The bigger the star, the more awkward fan art you'll find. Here's a not-so-serious salute to Oprah Winfrey as she ends her talk-show reign, direct from her crafty fans.
Fan Art Tribute #1: The Oprah Pillow
This fan art
tribute is a conversation piece. As in, it'll inspire a conversation about what happened to your sense of taste. Though it could come in handy for scaring off that hot-date-turned-bad.
Fan Art Tribute #2: The Oprah Doll
"Hey, I just wanted to let you know that Oprah is interviewing my self-published book right now!"
"But I thought she retired from her talk show. And since when did you write?"
"Oh it's not a written book, just a collection of photos I've taken of you while you sleep. But yeah, Oprah is here, right on my kitchen table."
"On your kitchen table...oh no, you're talking about a doll, aren't you? I have to go."
And that is what people think you'll be doing with a fan art Oprah doll.
Fan Art Tribute #3: A Painting of Oprah Surrounded by Bees
Oprah's Favorite Things: John Travolta (or as she would say it, "JOHN TRAVOOOLLTTTAAAA"), cashmere blankets, fancy candles and vanquishing her enemies.
Oprah's Least Favorite Thing: Bumblebees.
What better way to make this clear to the bee world than by displaying this fan art? It's up to us to keep The Oprah safe, she's a national treasure.
Fan Art Tribute #4: Framed Oprah Sketch
Ever wish you could leap into a sketch, like that 80's video for Aha's "Take On Me"
? Right now would be a good time to do it. We could go hang out with the sketched Oprah in Glamour Shots. (The posing-with-popped-collar move is probably trademarked by Glamour Shots.)
Fan Art Tribute #5: "Look Under Your Chair!" Card
Turn any holiday, birthday or anniversary into your very own Oprah's Favorite Things episode. Think of the possibilities. (And I dare you to look away from the eyes, they're mesmerizing.)
