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. […]
Do you have trouble making yourself appreciate classic art? Then these photoshopped paintings of modern celebrities are a great way to slowly ease yourself into something more classy. Wether we’ll admit it or not, most of us enjoy a good gossip magazine. So why not convince yourself that classic art is just as entertaining. Flip through […]
I guess the beauty of being a celebrity is that you can wear whatever you want, even if it makes you look like the evil witch from Disney’s Snow White cartoon. The official look for the Met Gala this year was supposed to be punk. But I guess something got lost in comunication because it’s clear these celebrities resemble classic Disney characters.
Photographer Chris Buck is regularly assigned to take celebrity portraits. But he doesn’t just do his job, he also invites these famous peops to play a game of hide-and-seek with the camera while he takes their portraits. That’s the premise for his photo project, Presence, where celebrities like David Lynch, Robert De Niro, Michael Stipe […]
Barring the rather excellent Numb3rs drama series and, er, New Orleans band Mutemath, the Facemath Tumblr is probably the best pop culture use of mathematics we have seen so far. Facemath adds up a bunch of celebs (random objects like facial hair or bunny ears also make an appearance) to emerge with one celeb, the sum of the total. Every math sum here is solved in a way that’s so oddly comprehensible, it’s geeky without alienating the non-geeks.
I fell in love with woodcuts in the 80s, when I attended a German Expressionist show at LA County Museum. My wife gave me a woodcutting set for my birthday and I dove in blindly. I began carving images inspired by classic movies. Each carving takes 40-50 hours. The process forces me to slow down. I guess woodcutting has become my personal yoga.
We can only imagine just how many unfortunate souls land up at this Tumblr blog from googling ‘celebrity pussy’. There’s nothing dirty about this blog, just, well, innocuous, classy pictures of celebrities and cats.
Have you ever wonder how Muhammad Ali’s letterhead would look like? Or perhaps Batman’s? Now you can know this thanks to Letterheady. Dozens of beautiful, unique and famous people’s letterheads all together in one website. A great source of graphic inspiration for letterheads obsessed.
I’ve heard of pet owners looking like their dogs, or of wives looking like their husbands’ mothers. But this is the first time I’ve ever been enlightened enough to know that celebrities can also look like mattresses. All of a sudden, I find myself pitying the likes of Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears, who have been lambasted for being so quick to bed. Clearly, it wasn’t their fault. The uncanny resemblance to a mattress is just too much for a tired man.
