"King of Pop Baby Drop" has kind of a ring to it!

PopSculptures.com is a site offering "a new type of news media: 3D News." Their mission is "to provide a 3D portal to the latest Pop Culture events. Our sculptures provide a new visually stimulating way of remembering current and past world events." Ethically, their most recent sculptures range from the sick, to the really sick. Anyone wager a guess that Jeff Koons is somehow behind this?

Bonus: they will make custom sculptures of your friends and family. Looks like Irony's back in town, baby.

Their sculpting ability leaves a lot to be desired, unless you are shooting for that dollar-store toy look. I had to chuckle, though, at their swipe at one of their competitors on this page, who is infamously bad about actually doing the custom sculpting work once they have the deposit money.

Oh, man, good to know, MegoSteve. I had been thinking about using AndGore for a friend who would get a total kick out of being an action figure. Won't be doing that anytime soon, now. Thanks.

Good Jeff Koons link, dhoyt. I agree that the sculpture aspect of these Popsculptures leaves a bit to be desired, but the idea is compelling.

I wonder what sculptor Ron Mueck might do with this theme.

Here's a better Mueck link.

This also made me think of Constantin Boym, but more affordable.
