The more ugly, older, more cantankerous, more ill and poorer I become, the more I try to make amends by making my colours more vibrants, more balanced and beaming.

Kirby and Fine Art, PART 1!

Click each image for the name of the original picture (on the right) and the artist.

While subbing episode 77, ‘Royal Acadedemy’, I was determined to find out what each of the paintings used in the episode were from.

It’s interesting to note that none of the versions used in the episode are exact copies! Many of them look like they’ve been completely redrawn rather than just having filters applied.

Fun fact-  The dimensions of the Mona Lisa are about 30" x 20".

…Which means Kirby really is only about 8″ tall here!
