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 [...]
Picture of the Week
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 [...]
If you’re like me you are counting down to the last installment of Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows Part 2 with a combination of excitement and sadness. 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 [...]
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 [...]
Arian Noveir created these gorgeous comic book hero splatter paint art series. Once I saw them I immediately fell in love and knew I had to feature them for Picture of the Week! I love the pop art look and how all you need is just enough color and splatter to recognize which hero is featured. Check out the interview with the talented Arian below.
Two of my favorite things at the moment (and in life) are Doctor Who and the video game Portal 2. Well geeks, dreams do come true! Tennant and Wheatley are the perfect mashup and it isn’t just because of their accents. Looking at this piece makes my imagination run wild, I can really see a DW episode taking place in Aperture Science. What a splendid episode that would be! Definitely a two-parter and then… oh there goes my [...]
Everyone loves a mashup! Not one, but two of your favorite things in one brilliant package. The doubly amazing X-Muppets made by the talented Rahzzah is no different. I was buzzing with nostalgia at seeing Jim Henson’s muppets all X-Men’ed out. Rahzzah couldn’t have picked better muppets to represent these mutants, with Animal as Wolverine and Beaker as Cyclops it’s as if they were meant for this mashup! Check out Rahzzah’s Deviant Art for more of his [...]
