Artist Proves Famous Paintings Are More Beautiful With Bill Murray’s Face

Artist Recreates Famous Paintings with Bill Murray
(iamaguynamededdy.net)

Even if you’re not a fan of comedy, you can just as easily be a huge fan of Bill Murray for being an amazing dude. Murray has been in the spotlight for over four decades – it all started with a three-season run on Saturday Night Live from 1977-1980, and to this day, he hasn’t slowed down. For most, being a public figure for that long would probably deplete your patience for adoring fans, But Bill Murray genuinely seems to love making his fans happy.

Murray sightings are not uncommon, and almost always leave people with hilarious stories. Multiple times, this young-at-heart goofball has been caught stealing fries from fans, at one point screaming “No one will ever believe you” across Times Square. He’s crashed weddings, bachelorette parties, strangers’ birthday festivities, and even applied for a job at P.F. Chang’s simply because he deems it “one of the great places.” One artist named Eddy Torigoe Pellot struck a chord with Bill Murray fans everywhere by finding a fittingly absurd way to honor the lovable goofball – Eddy created works of art by photoshopping Murray’s face into classic paintings.

Though this talented artist didn’t originally set out to create such a perfect series of photos, the internet’s response makes it clear that this is the content people didn’t know they needed. Eddy told The Dad, “It was simply by accident that I made the composites using Bill. I stumbled upon an image of him on Reddit that looked so much like the famous Washington portrait that I couldn’t resist putting them together. And of course, it’s Bill Murray, the man has made the world a better place just by being in it.”

The one that started it all

Eddy didn’t stop after his Washington photo came to fruition – instead, he took classic painting after classic painting and added the beloved actor’s face to each one. One might even say that looking at these pictures one after another gives the viewer somewhat of a “Groundhog Day” vibe. The collection is eclectic, recreating portraits of Frida Kahlo to Grant Wood’s American Gothic. But somehow, every single one works.

Eddy quickly realized just how loved Murray was, with encouragement pouring in from unexpected places. “I was definitely surprised by the response, but what surprised me the most is how many fans Mr. Murray has around the world,” Eddy explained. “It was incredibly overwhelming to receive so many positive comments about him and it’s also humbling to see how far his celebrity reaches. He really is a beloved public figure.”

Though Eddy says he’s done with the Bill Murray collection, fans have requested similar series with other celebrities so there may be more in the future. Until then, enjoy the full Murray Collection on Eddy’s website, and some of our favorites below.

He’s beautiful.

Dad Shares 14-Yr-Old’s Comics and the Internet Loves Them

Dad Shares 14-Year-Old’s Comics and the Internet Loves Them
(Instagram/jakes_door_comics)

It’s a proud moment for parents when kids develop a passion for their hobbies and work hard to improve their skills. Hanging their pictures around the house or sharing poems with family and friends is a great way to encourage and support them, but it’s not often that thousands of strangers also take an active role in cheering on a kid’s creativity. When 14-year-old Jake started drawing impressive and hysterical comics on the whiteboard on his bedroom door every night, Jake’s dad David thought that others might enjoy them too. David began sharing Jake’s comics online, and anyone who has ever thrown content into the abyss that is the internet knows it’s not easy to win over the self-proclaimed content connoisseurs – but Jake’s comics clearly struck a chord.

With nearly 15,000 Instagram followers and counting, Jake’s comics are a hit. The 14-year-old initially used his whiteboard to share a “word of the day” with his family, but soon grew tired of searching for interesting vocabulary. Jake’s whiteboard soon became a place for doodles and comics, which caught his dad’s attention. These comics were not the scribbles and questionable jokes one might expect from a teen – they were delightfully funny, impressively drawn, and highly entertaining.

Jake told Bored Panda about the origins of his Instagram page. He recalled, “My dad took pictures of them, and once we got around 50, my dad asked for permission to put them on an Instagram page. I was reluctant at first, but I gave my dad the green light to put the comics up. The page got 10,000 followers in two days, and I drew comics on the whiteboard more frequently. And that’s how it all began!”

The comics are entirely products of Jake’s active imagination, and while the drawing process is quick, the ideas themselves take time to develop. Jake explains, “I’ll have an idea for a comic, think, ‘Hey that’s actually a good idea,’ and write it down on a sticky note for future use.”

Jake’s dad has posted over 150 of his comics so far, and his daily drawings are added frequently. Check out Jake’s Instagram for his full catalog of work, and enjoy some of our favorites below!

Teen Helps Little Brother Travel the World Through Chalk Art

Teen Helps Little Brother Travel the World Through Chalk Art
(YouTube/WGN News Instagram/macairesmuse)

Being in the middle of what seems like year six of quarantine has left many kids grasping at straws when it comes to entertainment. Most camps, sports, and pools, have been closed indefinitely. With many parents still having to work from home, kids have had to become more self-sufficient at staying occupied for a lot of the day. Two kids in Illinois found themselves in this exact situation when their parents explained that due to their work schedules, the kids would have to keep themselves busy once they finished their classes for the day.

Unlike most teenagers who would have spent their spare time locked in their rooms making TikTok videos, Fourteen-year-old Macaire Everett took it upon herself to keep her 9-year-old brother Camden entertained while her parents worked in their provisional home office. Years ago Macaire dabbled in chalk art, and she decided that this was a better time than ever to design some new masterpieces. This time though, she had an extra spark of inspiration in the form of her eager little brother.

Not only was Camden supportive of his sister’s chalk art, but he was also the key motivation behind his sister’s incredible creations. Macaire told Today, “We have never traveled outside the United States. Cam really wants to travel, so he likes going places in the chalk. I’m giving him a little preview.”

Macaire has been taking Camden on the trip of a lifetime, right from the safety of their own driveway.

He’s traveled through the Sahara Desert,

You Can Own This Ridiculously Cool AT-AT Barbecue

AT-AT Grill
(Burned by Design)

Pardon us for saying so by your grill is lame. Oh, you’ve got the Blazemaster 8000 Titanium Ultra Plus? That’s cool, is it an AT-AT? Because from now until forever if your grill isn’t an AT-AT then your grill is lame. That’s the stake Alex Dodson has thrown in the ground when he welded (with fire and his hands) a near pitch-perfect replication of an AT-AT only it’s a goddam grill.

AT-ATBBQ 5
Yes. That’s fire surrounding it. Badass. (Burned by Design)

Alex runs Burned by Design, a euphoria for folks who like grills to be shaped like things that aren’t grills. According to his site, the approximate size of this particular grill is L47 x W20 x H39 and is “handcrafted in mild steel using 4mm precision cut laser profiles to capture that movie detailing.” It’ll run you a cool $1,712.22 which really isn’t that bad considering it’s a grill that looks like an AT-AT! From Star Wars! It gives you full permission (it doesn’t really) to yell “Burgers will be ready at-at 2:00!” Or “Who wants some Hoth Dogs???” Those 2 lines are worth the price alone. Check out this in-depth video Sr Dodson posted to Facebook in which he gives us every possible angle we could ever hope for. He’s also included a cut in there to show off his sick editing skillz:

Fan Artist Creates Baby Jar Jar Binks and All Is Forgiven

Baby Jar Jar Fan Art
(Disney)

Fandom is what makes a movie into something different. It’s more than a few hours of escape in a theater. It’s what turns a regular day in early May into a somewhat annoying day for amateurs to proclaim their love when you’ve been living the life for years. And one true marker of fandom is fan art.

Leonardo Viti has taken fan art into another dimension. He specializes in 3D character development and most recently made the loathsome gangster Jabba The Hutt pretty adorable as an infant. His latest masterpiece shows an even more reviled Star Wars character in a new light. You don’t have to be much of a Star Wars fan to know everyone hated Jar Jar Binks, the low-point of the much-maligned Phantom Menace. The middle trilogy had its many flaws, but even its devil’s advocates wouldn’t defend Jar Jar Binks.

But c’mon, he would be cute as a baby, right?


Taking an existing character and reimagining it as a baby is always a surefire success. “The Mandalorian” developed the template with The Child, the proper name for Baby Yoda.

And, by George, he’s done it again. It’s hard to look at Baby Jar Jar with the same venom many hold for his character. It’s simple to imagine the little guy without the weird walk, ludicrous accent, and questionable politics. We might even be able to accept Baby Jar Jar if he was voiced by Morgan Freeman.

It would’ve been hard to imagine any version of Jar Jar Binks that wouldn’t immediately elicit a sigh, but dangit, you can’t stay mad at a baby Jar Jar. It’s not his fault he’s going to grow up to leave a mark on one of the greatest space operas of all time. It’s not his fault George Lucas molded his destiny to become Space Goofy.

If anything could salvage Jar Jar, it’s the baby treatment that turned The Child into Disney’s biggest breakout merchandising hit of the year. At the very least, you have to admit he does look adorable.

Woman Pranks Parents by Slowly Replacing Photos With Crayon-Drawings

Family Photos Become Crayon Drawings
(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

After countless weeks of quarantine, chances are you’ve grown weary of your living quarters, and are actively seeking ways to break free from its monotony. Sure, you could paint an accent wall, shuffle some furniture, put a succulent on the window sill. You could even stick your dad’s belongings to the ceiling to see how long it will take him to notice. The living room is your oyster.

Or, in the case of graphic designer Kristen Vogler, you could sneakily replace all the family photos with terrible crayon drawings.

“Sneaking these masterpieces up was not easy,” Kristen wrote in a Facebook post. “I had to hide in the bathroom clutching the frames multiple times.”

Sure enough, over the course of 12 days, she swapped them out one by one. Her commitment to the bit is impressive, to say the least.

“The beginning, just a normal photo wall of memories.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 1. The first crayon drawing is placed, bets were made on how many photos and how long it would take them to notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 2. After FaceTiming with my grandparents (the subjects of my first crayon replica) for an hour near this wall, I decided to add another piece while my parents took a walk.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 3. Up to three crayon artworks now and still not even a glance. That door on the left? It’s used multiple times a day.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 4. Thought I would get caught today. I had been posting on Twitter about my progress and my mom chose today to try to start a twitter account to talk to John Krasinski about Some Good News but luckily her account was locked.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 5. At this point it was getting harder to pick photos I thought weren’t noticeable plus I felt like I smelled like crayons constantly.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 6. After getting a ton of rain for days I was needing to get sneakier to be able to add these to the wall. I think today I convinced my mom to go for a run before it rained haha.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 7. Today was a twofer with these classic Christmas photos. At this point I was starting to think I should have guessed based on weeks and not days for how long it would take them to notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 8. I legit did not think I would get this far, but here we are.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 9. Only three left to go before my work is complete. I should probably take a moment to apologize to my art teachers. You tried really hard to teach me to draw people, and this is what I’ve done.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 10. Happy Easter. My mom was nice enough to hide Easter eggs for me, in return I did this to the photo of her first born.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

“Day 11. I almost got caught hanging this one up. Had to hide in the bathroom but they still didn’t notice.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

Kristen’s mom and dad caught on to her shenanigans by day 11, unfortunately. But thankfully she caught the moment on video.

“Day 11 – 7 hours later. I heard the initial “wait… what” and went running over in time to capture this moment. I like to think they noticed because I replaced my senior photo and of course they look at the picture of their favorite daughter the most right?”

She was too deep to give up now. On day 12, she finished the job.

“Day 12. I needed closure, Kerri wanted to be included.”

(Facebook / Kristen Vogler)

Pranks don’t get much more wholesome than this. Bravo.

We applaud Kristen for the strides she’s made in interior decorating, and wish her and her crayon family the best in health and sanity.

Mom Makes Most of Quarantine With Incredible Sidewalk Chalk Art

(Instagram/caseydrakemakes)

We’re all doing the best to cope with this unprecedented spell of boredom in our own little ways. Some people are making shot-by-shot recreations of terrible 80s music videos, while others have crafted a parody trailer for The Mandalorian.

But Casey Drake, an immensely talented mom from Orlando, Florida, is reframing the situation as an opportunity to make art that spreads cheer to the world outside. Her canvass? The sidewalk.

Here she is hard at work on a rendition of C3-PO and R2D2.

Some serve as helpful reminders. This Dorothy, for example.

(Instagram/caseydrakemakes)

Also, this Batman.

(Instagram / caseydrakemakes)

She depicts classic Disney characters living their best lives.

A major theme is toilet paper, so naturally, we get Doc Brown delivering his iconic catchphrase from Back to the Future.

(Instagram / caseydrakemakes)

Our personal favorite is this hilariously slanderous depiction of Joe Exotic from Netflix’s true crime miniseries, Tiger King.

(Instagram / caseydrakemakes)

Currently, she’s working her way through the 5 Stages of Quarantine, as portrayed by characters from Pixar’s Inside Out.

We’re truly stoked to see what immaculate sidewalk art Casey comes up with next. Make sure to follow her at caseydrakemakes on Instagram!

These Bootleg Movie Posters are Way Better Than the Licensed Ones

(Twitter / Retr0Joe)

As important as they may be, movie posters are generally pretty boring. Typically just some headshots of cast members or a cooky visual joke to make them memorable, the advertisements rarely convey much about a film itself.

Interestingly, starting back in the 70s, some not-quite-legal theaters in Africa (specifically, Ghana) preferred to avoid the licensing costs for these movies by showing bootleg versions and, as a result, had to hire local artists to help advertise what’s playing.

Twitter user ‘Retr0Joe’ described the artful practice in a tweet, followed by some of his favorite examples:

“Some artists had no reference to what movie they [were] drawing,” he wrote, “so some just guessed…”

The result is usually something colorful, grotesque, or completely absurd (and often all three).

While initially singular in purpose, the unforgettable works of art from underground movie clubs have begun to attract worldwide attention for their bizarre uniqueness (and hilarious inaccuracies).

“They’re not just film posters – they’re 2m-high, one-off, original oil paintings,” says Karun Thakar, collector and curator behind African Gaze, an exhibition showcasing film posters from Ghana.

But if you want to own one of these massive, often surreal posters for yourself, you’ll have to beat other collectors to them.

Currently, an authentic Ghanaian movie poster can fetch several hundreds of dollars on eBay, but where else are you going to find a poster for 1999’s crime drama “Ghost Dogs” featuring Forest Whitaker fighting a literal group of weaponized ethereal dogs with a samurai sword?

Move Over Baby Yoda, Baby Jabba Is Here

Baby Jabba The Hutt
(Instagram/leovitiart)

Baby Yoda is a pop culture phenom. The breakout star of “The Mandalorian” on Disney+ has played a huge role in making fans excited about the future of Star Wars. Baby Yoda has been a Christmas cookie, a cocktail, and has fans eagerly awaiting his appearance at Build-A-Bear.

Disney CEO and Chairman even tried to claim Baby Yoda as a Green Bay Packers fan, which didn’t exactly play out the way he hoped when the Packers were absolutely throttled (Force-choked?) by the San Francisco 49ers.

Honestly, we’re probably hitting peak Baby Yoda, before the internet tide starts to turn against the overexposure of the little guy. But can there be a cuter baby Star Wars character than Baby Yoda?

(This is an obligatory aside for all the nerds that want to yell “He’s not really Yoda!”. Yes, that is canonically correct, he is simply referred to as “The Child” on the show, but let’s not kid ourselves, everyone knows who we’re talking about when we say Baby Yoda).

One Star Wars fan says yes, and even produced a 3D rendering to prove it. And in his mind, he’s come up with an even cuter miniature Star Wars figure: Baby Jabba.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

The little Jabba is really happy for all the love he received 🙏 Here is a short turntable video 😊

A post shared by Leonardo Viti (@leovitiart) on

You can check out the full project on his ArtStation page.

Jabba the Hut became most famous for his turn as a leading figure in the criminal underworld of Star Wars in “Return of The Jedi”, but Lucas eventually plugged him into the newer version of “A New Hope” as well. He’s an evil figure who eventually imprisons most of the cast, before a daring escape engineered by Luke Skywalker (sorry for the 40-year-old spoiler!).

Before people freak out, this is just a fan rendition, and there are no known plans for a Baby Jabba in the show. I’m not saying people wouldn’t sign up for a full-fledged Baby Star Wars, but that’s not what this is.

Still, I’ll admit, the fan did a stellar job of making a Baby Jabba pretty adorable. So what if his species doesn’t have quite the nobility of the Yodas (yes, I know that’s not their species name), and if he’s probably the offspring of some sort of villainous gangster, he’s still pretty cute! Chunky babies are always the cutest, and nothing in the Star Wars world is gonna be chunkier than a Hutt.

Artistic Husband and Wife Illustrate Life as New Parents

(jude_devir)

Welcoming your first child into your life is a wonderful, difficult, and absolutely life-altering experience, and in the days of social media, few parents have to be reminded to document their growing baby day-by-day. Instead of photos, though, one couple has been recording their wide array of new experiences with gorgeous and highly relatable comics.

Yehuda and Maya Devir, the artists behind the popular “One of Those Days” series, finally welcomed their first child into their life in April 2019 after facing difficulties in getting pregnant (which they also documented). Little Ariel, who Yehuda call Yehuda called his daughter “the most hilarious and adorable creature [he’s] ever seen,” is clearly having a massive impact on their lives (no surprise).

(jude_devir)

“She is a very easygoing girl and happy all the time,” he told HuffPost. “She certainly sets a high standard for her siblings to follow.”

Despite their overwhelming love for their daughter, the Tel Aviv-based couple definitely recognizes the difficulties a new child brings and the shifting dynamic of their relationship as a result.

(jude_devir)

“Of course, there is less time to be with each other alone, and our attention needs to be shared between three people now, while also running a business,” Yehuda continued. “It is very complex, but we are still getting used to the changes.”

A post shared by YEHUDA DeVIR OFFICIAL (@jude_devir) on

In an Instagram post back in August, Yehuda posted a comic titled “It’s OK” where he revealed some of the emotional hardships and concerns that accompany fatherhood:

It’s okay when she cries in your hands
It’s okay that she only wants her mom
It’s okay that you can’t put her to sleep
It’s okay that you still don’t understand your status
It’s okay that you don’t have that connection, that everybody is talking about
It’s okay that you still don’t understand your job definition
It’s okay that you don’t make her laugh
It’s okay that you’re tired
It’s okay that you’re angry
It’s okay that things don’t work out for you
It’s okay to ask for a hug
It’s okay to share your partner with everything you go through, even if it doesn’t seem so manly
It’s okay that your life has changed
It’s okay that your plans have been canceled
It’s okay that you have no time for anything
It’s okay to feel weak
It’s okay to be moody
It’s okay to feel lonely
It’s okay to ask for help
It’s OK…

Fortunately, while Ariel is definitely the main focus of their attention, she also provides tons of creative inspiration for their art.

(jude_devir)

“Our comics are based on our real life, so she’s certainly added quite a bit of interest,” Yehuda said. “We just have to extend the day by a few hours so we have time to be with her as well as create.”

Free Baby Yoda Coloring Book

Baby Yoda has effectively taken over the world with his big adorable eyes, tri-fingered hands, and uncontrolled force powers, so it’s a bit surprising that Disney has yet to release any official merch featuring the little green fella.

Thankfully, artists around the world are filling that void with their own BaYo creations and some of them are pretty damn great.

One that we found particularly adorable was a coloring book called “This is the Way,” illustrated by Martin Gee at the request of Vulture. Inspired by some of his most popular scenes in The Mandalorian, this Baby Yoda is ready to be colored and brought to life in all of his cartoonish glory. Plus, it’s free!

(Vulture / Martin Gee)

You can find him doing all of the most iconic Baby Yoda activities, like harnessing the power of the Force:

Awesome Baby Yoda Street Art Is Popping up All Over the World

The cult status of The Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda is nothing to take lightly. Hell, the little guy is out-trending actual presidential candidates so it’s really no surprise that he’s being represented in street art across the globe.

From France to the United States to Australia, everyone’s favorite green force-user is showing up to brighten people’s day in the most unlikely of places.

Sock Grafitti, for example, created this incredible mural in France, showcasing incredible detail in Baby Yoda’s adorably giant eyes.

Even businesses are getting in on the hype. Hotel Madrid in Milwaukee features a head-to-toe shot of a grinning BaYo front and center underneath their sign.

The hotel commissioned for him to be added leading up to their Gremlins holiday takeover, an event where they thought the little green fella would fit in nicely.

Another domestic work of art, this time in Charlotte, NC, highlights a big, bright, and colorful Baby Yoda surrounded by purple energy and popping off a yellow background.

He’s even been spotted in Melbourne, Australia, expressing his love for chicken nuggets (clearly, not a quote from the show, but a statement we can get behind, nonetheless).

The artist, who goes by the name lushsux, received so much positive feedback from the piece that he’s since thrown up a couple of other Baby Yoda pieces, too – the first, highlighting Sir Elton John and the beloved soup-sipping version of the little green alien:

And the most recent featuring Keanu Reeves, begging the question: Is it possible to love two creatures this much?

Even with the first season of The Mandalorian slowly approaching its finale, it doesn’t look like Baby Yoda hype is going to die off anytime soon, and now he’s being immortalized even further with these amazing art pieces.

Are you caught up on all of Baby Yoda’s adorable shenanigans on The Mandalorian? Check out our recaps of the most recent episodes here.

Family photos are notorious for being cheesy, poorly staged, and just bad overall. Fortunately, a special grandmother-grandson duo is redefining the game and kicking out some unforgettable family pics to their now millions of fans.

Ross Smith, 27, and his 93-year-old grandma, Pauline “Granny” Kana, began posting short videos on Vine over 6 years ago. One particular vid featured Ross getting savagely blocked by Granny while playing basketball, which went subsequently went insanely viral and launched the duo into internet stardom.

Even with the decline of Vine, the duo has continued making videos and doing hilarious photoshoots, which has earned them an astounding 2.7 million followers on Instagram and 900k subscribers on YouTube.

We’ve compiled a number of our favorite parody costume shoots from Ross and Granny for your viewing pleasure. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

Clearly, family holidays are even more special for this pair who plan something costumed and ridiculous for nearly every single one of them. It’s also hard to tell who’s enjoying it more.

In addition to posting amazing photographic content like this, Ross and Granny also film comedy sketches, mini-documentaries, Granny’s words of wisdom, and sometimes just typical updates to let us know Granny hasn’t kicked it yet.

Sometimes, they’ll even visit conventions to heckle folks walking around. Check out Granny’s shenanigans at this bodybuilding event:
