Artist is like Chef. It's a title that one might bestow upon oneself. Doctors, all doctors, must at least pass med school exams. Artists have no such quality control.

And on that note, art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

Bad artists don't kill their patrons when they make a mistake. Usually.

If that calls it art, then it's art to whatever that thing is.

"creepy" is when the artist uses parts of real babies...

A beholder does not hide. Conversely, nether does one hide from a beholder.

Odd that it is in the 'weird news' section, when everything in the Mirror is 'weird.'

It really can't hide considering its method of travel is to essentially 'fart' its way around a room like self-propelled hot air balloons.

/Yah they released a detailed source book devoted to beholders years ago, it was a fascinating read

They did one for 3rd, too. Well, it was largely aimed at Mindflayers, but it had a huge section on Beholders too. Beholders take the cake, IMO, it's too bad they're purely a D&D invention. I'd love to have the monster in unrestricted use.

For once it's an actual interesting art thing involving Barbies and not some childish chimp out designed to shock people who live under rocks.

As someone who is actually named Ken, I'm getting a kick out.... Oh, who cares...

Thought it was going to be about the documentary Marwencol.

I like the Marwencol art better.

Seriously interesting and enjoyable film, check it out.

Sorry, no. One must graduate from an accredited culinary institute to be a recognized legitimate Chef.

Artists also have designations as to whether they are self-proclaimed. Me, I'm a schmuck with a paint brush. My buddys wife, a very talented artist who attends classes and has her art in several galleries and her art has been featured in many organized shows where she has sold dozens of finished works, is on her way to being a known, noted artist with legitimate name recoginition.

Eh, professional cooks have more quality control than an artist. Becoming a professional cook that actually makes decent money requires training and usually years of apprenticeship. Cooking is much more science than art in general as well as there are only a finite number of ways one can prepare any given dish or use certain ingredients. The boundaries are much more rigid than a piece of art.

Art, on the other hand, is more subjective and the materials used to create pieces of art are much more vast and can be quite abstract (as this article proves.) It's almost quite literally limited by imagination and only imagination. Artists succeed by being in the right place at the right time and appealing to the right people with the right style. I'd say it's SIGNIFICANTLY easier to make a dish that has wider appeal than a painting or a song. What is considered 'tasty' is easier to determine for a chef because the human palette as a whole really doesn't change.

Even pop music, which is almost scientifically produced to be ear worms, has changed over the years as people and society have changed. Food, on the other hand, doesn't really change. People find different combinations of ingredients that happen to go together all the time, of course, but most of those are variations of tried-and-true recipes. There's no such thing in art except within genres. People get bored much easier of seeing or hearing the same thing than they do tasting it, after all.

Cthulhu would approve. Definitely. Though the art could use more noodly appendages.

Lord of the Pings is a genius

That said, a young lady (time and circumstances withheld) I was with one evening warmed up using a Ken Doll as a boner.

If you get my drift

(yes, alckyhol was involved)

I just would have guessed someone lost their lover to an artist.

Apparently "works of art" is a synonym for "nightmare fuel"

too bad this wasn't one of those awesome repainting jobs like the guy that redid dolls to look like the famous
