Flushed with success at my recent foray into workplace safety, I decided to take more steps to improve the lives of my colleagues.
I noticed a long time ago that one of the bathrooms I regularly use at work has a small A5-sized frame with a glass front that faces you as you enter. I assume it was out there to hold notices from our facilities department – maybe a sign saying “we clean these toilets regularly” or “if you’re unhappy with the state of this bathroom you should see some of the others on this floor”. But as far as I know, it’s always been empty, possibly for years.
What this frame needs is a picture, and I have just the thing. I printed one out and stuck it in the frame. Now, instead of a joyless beige bathroom, toilet-bound staff members are greeted with the sight of one of the world’s finest artworks, placed there by me to lift their soul.
I don’t know how many of them have noticed it yet, but they are very welcome.

Given how they took to the ‘mangoes’ sign, I expect some grump will whisk this away soon enough.
It’s been up for over a month now without any sign of the joyless authorities crushing my artistic vision. We’ll see whether it lasts.
To really seal the deal in a wigwam, I reckon you should pin a photocopy of your middle finger (not a findger, never a findger) underneath so if anyone dares crush your sound and vision they’ll be punished, albeit in a minor way.
Amazing idea. A Mona Lisa with an easter egg. Fixing Da Vinci’s half arsed job. Yes.
Mona Li-ster Egg
Love it. Although it did make me think of an egg with Dave Lister inside it.
That’s a drawing waiting to happen and it just so happens that I may have the shonky skills to whack it off.
Is it time for another Grey-on-Grey™ McIver special?
You know you love it really. The grey really brings out the grey of the grey. You can’t quite the essence of something without releasing the grey.
If you draw an egg with Dave Lister inside it, I will personally put it in an empty frame somewhere at work and post a picture of it here.
That sounds like a challenge and I don’t walk away from a challenge unless there’s a pint of Cheeky Dragon in my hand and fifty quid in my pocket…
