Gallery of 20 Madonna dolls above!
Doll savant Cyrus Lee Bronock is one of the only people to ever create dolls based on Madonna that look exactly like her. Remember those official Dick Tracy abortions? Check out the amazing likeness in the gallery above to wash them out of your brain forever.
“I have been an artist and doll collector since I was 10 years old. I sculpt, use watercolor dioramas and acrylics. I was upset that Madonna dolls were never made! So I took things into my own hands. Also, I am a big Madonna fan. I created the head mould and cast a mould for it, then filled the mould with plastic. I hand-paint each Madonna doll's face with care. First I sold them on eBay, but now I sell them exclusively through commission.”

Olivier Lebourg, a self-described filmmaker, photographer and nerd—and it wouldn't be wrong to insert bad-boy before any of those—has just released a series of images of “Wonder Woman” in various famous Madonna poses.
Just in time for Comicon!
See if you can spot the images to which he's paying homage.

Above, some classic examples of Amsel's work—timeless perfection.
You may not know the name Richard Amsel (December 1947—November 17, 1985) but you are almost without a doubt familiar with his absolutely classic work in movie posters, on TV Guide and elsewhere.
Amsel painted Lily Tomlin for Time and did all those drawings of Bette Midler that come to mind whenever you hear her name.
Amsel died of AIDS in 1985. The following excerpt from Emerald City is from October 30, 1978, and represents the only known footage of the artist discussing his craft, with special attention paid to his movie poster for Death on the Nile.
The clip also features great comments from equally legendary illustrator and artist David Edward Byrd (b. April 4, 1941).
It's a real treasure...
Noel Cruz demonstrates how he takes standard-issue (or even badly done celebrity dolls) and turns them into the spitting images of some of the biggest stars in the world. The “Maleficent” re-do is magnificent. The only one I'm not wild about is his Madonna—she's hard to do right.
But I bow to the talent...and the eyestrain.
For Dancers, award-winning filmmaker Antonio Da Silva shot 35 Portuguese dancers undressing—many with erections—and moving their bodies. This is considered an actual movie. You can watch a (Work Unfriendly) snippet here.
Da Silva says:
“Thirty-five Portuguese dancers undress in front of the camera. They become the object of desire with a sensual provocative performance. Eclectic dance disciplines help this film to explore an exhibitionist view of the male nude.
“This is a statement about the current financial situation in Portugal and the lack of fundings to support artistic initiatives. All contributions from this film will be given to the participants of DANCERS film, to encourage and inspire them, for them to give you one more private dance! These artists are not afraid to challenge the general thinking about male nudity and they showcase the potential of creative Portuguese performance arts.
“After all, the penis also can dance!”
Yes, some penises can dance like Rose in that Golden Girls episode.
