When Superheroes Go Noir

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 […]

If the Elements in the Periodic Table Were Human…

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 […]

These Are the American Presidents Kicking Butt

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 […]

Ben Heine’s Pencil Art Replaces Reality

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. […]

Hua Tunan’s Splatter Art Is the Best You’ll See This Week

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. […]

Tolkien Week and Previously Undiscovered Lord of the Rings Illustrations

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 […]

The Most Breathtaking Game of Thrones Art You’ll See This Week

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 […]

Blow Job Art: It’s Not What You Think [SFW]

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 […]

Torn Magazine Pages Turned to Art by Vik Muniz

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 […]

Salvador Dali Does Alice in Wonderland

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 […]
