Fan Art: Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert Silhouettes

Stephen Colbert Fan ArtWelcome to Fan Art, where we highlight the glorious manifestations of Stephen, as rendered by fans and talented artists.

The Shadow Studio creates startlingly accurate silhouettes of its subjects, which run the range from Harry Potter, to Disney princesses, and our heroes Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, of course. The artist, whose username is inknpaint, elaborates on how these amazing portraits are concocted: “I’m a silhouettist and cut-paper artist. All pieces are cut by hand using surgical scissors and sometimes a scalpel.”

To celebrate Independence Day, we have the darling entry below: “I thought I’d cut silhouettes of two of my favorite modern patriots for the occasion: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.”

Fan Art: Stephen Colbert Puppet

Stephen Colbert Fan ArtWelcome to Fan Art, where we highlight the glorious manifestations of Stephen, as rendered by fans and talented artists.

“A while ago I built a Stephen Colbert puppet for season two of my web series Dotboom. The idea was that I would attempt to get the real Stephen Colbert to provide his voice as a guest-star.”

So explains Ontario, Canada based puppeteer Brian Hogg. On his behance website, Mr. Hogg details his concerted effort to both build this adorable puppet and create a groundswell of support to get our fearless host to lend his voice for his “Stephen Colbert Puppet Challenge.” Although Hogg was unsuccessful, the result is charming, don’t you think?

A Look Back: Second City’s “Life on a Spit”

Stephen Colbert A Look Back

Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.

Due to the abrupt closing of the Boston Market down the street from Chicago’s Second City, the theatre paid homage by releasing a little gem of scene from 1994 called “Life on a Spit,” featuring our fearless host as a philosophical “Boston Chicken” Man behind the counter:

I love that this scene takes something as innocuous as a place famed for its runny mac-n-cheese, then injects a little bit of profundity into it. Wouldn’t it be better if we were all revolving, and evolving? The results would be delicious. Enjoy the vid!
