Once I've cropped the captions off this advert I ripped off from the supermarket and mounted it I reckon it'll be a nice little earner. :)

Hmm, this is interesting, some wood carvings of potatoes.

Now I'm not one for wood carving, but if I pop down to Aldi and buy a bag of spuds for £1.29, I should stand to more than triple my expense by placing the potatoes on some of the planks of wood lying around the gallery. You could say they'll sell like hot potatoes. :)

I came across this sculpture of a boulder by John Frankland today. Fuck me, this looks like money for old rope. I'm off to the quarry on Monday morning. :)

I saw this review of a Premier Inn in Stoke with an unmade bed and of course I was straight down there with the van. I checked in, backed the transport up to the room window, got the bed loaded and did a runner. What a result, this should be a nice little earner. :)

I've been looking for inspiration lately by taking a little job in Sainsbury's. I came up with this number which I've got on sale for £10k. :)

I just drew this, an homage to the great Jeremy Corbyn. I expect to earn several thousand pounds from it and anyone who doesn't like it is a bit weird to be honest. :wtf:

I don't believe that's one of yours, it's signed 'MLF' and dated 2015.

That's a good point and it's just put another £500 on the price.

Spent a couple of hours chatting to Rick Shaw at his gallery a few weeks ago, never once mentioning this place.

I ended up buying this, I'm five figures worse off but it looks nice in the hall. :)

Here's the latest work I've got in at the gallery. If you like Das Boat by The Fall this shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

I knocked this up using photoshop then got an online silk screen printing firm to do me 20 copies. My punters are all going to think that they're getting an original and at £10k a pop it will be a nice little earner.

My old radio gave up the ghost today. Just as I was going to chuck it out a punter walked in and paid two grand for it. Ha!

Sold a painting today for over a million quid, but the money doesn't equate to the art. Ha!

Watching Wallace and Gromit has inspired me to put Crayola to canvass, this should fetch four figures easily.
