I can't think of a good "Übermensch" joke right now... but yeah, the pic is really nice.

@Frantic: Alexander Bard? I was thinking of Ned Flanders.

Nice interpretation and refurbishment of that classic image. It's cleverly done and I like the poetry of the background.
The grid is a powerful device to help enlargement and translation. I've used it myself several times.

Here in Southern part of Sweden, we have seen another hairy man recently, known for other things,
A. Strindberg. Locally posted on by-stands for buses and so forth, and who couldn't tie the full Windsor for sure.
Nice to see those old men get out of their coffins once in a while to see the daylight I'd guess.

The general thematic almost reminded me of this old thing...

...let's philosophize with a hammer!
Yeah, and always keep in mind what Heidegger said about pixeling: Nobody ever thought about the pixelhood of the pixel as such!

I think this is also where Alexander Bard (Swedish guy) got his mustache from.

...and yes.. let's philosophize with a hammer!

CRRN: It's of course based on the famous http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1291157969p8/1938.jpg , and it's no secret either. Everyone have seen that picture. It's not wired (if that is what you mean) - I actually saw the picture being worked on at X.

Very nice! Only the arm looks a little freaky (or at least the gray quarter-circle to the lower left, by the arm, which make the arm look like it's bent in a very odd angle). Makes me want to try out some other philosopher. :)
EDIT: It could be my eyes fooling me. When I look at it again the weirdness is gone.

One more thing: Is it something new that graphicians tend to crop the borders on their screenshots? Yes, it makes the picture "look better", but it's still no screenshot.
