    Passing though Ali Mall in Cubao, a mall named after Muhammad Ali in the Philippines I noticed the art gallery had a canvas of Optimus Prime named "Babysitter" by Jasper Penular. The Ali Art competition placed it as the winner.

    According to Penuliar, the painting of the iconic “Transformer” depicts a child’s fantastical view of a shopping mall, where everything, most especially toys, seem alive and “larger than life.” A simple, common and relevant insight on the transcending eyes of a child that many of us may agree to, or better yet… Remember.

    Yes I do see the irony a painting of movie Optimus Prime wins in a art competition and mall named Muhammad Ali.

    well, it's obvious that it was referenced, but that doesn't take away from what he accomplished

    yes i think you're right

    there are no modifications on the ugly botmode, so it seems to be clear that this was a highres pic which was painted over with oil-paints (not photoshop i think)

    very cool, but not win-worthy in my eyes
