Was Elvis Presley a Secret Unicorn? Doesn’t David Bowie make an awesome pegasus?
Jessie Bowie, who can be found on Etsy under the name sleepybowie, uses her watercolour skilles to paint celebrity heads onto the bodies of animals, or as she calls them, “anthropomorphic freaks.” She says, “It’s much more fun to paint humans that aren’t human.” It had never occurred to us to picture Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands with the body of a black cat, but somehow it makes perfect sense now that we’ve seen it. And Bill Murray’s Steve Zissou on the body of a rare Crayon Seahorse is pretty much perfection.
Be sure to check out Jessie’s sleepybowie Etsy store to see more of her awesome mutant celebrities.

We love Fred Rogers here at Geyser of Awesome, but we have to admit that we never thought he would ever have a song that sounds like a pop hit. This remix called “Garden of Your Mind” is so catchy we’ve already play it five times.
And yes, Mr. Rogers, I have grown something in the garden of my mind.

I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon’s humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.
