If the women of Disney all got together for a costume party, what other characters would they go as?

Artist Isaiah Stephens has some ideas. Needless to say, it makes for a wonderfully confusing interplay of various fictional universes…

How to make tree bark haunt your dreams using only a mirror

Sep 29, 2014 By Abraham 0

Trees aren’t scary, right? Wrong.

It turns out that they are full of terrifying ghouls and goblins…if you hold mirrors up to them in the right spots. And photographer Elido Turco is an expert in finding where on a tree these hair-raisingly awesome faces will emerge.

For a series entitled “Dream Creatures,” he photographed trees during his walks in the woods, and then mirrored the photos on his computer bringing the trees to life — fascinatingly frightening life.

Here is just a selection from the series…

The world has seen many great artists, but no artist it seems has done what it takes to finally perfect their masterpiece. There’s always something missing.

And it turns out, that something, is Rowan Atkinson’s hilarious mug.

But now, thanks to illustrator Rodney Pike, we can see what various classic paintings would look like if the artist had given their subjects the correct face…

These drawings are typewritten, not drawn. But the amazing thing is the artist himself…

If you want to see incredible skill and dedication despite severe physical limitations, look no further than artis Paul Smith.

As a child he was diagnosed with severe spastic cerebral palsy — but that never kept him from pursuing his love of art. Although Paul’s condition made him unable to hold a paintbrush or pen, or even speak and eat, he became a phenomenon in the art world.

How? By creating beautiful images…with a typewriter.

Paul used both hands to create his art—the left to steady the right, which pressed the keys. And since he wasn’t able to press two at once, he locked the shift key down and created his art using only 10 characters…

Graffiti artists replace their destroyed work with photos of the people who destroyed it

Sep 26, 2014 By Joey White 1

When street artist DS put several paste-ups on a wall in London last year, it didn’t take long for someone to remove his work. However, the artist managed to get a photo of the person removing his work and returned with new graffiti portraying the removal guy. A hilarious piece of trolling…

As artFido pointed out, a similar stunt was performed a few years ago by another artist.

It started with him putting up a poster…

Sep 23, 2014 By Joey White 2

In an effort to honor the great photographers who’ve inspired him, noted photographer Sandro Miller enlisted John Malkovich to reenact famous portraits. At first glance, it looks as though Malkovich’s face is simply Photoshopped into the original portraits, but in fact each picture is a complete reproduction of the original.

The series “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters” offers a stunningly detailed, humorous twist on some of your favorite classic photographs…

These 1940’s cartoonists drew their characters blindfolded. Dick Tracy is almost perfect…

Sep 22, 2014 By Abraham 0

In a 1947 experiment as silly as it was fascinating, the Chicago Tribune asked several cartoonists to draw one of their classic characters…and then wear a blindfold or close their eyes and draw the character again. It’s clear they’re all incredibly familiar with their subjects, but especially impressive is Chester Gould with his near-perfect blind replication of Dick Tracy.

When the paper published the results they rounded out the article with a bit of surprisingly critical commentary in the captions…

Artist’s depicts a woman’s entire life by continuously updating a single image of her face

Sep 21, 2014 By Megan Berman 1

South Korean illustrator Seok Jeong Hyeon skillfully captures a woman’s aging process from babyhood to old age, in a single digital “live” drawing. He draws a baby girl and then edits the drawing to represent her different stages of life until she is a vibrant old woman…

Watch her grow from a baby to a little girl, then lose her chubbiness and become a young lady. As she becomes an adult, she loses her innocent gaze, and her eyes seem more knowing.

Hyeon deftly changes the woman’s appearance, using a light touch to age her with subtle changes to her hair and skin and eyes…until you see the final image. Truly incredible work!
