The art of Dave MacDowell

Earlier this evening Virginian artist, David MacDowell got in touch to reveal that he’s behind, Bad Mutha Wizard the Pulp Fiction meets Wizard of Oz print that Slacker Shack blogged about a while ago. He’s also the man behind the Jaws meets Big Lebowski print ‘Abide’ and The Big Lebowski meets Peanuts print ‘Charlie Lebowski’ (but to be fair, we knew that already).

I was chuffed Dave stopped by to say hello and he also provided a link to a site selling some of his prints – Dirty Pilot.

Over on his website Dave (rather delightfully) notes that his work has been described as, “a virtual Disneyland on acid” in some quarters. Check out some examples of his brilliant and eye-popping work below:

Retro Futurism – Michael Jackson in the year 2000 (as predicted in 1985)

Posted in Art, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2012 by dc

I spotted this on the internet today and I haven’t stopped chuckling since:

According to an article published in a 1985 issue of Ebony magazine this is what Michael Jackson would look like in the year 2000.

“Portraits of the Stars: What They May Look Like in the Year 2000” was put together by an artist named Nathan Wright.

Chillingly accurate I’m sure you’ll agree.

From pop culture rumours, to twisted science semi-facts and famous conspiracy theories, we all love a nice urban myth.
