Billy Connolly | Born On A Rainy Day | 2021

Bring some humour into your home with the newest release from Billy Connolly. The award-winning comedian has included a stellar line-up of hilarious anecdotes in the latest instalment of his Born On A Rainy Day series. From Glaswegian slang to his admiration of Bob Dylan and even a zebra crossing the road, no topic is off limits in the seventh release from his sell-out fine art collection, which features more colour than ever before.

The six new limited edition giclées, each hand-signed by Billy, are are printed on an opulent watercolour paper, highlighting his distinctive bold lines and contemporary style.

Speaking on his relaxed approach to creating art, Billy told us: "People think I paint or draw things on purpose. I don’t, I just draw. So I don’t know quite what it’s about, but I’m enjoying doing it.”

Colour with an attitude

We caught up with Billy at his home in Key West, Florida, for our behind-the-scenes YouTube video. He let us in on how adding colour transformed his monochromatic sketches. 

“There’s more colour in the collection than before,” he explains. “I was looking at the drawings and sometimes they were crying out for colour and I didn’t know why. It was a kind of question. So I put it off for ages and then started to dribble a little colour in. It ended up different from the way it started out – it had a totally different attitude to it.”
