Lunch Atop a Skyscraper - Variations on a Theme

Posted: 22/01/2013 15:40

While I'm primarily known for producing photorealistic images of freaky animal hybrids (my site), I thought I'd branch out into other projects. My "Zombie celebrities" collection is coming along nicely but turning Brian Blessed into a zombie takes longer than you'd think and it will be a while before I'm ready to bring them to a public stage.

So, inspired by the popular meme of sad Keanu Reeves on a park bench and having ploughed through 689 entries on the Sad Keanu tumblr and finding what I was looking for on the last page. I decided to go about playing with the famous "Lunch Atop a Skyscraper" image (wiki article here). So, here's the result of a few hours of mindless pixel-pushing. I hope you enjoy them:

We've just run out of wine. What are we going to do about it?

It ain't easy being grey. The guys either side of him appear to sympathise

The fab four. This is my personal favourite because it looks so natural and the builders seem interested in the newspaper too
