Ack, what have they done to you, Bella, Edward, and Jacob?!? An artist with one twisted vision has created a series of Twilight-themed portraits, but they're not exactly flattering. Artist Casey Weldon has painted the Twilight saga characters as pigs. Yes, pigs. He's calling the portrait series "Twilight Zone," and he displayed them at a gallery in Los Angeles.
So here they are: Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black as pig people. They have snouts and angry red eyes. I ... I don't know what to say. For once, I am at a loss for words. And yet, I am a blogger. So I must come up with some words anyway. But first, I need to take a few deep breaths.
Okay, I'm better now. So ... we've taken three very attractive actors and turned them into monsters. Why? Why would anyone do this? Weldon says he got the idea from the Twilight Zone episode, "Eye of the Beholder," in which people who look like pigs are considered beautiful, and a woman we would consider beautiful is looked upon as disfigured. Get it? He's messing with our ideas of beauty.
Yeah, the art world. I mean, it's just kind of silly sometimes. There's a lot of pot smoking and time spent alone with your paints.
Anyway, now we know what Robert Pattinson would look like as a pig man. I guess this is our cue to ask ourselves if he's still a hottie, and if the answer is no, why that is. Why don't we think pigs are hot? I don't know -- probably because pigs aren't people. Did someone really have to paint a series of pig portraits for us to figure that out? Maybe Weldon just thinks the Twilight saga was kind of dumb and wanted to make fun of it, which I would understand. But now we have these images in our minds, and ... (shudder) like vampires, those images are forever.
What do you think of these portraits?
