In Case You Haven’t Noticed, I’m Making an Art Form Out of Unflattering Screen Captures

screencap headliner

Ahh, the fine art of the unflattering screen capture. So many of you blithely click on a video or a thumbnail image without properly giving the consideration that such enjoyable images deserve. Do you every think about how long it takes to find the proper video – a high quality one with the subject yelling or angry? And then to wait, with bated breath, arched over the keyboard anxiously, fingers poised impatiently over the ‘print screen’ key, watching for that perfect tick, the surprise, the sneer, or perhaps simply the over enunciation of an “o” to give the appearance of hysterical screeching. And then, there it is! CLICK! A simple copy and paste and some snarky lettering, and you have a masterwork worthy of the Louvre.

No doubt somewhere in the Elysian Fields, Praxiteles, Michaelangelo, Rubens and Picasso share a laugh while appreciating a perfectly timed screencap on their iPad as they peruse through the Soopermexican blog.

Well you don’t have to sift through all my images, you lucky slobs. Here are some of my favorites for you to enjoy (click to see the story behind the screencap):
