Art and art-like things

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

Found this guy today: Jake Wood-Evans. Surreal and unsettling takes on classic paintings (also has more original drawings and prints).
