by T.S. Burroughs

Spy magazine's "Separated at Birth" feature meets computer technology meets drawing mustaches on posters in this amusing little collection of composite pictures of famous faces.

Burroughs, an actor-comic-stunt-man with a quirky sense of humor who once created a 32-by-50-foot T-shirt for the Statue of Liberty, is not really daring. He doesn't try, for instance, the promising blend of Hillary Clinton and House minority whip Newt Gingrich. He also makes some strange matches, like merging John Wayne with supremely twitty English author and actor Quentin Crisp, but most of his morphs are innocuous and some, such as Macaulay Culkin combining with a troll doll and Michael Jackson becoming one with Barbie, are downright inspired. Keith Richards with Barney the dinosaur is fun too, though Saturday Night Live had a better juxtaposition: Richards and cartoon villain Skeletor. (Contemporary, paper, $6.95)
