What’s a better way to strike fear and admiration into your house guests than a portait of Steve Jobs dressed as a Russian Army General? Nothing, that’s what. Except maybe a flamethrower, or pet crocodile. But you don’t have either of those do you?
Replaceface is now selling prints, canvases, cards, cases, skins and even pillows of the portrait of Steve Jobs as a Russian Army General, so you can carry General Steve with you everywhere.
Did Steve Jobs really pose for that portrait? No, but that doesn’t make it any less badass. Back during the Napoleonic Wars, an English portrait artist named George Dawe managed to paint 329 portraits of the Russian generals active during Boney’s attempted invasion and subjugation of the Motherland.
There’s a Tumblr blog called Replaceface which is devoted to taking Dawe’s portraits, cutting out the orginal face and replacing it with the freshly painted visage of a celebrity. So while you can grab a copy of Russian General El Jobso’s portrait, you can also snatch up portraits of Bill Murray, Leonardo DiCapri, and Patrick Swayze doing their best Russian General impersonations too.
