Oh Mum!! It’s Just a Scribble!!


I just wanted to share this with you. My Darling Daughter is studying Biomedical Science at University. She absolutely loves science, is completely absorbed by her subject, and is so passionate when she talks about it that even the most disinterested of parties finds themselves captivated. The written word is her weaker point, and to my amusement, she will send me drafts of her assignments, so that I can proof-read them, because apparently, I am good at that stuff!  It doesn’t occur to her  that I may as well be reading instructions for building the starship Enterprise. In Kling-on!!

She is bordering on obsessive about her studies, and becomes very stressed as a result, so she has taken to drawing and painting in order to relax. She is a huge fan of the British street artist, Banksy, and has done several very technically  accurate copies. So when I spotted this, in the background  of a photo in her digs, I assumed it was another. I pointed it out, remarking that I hadn’t seen that particular copy before. Transpires it is her own work, very much *in the style of*, but a total original. She is quite dismissive of it, but I think it is stunning. What do you think? I apologise for the quality, as I said , this has been lifted from the background of a photograph. It was all drawn freehand.

My daughter can do Banksy

My daughter can outbank Banksy!!!

  1. Wow! That is an awesome drawing! I like the style. I haven’t heard of Banksy, but I like it a lot. Your daughter has some great talent 🙂


    • Google him, he is incredible!! I’m thinking, summer break, she can sit on Main Street and sell them!! Hahaha!! She would rather eat her own arms!!! 🙂


      • Hehehe that’s too funny 🙂 It is so cool that she paints to de-stress. I should have done that at university- it would have been way more fun that having a melt down!


  2. She could be a Banksy-esque scientific art commando – dropping knowledge bombs about biomedicalities on the masses! She could inform people about the importance of vaccinations with clever, graphically-stimulating street art.


    • Oh wow Nate!!!! She would love that idea, I have to tell her!! She does voluntary work abroad through the summer, last year Cambodia, previous year Nepal, teaching sexual health to teenagers!! Both times she has had to design a roadside billboard about condoms! Although this year she is in Vietnam, perhaps the image may not be QUITE right. Still, love the idea!! It goes into my ‘nicked from Nate’ box, along with LLooFA!!


  3. great concept of helicopter love bombings, draw well by the looks. Proud Mumma is justified. Obviously takes after you in the talent department, just on a different tangent.
