Of Mouse and Man: The Best of Jim'll Paint It (Hardback)Jim'll Paint It (author)
Armed only with a creaky digital paint package and a whole heap of invention, Jim’ll Paint It has become an online phenomenon. This collection of his most celebrated illustrations features the famous and powerful in a number of lunatic scenarios requested by the addled minds of the general public. Utterly hilarious and beautifully realised, Of Mouse and Man is a truly unique artistic achievement.
"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."
Jim has painted some truly unhinged requests - from Kanye West giving birth to himself and Ross Kemp on Toast to A Swan Wearing Bjork as a Dress and Bill Oddie Beating Hitler at Catchphrase - each brought to life with painstaking detail using nothing but an archaic version of Microsoft Paint and an optical mouse.
Many have since become beloved icons of British internet culture, such as The chestburster scene from Alien portrayed by famous TV puppets and the infamous Tory Squat Party. Of Mouse and Man is the very best of Jim's first five years of work alongside never-before-seen material and unique insights into his creative process.
