Look what I stumbled upon on my walk! A mini library. I’ve only ever seen pictures of these on Tumblr, so this just made my night.

My Friend Jeff (The Jeff Goldblum Painting Song)
A weekly sketch by Cheeky Moon. Music by Matt Cornah (Cobley).

Several years ago, three friends and I pooled our money to purchase the original oil painting of Ian Malcolm: From Chaos.  This loving tribute to Jeff Goldblum was painted by John Larriva for “The JP Show”, brandonbird's people-only Jurassic Park themed exhibition, and has since gone on to modest internet fame.

The original now lives in Australia, where it’s routinely exchanged between owners (often in a public place) in a tradition affectionately known as #TheGoldblumTransfer.

The number of owners has since expanded to five through marriage and will soon reach six through the miracle of childbirth.  There is talk among the soon-to-be parents of taking it into the maternity ward.

All in all, purchasing a lavish oil painting of Jeff Goldblum is a life decision we can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.

More Info
You can follow the further adventures of The Goldblum via this tumblr, via fellow owner rivaldojo, or simply by searching for #TheGoldblumTransfer on your social network of choice.  It also makes regular cameos on our weekly comedy channel, Cheeky Moon Productions.

If you, too, would like a little Goldblum in your life, please support the artist and purchase a high-res print.

I’m always sad when I finish a Chandler novel because it means I have one less Chandler novel left to read.
