Magazine Art

Pie:My dear reader 🙂 I hope you are having a marvelous Thanksgiving. I’ve been wanting to make this post for quite some time now. This obsession started for me a few years ago when my friend left a teen magazine at my house and said I could keep it. I don’t think she realized how I read magazines. As you know, or may not know I love art. So, when I see a magazine filled to the brim with celebrities I only see faces that are begging to be colored.  I had to obey. Their faces just needed to meet the tip of my sharpie pen and have a little  fun. The possibilities are endless and I assure you, it’s wicked fun. Grab a silly magazine filled to the brim with Hollywood and get out your sharpies and enjoy! You ready for some of my own creations? I warn you…there are a lot of Justin Bieber pictures….I don’t share the world’s fascination but this magazine dedicated a lot of pages to him….

 It is up to you! What do you see in their perfectly photoshopped faces? With a little bit of ink you can turn a normal teenie bopper singer into a grand duchess! Teddy added the hat. Isn’t it a nice touch?

As far as Zac Efron is concerned, in this picture he looked so suspicious. I knew at once he was a death eater. Can’t you just see it? He is standing next to Voldemort and they are showing off their tattoos with great pride. I can see it in the headlines “The Once Sweet Troy Bolton From High School Musical Turns To The Dark Side”

Vanessa is probably Bellatrix Lestrange. I knew there was a reason why I didn’t like her!!

I honestly have no clue who this strange little strawberry man is. Teddy made him into an apple and I added the highly fanciful beard. In actuality, it doesn’t matter who he is. I believe we have changed him for the better. I mean look at him! How many apple headed studs have you met?

Sometimes it’s not about making a celebrity looks absolutely ridiculous. You have the power to add their makeup and alter their clothes to your own pleasure. Go with the flow, if you ruin a picture who cares! Turn the next page and start on someone else. Be as artistic or as crazy as you want 🙂

Haha I don’t even know what to say. They had SO MANY JUSTIN BIEBERS! I GOT SO CARRIED AWAY! I have so many I don’t have room to put them all in this post. Be warned….a flood of Bieber is coming up. I can’t stop this madness.

This is one of my favorite pictures I have colored on. I wouldn’t put it past him to become King. He has hypnotized so many teenagers! He Just (IN) Can’t Wait To Be KING! It’s going to happen. This one makes me laugh! I have way too much fun with these magazines (don’t judge me!).

Are you getting inspired yet? Do you have the sudden urge to gather all of your sharpies and highlighters and just have a hay day? You can do it. I believe in you. Embrace this….”special” creative experience. Teddy and I used to make it into a game. We would keep the magazine and markers in the bathroom (okay I understand how that sounds weird but don’t deny the wonders of the bathroom!  You can read, journal, and draw on magazines in there) Whenever we would use the POTTY we would draw on a different page. It’s really hilarious! I would open up a page and just burst out laughing at what Teddy had created. For the most part I colored most of these magazines but she would draw too. Don’t worry I will let you know which ones are hers 🙂

This is Jimmy Neutron and Joe Jonas’ love child. I didn’t need to touch the bike with my pen….Its weirdness doesn’t need any help. Why does he have streamers and a skull on this handlebars? I do not think I will ever understand this bizarre bike.

Does this picture need any explaining? Hmmm….I’m sorry if it is hard to read 😦 The bottom part says “Yes, Harry’s got a scary scar but now he’s struggling to be respected.” Bahaha 🙂

Do I have any Very Potter Musical fans out there? Teddy and I even dedicated an entire post to this brilliant musical. It is completely worth watching!  If you haven’t seen it….you can watch it right now on youtube  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmwM_AKeMCk
If you are bored it will cure you and make you happy forever. Yeah I said forever, it is just that awesome! It is going to be totally awesome!

This picture is even better in person! My camera didn’t pick up all of the details 😦 But! I think you get the idea? It is a boss Zefron poster! Oh goodness I have no many Very Potter Musical quotes in this!

Isn’t the picture above attractive? Teddy made it. To be honest, it scares me.

There you have it! My computer is mad at me for uploading so many pictures but you know what? It was totally worth it! I hope this post inspires you to do creative things while on the potty too. Trust me, it is so much fun to draw in magazines. I probably get too much entertainment from this strange hobby. Teddy and I always say that our blog is about sharing things that make us laugh and feel better and that is exactly what magazine art does! I wouldn’t be surprised if it cures us all for good! Stranger things have happened. This post doesn’t have anything to do with Thanksgiving…. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, friends, cats, dogs, and food. Eat lots of food and tofurkey! Until we meet again ❤ Happy Thanksgiving my dear reader.

Love,
