LOOM BANDS TOILET SEAT - the latest act of art from our Friday Night Gallery of Toddler Art

So we're back to adding new items to our Friday Night Toddler Art Gallery...
"Our kids basically destroying our house, one room at a time."

Tonight we unveil...

#67 LOOM BANDS TOILET SEAT

Loom Twister HGL Loom Bands, Red, Black, Yellow, Orange; with Tesco Picnic Fork; on Focus DIY (R.I.P.) Wooden Toilet Seat, Antique Pine



This was THE new medium for this year.

It's hard to tell if the even scattering of Loom Bands around the house is intentional or accidental.

This is the first work that can be confirmed as deliberate.



And its unfinished state reinforces the sense of irony we've come to expect from The Artists.

Mmmmmm. Can't wait to get that fork back down to where it belongs from the toilet.


Our entire collection of toddler art is all here...

Thinking up the next Red Magazine Brag-ticle business ideas for my wife - #TightwadDad

- Thinking up the next Red Magazine Brag-ticle business ideas for my wife -



Life in 2014:
I haven't read my Wife's Red Magazine much - but when I do - they always have articles about someone who’s moved with to the country their husband (because of his job) and is bringing up their many kids while also successfully starting up an innovative and successful business.

I want to impress my missus by coming up with other self-start-up business ideas that would attract a Red Magazine braggy article (Bragticle).

But so far I've only come up with:
Making bespoke cupcake cases.

Engineering the perfect bread bin.

Trainer Tailoring.

Car Interiors Feng-Shui.

Shelf Storage Architect.

Designing Handbag-bags (bags for handbags).

Bikini Topiary.


One day I'll crack it.

ADVENTURES OF A TIGHTWAD DAD begins right here...

WHICH WAY UP? - the new thing in our Friday Night Late Night GRANDY Art Gallery...

#66 WHICH WAY UP? - Friday Night Grandy Art Gallery

Paint, various, on wood, source unknown.

This is our first piece of "Grandy" art.

Any ideas? Which way up is your favourite?



We were tipping out an old workbench - used continuously by The Artists' Grandy.

And, to us, we just couldn't look away from it.



Those paint rings. Those notches.

He did that.



Trouble is, we have no idea which way up it should go.

More stuff from my lists of the sacred and the profane...

A good way to sometimes find the funny, is to slam together something that is sacred with something that is profane.

The high and the low.

So I'm building the lists, and here is the next batch.

By the way, I've been jazzing these up with pictures... but this one was slightly difficult.

The best I could come up with for "Priest" was a picture of Michael Landon from Highway To Heaven.

And for tattoos... I for a moment wondered if someone had ever got a tattoo of Michael Landon.

I love my work. Behold.

SACRED



Clergy
Bishop
Priest
Angels
Choir
Art Gallery
Library
Museum
Playground
Church
PROFANE



Skid mark
Brown mud
Fertilizer
Bad smell
Prolapse
Colostomy bag
Flood
Tattoos
Soot
Smoke


Complete list of Sacred And Profane banked here
