Waging the “Make Art More Awesome” War

The “Make Art More Awesome” online challenge, with its straightforward prompt to “open up Photoshop, take a famous (or otherwise) piece of art, and make it AWESOME,” has spawned both tasteful and tasteless updates to classic art. Sure, there are crude renditions with the bathroom humor of a middle schooler who just discovered how to use the pen tool. But luckily, there are the clever diamonds in the rough like the animated Pong Mondrian, a Mona Lisa with shifty (dare we say possessed?) eyes, and Whistler’s Stepmother. Here, the best of the bunch, with our top picks in descending order.
