We all love a great vintage ad, but Paris-based art director David Redon has taken it a step further. What he’s done is taken modern day celebs and placed them into clever vintage ads. Stars such as Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Rihanna, and even Beyonce are used in his project. Redon says of his work: […]
Thanks to AnOther magazine, we’re treated to celebs as you’ve never seen them before: pre-teeth straightening, pre-hair stylists and pre-cool. Yes, it’s celebs as teens. There are quite a few fun snaps in this collection, including a somewhat plain-looking Angelina Jolie, a denim-on-denim Christian Bale (we’ll forgive him), a great portrait of teenaged Steve Buscemi, […]
Empire Peaks is a fun series created by Seattle based artist Michael Leavitt, depicting all your favourite celebrities, politicians and dead historical figures as, what else, Star Wars characters.
We don’t even recall how we got here, but these manga-inspired images of celebrities are pretty cool. Who knew, for instance, that Scarlett Johansson could look right at home as a pink-haired manga babe with emerald green doll-like eyes?
Of all the numerous things that have eclipsed the wide, wide world of pop culture in the past year or so, none are quite as curious as Lana Del Rey’s enormous lips. Which makes it fittingly entertaining to look at these priceless photoshopped images of celebrities with their lips Del Rey-ed — to the extent […]
You’ve got to love Italian artist Dito Von Tease. First of all, what a cool name (Dito Von Tease? Dita Von Teese!). Dabbling in what he calls ‘ditology’, he creates finger portraits that are so good, it almost makes us ashamed of the dull lives our thumbs have led to date.
So, selfies, these ubiquitous self-portraits that everyone takes on their cellphones. It’s such a huge phenomenon that The Guardian asked some celebrities to share their take on the selfie. Looking at Tilda Swinton’s selfie, it looks like she may well be an avid Instagramer.
Celebrities have been known to exhibit the worst behavi… we mean, grammar. Seriously, just look at their tweets. So Red Balloon, an English school in Brazil, hit upon the idea of having their 8 to 13-year-old students tweet back at celebrities like Paris Hilton, Rihanna and Justin Bieber, to correct their grammatical errors in their […]
Malaysia-based illustrator Vince Low has a portrait style all his own. His series of celebrity portraits look like elaborate doodles with a remarkable realism to them. You can see the smooth, fluid motion in each stroke, and his drawings almost look effortless.
We are loving this pictorial collection of passports that belong to some ridiculously famous high-flying individuals like Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, David Bowie, Muhammed Ali, Rene Magritte and Marilyn Monroe. Yes, famous folk move in famous circles, but even so, they need this humble piece of paper identification to get around anywhere.
Harry Hargreaves‘ recent photography series revolves around the strange backstage requests made by some of the world’s biggest music names. Just so you know, Marilyn Manson really likes gummy bears, while Prince likes coffee and tea with honey, lemon, sugar, cream, fresh ginger root… plus a physician at hand for vitamin B12 jabs. Then there’s […]
Toronto-based graphic designer and photographer Marc Ghali cleverly mashed up faces of famous personalities from past and present in the most freakily seamless way with his Then & Now project. James Dean somewhat lives on in Brad Pitt, while Princess Diana somewhat lives on in Kate Middleton — it’s like whoever lived in the past […]
Ah yes. It’s summer again and all the children are heading off to have adventures at summer camp. It’s a glorious, old tradition that almost everyone has experienced at some point. Check out these photos of famous icons at summer camp. There’s Bob Dylan at Herzl Camp, Natalie Portman at drama camp, Leonard Cohen at Camp […]
To do a portrait of a person is to dig deep into his or her soul, to understand what they do and why they do it, and then make it visible. When this person is a celebrity, the job is harder because they’ve already gone through many interpretations. Still, you have to find something new. […]
