I know it’s an animated GIF I’m sorry, but I think it’s quite creative. Apparently the woman is Terri Kwan I can’t find much more context but I have found a colour version of it.
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge. -Isaac Asimov
I’ve never understood people who seemingly take pride in being ignorant. It happens an awful lot with technology, whenever I someone asks what I do, and I tell them I’m a computer programmer, they immediately say “I know nothing about computers” it’s a conversation stopper, but also they seem to take pride in not knowing anything about computers. The same applies to science, I just don’t get how anyone can’t want to at least try to learn a little about anything.

Tony Stark Meets everyones favourite 16 Bit Dinosaur, in this piece by artist Iron Yoshi by Nekoixa (YouTube) (Flickr) (Twitter). I think Rampaged Reality seem to have confused Yoshi with Kirbi with their interpretation of how this came to be though…
When Yoshi inhaled Iron Man and his powers, the Mushroom Kingdom was no longer the same. Awesome Marvel / Mario Bros. mash up by Nekoixa.

It hadn’t occurred to me that Rick from the Walking Dead was played by the guy who plays the guy in that chick flick that I keep on getting forced to watch…
I’ve been reading the Walking Dead Compendium, the comic is actually better than the TV show at points and different enough that it’s worth experiencing both separately.
90% of my traffic comes from people looking up Lichtensten costumes, that’s a fact. I thought I’d pander to anyone who is looking for more Roy Lichtenstein costume images who isn’t satisfied by my other two posts
The image above is I think of a Redditor, the images below are taken from the Neatorama and reddit comment threads.
Also special mention goes to Robots in disguise’s music video for featuring themselves in Lichtenstein esque make-up (23 seconds in):
After too many years of the same tired ‘ole remakes and trashy costumes everywhere, I decided to liven things up a bit! This Roy Lichtenstein comic book Pop Art really pops to life (get it?) with this homemade ensemble.
I spent hours polka-dotting myself silly and adding bold comic lines around my features. I sewed heavily colored fabric together to make the dress and lined pleats with fabric paint. I painted heavy lines on high heels and created a foam poster board “thought bubble” that read “Later that night…”GEE, I HOPE I WIN” (a nod toward any costume contests I would enter 😉 and hot glued it to a headband that I bought at a local craft store.
I created another foam board sign that read “GASP” to complete the comic look! On my legs I drew in knee-caps and added a “cross-hatching” effect. It took a good while, but I was stoked with the end result!
This is a picture of the woman in the Roy Lichtenstein painting as an actual comic book character.
For this homemade Roy Lichtenstein comic girl costume I purchased a yellow wig and painted black lines in it. I also purchased white stockings and painted polka dots on it. The earrings I made out of cellophane balls. The dress was just a polka dot dress that I have laying around the house. I coated my face with white paint and put red polka dots. I outlined all my features with black liquid eyeliner. I continued the polka dots on my arms with red acrylic paint.
I printed out one of Roy’s paintings and attached it with black ribbon with ribbon arm bands.

This Homemade Comic Book Pop Art Costume was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein pop art. Every year my goal is to wear a costume that’s original. I hate spending too much money on costumes sold at the store for two reasons, (1) the material is cheap, (2) 87 other people will probably be wearing it as well. This year I decided to do be Comic Book Pop Art which involved paint, make up and markers. I used some clothes that I already had and painted my wig yellow at the ends. It took me about 2 hours to create this cartoonish look. The dot placement and black outlining were key to creating the pop art style seen in comic books. I outlined my eyebrows, eyes, lips, nose, collar bone, cleavage, chin, cheeks, ears, arms, elbows and even my feet and created a “POW” out of markers and poster board paper.
This costume is for sure one of the coolest costumes that I have created.
I’m noticing a trend of comics/images on the net implying that people are dropping everything to play Skyrim, it is a good game but I think people are taking it a little too far. Either that or the suspension on this band wagon is going to fail fairly soon as far too many people seem to be jumping on it…
It’s funny how our attitude to winter differs when it relates to video game. That said, I think that when is snows outside I have a similar attitude whether it’s in-game or in real life…
This is not the reaction our cats have when a hair dryer is one anywhere near them they tend to flee the evil noise machine!
