This is one of those paintings done by a cat, right?
Um no honey not even a cat would lay claim to that.
I don’t know… it kind of looks like she might be coughing up a hairball.
I think it might have been done with a cat. Just dip a very patient cat in paint and daub away in your artistic ability.
My daughter won a painting at Ringling Bros. circus from the pre-show painted by Asia, the elephant, a couple years back and Asia has far more talent than this painter.
I thought Avatars were blue..
depends on the light source…
The helpful diagram on the right side of this painting (light bulb and RASPBERRY RED stone) don’t show how to get to blue. Maybe that’s from burning it?
That lightbulb was one of my more brilliant moments.
Brava for the artist for having a sense of humor and joining us!
I thought they could bend all four elements, personally.
The only worrying thing about this for me is that Rupert Grint is more convincing as a woman than as a man.
Noooo! Rupert Grint is adorable! *covers Rupert’s ears*.
No Thumbs Up for YOU!
I know. He kind of grew up to be hot. Or pretty. Or something. I wouldn’t have expected it.
Ant B saves the day!
Shut up, Malfoy!
The perfect accessory to bring out your swollen glands.
I don’t think her glands are swollen. I think her face is on the back of her head.
It looks like her head has rotated around to her back a la “The Exorcist”!
Does alexandrite cause this? Jesus, its worse that kryptonite!
I think this woman needs to get her thyroid checked. She seems more lumpy around the neck region than is healthy.
no i’d say she’s got deeper problems than that going on here than just some swollen glands.
also odd.. i thought alexandrite was usually purply/blue AND a gemstone?… either way, im not seeing the resemblance if that’s her selling point..
hmm maybe if she put in a little color shifting paint it would be more believable..
I think your presumption of the artists acheivement of realism in depiction of the subject is soooo sweet!

I’m rubbin one out to *that* tonight,
I’m sure if you Google “Rupert Grint fanart” you can get a better variety of material. Don’t forget to turn your safe search off.
Thought weeblet meant the goiter. But I suppose fan art would be just as disturbing.
That’s what I was thinking. And, then I thought maybe this was a whole new fetish thing…then I thought that I am really deeply unhip or something because I don’t get it. (Did I say unhip?)
I think you’re all incorrectly assuming the non-existence of Rupert Grint goiter fanart. Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
And someone has rule 34′d it.
I guess the wizarding world doesn’t have iodized salt.
Also needs to be on a throw pillow that’s being sold on Etsy.
Anything about goiters needs to be on throw pillows. Cautionary tales in crafting, they can never go wrong. Get more iodine in your diet, or expect for your chins to go long…
Astigmatism rears its ugly head.
if you turn the picture on its side, you can see how she fashioned a Berenstein Bear into a fashionable toupee.
upcycling, even in art.
Whoa, now I can’t not see it. I am traumatized, having seen Father Bear naked and rubbing up against that… creature.
*cough* Berenstain. *cough*
(Sorry, my inner librarian cannot let that pass.)
A little goiter wouldn’t hoiter.
But she won’t find fault with iodized salt.
So… was she a-salted or not?
hehe a-salted! Wait..what are you saying here?
But what the heck is up with her neck?
Looks like there’s a boat inside of her throat!
Okay I’ll stop now….
“I’m troin’ up ova here” – Andrew Dice Clay
I misquoted the Dice Man, here’s the original… http://youtu.be/BfuHwYTfva4?t=1m39s
…You must really like the down-thumbings.
I’m no physics professor, but there is no way that necklace is fitting over that head.
especially not w/ the sky cutting into her neck.
Ever heard of a clasp?
You can get $20 bucks for a painting that looks like that? I am heading over to the elementary school first thing tomorrow to invest in some art to resell… Hey kid how about a pack of gum for that painting?
I teach art, and trust me, I have several students who could produce stuff 10x better than this.
Time to open your own little sweatshop…
I think Etsy calls those ‘collectives’ now.
OMG you should have heard the snort I just made!
Borg collectives can’t produce art since they aren’t able to be human or understand art. Etsy has collectives? I am going to have to look that shit up.
resistance is futile
Do you teach your kids to be assholes?
That’s amazing. Math has never made more sense.
I am really confused as to the Avatar reference which seems to be theme in the artist’s work.
Also, what is with the blood splatter?
I happened when someone cut off the guy-at-the-bar’s face.
Don’t forget both of their arms.
you beat me to it emo
I really do think it is a scene from Carrie–see the blood on the chair? And then she went all psycho and shot blood all over the cafe. He mom is in the other picture with her goiter waiting for her to come home. Time for us all to go to our closet and pray–Eve was weak, Eve was weak
Cheekbones to die for. Too bad about the chin.
And what is going on with that odd angle her neck takes on the left, below the jewelry?
It’s as if the guillotine didn’t quite “cut it”.
She was a passenger on ghost ship.
extra cheekbones in her neck?
also, does anyone else see a little Hillary Clinton in the final product?
When did alexandrite become the June birthstone? I thought it was pearl.
It’s also moonstone. Birth stones are tricky like that.
I always thought pearl was May? Either way, the Alexandrite piece I have looks bluish/turqouise in natural light.
May is emerald
Alexandrite looks different under different types of lights, but different pieces also have different colors. The more expensive pieces exhibit the green/red colors, but the more common pieces are blue/purple.
Pearl is the main birthstone for June. Alexandrite is the secondary birthstone.
My mom’s a jeweler. Her birthday also happens to be in June. *shrug*
Pearls aren’t really gemstones, so a lot of birthstone-style jewelry uses alexandrite instead.
So, the light bulb indicates her shoulder is getting an idea?
OMG I went to the shop to see what else was there!!! http://www.etsy.com/listing/45413865/cafe-scene-in-virtual-world Is that a scene from Carrie???
that one is so bloody bizarre that i would buy it were it cheaper. at almost fifty bucks, though & sadly, it’s gotta belong to someone else. it should, too. wow.
theres a talent here unlike any i have ever seen before.
otoh, if you wanna see a different talent unlike any other seen before but, um, better, along w/ a whole endless mess o’ professionally severed limbs, you cannot not not beat:
St Sebastian sans His Head
not to mention:
duggie fields, home at last
WTF?!?! Holy Balls! How have I never found this Duggie Fields person before? This is the most bizarre site I’ve ever seen, love the voice over…
Is this guy for real? If so, why do all of his “acrylic on canvas” art pieces from “the 70s” look like they were done with MS Paint?
Oh jesus … my good god … I swear I see a bloody handprint on one table (on the left), and a bloody cock’n'ball print on the chair on the right.
What in hell do they serve in that cafe?
I like it. A lot. Too bad I’ve already gone over my artwork quota of bloody cafe scenes for this year, though. There’s simply no room for one more in my house.
I wonder if the lack of blood on the woman in the foreground and man who’s walking away means they lost their arms prior to going to the cafe. The blood must not be from their limb loss at all. Makes one wonder. This is a very interesting piece, indeed.
I hope my kids get me this for Mother’s Day.
A goiter for Mother’s Day means you can say that your kids are literally a pain in the neck.
that’s an awesome Adele painting.
Now now That’s just mean.
I’m not knocking Adele, I think she’s great. but she’s honestly the first thing I thought when I saw that painting.
Except that Adele is gorgeous. So that just makes you an asshole.
I just do not understand how defensive people get about Adele. Especially with how much she tends to insult everybody. I don’t dislike her, it’s just interesting how emotional people get about her.
where in anything that I’ve said so far have I said she’s NOT gorgeous? that painting looks like someone with limited motor skills tried to make a portrait of her, and it made me laugh, so I made the joke.
I wasn’t trying to knock her appearance, I swear.
I’m going to put “Adele is gorgeous” in the spam filter. I can only hear it 10,000,000 times before it loses all meaning.
I’d just like to reiterate that I was knocking the PAINTING, not her actual appearance.
jesus. you’d think I said she was a fat cow who deserved to burn in eternal hellfire.
Who’s Adele? Not my great aunt. She’s been dead for 40 years.
Isn’t Adele like 24 years old? Everyone is gorgeous at 24, it’s a freakin given. So blah.
I was nowhere near gorgeous at 24. Unless you mean gorge-ous, as in everywhere I sit turns into a gorge because of my tremendous ass.
My thoughts exactly!
That is my Mother In Law. No lie. I recognize her smirk. And her chin.
I gotta tell you, I kinda love that one. You can really see this woman’s personality come through. It made me smirk.
Color that one’s hair red and it looks like Madame Medusa from Disney’s The Rescuers.
What’s with all the “alternate birthstones” in his/her gallery?
They go with the alternate universe inside the artist’s head silly.
How is Alexandrite important enough to be in the header here? I might have gone with ‘painting’…definitely not ‘art’ though.
Oh. My. Goiter.
Charlotte Rae needs Iodine in her diet.
Her neck looks almost serpentine, like it’s a flexible stalk. Reminds me of the monster from ‘The Thing.’
I think the funniest part is that she represented the fact that the stone turns red in some lights by painting a lightbulb and a red square in the corner.
Thank you for explaining that! I had no idea what those were for!
I want this lady staring at me while I go to the bathroom.
I want to hide it in a friend’s closet and wait for the terrified phone call.
Your idea is better. Proceed.
Maybe this is a painting Roger made while he was tripping on LSD? Joanie…Joanie….is that a goiter in your neck or are you just glad to see me?
It took me a while, but I finally got the Mad Men reference you were going for. Thumbs up all the way!
Ohh I get it… after reading her shop description, I see she is on SecondLife. So this is an avatar of the socially-repressed-stay-at-home-in-mom’s-basement sort.
Oh lord, I tried SecondLife once. My avatar fell through a solid-looking slab of concrete in a park and got trapped in a rocky hole. I guess they booby-trap the place to keep intruders out?
Anyway, it might explain why she doesn’t know what a real person looks like!
Small grain of truth I guess. Sigh.
This is the comment that intrigues me.
Harry Goiter and the Damn-That-Seller-Has-Some-Stones.
Harry Goiter and the MRI of Azkaban
OMG… that… is… spot on! Ron Weasley with a goiter, ha!
I swear I saw this exact painting hanging in my chiropractor’s office with “before” engraved underneath it.
I like the Norway Cats painting, but then I’m the crazy cat lady of Leona Valley and also bought the ghost cat, thanks for finding that one for me! >^..^<
OMG i’m dying. Did anyone see the ‘aquamarine’ painting listed in the store? It’s just as good. LOL
I’m also seriously loving the hell out of her Traditional English Trifle painting.
It’s kind of a cross between Warhol and Thiebaud.
Is that supposed to be a fly squashed onto the inside of the bowl?
I though that was something on my iPhone screen. Now I know why it didn’t come off.
It’s STARING at me. Why does it have so many eyes? D:
Those aren’t eyes! They’re…
Thanks, I like that one too
Wow. I kinda like that one too!
Whoops! I do have an original thought in my head occasionally – just not often pre-tequila and definitely not during exams week.
What I MEANT to say was: There is a graphic quality to that painting that it very appealing to me.
It does have a lot of appeal…now I’ll need to go check out the rest of the shop, especially since the artist is cool enough to come over here and not be in a huff.
I saw that too, and she gets 2 thumbs up from me for rolling with the punches.
I would buy the hell out of that painting if it wouldn’t blow the rest of my ramen noodles and peanut butter budget through July!
I have been trying to submit things on here forever now, and something finally made it! Yay!
I personally enjoy the fact that one of her “alexandrite” earrings appears to be below her earlobe, somewhat close to her bulbous neck.
On a similar note, here’s a little something for the May babies like me out there. http://www.etsy.com/listing/80439899/avatar-wearing-emerald-may-birthstone
Perhaps this was created on wax and looked OK before it melted a bit?
I hope the painting changes color to transparent in the light
Yes, but then at night it’ll be waiting for you there in the darkness.
An ideal of beauty that we all can meet and somehow surpass?
She looks like Margaret Blaine/Overly-long-name-Slitheen.
Yes, if she didn’t have time to get back in the skin suit properly, maybe!
I particularly like this one!
I love how it looks as though part of her face is trying to run away. Either that, or she’s melting – à la Raiders of The Lost Ark!
Once again: I always think the reason that I have a boring office job is that I’m not a good enough artist to [attempt to] do it for a living.
And, once again, something comes up that suggests I might want to give it a try because, even though I suck, I don’t suck this badly.
But she’s only had four sales since 2009. I don’t think she’s making a living at it either.
Everything is what you make it. I have two art degrees and worked in museums and galleries. I chose to have a boring office job (current law student). Many pieces in this seller’s shop are appealing and interesting.
Don’t disparage yourself, make art. Make lots of it. I know many people who paid money to learn how to do it, are great artists, and work the old 9-5 with shows on the weekend. Just don’t feel like you are entitled not to work for a wage because you suck less at something.
Goiter. Jayzus Martha & Mary. 27 years in the medical field and that word still makes me shudder and stick my fingers in my ears. At least it looks the way it sounds, esp. in that photo.
I’m seriously considering purchasing
Just, that far left cat’s expression.
I think I just hurt myself laughing. I was all like, “Aww, look at the widdle kittens” and then “GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!”
who needs antidepressants?! this painting leaves me feeling like rainbows and butterflies
Hope all of my fans will take a peek at my latest work. Some of you irk me but I love you all.
You’re a great sport! Come on back any time. And I do seriously love that trifle painting.
Oh, this is sad. I looked at that and said: “That’s my friend Peggy!” I apparently have unfortunate looking friends.
My brother said it reminds him of Peggy Bundy. It’s my avatar
I think the Regretsy math needs a little work; it looks more like it should be a minus sign (-) than a plus (+)
May I say one more thing before this is all filed away in the archives of history? True humor is self-deprecating. That’s the most important idea I learned from my Minnesota Nice and Scandinavian heritage. Norwegians like to tell “dumb guy” jokes on themselves. At the same time, anyone who does artwork (and we all do from time to time) and puts it out there for the world to see invites criticism. Sometimes we create something wonderful but most of the time we bomb. My advice is, I guess, don’t be an armchair artist. Participate and create. This has been a most interesting finale to a dull Minnesota winter.
Is there a message here?
