COOL PIX: Anatomy Of An Icon.

As part of a Fine Arts workshop that took on the theme of icons, Swedish artist George Chamoun used computers (But NO morphing techniques) to merge two different celebrities from two different eras into portrait collages. He calls the series Iconatomy.



As part of a Fine Arts workshop that took on the theme of icons, Swedish artist George Chamoun used computers (But NO morphing techniques) to merge two different celebrities from two different eras into portrait collages. He calls the series Iconatomy, (click on that link to see his site), merging the words Icon and Anatomy. He acknowledges that he didn’t pair certain actors or actresses up with each other for any subtle commentary on their bodies of work, and also points out he spent a LOT of time searching for the right photographs. The results are both beautiful and staggering.

Here are three images – check out his side for a couple more!

Cary Grant and George Clooney

Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman


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



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.


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.

The internet never ceases to amaze me.

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:
