Forget MySpace and check out MyFace, or, rather, the art that gifted face paint artist/illusionist James Kuhn
does, displayed on both his Flickr
page and his Face Paint In Motion YouTube
channel. The self-described
"Artist, Face paint illusionist, Drag Queen, Performance Artist, and full time Christian" has been uploading videos of his face paint art, such as the Rocky Horror
"Sweet Transvestite" themed clip above which he posted two days ago, or the brilliant Golden Girls
clip (below) that he produced and uploaded six months ago.
Ever the perfectionist, Kuhn said of the Golden Girls
piece at the time, "I planned on painting Sophia
on my forehead! but ran out of room... I need a bigger head! I am not too happy with this one, I should have searched for better pics to use as my models. The ones I pulled up were too small and Bea
was in black and white. I should not try such a big project on a weeknight! Better for Saturdays when I can play all day long and am usually more rested. I gotta get some new glasses too."
On the Three Oaks, Michigan artist's YouTube channel, which is subtitled BibleArtWork
, Kuhn has an impressive 234 different videos of various face paint illusions uploaded, usually with a cool accompanying soundtrack, ranging from Bettie Page Pin Up Girl
to Miss Piggy & Kermit
and many, many more.
