As you may of heard, Knotrob Ford is in some serious hot water! Reports say that the oft-maligned Mayor of Knotsville has been caught on camera smoking what appears to be a banned substance. The original footage, taken by Somalian fashionistas, was eventually eaten by Ford in what was described as an "unruly display of hunger".
Knotsville reporter and professional pyrographer, Chris Burns, was in the room when the incident took place:
"We were all hanging out on a typical Tuesday afternoon, smoking crack with our Somalian wardrobe specialists and BOOM... Knotrob jumps out of his chair, starts feverishly waving his hands around in the air and makes a bee-line towards Farxaan screaming, I'M GOING TO EAT YOUR PHOOONNNEEEE!!!!!"
Burns went on to say that although he felt threatened by the incident, he knew right then and there that he had to let the people of Knotsville know the truth about the man they once adored.
So he started doing what he does best - woodburning his rendition of the fateful scene for all the world to see.
Now YOU can own this piece of Knotsville history! For a limited time, the original burning will be on sale at the artists own website for $200 until Saturday, May 25, 2013. This includes free shipping to anywhere in Canada or the USA.
**NOTE from the artist**
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has also been accused of smoking crack, and there is currently a crowdfunding campaign to pay for the release of the video. If this woodburning sells before the May 25th deadline, $100 of this purchase will be donated to the Rob Ford Crackstarter / Indiegogo campaign on your behalf (if you choose).
The 'Knoteye' series feature characters that are brought to life using the artist's imagination, and the natural defects in a given piece of wood.
