Artists Makes Real People Look Like Paintings – And the Effect Is Way Eerie [PICTURES]

How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade‘s painted people look like works of art but move like humans — making for an eerie sight.

Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas.

Trees Grown to Look Like People Are Way Creepy [PICTURES]

Depending on their surroundings, some trees grow abnormally, with their trunk and branches conforming to nearby debris or blockages.

Former jeweler Peter “Pook” Cook has perfected a process to replicate this himself and actually “sculpt” growing trees into specific formations. Cook began doing this in the late 80s, inspired by fig trees growing on a cliff face. It took him years to refine the method, but the Australian now turns trees into unnatural but indeniably cool shapes, including eerie, human-like figures.
