Cool Stuff & Geekery – Valentine’s Day is just a few days away. Last minute shopping for gifts could be a big headache, but Kult Studio has got you covered. They’re currently offering a 20% discount on all their Marvel artwork. I don’t know about you, but that chill that ran up my spine usually means I’m about to bring […]
General – This is what kids should be taught in school. NOT! Then again, looking at this piece of artwork makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? You can thank Jim Hensonmethamine for “Sea is for Cookie!”; and don’t forget the source of inspiration – The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. Source
Features – I’ve got a thing for calendars, but not just any kind of calendar, mind you. If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you’ve probably seen images from my Song of Ice and Fire calendar. If you’re into unique calendars as well, then you will probably be interested in the Sexy Monsters Calendar, the brain child […]
Games – Can’t get enough Grand Theft Auto V? Neither can these artists, who’ve imagined GTA set in their favorite fictional universes.
Features – Who can resist the charms of those delightfully madcap Minions? The little yellow assistants grow more popular by the day, and here’s proof: 40 mashups of Minions and other pop culture characters.
Cool Stuff & Geekery – Books, movies, TV, and video games of late have depicted the end of the world in a wide variety of ways. Check out these 30 global landmarks and how they might look in a post-apocalyptic world.
Features – Something about Pacific Rim has brought out the best in its artistically-minded fans. I’m in awe of the spectacular skills they show off in these amazing works of art.
Features – Just the other night, I was talking with an old friend about Battlestar Galactica. As “old” as the TV series is, we just don’t get tired talking about it. I don’t think we ever will. In fact, let me ask you: How did you feel after watching the final episode? Did you also feel as […]
General – Who wouldn’t want a full size replica handheld Portal device to play with, stare at, or simply show off? I suppose there are people who exist who couldn’t care less about Portal, but I think I am not wrong in assuming that a good number of you will be interested in joining an art competition with […]
Features – I think we’ve all seen and heard of the Van Gogh-Star Wars “collaboration”, resulting in one of the most recognisable print mashups in the geek world today: the Death Starry Night print. How would you like to have a Death Starry Night print, signed and all by the artist known by the name The Belligerent Monkey? […]
Features – Some people just like it dark, and if you’re that type, you’ll appreciate the work of Marko Manev, a mixed media artist, comic artist, writer, freelance graphic designer, and illustrator all rolled into one. He has drawn up a bunch of superhero posters, but they are not your usual colorful, eye-popping artwork. Marko calls his […]
Features – It’s been a while since we saw something Periodic Table-related, hasn’t it? Thanks to The Mary Sue, I have a treat for those of you who can’t get enough of the Periodic Table. (Yes, we know you have the Periodic Table shower curtain in the bathroom.) Kaycie D. is an artist who, during her years […]
Features – Last week, we saw the horrific side of American presidents in Presidential Monsters. This week, it’s the crusading, avenging, and perhaps whimsical side of some of the most powerful leaders in the world that we see. In today’s relaxed manner of speaking, what might very well be the coolest thing you’ll see this week is artwork […]
General – Well, not exactly, but Ben Heine’s pencil art is a sight for sore eyes. The Ivory Coast-born Belgian artist has a formidable talent. Given a pencil, he draws sketches that he superimposes on other scenes. He actually calls this branch of his work “Pencil Vs. Camera” and is a wonderful blend of drawing and photography. […]
Features – Have you ever tried creating works of art by melting crayon and quickly blowing so that the melted material will splatter all over a white sheet of paper? The idea is to create something beautiful, albeit maybe totally indecipherable. I hope that there’s at least one who can relate, so I don’t feel too weird. […]
Features – It’s Tolkien Week this week, and it’s Hobbit Day on Saturday, September 22. Isn’t it but fitting to hear about previously undiscovered illustrations for the Lord of the Rings? Fans of Tolkien and his work can thank Dr. Paul Tankard, a senior lecturer and researcher at the University of Otago English Department for dusting the […]
Features – That is not an exaggeration. I’m actually willing to bet my week’s pay check that your jaw will drop (or something like that) once you see what Fay Helfer has done with some Game of Thrones characters. The first time I laid my eyes on her work, all I could think of was “Oh my […]
General – Really. It’s not what you think. And yes, this post is totally safe for work. I think. They say that art is the expression of a person’s deepest emotions and thoughts. Some say that’s complete crap, but in this case – and many others – it does not matter. Brazilian artist Fernando de La Rocque […]
General – Who said old, seemingly useless things cannot be used for art? Probably no one, but the work of artist Vik Muniz is a sight to behold. Muniz makes use of magazine pages – the colored kind – to create works of art. While this may not seem revolutionary, the remarkable thing about Muniz’s work is […]
General – Alice in Wonderland has been part of many a childhood ever since Lewis Carroll wrote it in 1865. Since then, it has been the subject of many adaptations, from television to the cinema to comic books, and even live performances. And as can be expected, it has also influenced many different works of art. Speaking […]
