Synopsis

Electric Dreams The Collected Works of Jim'll Paint It by Jim'll Paint It

You name it. I'll paint it. On Paint. Jim'll Paint. It is an enigma. As he says on his wildly successful Tumblr and Facebook pages: Got something in your brain that you'd really like to see with your eyes? Just ask and if I like the sound of it I'll paint it for you using incredibly high tech and sophisticated MS Paint software. Generating hundreds of thousands of requests, Jim has painted everything from Brian Blessed punching a polar bear to Mary and Joseph being turned away from a Premier Inn by Lenny Henry, and his recent picture of Vladimir Putin as every member of the Village People became an internet sensation. Here for the first time are the selected works of one of the finest and most popular artists of our day.

About the Author

The title is a pun on Jimmy Savile's long-running television series Jim'll Fix It. The blog consists of humorous artwork painted by Murray using Microsoft Paint, by request from Tumblr users. Murray has produced over 100 paintings since 2013. The first piece featured dinosaurs painting people in an art class.
