Weird artist re-creates famous sci-fi scenes—with face paint!

Lucky Batman! All he had to deal with was Two-Face. Who knows whether he'd have been able to handle James Kuhn, a wacky artist with hundreds of faces. Kuhn loves painting his face so much that one day he decided he'd do it up differently every day for a year—and when that wasn't enough, he did it all over again!

He's taken his inspiration from almost every pop culture icon you can imagine, so there've been plenty of sci-fi, fantasy and comic-book subjects. We've embedded a few of our favorite clips below.


Kirk and Spock


Harry Potter, Dumbledore and Lord Voldemort


Planet of the Apes


Batman and Robin


Lost in Space
