"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.
