Random: MS Paint Artist Imagines “Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Team” Mashup
You might not have heard of Jim’ll Paint It — but you’ve probably seen his work. His real name is James Murray, and he’s an artist from Bristol whose chosen medium is… MS Paint. Yeah, the one from your school’s creaky old Windows computer that you used to draw terrible squares with.
If you think to yourself, “there’s no way that someone can make good art with MS Paint,” you’d largely be right — but Jim’ll Paint It has built an entire business off of taking requests, the more specific the better, for him to draw in Paint. His latest request is an intriguing mash-up between seminal 3D Zelda game, Ocarina of Time, and cosy British archaeology show, Time Team. Ocarina of Time Team. Get it?
It’s not the first time that Jim’ll Paint It has referenced video games with terrible puns — we’ve also got Coronation Street Fighter, and Eastenders‘ Barry-O-Kart:
If you like Jim’s work, you can get it on your walls or on your bod from his shop. Fair warning to any non-Brits — most of these are indecipherable references to British culture. I mean, look at this one. It’s Colin the Caterpillar as a Kaiju. I bloody love it.
And if you’re still wondering what the heck Time Team is, then get ready to educate yourself, friends — they’ve got their own YouTube channel. You’re welcome:
