The Interwebz is a great place for all sorts of crazy things. Often, you’ll find things like purple alien hentai and fucked up shit like that. We see awesome nerdy art pieces every day, but we’re fuckin’ lazy bastards… so here is your weekly fix to fuel your nerdtastic jizzfests!
This Harry Potter/Doctor Who mash-up piece was initially planned to be a replication of the movie poster for The Philosopher’s Stone, but time constraints resulted in changing the plan and only doing the Doctor Potter character. Still pretty fuckin’ cool. You can check out the work-in-progress pictures by Jeffrey Delgado here.
Artist Bryan Lee has incorporated some nerdtastic action in these Norman Rockwell inspired paintings. I guess that solves the Batman/Superman debate.
Petros Afshar created two funky Autobots posters, one of Optimus Prime and one of Bumblebee, which you see above.
Skeletor‘s such a fuckin’ asshole, huh? Barging into the washroom without knocking, and finding He-Man, who appears to be completely plastered, already in there taking a shit. Whoops! Fred Harper did a great job on this, though, artistically speaking. Fuckin’ hilarious.
Viktor Hertz did a whole set of movie posters in a pictogram style, and they’re all really cool; it takes quite a bit of creativity and cleverness to be able to pull these things off. I particularly like what he chose to symbolize Inception.
So, this is interesting. Bashir Sultani makes progress videos of his art, in which he basically rearranges salt in interesting ways. This one has the likeliness of a certain Mr. Sparrow. Check it out!
This poster, from Fro Design, is a neat little collection of “hand prosthetics” from films in which certain characters have distinctive hands. There are quite a few that I can name that aren’t on there, so hopefully the artist decides to make a set of these.
This work is featured in Gallery Nucleus, which is doing a Harry Potter art exhibition from July 9 to August 1 in Alhambra, CA with a ton of awesome Harry Potter work and events. This particular piece is by Megan Hughes, and is a paper cut out of Dumbledore standing at the podium before all of the Hogwarts students in the Great Hall.
This is also included in the aforementioned Harry Potter exhibition, but it’s just too awesome not to share. Jackie Huang put together this paper pop up of Harry and Ron’s first encounter with Aragog and his family of acromantula in the Forbidden Forest. It’s apparently also constructed with lights and music. Fuckin’ insane!
So… Adam Koford has discovered the greatest weakness of a Dementor: KITTEHS. Not the best idea if you’ve got a cat as your Patronus, because it’s only going to bring the Dementor closer to you rather than getting it the fuck away.
Mark Demsteader painted a beautiful series of Emma Watson, which are being featured at the Panter & Hall gallery. Hit the link to check out more of his work from this series.
Artist Jacob Borshard calls this series “Clans of the Great Pony Rebellion”, and has placed the Ronin warriors on the backs of the ponies from My Little Ponies. The series is meant to portray the battle between Clan Blossom and Clan Cotton Candy. I don’t know which is which; don’t ask me!
This piece, called “Link’s Evolution”, depicts the evolution of Link through the development of The Legend of Zelda over the years. Mushir Hoda is aware that not all versions of Link are included on the poster, but it’s still a fun way of conceptualizing how much gaming has changed since the beginning of Zelda.
It’s a really fuckin’ creepy Koopa. Definitely not as entertaining as the video of the Koopas fucking in the Warp Zone… Mike Puncekar‘s got a bunch of these creepy illustrations of Mario Bros. villans.
It’s a baby Batman! He must’ve been a really fuckin’ ugly baby. This explains everything. Credit goes to Sylvie Reuter.
Yes, it’s yet another movie poster redesign. But Dean Walton’s paintings are just too good not to share. Check them out on Mr. Shabba, where you can also purchase the prints!
