Meet Joe Black

MOa

Artist Joe Black creates large-scale portraits of various historical and pop culture figures that are more than they initially appear once you view them closer in detail:

Scene in New York

A delivery truck driver accidentally backed into a $300,000 Ferrari in New York City last week to create this unintentional symbolic representation of the income gap in this country.

Oldest Selfie Ever

This portraiture from approximately 1900 may be the oldest known selfie ever taken.

And here’s one taken sometime in October 1914 by the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna.

Congrats to the Red Sox

Nike NYC Logo

Here’s how one can transform “NIKE” into my favorite city “NYC” courtesy of the design shop Triboro.

Carhenge

We’ve all heard about Stonehenge located across the pond, but did you know we have our own more superior 100% ALL AMERICAN version here in the good ol’ U.S. of A? In Alliance, Nebraska (population 8,491) Jim Reinder, as a tribute to his father, built a replica of Stonehenge except instead of stones he used vintage American cars

Carhenge is a replica of England’s Stonehenge located near the city of Alliance, Nebraska on the High Plains. Instead of being built with large standing stones, as is the case with the original Stonehenge,[1] Carhenge is formed from 38 vintage American automobiles.

There is also another one made out of styrofoam in Virginia called…Foamhenge. Clap clap clap.

Master of Animated GIFs

This is the insane home-based workstation that GIF creator extraordinaire Tim Burke, a former professor of communications and speech who lectured on media theory and now Deadspin.com contributor, works from and where he quickly pumps out GIFs of noteworthy highlights (or lowlights) from various games. He spends approximately 100 hours a week here and monitors dozens of games simultaneously. He is able to view and record from 28 sources at once thanks to his 10 monitors which are then split into eight or more mini-screens.

In the understatement of the year Burke explained, “I am not able to do many other things.”

His wife’s response to all this: “I’ve done a lot of personal growth this past year.”

[Insert GIF here of her rolling her eyes.]
