PENCIL FOOD OH - more from the messed up walls that are our Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery

"Basically, our kids destroying our home, one work of art at a time..."
Let's keep strolling down the mess strewn corridors of The Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery...

#7 - PENCIL FOOD OH



Graphite 5B Pencil (we think) and Nutella (we think) on B&Q Value Matt Emulsion

We think this is a companion piece to "Pencil Food".

It appeared on the opposite side of the same wall.

There looks like an "O" and even possibly an "E" in a nod to the identity of The Artist.

Or maybe it's a sigh. 

We think it's a sigh.


All the Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery is here... Enjoy!

(This never happens to anyone else whatsoever. But if it does, feel free to leave a comment below or tweet me a picture...)

PENCIL FOOD - another chance to relive the hell from our Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery

"Basically, our kids destroying our home, one work of art at a time..."
Here's something else from the walls of our Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery...

#6 - PENCIL FOOD



Graphite 5B Pencil (we think) and Nutella (we think) on B&Q Value Matt Emulsion

A temporary pre-dirty protest.

All the Toddler "Art" is here... Enjoy!

FREEDOM CORNER - our house being wrecked as Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery

"Basically, our kids destroying our home, one work of art at a time..."
Another example from The Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery...

#5 - FREEDOM CORNER



Graphite 5B Pencil (we think) on B&Q Value Matt Emulsion

Interesting that the artist has chosen pencil for this work.

(No pencils are made available to The Artist.
We have no idea where it came from or where it went).



A mocking echo of the decorative willow sticks behind which the work appears.

We think this says (with temporary impudence) that the sticks may be contained, but my freeflowing lines are not.


The full Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery is here... Enjoy!

The Sacred and The Profane


Writers’ Room Guru Brent Forrester explained a basic theory of comedy that coupling the sacred with the profane is usually a good way to find the funny.



On this podcast, he relays that
“Most jokes have at their core, a contrast between the sacred and the profane.”


The High and The Low in contrast:
Religion, old people, babies, funerals...
...combined with sex, the toilet, violence, rock and roll etc. etc. etc.

So for example, urban hip hop breakdancing cute babies
(like in ‘that’ water advert).



They’re also a good way of generating moments of super nobility
(angelic choirs singing hymns on mountain tops)
or super evil...
(illuminated advertising street bins).

I’m going to try and start lists of The Sacred and The Profane, and bank them on a new page.


SACRED



Old People
Funeral
Classical music
Statue
War hero
Nobel prize
Literature
Archaeology
Babies
Pregnant Mums
PROFANE



Rock star
Porn Star
Fly hole
Faeces
Noise
Pollution
Drugs
Thieving
Urine
Blow job


The complete list of The Sacred And The Profane is here...
