"Ask me to paint anything you wish and I will try no matter how specific or surreal your demands. You name it. I’ll paint it. On Paint.”

Since making this promise, back in 2013, Jim has painted some 400 requests - covering everything from Thom Yorke the Tank Engine and Dad’s Army of Darkness to Mick Jagger disappointing customers at the paint mixing station in B&Q by matching every colour as black - each brought to life with painstaking detail using nothing but an archaic version of Microsoft Paint and an optical mouse.

From the surreal to the completely unhinged - via parody, political satire and pitch-black humour - many of the requests and suggestions he has rendered have become beloved icons of British internet humour, such as the viral sensation Vladimir Putin as every member of the village people and the recent image of Theresa May and Donald Trump re-enacting that scene from Dirty Dancing in a shark-infested lake.

Of Mouse and Man will be a high quality, full colour coffee table book with fantastic pledge levels, including signed copies, mugs and prints, and the chance to request a painting to appear in the book. The book will compile the very best of Jim’s first five years of work alongside never before seen material and unique insights into his creative process.

    Jim'll Paint It

    Jim is a human male from Bristol, England. He is best known for his popular ongoing social media project Jim’ll Paint It where, using an archaic version of Windows Paint, he takes requests from his followers and turns them into bizarre and often intricately detailed paintings. His work has been retweeted by many of his subjects including Sir Alan Sugar and Phillip Schofield. He has produced artwork for clients as diverse as National Geographic and Transform-A-Snack and featured in The Guardian, The Independent and Vice.

    Among his other creations is a series of labels for That Boutiquey Rum Company, an experimental image generator for BBC Three and two animated shorts for video game parody channel Mashed. In 2014 he published his first book, Electric Dreams, which compiled his earliest work. When he is not painting he enjoys watching obscure horror films and playing old video games. He lives with his wife, Tilly, and their dog, Cooper.

    You can find Jim'll Paint it on Twitter. On Facebook. On Tumblr. And via his website, Jim'll.co.uk.

    “The Weather Girls gleefully performing their most famous hit “It's Raining Men" whilst surrounded by a scene of absolute carnage as the bodies of the unfortunate aforementioned men lie dead and dying around them, having inexplicably fallen from the sky. Meanwhile, Michael Fish and Sian Lloyd look on, bewildered.”
