James Kerr’s Scorpion Dagger, has cleverly reproached the seriousness of 15th and 16th century painting, found most commonly in the further reading required for the interpretation of religious iconography, by merging contemporary elements such as hot dogs, taking selfies, skate parks, and various social media outlets, just to name a few.

“In an act of da Vinci-esque brilliance, the Montreal-based illustrator has combined the mastery of early Renaissance paintings with the comic stylings of a Mike Judge television show. His site “Scorpion Dagger” features GIFs of beer-chugging priests, crowd-surfing disciples, and Jesus with a jetpack.” – Margaret Rhodes, Wired
