When I looked at this it seems like that person being quoted was actually referencing a therapist who’d said something like this on Twitter so I felt a bit odd about it after that.

I was going to post this earlier. Quite liked the basic idea of Jim’ll Paint It for the first dozen or so, but it really should have been retired.

I think mostly it feels to me like a piece for one person in the public domain that others might enjoy. This is definitely the dodgiest I’ve seen but the ones where I don’t really care I figure the person who asked for it will be happy with it. I mean it’s not like he’s getting published in the Daily Mail every day so we’re actually seeing a newspaper elevate his stuff and try to imply it’s a masterpiece or whatever.

I mean it’s worth pointing out that most of what he does is a request, and people overwhelmingly go for a “celebrity x doing activity y with celebrity z” format. So if it feels a bit repetitive and ‘edgy’ at times, the blame is on us, the body public, for being so dull really.

But otherwise, I dunno - the guy has turned a silly online thing into his actual job, and he clearly has a great deal of skill at what he does. He seems aware of how lucky he is and seems to be generally a good egg, eg

In the grand scheme of things, overall, I dunno, :man_shrugging:

It’s also really charming how much better he’s got at painting over time. A real lesson to us all in how practice makes a difference.
