Jon Burgerman, an artist in New York City, created a new photo series called Head Shots. He used digital editing to make violent movie posters even more bloody. Here he is being dispatched by Legolas and James Bond. Content warning: most are more gory than these two.
Here at Neatorama, we've long appreciated Burgerman's work. You may remember his giant black and white murals and his fun color-in wallpaper. He's an inventive person who always has a new take on what constitutes art. In an interview with Digital Arts, Burgerman explained how he keeps open to fresh ideas:
"Dress smartly for work, dress not smartly for work. You know, shake up your routine. Routine is the killer, I think, because of what happens when you slip into a routine. Some routines are useful but generally, creatively you get lazy and you're not really making challenging decisions anymore you're just going: "I know what to do."
"Your brain wants to do that, your brain enjoys familiarity so you have to sort of push yourself. That's why it's very good going on holiday because you're like: 'I'm in a new place. Where are we going to go today? What are we going to eat? That smells great. This food's great. That's horrible. Look at that building.'
"You're alert to so many new things around you. Your brain is fizzing and buzzing and it's exciting, even if the place isn't very nice it's a new experience. So we have to try and inject that into our day-to-day lives I think.
"Even wearing stupid socks could be helpful."
