Mark, here's what I have. Judie J

Oxymorons would also be good source of ideas---those seemingly incongruous
                words that are used together like 'jumbo shrimp,' 'working
vacation,' and 'pretty ugly.' The following web sites that have
gobs of oxymorons .
                                        Anne C-H in Illinois

From Judy Decker's list:

Additional Visual Pun links:

                Surrealists' Puns

                Graphic Visual Puns

                Polymer Clay sculptures:

                Lesson plan for Robert Arneson (ceramic sculptor - noted
for his visualpuns)
info on Arneson)
                Paper Mache Visual Puns
                M.C. Escher (interesting - Still life to city scape)
                Lots of Pun links:

                Camouflage Visual Puns
                        Bev Doolittle's camouflage paintings were the first
                                                use of this term. The image
of another entity, such as a horse and rider, lies
within a natural landscape. Seeing pictures in clouds is
                the kind of visual play that spawns this kind of pun.
                                "The Forest has Eyes"
                Canned Food Drive by Vivian Nguyen
                Don Stuart's Art
               about the art)

                Reading an image (important for visual literacy):

                Thomas Nast - political cartoon (often visual puns)
