I am in favor of Kraken Jamming

Want an awesome painting like this? It's a two step process:

Step 1: Find generic '80s oil painting at thrift store

Step 2: Paint a badass Kraken in it

Dana's Painting and Portraits (Thanks, Gromitorium!)


  1. Artist John Lytle Wilson has been doing these for years – he calls them “corrected paintings” and you can see them here: http://johnlytlewilson.com/correctedpaintings

  2. awesome! a while ago I stayed in an (otherwise unremarkable) hotel in Reading, UK and they had a similar thing going, except the generic paintings (mostly ships/coastal landscapes) were augmented with a variety of UFO’s

  3. The reminds me of the comic “Motel Art Improvement Service” by Jason Little.  Unfortunately the excerpt that’s available online now doesn’t have any images of the improved art.  My favorite was a pink whale sensually rubbing against a square-rigged sailing ship.
