I bet you thought this post would come with leg warmers and shoulder pads, nope! Just totally gnarly X-Men apparel from Mighty Fine (welovefine.com) from their 80′s Art Fashion Series. These bodacious X-Men babes are inspired by the 1980′s minimalistic illustration style of Patrick Nagel. The day I discovered welovefine.com was the same day I ordered a Storm Nagel-inspired shirt (and Phoenix for a friend’s birthday gift). The icing on the cake was when I received my package in the mail and […]
Megan Lara is an aspiring illustrator and a “huge nerd” who claims to, ” …draw way too much nouveau, but that’s okay because nouveau is awesome.” And I definitely agree, on the awesome part. You’ve probably seen her nouveau work before whether it was Nintendo Nouveau or Marvel Nouveau. I’m slightly obsessed with her work and have had several brain melts trying to decide on which of her many gorgeous designs to get. This weeks Pictures of the […]
I had to bid my black Princess Peach farewell because despite how much I liked her. She (clearly) belonged to Nintendo and I’m trying to avoid any possible legal issues in the future. So let’s all give a warm welcome to my new Girl Gone Geek mascot made by the super talented Anand Duncan! I found Anand on Girls Drawing Girls and her site Hula Bunny. I loved her style particularly a pink mermaid she created, I […]

Excitement for the obvious reason, it’s Harry Freaking Potter; and sadness because it’s all coming to an end. No more book, no more movies. There is Pottermore… but still! Like many of you, I’ve been a Potter fan for over a decade now. I even got my parents […]
I would think twice before stomping on that goomba! These Super Mario Bros. enemies look they belong in an entirely different game, maybe something the Umbrella Corporation created or a resident of Silent Hill. These darker takes on the baddies were made by Mike Puncekar. If you like creepy things (and I know you do), check out these reimagined Pokemon (you probably don’t want to catch these).

While getting my daily sh*ts and giggles at Derptor Who- Questionable Doctor Who Fan Art Tumblr I found this absolutely gorgeous piece made by Carrie-ko on one of their Good Art Friday posts. The colors are captivating and Amy looks so delicate and peaceful floating in space it really illustrates science-fantasy. This also reminds me of the beginning of “The Beast Below” from Season 5. Can you spot the Doctor in the picture?
*Mario voice* “Here we go!” This weeks PotW is also the design for the week-long contest I’m having. To see how you can win visit the CONTEST post. The NMKL (National Mario Kart League) design was created by Rodrigo Ferreira, which combines sports logo design with my all time favorite racing game Mario Kart ( which is also the only racing video game I like). I think the combination is perfect considering the intense competitiveness MK can bring […]
