November 15, 2008: Sea Lion Artists
Bored with critters that just sit around looking cute? Turns out critters get bored, just sitting around looking cute.
Would have been more productive to get them to paint the park, but I suppose they can sell the paintings, and hire somebody to do that.
I've seen elephants and monkeys painting, but I don't remember any others.

Yeah, sea... instead of just lion around, they did something productive and pretty-fied blank canvases.

I think he is trying to paint what the aftermath of his last penguin meal looked like....

Thanks for the link, SquidGirl. Unfortunately, Koopa has retired.

I was all set to be a hater... but it's pretty good folk art, when you think about it. Also her work has gotten much more complicated. When you look back at like #23, it's obvious she's just put paint on her rack and mashed it onto the canvas, but now she's studied it all and come up with something much more interesting. I think if I were a professional with a professional office I would buy one of these and put it in the lobby.

I agree, the early ones looked like boobies pogo with different colors, but then she got creative and came up with patterns I can't figure out just how she did them.

I think she used the same "mashing" technique, but rather than coloring the nipple exclusively with a different color, I think she drew vertical lines with the different color. They do inspire me to 1) follow UT and if I had a professional office buy one and put it in the lobby 2) slather paint on my own breasts and see what kind of art I can make. When I came across her work a while ago I saw a collage she did with credit card clippings. It was pretty amazing!

I have several elephant paintings in my place. they can paint the most amazing things. I have a painting of an elephant painted by an elephant. He even put blonde hair on my head. I have the most beautiful paintings. They are my most treasured items.
