Brandon Bird

One of the thinks I like about my job is I get to see movie flotsam & jetsam floating around the building. One of the executives has a bookshelf filled with Kevin Spacey's notebooks from Se7en (as well as a big, rusty can of spaghetti from the same movie); there are plenty of Lord of the Rings swords floating around, and another guy has several fake porno VHS cases from Boogie Nights (which are very disconcerting until you realize they're props and not lost early works from Julianne Moore). My absolute favorite thing, though, is a copy of Newsweek from the upcoming (and by all accounts great) The Wedding Crashers. It has Christopher Walken on the cover, above the headline "Our Next President?"

Anyway, that's a roundabout way of saying that I think Christopher Walken is inherently funny; even the idea of Christopher Walken makes me laugh. So a Norman Rockwell-style painting of Christopher Walken building a robot in his garage? Yeah, I'm a fan. So if you're a connoisseur of fine art (and who isn't?), I'd highly recommend the paintings of Brandon Bird. You can find his site here (but also at http://painteroflight.com (!)) . A few highlights:
