Pictures of the Day: Skeletal Systems of Cartoon Characters & Santa Claus gets outsourced

| |

Blue's News posted two links today:

A funny cartoon strip showing Santa Claus outsourced.

Skeletal Systems is character study of 22 present and past cartoon characters. Animation was the format of choice for children's television in the 1960s, a decade in which children's programming became almost entirely animated. The artist decided to take a select few of these popular characters and render their skeletal systems as I imagine they might resemble if one truly had eye sockets half the size of its head, or fingerless-hands, or feet comprising 60% of its body mass. Each character resides on a translucent, hinged panel. When the panel is lifted the character's skeletal structure is revealed giving each a certain validity and glimpse into its origins. Each panel is hand-drawn with archival ink and covered with an acrylic/acetate transparency.

Worth1000's Detouching 3 (Celebrities) and Superhero Dayjobs 4 Themes (Doctored Images)

| | |

Worth1000 has two different themes of doctored images (some are really good and some are well not good):

  • Detouching 3 -- Removing the retouching from airbrushed celebrities. They all look soooooooo perfect by the time their pics get to the pages of the magazines. They've got lines and wrinkles and blotches and pimples just like the rest of people do. Celebrity photos with warts and all, *without* the imperfections removed. There are 42 doctored photographs and eww!!!!!
  • Superhero Dayjobs 4 -- What superheroes do to bring home the bacon. What jobs would they hold? Come on, they have to pay the rent somehow, what if all the evil, crime and injustice in the world disappeared tomorrow? They've got impressive skill sets-- put 'em to work. Artists take any superhero of comic book and/or TV and movie fame and give them a day job. A day job can be defined as any job that earns money. There are 61 doctored images.
