Reminds me of Dorothea Tanning, and a nice version of Odd Nerdrum:

I saw this on f/b a few weeks ago (I think cynnerth put it up?), & it just popped back into my head.

If I do listen to the hit version of this song, it will sound wrong because this:

That art meme on f/b came back to me when I noted to an architect I know that it's funny that I never think "artist" when I hear the word "architect". In payment, he gave me this guy. Crazy stuff, man:
http://pruned.blogspot.com/2005/10/enigmatic-jean-jacques-lequeu.html
In post-Revolution and Napoleon France, Lequeu produced some of the most imaginative landscape and architectural designs, some a masterful combination of the Gothic, the Egyptian, the Greek, the Chinese, and a smattering of hallucinations. However, except for two folies in Rouen, none were ever constructed. He was somewhat of a pornographer as well and at least in his self-portraits, a cross-dresser. As there are too few sources to go by, the screenwriter can easily color his life some more. After all, he did create portraits of nuns bearing their breasts.
Ok: it's just after 8 a.m. and I've posted, like, five six times today already, so I really need to stfu.

My local library puts out an "on this day" notice on facebook:
On this day ~ October 21
1917 - The first American troops saw action in France during World War I. The U.S. Army's First Division was assigned to Allied trenches in the Luneville sector near Nancy, France.
Just a little WWI interaction for the day.

He started after the announcement that Disney was buying Marvel Comics. His explanation is below:
This project started after the announcement of Disney buying Marvel comics and all the the fans started making Pixar / Avengers images. Well I was not terribly happy with the images that they were doing, so I tried to do better. ( Most of what I saw was recoloured images from "The Incredibles" movie screen grabs )

Mainly, this was just another way to better know Photoshop and I used the same rules as when I did those "Star Wars" posters. Just collected a lot of images using Google, cut and pasted them together, and this is what you get. I put them in a format that makes them look like those movie & comic trading cards I use to collect as a kid.

Hope you enjoy.

He went from there to Star Wars, then Star Trek which is how I found out about it from a man I know, named Fred.

On the facebook, I clicked on this ad b/c it amused me, and was more amused when I got into it:
Overwhelmed with art history, and the facts and meanings of famous paintings?

Simplify learning with Masterpiece Cards, 250 art history cards of the best in Western art history. Explains Renaissance paintings to early 60s artwork, with concise art analysis of each. This art history study guide:
  • examines masterpieces from over 200 famous painters;
  • summarizes and analyzes five centuries in the history of painting;
  • reproduces every famous painting on a portable 4" x 6" art history card.
  • It's just so earnest, and is really, really, speaking to some (previously unknown) deep need that people apparently have: to know works of art from 5 centuries; and all for only $81.

    It's like I just walked into another universe where wanting to know the history of art stands firmly in conspicuous consumption. It's like knowing art history is this great, overwhelming need.
