I'm always really torn about photorealistic drawings. On the one hand, I totally have to respect and appreciate the sheer technique required of the artist to generate such a work. But then on the other hand, I sort of wonder if as artwork it's any better than the photo that they certainly referenced from. If you look at the drawing and think "oh, that's an okay photo, I guess" until someone -tells- you it's a drawing, then is it really all that successful at anything except pretending to be a photo?

Those rely too much on the hair of the people they're trying to imitate. You could give ANYONE pink hair, but they chose Britney Spears during a time where she had pink hair. I don't even remember her having pink hair. Ever.

Also, Loofah, I was like "Wow, I didn't peg you for the cliché patriotic eagle flying type", but then I realized that wasn't a strangely-colored head. That's awesome indeed.

It took me like thirty seconds to figure out what was going on in that picture.

That's incredible.

I was wondering why someone would bother to photoshop in a bunch of slightly folded post-it notes into a picture of the ocean.

It's made out of vacuum cleaner parts. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's looked at a vacuum cleaner and thought it sort of looked like a plane.

A mixture of awesome and cute to celebrate a (belated) World Animal Day, which was on October 4th.

Yep, it's a kingfisher. I thought it was a hummingbird at first, which of course led me to marvel at the how a hummingbird had caught the world's tiniest fish.

Yeah, I figured that's what you were getting at. He begs everyone to use his tapir avatar, and no one does. And someone uses some other tapir, and makes him a jealous sack of sack.
