Constantinos Kyriacou / Jessi's Metal


"Whenever there's trouble, we're there on the double / We're the Bloodhound Gang..." Tuesday's bonus ring reminded me of Cyprus artist Constantinos Kyriacou and his PBS ring, above. Well, that's not what he calls it, but I do — and not just because the PBS logo consists of three faces in profile. If you're like me and grew up watching "3-2-1 Contact," it's hard not to be reminded of "The Bloodhound Gang" and the episode where the gang discredits a man's alibi by showing it wasn't really him at home but, rather, his cardboard silhouette attached to a running toy train, casting a moving shadow on the curtains that looked life-like to anyone passing by his window. And he would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids! [Insert fist shake.]


Below, a couple more of his pieces (don't worry, these ones don't send me into any long-winded memories):
