Star Wars Characters As Real World People

famous people as star wars characters by Michael Leavitt

Had Star Wars taken place on our Earth rather than in a galaxy far, far away, we could imagine several of the characters as being personalities from Earth. Artist Michael Leavitt mashed up Star Wars characters with famous people of earth to create a series of wooden sculptures that seems to be pretty spot on, for the most part. The sculptures are currently on display at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.

Exploding Cars That Never Saw an Explosion

Disintegrating by Fabian Oefner

The photographs show some of the best known cars in the world disintegrating and exploding into their component pieces.

Since it’s time for Santa to shine, the old dude’s taking the glory and scenic route of classical art. American artist Ed Wheeler created a series of humorous self-portraits where the dude dresses up like Santa and places himself in classic art paintings. Called “Santa Classics” the series shows of classical paintings that, according to Wheeler, needed Santa Intervention. What is interesting is that this is no mere photoshop manipulation, but a carful procedure that integrates Santa into the images without making him appear like an invading species.
