Painting by Numbers Cubist Mascot

Readers' Art

Dear Cubist Mascot,

I noticed that earlier this month a reader sent in some artwork of the Junior Mascot to celebrate his love of fun, games, and childhood. (Re. Dot to Dot Junior Mascot) I thought this was a really good idea. So much so in fact that I decided I’d pretty much copy it! I work in television, so I’m used to copying other peoples ideas! Obviously I made a few subtle changes, as any good plagiarist does, and the resulting artwork was this…

It’s a picture of yourself in the style of a painting by numbers kit to reflect your love of art. Pretty cool, isn’t it? Although, given the underhand way in which I came up with the idea for it, perhaps I should have dedicated it to the Sneaky Mascot instead! Ho hum! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this piece of ripped off art, much in the same way that TV programme commissioners enjoy anything with a celebrity panel, drawn out judging processes, contestants with sob stories, sticking bunches of people in houses, etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum…

Yours sincerely,
Eleanor Stephenson. Aged 28.

Thank you Eleanor. Your artwork is very much appreciated, even if it did start off as someone else’s idea. After all, it’s not as if I invented cubism!

Always enjoying the art,
Cubist Mascot :)
