If Christmas Eve isn’t a holiday at your office and you find yourself stuck in a cubicle feeling resentful with nothing to do, take a cue from these two Squarespace employees in New York. The looked no further than an art history book and an iPhone camera to find endless entertainment by recreating famous paintings, many of which required some creative drag.
The only rule was that all costumes and props had to come from office supplies.
