Nerd Art Stock Pile: Superhero Situation Room, Pixar Wars, Wolverin Vs. T-Rex, Greedo Shoots First, 80’s Villain Cocktail Party and MORE
Nerd Art Stock Pile? There’s a lot of nerd art on the net. Mostly it’s fan-fiction tentacle Pr0n, but hey we’re not complaining. We see so much neato art work on a daily basis, but for whatever reason they don’t make it to the front page of Nerd Bastards. We’re either lazy, or a piece of stand alone artwork isn’t enough to warrant a full post. Mostly we’re lazy. But, who are we to rob you of this net glory? We’re bastards but we’re not assholes. So here’s a roundup of the latest Nerd Art; intended for eye masturbation purposes.
First up, a Photoshopped (hey good Photoshop qualifies as art) look at the superhero identities of the men and women in the Situation Room during the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.
Next up, is artist Mister Hipp‘s illustration that mix’s up Indian Jone with with the Marvel Universe. It’s called Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Cosmic Cube. George Lucas should be taking notes.
Here’s an neato picture that re-imagines Star Wars in the imaginative world of Pixar. The image is fittingly called ‘Pixar Wars’. It was created by Andrew Chesworth, who clearly dreamed up something the rest of never new we wanted. George Lucas should be taking notes.
UK designer Samuel Perrett has created these awesome superhero minimalist movie posters featuring this summer’s biggest blockbusters using personalized type and symbolism.
If doing so much with so little is your thing, then you should check out Jeremie Brunet‘s super hero prints. He breaks down character designs to big shapes, colors and words and makes some magic happen in his minimalist print representations. Personally, If you have to put the name on the design for it to be recognizable, you’re not doing it right.
Obligatory SIMPSONS DID IT! the Simpsons already did this in “22 Short Films About Springfield”
Regardless, both The Simpson and Pulp Fiction have stood the test of time (maybe not so much for The Simpsons). Blending the two will always amuse.
Wolverine Vs. T-Rex, who ya got? Keep in mind Wolverine is the best he is at what he does and what he does isn’t very nice. deviantArt member nJoo depicts exactly how I imagine it would go down.
Here’s some fun art of all your favorite villains of the 80s having a cocktail party by Ben Balisteri. Can you name all of the baddies in attendance?
Artist Hillary White takes the old school cartoons, puppets, and movies you’ve watched as children and makes them grow up with you. It may seem dark, but her pieces call out to the cynical darkside in all of us. Whether it’s shooting that annoying Tootise Pop owl or the muppets dissecting Kermit’s dead corpse, these pieces stirs the nostalgia of our youth back, and you can’t ignore the joy of that in her well crafted art work.
As adults our greatest fear is wondering if our current or potential offspring will turn out to be nerds just like us. Can you imagine how horrible it would be if they grew up to be some athlete with conservative views? Terrible, I know. We’d love em’ all the same, but goddamn it, they just have to be nerds. We gotta get em’ while their young! Childrens books are the answer, but alas nerdy titles are too far in between. George Lucas should be taking notes on artist James Hance with his piece titled “Where The Star Wars Wild Things Are”.
