This Sunday Australians across the world will celebrate Australia Day, the country's official national birthday, or basically the Aussie equivalent of the 4th of July. And just like in the U.S., most Aussies spent the day at the beach, or having a barbecue. Remember, Australia's seasons are the exact opposite of America's, so they're in mid-summer, not dreary winter.
Since Australia is a land "down under", celebrate by photoshopping anything upside down. Take any image and turn some element(s) in it upside down. Many thanks to azwoodbox for the themepost.
Thursday, January 23, is the 188th birthday of Edouard Manet. He was a French modernist painter. He was one of the first 19th-century artists to paint modern life, and a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. Known as one of the most controversial artists in his time, Edouard Manet has risen above his detractors to prove his genuine talent that is worthy of emulation.
Photoshop any painting by Edouard Manet to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Manet paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days..

This Friday is the 121st birthday of Alphonse Gabriel "Al" Capone - one of the world's most famous gangsters in history. Despite his criminal actions, Al Capone became a cultural icon and his criminal mastermind, lifestyle and look gave the inspiration for many books and movies.
To mark the 121st birthday of Al Capone, take any celebrity, politician, or animal and make a "wanted" poster of it. Here's a good example by GarRobMil, and another good example by KriszTianOlah and one by johnx1. Many thanks to funkwood for the themepost.

British actor Rowan Atkinson, most known for his Mr. Bean character, celebrates his 65th birthday this Monday. Atkinson originally planned his career in science, before he turned into acting. He was always described as a "funny geek", when he studied in Newcastle University and Oxford University. In one of his interviews Rowan said that if he did not become an actor, he would be a math professor at one of the small quiet universities in the UK.
Happy 65th Birthday, Rowan!
To mark the 65th birthday of Rowan Atkinson, photoshop him any way you wish.

Abstract art uses a visual language of simplified forms, colors and lines. Simplification in abstract art often knows no limits. One of the most famous abstract paintings is "Black Square" by Kazimir Malevich, which he unofficially called "black square on white background". Another one of Malevich's masterpieces takes simplification one step further - it is called "White on White" and shows a white square on a white background.
Take any famous painting and turn it into abstract art by simplifying its forms, elements and colors. Many thanks to Terhonen for the Themepost.
