The Story Behind Art That Makes You Laugh®

Jeff Leedy, Fine Art Humorist
At every event I do, I present a slideshow of my humorous art tailored to the audience at hand. I show a piece of my art, talk briefly about how & why I did it, then deliver the title. Everyone laughs. And it continues just like that. Everyone has a great time.

How did I become a fine art humorist?
"You have stumbled unwittingly into the strange mind and artistic hand of Jeff Leedy, that's me, and the art of my off center personality.
I create Art That Makes You Laugh®." Jeff Leedy is recognized as one of the top humorous artists in the country. Through outdoor art shows, collectors, numerous gallery accounts and the licensing of his images onto products, he has built a national following. In his book, "Are You Laughing At My Art?", he devotes a full page to why he is funny. It says,

"You see, God gave me this strange set of contact lenses,
and this is how I see life."

One of Leedy's life goals has been to spread laughter in the world. But instead of becoming an elite fine artist, Jeff chose to create scores of affordable prints so that everyone could enjoy his off center humor. With his first print, Leedy introduced his now-famed "Demando Cat" at the premier Sausalito Arts Festival. Cat lovers four-deep screamed,

"I must have that print -- that's my cat!”

"Originally with my art, I thought I was just making you laugh. I was mistaken. What happened was that my art made people happy. You see, when you're laughing, it's really hard to be depressed.

Since 1990, Leedy has self-published over 85 open and limited edition prints, including his best-selling "Counsel Approaching the Bench," a courtroom scene which depicts two shark fins heading toward the judge.

Born in New York at a very early age, Leedy was enrolled by his father at age 12 in the venerable Art Student's League in New York City. After earning his BFA degree last century at Syracuse University School of Fine Art, he was back drawn to New York City spending 15 years in advertising where he was told, "It's the most fun you can have with your clothes on."

He worked with top ad agencies, such as Young & Rubicam, creating TV and print campaigns and picking up a prized Clio and other awards along the way.

Later he relocated and fell in love with Sausalito's waterfront charm. He and Elaine opened their first humor gallery called Art That Makes You Laugh in . For 10 years, it was a destination spot for tens of thousands of tourists and locals.

In time, they opened their second Art That Makes You Laugh on the Mendocino waterfront which mirrored the charm and character of the Sausalito flagship gallery. Time and circumstances changed again in 2012 when Jeff & Elaine relocated to Idaho (Boise), they are settled in and Jeff is pursuing his career as public speaker using his artwork and funny delivery to make audiences laugh.

So have a great browse on my website . When you laugh, keep a Kleenex near you. Protect your monitor.

Are you laughing at my art?
Well good.
You look like you could use a laugh!”
