Are These Guys More Creative Than Your Coworkers? (Prob.)

You know how it goes. You’re bored at work and your co-workers are bored at work, so you get into trouble. Squarespace employees Francesco Fragomeni and Chris Limbrick were tooling around and decided to get creative. They recreated Michelangelo’s masterpiece “Creation of Adam” on a couch in their office. Everybody loved it so much that Fools Do Art became an ongoing project among the staff to recreate iconic works of art using only office supplies (and things found around the office… like sombreros and unicorn masks) and smartphone photo editing only. Since then, the photos have become a lot more detailed and the results are, well, awesome.
