#filmswithonelettermissing

There has recently been a hashtag trending on Twitter that focuses around removing a single letter from a film title to create a new and humourous result, #filmswithonelettermissing. Needless to say, it has proven to be very popular, trending for a number of days and spawning a huge number of suggestions, many complete with photoshopped images for the newly created films. Coincidentally, this is something that illustrator Austin Light was doing for the month of October, long before the hashtag started. His Inktober 2014 series features a different drawing for each day of the month, using the film typos of social networking site Reddit as subject matter.

This resulted in a collection of 31 hilariously witty images, each complete with a short altered synopsis for the new film. Below are a few of my favourites, you can view the whole set here.

Obocop – The story of how a police officer works through his PTSD and adjusts to his new robotic implants with the help of the sexy soothing sound of his oboe.

Finding Emo – An insufferable teenage fish runs away from home. His father contemplates searching for him.

Jurassic Par – Two dinosaurs set out to prove they’re more than just killing machines. Thanks to a loophole in the rules they find a spot on the PGA tour and golf their way to the top of the food chain.

Harry Otter – A young boy finds out who, and what, he is. Magic ensues.

Alen – The story of a lonely cashier named Alen who yearns for something more. Something like eating astronauts.

Bricksy

One of my favourite artists is Banksy and one of my favourite toys when growing up was LEGO, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this. Canadian photographer Jeff Friesen has created a series of photos that merge these two elements, recreating some of Banksy’s most famous pieces in LEGO brick form.

Friesen has then played on LEGO’s values of imagination and creativity, visualising what the wider context of the piece is by placing it within a larger LEGO environment.

Here’s a few of my favourites;

Eyebombing 2 – Even Googlyer

Whilst I was writing the last blog post, I came across a couple more examples of “eyebombing” and thought I would use a quick post today to show you them.

First is the work of ich bin KONG who used small polystyrene balls to bring his chosen objects to life. A few of my favourites are below and there are more on his website here.

Street artist D*Face turned his attention to discarded christmas trees for his work. His “eyebaubles” project turned the trees into humorous figures that have a wide range of expressions, from depressed to angry to confused.
