this situation though as once the poor victim is awake he’s fully aware he’s stuck in a room with this dolt…

If only it was just my ego

Today on eBay is ‘If only it was just my ego’. Click the link below to check it on eBay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392171244637

I was in the studio the other day just minding my own business and painting away quite contently when this chump walks in and starts talking out the side of his neck at me. Although somewhat taken aback by this vitriolic outburst I initially managed to remain calm and ask him what on earth he thought he was doing. It was only when he reached for the canvas I was painting that I swung into action.

From there it escalated quickly. Once the dust had settled and we’d picked ourselves up off the floor we managed to work out what had happened. It turned out that I’d mistakenly walked into his studio and started working on his canvas (I thought it looked a bit different to the last time I was working on it but I just thought that was the other half of id-iom) and so he’d got a little tetchy with me. In way of making it up to him I promised I’d do him a portrait. And this is what he’s getting. That’ll teach him to talk to me like that…

Cheers

It’s now or never man!

I thought it time for another double sided piece and ‘It’s now or never man!’ is the somewhat inevitable result.

Do you enjoy sitting on the sofa when you know you have something more important to do?

Can you spell ‘procrastination’?

Are you more inclined to err on the side of caution?

If you answered yes to any of or all of the above questions then ‘It’s now or never’ is just the product for you! It’s ideal to give you that extra little nudge you need to justify to yourself whatever decision you’re about to make. It’s that simple! Anyone can use them!

Side 2 features a disembodied and somewhat world-weary looking face giving us what surely amounts to a bit of stinkeye. Luckily for us he’s no expert at applying mascara – or lipstick for that matter it would seem. Simply inexplicable…

Intrepidi

Today’s eBay piece is ‘Intrepidi’ you can check it out on the link below:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392153069485

On extremely hot days here in London things can get quite difficult as the city is generally built for enduring somewhat chillier weather. When the temperature does hit the heady heights of 30+ degrees it takes a certain kind of person to knuckle down and continue get stuff done.

To survive you’ll need ‘the grim determination of self’ which most folk just don’t have. Most people just call in sick and use the time to sit on their sofa in their underwear watching the tennis whilst simultaneously enjoying a cold beer and complaining about the unseasonal heat. I’ll readily admit that I don’t work well at high temperatures and have been known to do this quite often. When it comes around to the winter however I will also procrastinate saying it’s either too cold or to dark to work. As is life.

This isn’t the case for this fella though, he’s a straight up trooper, a soldier, a man of steel. When the chips are down, he gets up just so he can get down. That’s just the kind of guy he is. Although he’s not the most fun at house parties. It’s swings and roundabouts really isn’t it?

Cheers

The Boy with the Red Face

First up this week we’ve got ‘The Boy with the Red Face’ who is
now on eBay (click link to follow to eBay)..

Well, well, look what we have here. It looks like someone has been caught doing something they shouldn’t by their mum. The red face and sullen eyes are an obvious giveaway but just look at those tears as well – that’s a sure fire sign if ever I saw one! The only thing I’m not sure about is what exactly this lad has done – but don’t worry, we can always make something up…

Hubert, for that is what we shall call him, was on his way to the shop to fetch some ciggies for his mother. When the proprietor turned his back Hubert decided to steal some Disney Princess ‘Princess Glamour’ Sticker Collection packs from the counter but Hubert wasn’t a skilled thief. Needless to say the owner caught him and promptly escorted him back home after leaving the shop in the hands of Mrs Clompton who had only just popped in for a pint of milk.

The story continues of course but i think you can fill out the rest of the story yourself and how he ended up like he is in the painting…

Cheers
