Oscar Posters, Reinterpreted






Inception by Dan Sherratt

These images are all from Reelizer, which has tons of artist/fan art takes on movie posters (and more Oscar nominees). Found via Cultural Compulsive Disorder, my favorite new find of the weekend.

Endless Last Supper

A commission by artist Tom Fowler featuring Neil Gaiman's The Endless: Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Despair, Desire and Delirium from The Sandman. At the rik of losing whatever little geek cred I have, I'll admit to not having read The Sandman, but it's on my list, honestly. I'm trying to make up for my general lack of comics knowledge. Anyway, it appears that Death is in the Jesus slot (natch) with the Judas role filled by Destruction. Did I get that right, fans?

The Last Breakfast


Sculptor Brian Stuckey's The Last Breakfast finally gives Cap'n Crunch the Christ position after so many portrayals as Judas, a role now filled by Rice Krispies Snap. What is is with breakfast cereal mascots? Their either fighting or wasting their lives together — don't they have any other friends? (Via Cultural Compulsive Disorder)

Morgan Spurlock's Last Supper


Morgan Spurlock's latest documentary titled The Greatest Movie Ever Sold explore the growing world of product placement in television shows and movies, kinda. Of course what caught my eye was a Ron English recreation of the Last Supper on the poster, with Spurlock as Jesus (of course) and Buzz Lightyear as his Judas.

Papa Zissou


Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find Gargamel and destroy him. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome. (Papa Zissou by Kenyon Bajus via Spoke Blog)

Abraham Lincoln: Cage Fighter


Just realized it was Presidents Day in the U.S. Meanwhile here in Canada (well, some parts) it was Family Day. That really tells you most of what you need to know about the differences between Americans and Canadians. So in honour (with a U) of the day, I present you Abraham Lincoln as King of the Cage, by Brandon Bird, who is knocking out high prices by putting anything featuring one of history’s great leaders on sale.

8-Bit Terrarium


"I actually see a lot of similarities between video games and terrariums; they are both closed systems that seek to nurture and sustain an entire world within a small viewing space. And I get equal enjoyment out of interacting and watching both," says Jude Buffum of Game Over IV, a show on the influence of video games on pop culture.

Head North Through Wonderland, Then It's Straight On To Narnia


I had no idea how close Whoville is to Mordor. It's amazing that Sauron didn't destroy the Who's, what with all the noise from their Jingjinglers, Floofloobers, and Blumbloopas. (The Fantasy World Map from Dan Meth)

I Get High With A Little Help From Vermeer



Would you believe in a love at first sight?
Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time.
What do you see when you turn out the light?
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine.
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm I get high with a little help from my friends,
Oh, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends

The Road To Shermer: A Tribute to John Hughes


I've been posting paintings from Gallery 1988's John Hughes tribute show for the past two weeks and last night the show opened and the rest of the paintings have gone online. Here are four more of my favourites.


The title of the show, The Road To Shermer, refers to Shermer, Illinois, a fictitious suburb of Chicago used in several of Hughes films: Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and National Lampoon's Vacation.


Other than the thinning hair, Judd Nelson looks way better in this than he did when he showed up at least year's Oscar tribute to John Hughes.

A Damn Good Cup Of Coffee


It's been 20 years since David Lynch brought Twin Peaks, Agent Cooper and Laura Palmer to TV and there have been very few shows since that could match it's oddity. I'd say the The X-Files and, currently, Fringe.

To celebrate the milestone, a Twin Peaks 20th anniversary art exhibit is opening on February 12 in Los Angeles. I was alerted to the show on Scott Campbell's blog and his piece, Concentrating On The J's is above. The pieces below are from a preview by Hi-Fructose.
