Don’t forget donkeys this Christmas. Remember if it weren’t for one little donkey, this whole thing wouldn’t have started.
So here’s a donkey nativity scene. Merry Christmas.
This is a very special guest post by the wonderful francophone Katherine Blurgh. It depicts a tragic scene where a donkey is trapped inside a house and can’t get to the lovely warm pie that has been left on the window ledge outside.
Brings me to tears every time.
Donkey in Danger
This piece is of a donkey lost in New York as hurricane Sandy approached. The donkey has not been seen since and there is a $1000 reward, dead or alive.
This piece was definitely not stolen from the artist’s muse, and any similarities to any of her art work is purely a freaky coincidence. And stuff.
This is a somber piece entitled: Donkey Death
It is based on a tragic real life event, the day Ben Kirby convinced a donkey that they were naturally very competent swimmers.
This image was taken just hours before Donkey’s proposed transfer to Manchester United, where he’d wear the famous number 7 shirt, fell through.
Later that month, the shirt number was given to Valencia, the Spanish costal city, and Donkey signed for Paris Saint-Germain where he would replace Edin (short for Edinburgh) Dzeko as the most expensive and highly paid donkey in world football.
This piece is called POPdonkey, and is inspired by the same digital camera filter setting that is said to have inspired Andy Warhol (who took his name from seminal band The Dandy Warhols - he wasn’t very original really) Circa Autumn 2012
This piece is entitled “Donkey having lunch in Pisa”
The artist was inspired by a recent trip to Europe where, he too, ate lunch.
This is a very subtle donkey piece that rewards the patient and the inquisitive.
Based on a hypothetical journey to the National Memorial Arboretum (circa November/December 2011) to see the famous Memorial to Simon the Cat, incorporated in to this piece, hightlighted in this version, you can see the donkey is actually “moo-ing” and further to the right you can see a couple debating what noise the donkey made, and the especially inquisitive may notice a rare self-portrait of the artist in the top corner of the image (being called a retard.)
A delightful private piece, with in an insight to the artist’s incredible humour.
