My friend Kelly sent me a link to something called ReplaceFace – a Tumblr feed of military portraits, only the faces of the original Russian generals have been replaced with the heads of celebrities like Sylvester Stallone, Will Smith, and Jack Nicholson. Kelly, knowing my fondness for photoshopped weird things, thought I might want to contact the artist and ask why he/she hasn’t done Neil Diamond yet.
So true Kelly, so true.
Two: This is impressive photoshoping. I can spot a ‘shop job a mile away, and this is effing impressive.
Three: Why is my cat not in this?
So I got bored last night watching Game of Thrones (y’all did you see that crap with the hand on the string? – SNARF MUCH?) and started plotting this out. Lolabelle, dainty as she is, is too thick-necked to fit in one of those Russian military collars so I made her queen instead. Clearly, it suits her.
It’s a little creepy that there is a human hand, but you know, I’m okay with that. It’s a hallmark of her humanity. (Yeah, that’s it.)
Now I’m going to have it printed on canvas and hung in my portrait gallery, then I’m thinking I’ll order a ReplaceFace image for a pillow front; Bob Dylanor Bill Murray? Tough call…
I love the portrait of your cat. Very suiting.
And Bill Murray. Hands down.
Bill Murray. Absolutely.
And you probably could have gotten away with cropping the original right above the hands.
I will have to go with the majority and say Bill Murray too. And I love your cat portrait. I like it with the hands… makes the viewer have to think. 🙂
I’m with you. I like that hands. They are disorienting. In a good way 🙂
you could have given her . . . mittens
AMAZINGGGGGGG!!!! Lola looks divine. And yes I saw the hand on GOT. Was that the grossest thing ever?! What is going to happen between him and Lady Catherine? I think he might try to convert her for the Lanisters. I wish I had read the books now!
Dude, I was wondering the same thing?! Lady Catherine has loyalty issues — like too loyal, but also too quick to cast down her life-long allegiance. She is a better swordsman than Jamie, even with both hands. I hope she ends up on top:) Second to the Dragon queen, she is my favorite!
OMG…I’m talking about dragon queens. Ren Fair, here I come…
She comes with a built in Victorian ruff – perfect! Much beautiful creepiness here, my dear.
O.M.G. that is a riot… i love the hands. its lola’s ideal. she can open tuna cans now.
and 100% bill murray… absolutely.
Check out the book ‘The Elegant Beast’ by Leonard Lubin… wild paintings.
Wow. Great site. I spent HOURS replacing Mona LIsa with a Mona Luci (my grand-daughter) and other portraits for my grand-kids as we were outfitting our own Louvre …. this would have been PERFECT!! You continue to be the fount of all things wonderful. Thank you
This is amazing. Makes all this April snow just a little less soul-crushing.

Omg CANNOT stop laughing! #3 Why is my cat not in this? Amazing. 🙂
wish I could photoshop my dog into one!
husband would frown so hard if I put up a picture of Juno like this… but he’s also kind of oblivious to the stuff around the house. maybe I could see how long it takes him to notice?
Too, too funny!
That Bill Murray pic was actually the first thing I ever pinned lol! Now I want to do this with MY cats & dogs…
