Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Leslie Monk, the long suffering.

20-Mar 2004 Roy Litchenstein
Am I in trouble with the Estate of Roy Litchenstein.
Roy Litchensteins Art, that is the real stuff that hangs in the Haywood Gallery just now, is in fact to some degree a breach of copyright, since some of it is not so much influenced by, but more a reproduction of, the real real thing, that is the comic book illustration, drawn by the comic book illustrator who actually drew that "WHAM" image, for example. So, The Roy Litchenstein Estate has slapped a Copyright on that "WHAM" image. How do you like those apples?
But if you are at all familiar with the real/unreal "Wham", hanging in the Haywood, you will realise that what I have published here is not a Roy Litchenstein, but a Leslie Monk. It's obvious. Can't you see the differences? The colours, The Dots. Go ahead, .....Sue me.

"Roy Lichtenstein" show at the Hayward. I made this noise two days later.

Lichtenstein' art is art about art
Art about art about art about art
He tells you a joke in a visual vein
Repeats the same joke, again and again.
A joke about art about art about paint
If you laugh too hard, it' make you faint.
Roy Lichtenstein likes a nice black line
Roy Lichtenstein likes a nice black outline
Fill in the gaps with a dot matrix
Primary school colours, popular comics
For one whole lifetime, he' had something to do
Likewise Patrick Caulfield, Michael Craig-Martin too
Litchensteins art is art about art
And art about art is Art about art
Art about art and Art about art
Art about art and Art about art
Art about art is a ponderous thing
He made a self portrait, self regarding
It was art about art about art about him
Art about art about art about him
Art about art about Roy Lichtenstein
Roy likes a line of the thick black outline kind
Art about art about Roy Lichtenstein
