U r genius hidden, Conceptual use of source with dramatic representation of what is happening.. I like it. There placement with quality and smooth finishing is very cool, nice work with putting hats suits very much to every one. And it surreal
Every morning I wake-up to a thousand Blackbirds crapping & squawking near my residence. I want to light-up the tree, they roost in, like we (my fellow Vets)did at Pleiku ABRVN on one cool July 4th evening. A full arsenal of heavy & light weapons and a lone tree as the target. Your chop just gouged a Flashback from my previous, collective-events memory. Clean & simple; nice work.

This Thursday the artistic world will celebrate the 172nd birthday of Claude Monet - the founder of Impressionist movement in art. The term "impressionism" is inherited from the title of Monet's painting "Impression, Sunrise".
Photoshop any painting by Claude Monet to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Monet paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days.
October 31 marked not just another Halloween, but also the 381st birthday of Jan Vermeer - one of the greatest artists of the Dutch Golden Age - the author of "Girl with a Pearl Earring", "Milkmaid", "A Lady Writing a Letter", "The Astronomer", and numerous paintings of domestic ordinary life.
Sadly, great fame came to Vermeer's paintings long after his death.
Show how works by Jan Vermeer would look if he created them these days. Show his modernized work created simply for art (celebrity portraits, etc.), or for commercial purposes (advertising, political campaigns, etc.). These are just some ideas.
This Tuesday is the 85th birthday of the "father of pop-art" Andy Warhol. Andrew Warhola (his real name) was an American with Slovak roots and worked as advertisement illustrator for Vogue and other magazines, before becoming famous. Andy coined the phrase "15 minutes of fame", but there's a rumor that he was dyslexic and he really meant 51 minutes :)
To celebrate the 85th birthday of Andy Warhol, take any photo or art work (painting, sketch, illustration), and turn it into Warhol-like pop art. Alternatively, blend any art work with Warhol's art.
This Friday is the 179th birthday of one of the most famous French artists - Edgar Degas. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, even though he more preferred to be called a realist.
Degas started painting seriously very early in his life. Obsessed with painting, he turned his room into an artist studio by the age of 18. His father - a wealthy French banker - was originally against Edgar's love for art and wanted him to become a lawyer instead. At the age of 21, Degas dropped out of Law school and went to Italy for three years where he copied the works of Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. Degas talent flourished under the guidance of his first teacher
Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, whose first advice to Edgar was "draw lines, young man, many lines..."
To celebrate the 179th birthday of Edgar Degas, show how his paintings would be different if he created them nowadays - e.g. including modern elements in his works, making them promote and endorse products and services, including celebrities and politicians in his art, hiring Degas to do movie posters, etc.
