Pop Art Portraits
Commonly called 'WPAP' (Wedha's Pop Art Portrait), this style was made popular by Indonesian artist Wedha Abdul Rasyid. It's easily recognizable by its sharp lines and wild colors, and is heavily inspired by the cubist style of art.
Smokey and the Bandit
One of the greatest Southern documentaries ever made, Smokey and the Bandit is the story of man’s desire to deliver cheap beer really fast. Truly one of the greatest chase movies ever made — watched it recently and it still holds up. Starring the late Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, Jackie Gleason (as the tenacious Sheriff Buford T. Justice), and one of the most recognizable cars ever to grace the silver screen; the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
Fellowship of the Minds
An homage to these three geniuses from history. Even to this day they continue to inspire and shape our dreams and ambitions.
This idea came about after brainstorming some unlikely super heroes — what would it be like if famous figures throughout history gathered together into a trio of awesomeness, perhaps to fight Thomas Edison across the circuits of time. I may or may not have been watching Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure...
Celebrating historical figures who freed the minds and bodies of future generations. Perhaps that's a bit of hyperbole, but it certainly made for an interesting concept :D
"A penny saved is a penny earned — keep the change Edison!" Lincoln shouted as he drop kicked Thomas Edison into the rift created by Da Vinci's time machine. Edison faded away with a crackle of energy, now lost in the era of Genghis Khan. "Mr. Lincoln," Mark Twain mused, "action speaks louder than words, but not nearly as dramatic as a kick to the face. Well done sir. Tesla will rest well knowing free energy is safe... for now."
This Netflix original series is a love letter to all the children of the 80's. Perhaps this WPAP series will properly memorialize Barb and bring her justice... one can dream.
I almost never watch series shows (not even Game of Thrones or Westworld), but this one touched on all those special childhood memories — I was hooked immediately. Even the title sequence is so wonderfully vintage.
Fearless leaders of men and women, these are the captains who stand strong and persevere in the face of all adversity.
