This is literally the best thing we've ever seen, literally

Jim’ll paint anything you want. Anything.

WE HAVE A new favourite Tumblr, and it goes by the name of Jim’ll Paint It.

Jim’s MO is simple. You ask him to paint something – anything – and he’ll do it, using only Microsoft Paint.

That in itself is impressive, as we all know Microsoft Paint can be a pain in the arse, but the real beauty lies is in Jim’s ability to incorporate every requested element into each picture.

Like this, for example:

Please paint me bat in a leotard being distracted by a violin sticking out of a rainbow coloured bottle bank next to a three legged toffee crisp holding a mushroom and half a wasp. In the background is a turtle having a tennis lesson, and an upside down Taj Mahal covered in ears.

Or this one:

Please paint me Moby throwing ninja stars at a melancholic badger whilst eating a Papa John’s Pizza in Lidl in Shrewsbury. Moby is wearing an Admiral England shirt, Bermuda shorts and 18-hole DMs. The badger is sat in Spielberg’s directors chair and smoking a pipe.

This one should be framed, frankly:

Please paint me a scene with Ross Kemp feeding Keith Chegwin a mandarin, they are both in their underpants and are in France.

Beautiful, aren’t they?  You can send your own requests to Jim via the Tumblr itself or his Facebook page.  He literally does exactly what you ask him to.

We love literal interpretations of things, like this poster for Les Mis made by the good people over at

…or the fine piece of work that is Total Eclipse of the Heart: Literal Video Version.

We laughed.  Literally.
