Someone call Fox. Hugh Jackman may be done playing Wolverine after his next movie, but that doesn't mean the fun needs to stop. In his free time, artist Randy Bishop likes to doodle the X-Men, and his cutesy style is almost a dead ringer for the animated action flicks of the late 90's (Iron Giant, Treasure Planet).

Sony is doubling down on Spider-Man making both a new live-action and animated film franchise... Why not, X-Men?

This kid may love art, but he doesn't have to use it as a crutch.

Some poor, uncoordinated tween lost his balance and unfortunately found it again in a 350-year-old painting in Taiwain.



Even more unfortunately for him, they released the surveillance footage of this clumsy person, struggling with the awkwardness of his growing body.



The Telegraph gives more details:

The 12-year-old lost his footing next to the 17th century Paolo Porpora oil painting called Flowers, valued at $1.5 million (£950,000), at a Leonardo da Vinci show at Huashan 1914 Creative Park in Taipei on Sunday.

He lost his balance, stumbled over the safety rope and pressed a can of soda into the painting to steady himself in the security footage released by the exhibition organisers.

Andrea Rossi, the exhibition curator, said the boy seemed "nervous" and asked that he not be blamed for the damage. The family will not be asked to pay the restoration costs.



They did confirm with a local news source that the painting is insured and this kid's ensuing teenage years will not have to further suffer under the weight of crushing debt, leaning on him as he did that work of art.



This is what the painting looked like pre-kid:



And here's the hole he made:



Here are some museum experts trying to assess the damage done.



We're sorry to say it, kid. But this will not be the last inelegant thing to happen to you in adolescence.

Artist David Irvine takes what would be your average, boring piece of thrift store art and turns it into a pop culture masterpiece. Because let's face it: a quaint cottage home is always better when Jason Voorhees is standing in front of it.
