All Models Should Be Decapitated

The Decapitator is an artist in London with an interesting style. He takes photos, flyers, posters, newspapers and the like and paints over them so that the heads of the people are decapitated. Or he’ll create printed versions that he can paste over the original. It’s really cool.

Check out the video below showing how he decapitated the head of a model in an advertisement in The London Paper and then handed out copies of the paper to people on the street. He’s also got a great Flickr profile with more of his work.

What’s my line?

Are you an artist? Are you a writer? Have you had books published? Do you use your hands- like a pencil or typewriter? Are you a performer? Have you appeared on television? Yes. Now, who can I be talking about who does all this and more (with the exception of playing sports)? Salvador Dali, no less.

Take a look at this 9 minute clip from What’s My Line featuring the renowned artist. What an honor to meet Mr. Dali, huh?

Playing Mind Games on Domestic Vacations

Julie Blackmon

If you like odd, awkward and just sort of atypical all together photographs, take a good look at Julie Blackmon‘s work. Maggie Taylor-esque with a modern day twist, Julie takes the context out of Jan Steen household and slaps a photograph right on it.

Growing up in a family of nine and now a mother of three of her own, she really illustrates the chaotic and tiring role of a mother past and present. Julie photographed children crying, laughing, jumping, swimming and giving the meanest of mean faces. Both bodies of work evokes the artistic spirits from Maggie Taylor and Anne Geddes, while still carrying a very unique and interesting look of their own. Enjoy!
