Quit an artistic paintjob, this one…although paintjob: apparently it’s a sticker-job! Done for a noble cause (see www.portraitsofhope.org), with good intensions: it’s still a freaking ugly paintjob to look at….even if it is called Art.

Bonnie who took above picture also used the word peacockification for it…veryveryvery appropriate!

And here she is after a partial “de-peacockification” (word stolen from Will this time)

Thanks to Christina (Bowsprite) who tipped me to Tugster, who directed me to Frogma.

And if I’m correct is this how she looked before the whole arty thing started:

Muuuuuuch better this way!

    It was definitely entertaining, but it was terribly, terribly frivolous for a dignified workboat! Sorta like a draft horse dolled up like My Little Pony, y’know?

    Nice project tho.
    Strange that it looked nice on the cabs and even on that airplane, but indeed to frivolous on a tug.

    I like the pony comparison 🙂
    My first tug from Toys-R-Us !
