    When I did arts and craft shows I would add things to god awful motel art. I tried to keep it fairly small and quiet. Sea monsters sneaking up on fishermen, bear traps near the pastoral cows, dragons about to napalm peasant hovels. Most were hard to spot. I wonder if anyone ever saw the works, but if they did I think they would have gotten a kick out of them.

  4. abby ur so stupid. bruh he wasn’t complimenting her, he was being sarcastic🤦🏻‍♀️

  5. You don’t paint over other people’s art. No matter how bad it is. Especially nowadays when you could have just as easily done this on a computer with the same results. All this does is inspire other douches to start painting on other people art. Sooner or later some retard will be paining over a Salvador Dali painting thinking it’s funny.

  6. ….he bought them. He paid for them. He owns them. He can put them u p, paint over them, urinate on them, or burn them. It doesn’t matter, they’re his.

    actually they aren’t his to alter and then copy and publish, unless they were specifically commissioned for that purpose, the original artist would retain the rights. a copyright is good for 100 years after the artist’s death. it’s also rather rude. he’s basically saying , you suck, i’m better. he’s mocking and ridiculing someone else’s work. it’s disrespectful of another’s honest efforts. we all can’t be famous artists, it’s the effort that counts. it’s akin to mocking a disabled person.

  8. I couldn’t tell if the girl was part of the painting or an addition the art was so good

  9. I would love, Love, LOVE, ❤️ to buy every single one of these (and any others not featured in this article, too)!!!!! They’re just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO indescribably crazy-mad wicked awesome badass!!!!!

  10. Ok so here is my thoughts on the whole “him painting over art is disrespectful” and “its rude to the artist” I agree with MontagIsSelfRichous, it’s his art and he buys it from thrift shops so that artist isn’t exactly doing themselves any favours. You guys overreact so much about tiny things and he has payed for it so it is his to do what he wants with the.

    this art is 10/10 the best art I’ve ever seen so haters just stay quiet in your tiny led light decorated bedroom and leave artists alone this is his/her style of art. 🤬😤
