Celebrity by Chunlong Sun: Dictators with Plush Animals

Celebrity by Chunlong Sun_dictators with plushies

Chunlong Sun is specialized in retouching. He is based in Beijing, China – and he’s created this series, he calls “Celebrity“. Here we see 5 dictators; Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Muammar Khadafi aka Muammar al-Gaddafi, Mobutu Sesé Seko, and Saddam Hussein – with plush animals.

To create the images, Chunlong Sun had Zhou Yulong take photographs of some friends wearing uniforms and holding the plush animals. He then took the faces of the leaders from other photos and fairly seamlessly made composites through his retouching skills.

A touching documentary, which brought tears to my eyes, about a great big humpback whale – almost dying from drowning due to a fish net. And the awesome brave people, who decided to free it! Definitely worth the 8 minutes.

Sleeping Bear Bag by Eiko Ishizawa

Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-1 Sleeping-Bear-Bag-bBy-Eiko-Ishizawa-2

The Great Sleeping Bear” was originally created in 2007  by Eiko Ishizawa. Now it’s finally available for purchase.

“Because the sleeping bags will be made entirely from hand – including the fake nose and teeth – availability is going to be extremely limited. In 2014 Eiko only plans to make seven of them, but each one will be numbered so they can be cherished as pieces of art”.

$2,350 for the adult version, or just $2,050 for the kid’s sized model…
If this is a must-have, buy one here.
