  • I really like the contrast between the house and the interior structure of the hanger..

  • joey

    i kinda wish the skull wasn’t there… it’s beautiful anyhow.

  • lapetitefaon

    god, I want to see this in person! / see photos of the inside of the house? I love the skull!

  • I hate to be ‘THAT’ guy, but the house was built single handedly in two months by Mr. Brent Kerr, Kid Zoom just painted it.

  • Ruth

    To be fair there was a construction team of over 10 people who worked on it. Including builders, the architect, carpenters, art designers, scenic artists and volunteers.
    The entire project had a team of over 25 people work on it.

  • I can’t wait to see what this kid does in the future. His work at Opera Gallery in NYC was amazing.

  • Bone78

    amazing!

  • JeffyP

    I was there for this, it was incredible.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
