This drug-addicted co-worker never paid me for the painting – despite it taking 200+ hours to complete. What sort of cunts are these people? Scum. Total fucking scum.

  • This painting is for sale for $1. I don’t know who would want it, but I am loathe to burn it.
  • Maybe I should paint in big letters Charlie Chum and his whore of a wife – SCUM in big red letters.
  • Charlie asked me to paint one of his wedding photos. And I told him before I started – ‘err that’s not the best picture.’ And for the next six months he strung me along with reasons why he couldn’t pay as we agreed – certain milestones would require agreed monies. I trusted the little bastard because I worked in the same company.


Dimensions: 136x92cm.
Painted: 2010.
Materials: Acrylic on MDF board.

Availability: For sale $1.

The story behind Newly Made Husband Being Told Off

The less said, the better. This is a commissioned portrait. I was asked by a co-worker to paint this particular image despite being told it wasn’t the right image. It’s obvious – it looks like the groom (Charlie Chum) has just been admonished for being a naughty boy.

This drug-addicted co-worker never paid me for the painting – despite it taking 200+ hours to complete.

After this incident, I have vowed never to do another commissioned piece of art again.
