Wednesday September 24th, 2014

Nobilified.com specializes in adding modern people into classic paintings, and it has created a portrait of LeBron James that fits his King James moniker perfectly.

James has been inserted in Napoleon I in Coronation Robes by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy Trioson, with the regal orb fittingly replaced by a basketball.

Nobilified has also been commissioned for several works by the Philadelphia Eagles, with the team decorating the walls of its facility with players reworked into famous poses, including Jason Peters as Lakota Indian, Jason Kelce as "The Dude," Allen Babre as a caveman and Lane Johnson as Riff Raff.

The company says it hopes to have paintings of all the Eagles commissioned soon, and is reaching out to other sports teams to offer services in classing up their clubhouses with some fine art as well.
