Inspired by the comedy (and wisdom) of Tim Minchin!

"Maybe it's going to be something small like a seed. You know what i mean? like uh... um uh... peace seed. Like a seed of peace that would be planted... in the region like... um somewhere with... rich... you know "soil"? I know next to nothing about metaphorical horticulture but i guess you just whack it in there and hope that it grows up into like a bush or better like a tree with wide... wide ranging branches... with some... peace leaves i guess. Something that would shade... or that would bare um fruit.
The fruit of peace like um like a peace of fruit."

Much love and thanks to Tim for sharing his creativity and inspiring creativity alike!

I've been looking all over the internet for some sort of art to hang up in my room. I found several, but constantly told myself "It's not worth the money, stop spending your paychecks on shit you don't need."

I saw this, completely ignored that inner voice telling me not to blow all the money I don't have, and immediately bought it. I freaking LOVE it. I shall be hanging it on my wall as soon as I get the print :)

Thank you kindly for being so amazing and enabling my art spree.

wow!! you are so very very welcome! i'm touched you like it so much (i'm quite fond :D) could i ask you a totally selfish favor? might you be able to take a little snapshot of it on your wall when you get it? i've never had art in anyone's home (who's not directly related to me) that would really make my year!

I'd love to have a shirt with this on it, but I don't have any money, I'm afraid. :[
But I'm sure you'd still get some buyers if you made it a shirt. ^^
