About the Book

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. Electric Dreams also includes many never-seen-before paintings.

“Screamingly inventive.”

“Jim has an eye for the bizarre - and more detail than Paint should allow.”
- Simon Usborne, Independent
