The creative people over at PAPER Magazine have piqued my attention once again. This time with a imaginative and kind of frightening, take on high fashion and me likey so much! Check out Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, genius comedians and viral internet trailblazers, all glammed-up in retro 80's avant-garde garb and eager to strike a pose.
The minds behind Tim and Eric Awesome Show. Great Job! and Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories discuss the internet and inspiration in the PAPER Magazine's article and name Cindy Sherman as an inspiration for the two.
...all of our characters are pretty big and grotesque -- horrible little moments of people that you see in real life. So to see a woman [like Sherman] take herself that far is hugely inspiring.
"Pretty big and grotesque" indeed, but also a prime example of why the internet is a boundless, magical and scary place of imagination. GREAT JOB!
Now enjoy some sexy pics!
