Here’s an old internet meme turned art some of ya’ll might enjoy . . .
ghost in a jar
here’s a link to the original ebay auction . . .
. . . and to the artist, Regia Marinho
My snapshot doesn’t do it justice tho . . .
Techno viking. Awesome.
Not only is Techno Viking a hero, but his painting is amazing.
it’s worth noting that the exclamation-prompting NSFW image at the bottom is a close-up, cropped shot of a classic painting â€œLâ€™Origine du mondeâ€ from 1866 by courbet. still shocking – art FTW!
So I’m thinking… Steven Colbert painted a vagina?????
If nothing else, this entry led me to the awesomeness that is Techno Viking. What a hero!
So. . . it used to be said “art imitates life”. . . now what exactly do we call THIS?
Anyway, the groundhog/whistlepig/prairie dog one is quite nice.
I’d buy a painting of Looooooooooooooooooongcat.
Another artist who paints images found from the internet can be found here: http://www.endaism.com
This guy’s paintings look like bad quality low resolution digital photos
yipe, there’s one NSFW painting near the bottom of the page. Heads up.
Interesting link, otherwise.
And I thought it was Dramatic Guinea Pig!
The Dramatic Chipmunk is neither dramatic nor a chipmunk. Discuss…
It’s Drama Prairie Dog.
And Techno Viking would make a nice stocking stuffer if anyone’s feeling generous.
Yo! It’s Dramatic Prairie Dog!
That link desperately needs a NSFW… you’ll be hearing from my lawyers when I get kicked to the curb.
/My fault for Boing Boinging at work, but still…
My wife posted a photo of her painting of the Dramatic Prairie dog to her blog last summer:
Guess I need to be more proactive about pimping the Boing…
I’d like to point out Miltos Manetas as one of the early internet painters.
I also liked his videogames painting.
all of this dates back to 2001/2
he’s always been a visionary
Wait a minute! Where are the REAL memes?
Where’s nutsack squirrel?
Paint huffer dude?
WTF does he think this is?
