Give someone a smart phone with a camera and a selfie is inevitable. Why would Disney characters be any different? That is the reasoning behind these selfies of Disney beauties, beasts, and villains. To make it even cooler, each selfie is personalized with phone covers that reflect elements of that character’s movie. Australian artist Amanda Whitelaw is responsible for this bit of self-absorbed artistry.

Shooting Yourself: Self Portraits with Attitude


Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman

The retro super-heroines of Stephen Langmead ooze pinup girl sex appeal all while wearing the original debut costumes for their characters.

The original 1941 Wonder Woman costume (above) looses the lasso which didn’t appear as a WW accessory until several years later.

The Wasp
The Wasp

The Wasp’s 1963 fashion statement includes a pushup bustier that not only matches the shape of her wings but goes with her other cylindrical accoutrements.

Scarlett Witch
Scarlett Witch

Scarlet Witch’s 1964 debut has her the most covered up– very odd for a decade that was famous for letting it all hang out.

Sue Storm/Invisible Girl
Sue Storm/Invisible Girl

The original 1961 Sue Storm Storm is drawn like Marilyn Monroe, making her sexual appeal a hidden super power that would later attract Tony Stark and Namor as well as Reed Richards. (Coincidentally, both MM and SS have genius IQs.)

Crystal

The 1965 ski lodge jumpsuit is a winning look for Crystal.

Bat Woman
Bat Woman

The original 1956 Bat Woman steals everything from the Jane Russell/Jayne Mansield look book.

Miss Fury
Miss Fury

The 1946 Miss Fury was many a purr-fect inspiration for a few leather fetishes.

Pin-Up Girls Become Disney Delights

Posted: September 23, 2014 in Movies

Snow White

A few days back Moviepilot featured Disney Princesses as pin-up models. Now digital artist and deviant art poster KittRen has reversed that trend and made some popular Gil Elvgren pinup girls from the 1930/1940’s into Disney Princesses. The results are pretty much clever and PG-Rated, a slight step down from the original Elvgren PG-13 look. Still, everyone is a classic based on a classic.

Phase One of the Poster Posse’sInterstellar” tribute focused mainly on the wormhole featured in the movie. Phase Two is definitely more grounded concentrating on the launch and Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper, one of the astronauts chosen for the “Interstellar” journey. All of them are pretty stellar. There is not a weak piece in the bunch.

Interstellar: The Official Movie Novelization


Official movie poster

When the members of the Poster Posse decide to do a big movie release they usually phase it in. For Christopher Nolan’s new space travel adventure Interstellar the artists collective has released Phase One of there tribute.

With so little of the actual space travel footage released the artists were free to use their imagination to explore the wormhole that is a central plot point of Interstellar. It is not surprising that all of it homages 2001: A Space Odyssey in some way.

The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Michael Caine (one of Nolan’s go-to actors), Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, and Wes Bentley. It opens everywhere November 7th.

Disney Princess Fan Art often has to tackle the weirdest existential questions. Especially when it comes to combining classic monsters and princess style. How do you make them monstrous but not overly so? Digital artist No Flutter (first name Jennifer) seems to have come up with the creepy but adorable solution in her Cute Monster Princess series. This terrible sextette would definitely be the highlight of any Halloween Bash, Monster Stomp or Dios De Los Muertos fiesta.

Guillaume Morellec<br>"BORN TO FILM"

“BORN TO FILM”

Spoke Art Galllery in San Francisco is holding an exhibition of artists commissioned to explore the works of Stanley Kubrick. The shows runs through September 27th.

Kubrick only made 13 feature length films in his lifetime. Nine of those are represented in the show: Lolita, The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, Eyes Wide Shut, Dr. Strangelove, Full Metal Jacket and an early, little seen Kubrick effort, Killer’s Kiss.

The un-produced and un-filmed epic Napoleon gets a nod, in a piece from Fernando Reza that looks backwards at history while looking forward to the incomplete vision.

Brian Methe’s Stanley Kubrick Moon Landing even pokes fun at the urban legend that Kubrick was responsible for all that great Apollo lunar stomping footage.

Two under represented films get the best work. Veronica’s Fish Killer’s Kiss not only homages Kubrick cinema but Alfred Hitchcock’s oeuvre also. Barry Lydnon gets absolutely two stunning and haunting portraits from Mandy Tsung and Megan Stratman.

The neglect for early Kubrick is rather sad. No Paths of Glory, Spartacus, The Killing or Fear and Desire.

My personal favorites cover the whole crazy Kubrick quilt. Guillaume Morellec’s
Born to Film equates the idea of war as hell and film-making as the same into one shell-shocked portrait of the Master. Christine Hostelter’s Alex Vs Alex plays with the idea of the delinquent Alex from A Clock Work Orange intimidating his passive and future reformed self. Jayde Fish’s Nasty Bits of Ultra-violence layers Picasso’s Guernica and its statement on war onto all of the ultra-violence of existance filtered through the 3D of heightened reality. Johanah O’ Donnell’s I Think We’re Awake Now heightens a portrait of Nicole Kidman into a hard scrabble, existentially weary countenance of sad and harsh reality. Jonathan Wayshaki’s Alex portrait manages to brush in every apt reference from other Kubrick masterpieces.
