Painted ukuleles in the Boing Boing Bazaar


Shelley Rickey (who made a great cigar box ukulele) has a store in the Makers Marker that sells ukulele-related merchandise, including some great hand painted instruments.

This beautiful uke was customized by the wonderful Marc Kolle. Marc is an illustrator often featured in prominent newspapers, magazines and web-media. We are very proud to have him as part of ‘The Jumping Flea Market Team’.

The Latin on the front of the Ukulele says, ‘The Sun Shines For All Of Us’, thus, the Barefoot Angel in Green Pastures and The Poor Devil upon Scorched Earth are both turning towards it. On the back, the musical notes from ‘Keep On The Sunny Side’ form a halo around St. Ukulelus, The Patron Saint of Ukuleles. He has a flask of fine brandy tucked into his belt and at his feet lay his humble pay.

  1. Oh, such pretty little things! The Ravenscrag uke might be my fave, but the St. Ukulelus is a nice, too.

  2. Sol Lucet Onmibus

    Is there supposed to be a pun in the misspelling of ‘omnibus’, because I’m not seeing it.

  3. If I could afford it, the he Alien Cowboy Blacklight Ukulele would be mine.

  4. I really dig the St. Ukulelus one. I wonder if they’ll discount it because of the typo?

  5. Wow, y’all are right. I never noticed that before ‘Omnibus’ is spelled wrong. Yep, it’s either a discount or the artist, (Marc Kolle) is going to have to come up with a clever story about this. : )

    He probably has one too. Look how clever his work is:
