If the little taste of THE AVENGERS after CAPTAIN AMERICA wasn’t enough for your appetite, we have another little gem to bring you this Monday morning.

At Comic Con this weekend, Marvel released an advance character poster for each Avenger.  Together, they formed one huge poster. Marvel released a statement:

“As the Co-Visual Development Supervisors for Marvel Studios, Ryan Meinerding and Charlie Wen help to bring your favorite heroes from the printed page onto the silver screen. Working with the producers and filmmakers, Meinerding and Wen have developed the big screen looks of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and more, ensuring that when the iconic characters make the leap into your local theater, they do so in style.”

Take a look below at all seven posters, and how they come together to create one awesome image to lead up to next Summer’s superhero blowout!

A Botched Painting Restoration Has Gone Viral But The Internet Reactions Are The True Masterpieces

Published

on

A restoration so botched not even Drs. Terry Dubrow and  Paul Nastiff could save it.

Art is interpretive…which is why it is so impressive that everyone has unanimously interpreted the restoration of “The Immaculate Conception” as being just awful.

An art collector in Valencia, Spain paid €1,200 to a furniture restorer to have his copy of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo’s famous painting cleaned. Something went wrong with the cleaning and the painting left the Virgin Mary’s face unrecognizable. As if poor Mary hadn’t already suffered enough, the two attempts to restore the painting left the masterpiece looking like something found at a second grade art fair.

Images of the botched restorations traveled faster than a rampaging bull in Pamplona which led the Royal Academy of Arts to post this tweet:

And obviously the responses have been hilarious.

A shocking take.

Good art is hard to lego of.

Eye-popping.

Self restoration is key.

And this troll.

And this painfully accurate observation.

The incident has sparked a further discussion about the importance of restoration with some believing laws should be put into place to protect these valuable works of art. I totally agree but until then let’s just enjoy the inevitable, valuable memes that will come from this.

I Don’t Know Why But You Need To See This Portrait Of Dan Levy Sitting On A Sandwich

Published

on

These artist renderings are truly the best things since sliced bread.

The internet never ceases to amaze me. Just when you think you’ve seen all that there is to see on the world wide web, you stumble across an Instagram artist who dedicated an entire series of work to celebrities on sandwiches. The appropriately named user @CelebsOnSandwiches features watercolor renderings of popular celebrities sitting on delicious looking sandwiches.Why you might ask? I literally have no idea! But who cares, because most recently the account shared a delicious looking Dan Levy sitting on a popular piece of avocado toast…and if you think I mixed up those adjectives, I most certainly did not. Of course the whimsical artwork caught the eye of the Schitt’s Creek star and so he posted this today:

Thanks for depicting me in my natural habitat, @celebsonsandwiches. I feel seen.

The foodie fun doesn’t stop there though, the account is filled with dozens of sandwiches and celebrities ranging from the super popular to the super bizarre. Either way, there is no denying the expert level of artistry portrayed.

All hail the king.

Those buns can’t be real…

This one is out of this world.

Wow this one comes with extra meme.

Lastly, this troubling sign of the times.

They all look good enough to eat…well except maybe the Purell one…contrary to what our president may think. If you’d like to get your hands on one of these renderings you’re in luck because the account is currently running a 20% off promotion. Click here for more information.
