This week, my firstborn asked me to teach him photoshop, which means we now have a lot of famous paintings with search and rescue vehicles added to them. [Twitter thread]

Death of Icarus seems like a logical place to add some search-and-rescue.

This is so fun, and they're very well done. I first learned Photoshop (before it was called that!) when I was 11 or 12. The current version blows my mind with what it can do.

Lol, I'm an illustrator and I'm being replaced by my own medium

Somewhat reminiscent of Giant Military Cats.

Ha, adamrice, that's exactly the one I was looking for, too. I wonder if they'd do sculptures as well? Because poor ol' Laocoön and sons could really use some help from animal control.

Thanks, Bloxworth Snout - this was really fun to start the day with!

The birthplace of great artists is almost never the place where their lives began.

Came looking for Washington Crossing the Delaware. Was not disappointed.

Was kinda "meh" till I saw the defibrillator

Nice! Although I am skeptical that anyone requesting to learn Photoshop within the last week would be capable of the results shown.

They're often very subtle, which is really delightful.

+1 for that defibrillator. Threadreader spool has larger images.
