Ben Franklin VS. Zeus by SharpWriter Ben Franklin VS. Zeus by SharpWriter
In 1752 before Ben Franklin invented Pizza, Gameboy, the iPad2 or Mexican food he was contemplating how to conquer electricity. Being the genius he was he decided go get it at its source, this being Zeus. Strapping himself to a kite, and equipping some homemade lightning claws he ascended through the clouds and into the realm of the Gods to battle it out with Zeus. This is a painting capturing the exact moment the battle started.

And he's surrounded in a cloud of money. This cannot possibly get any more gangsta.

Unlike some of the other fights in your work, this one poses the enticing question: who wins? The viewer is left thinking about the life of the painting long after actually taking it in, just as we are left with Ben's inventions hundreds of years later. Genius.

I can't not see the rectangular area to the left of Zeus as anything but a poster or something of a stormy sky when my eye's aren't directly on it, and even then it still kinda looks like that.

Incredible. (This is like something John Hodgman would have come up with.)
