Pig – Encore

Welcome back to Artist’s Corner, the bit of my blog in which I pretend that fairly rubbish drawings are actually art.

Lately I’ve been posting the same sort of inept doodles as ever, but with the added twist that my almost-two-year-old daughter had been adding her own unique take using some washable felt-tip pens.

Last week we gave you ‘Pig’, a work that was genuinely described in the comments section as being “structurally simple yet rhythmically balanced” and a “stunning display of technical mastery”.

However, in what is a definite first in this series, Little Proclaims declared herself unhappy with the finished work and yesterday morning she elected to revisit it. I think you’ll agree that her new interpretation reveals an entirely different construal to the piece. But I’ll leave the specifics once again to the comments section. For now, please enjoy “Pig – Encore”

A Singer Fit For The Job

Ok, if I’m brutally honest, this is just a rubbish picture of a singing pig that I drew a few weeks ago, while generating ideas for my new ‘Artists Corner’ feature. But then I realised it was quite a big day politically so, in the absence of any genuinely insightful satire, I’ve crowbarred this in as a slightly clumsy nod to political events elsewhere.

So today is the inauguration of Donald Trump. Apparently it’s quite a big deal but there is a shortage of celebrities willing to endorse his presidency and sing at the event.

Which seems like a shame.

But I’ve found someone who’s suitable.

And like Trump he’s kind of a big deal. And also kind of a pig deal.

Here is a privileged glimpse of the great Porkerotti in rehearsal for his upcoming performance in the Boarber of Seville.

Despite being one of foremost operatic talents of his species, Porkerotti has never forgotten his humble beginnings.

“Fame hasn’t changed me much,” he squeals, “sure my home is less of a pigsty these days and I must admit I’m partial to the odd truffle, but I’m never happier than when I’m playing backgammon with my mates or when I get to watch my beloved West Ham play.”

Like Trump, Porkerotti also hates women, immigrants and basically anyone who is different to him.

Still, he is a singing pig, so you’ve got to love him.

Indeed his latest role has already received positive reviews.

To quote one critic, “that’ll do pig, that’ll do.”

 

 

Beware Of The Kangadog

James Proclaims (4)

I haven’t blogged for ten days or so. It’s not been for a lack of inspiration but I’ve been quite busy for the last week and I haven’t had time to write any of my staggeringly brilliant ideas down.

I haven’t even had time for my ‘trademark’ bad poetry. Continue reading Beware Of The Kangadog
