Unflattering Portraits: an ongoing warts-‘n’-all caricature series by arts collective The Misanthrope Specialty Company that sets out to:
…lovingly commit everyone’s oft-ignored flaws to paper. No laugh line is too deep; no blackhead too small. Embrace your cold sore, under-eye baggage and bot fly cysts. They are a part of who you are and shouldn’t be glossed over or ignored.
Angus MacLane is an animator with Pixar.
He also happens to be the Michelangelo of Lego.
Among the many Danish-construction-toy-based wonders on his Flickr page are 313 examples of what MacLane calls ‘Cube Dudes’: caricatures of pop-culture icons that use this colourful but clunky medium to fairly astonishing effect.
Above (from top): Conan O’Brien, Marvin Nash from Reservoir Dogs, Captain Picard, Woody, Napoleon Dynamite and Mythbusters‘ Jamie Hyneman.
But you knew that.
