Weird Art Month: Cahill Wessel

By Sam Reeve

San Francisco Bay artist Cahill Wessel plays around with pop culture in surreal and hilarious ways , giving you everything you’d ever hoped to see. Hover over the pictures (or click through the gallery) to view the titles of each piece – they’re almost as golden as the pieces themselves.

Also on his website are some celebrity collages with accompanying fanfiction. Here’s my favourite:

fanfiction miley“Deep in the jungle that is New York’s Fashion Week, Miley Cyrus showcases her tribal styles for Gotham’s harshest critics. Kanye hid deep inside Miley’s uterus, and a disappointed crowd gasped in horror as he emerged stoned, wet, and lonely.”

See more of his celebrity fanfiction here.

Day 18: Steve Seeley

By Sam Reeve

Normally I’m not super into art that portrays celebrities. It can be a cop-out for true weirdness and just a gimmick for garnering more attention. Steve Seeley‘s work, however, has won me over. I was sold upon seeing the first image below. Luckily for those who still hate celebrity-inspired art, not all his work is like that. Enjoy!

In 2004 Steve started something he calls “The Creature Project”. It’s an ongoing project of altering the cover of Dell/ Whitman’s UFO Flying Saucers #5, originally published in 1975. Below are a few pieces.
