CAC's So-late-night-it-is-pointless Art Thread

FunwithpicturesthatIwouldcallacontestbutnoprizeforyousothere time, morons.
Amongst all this week's doom was the state-by-state Presidential approval rating dump from Gallup.

Too lazy to upload their image here showing states that like him, states that hate him, and states in which he polls at his national average, I nevertheless took the liberty of creating a horribly crappy visual of Obama's key supporters, those tried and true blues who still get the vapors when he clears his throat:

So here is the super-fun-with-images-contest-that-isn't: save the image, go full snark on it, then resend it to me HERE (along with your regular art submissions). I will go through them and the ones that give me the biggest laugh will be re-uploaded in a follow-up thread on Sunday. You can use photoshop, mspaint, whatever you want to alter it, but the basics (the sad islands of blue) have to be somewhat visible.

Now onto the meat of the art thread this week.


Maetenloch pointed out this doc coming soon from the man who last brought you the story of a grizzly bear bowel movement (formerly Tim Treadwell):

While not as entertaining as the DarwinAward material of his last big doc, the revelation that cave painters tens of thousands of years ago (who weren't busy carving rocks into tits and/or sharp sticks to kill mammoths with to later brag about in said paintings to get them access to tits) manipulated the ungulating forms of the caves to aid in representational painting is both impressive and depressing- impressive that we had the intelligence at so young a culture to do that and depressing that much contemporary art has less thought in it than the guano that probably lines that cave. Either way it at least excuses the use of 3-D I suppose.

Onto this edition of Moron Art:

Shed #1 #3 by Stumbo. Digital photo 2011.

Travelogue by Soulpile. Pen and Ink on Bristol, 8" x 10" 2006.

Squidgate by Richard Bledsoe. Oil on Canvas, 36" x 48" 2009.

Adios and goodnight, you poor bastards.
