15 Awesome Celebrity “Land of Confusion” Pictures

Celebrity Drawings

Do all of you remember the video “Land of Confusion” by Genesis back in the 80s?  Man was that a weird video or what?  Recently I stumbled across an artist by the name of Sebastian Kruger whose work is unbelievably similar to the characters in that video.    The type of art is called “New Pop Realism” and I gotta say it’s pretty freaky.

I think the premise is that the art accentuates certain features on the face and takes them way out of proportion.  And yet you still find the face to be “appropriate?”  I guess that’s the right word.

In any event I chose 15 celebrity drawings from Kruger that were pretty sweet…..

  1. I guess Keith Richards lends himself really well to these types of pictures!

    I’m guessing the fourth one down is Clapton? Or is it Stephen King?

  2. I would love to see an animated film in this style, or maybe just a short experimental film.
    It’s interesting because you can focus on certain features, and define characters by those features, or you can draw focus away from a characteristic, but still keep it in view, and use that characteristic later on as a plot device.
