The artist is also known as the Shitty Watercolour. When he started out he felt his paintings weren’t very good, but over a period of time he built a following on social media and his art improved dramatically.

In 2012 the artist used social media, for a minimum $10 donation you could have your face painted by the artist, to raise money for a charity that provides good drinking water.

The artist has created commissions for Wired magazine.

Although the artist was not very good when he began his artistic journey, this was his own admission. Over years and after much critic on social media the artist has evolved to an astounding professional illustrator. What a great story!
