The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like gay Vulcan pr0nz. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.

First off this week is some paper art by Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, who call themselves Zim and Zou. This collection, called Back to Basics, consists of models of retro electronics that are hand made with sustainable paper. Every scrap is saved for potential later use. It’s pretty fuckin’ insane. Check out the site for more pictures, and a video detailing their process.

More after the juuuuuuuump!

The Angry Birds are angry and they want cake! Anya Richardson made this pretty fuckin’ awesome Angry Birds inspired cake. The attention to detail there is pretty impressive.

Sticking to the edible art theme, Charm City Cakes made a Hogwarts cake! I wouldn’t even want to eat that thing; it looks fuckin’ amazing.

Skottie Young, who is one of Marvel’s artists, is best known for his work in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He posted this piece on his Twitter, stating that it’s a commissioned watercolor that he’d done. It’s a really neat bit of art, conceptualizing Spiderman with some daddy long legs-esque features alongside a Tim Burton kind of feel.

Another piece of art by Skottie Young. Of course this shit is going to go down the moment you decide to go ice fishing on Hoth.

From the same dude who brought us the medieval Star Wars figures, we now have Victorian-style figures of the Justice League. The Gaslight Justice League was inspired by the comic Gotham by Gaslight by Mike Mignola and Brian Augustyn. Check ’em all out here.

This poster was created by Otis Frampton, who based it on Sillof’s (the same dude with the action figures just above this poster) samurai Star Wars figures.

From Frampton’s DeviantART page for this poster:

A few months ago I approached him with the offer of creating a movie poster-style image based on one of his custom Star Wars figure sets and he approved. I chose the Samurai Wars set and this image is the result.

DeviantART artist, PandaFace, has started a Super Villain Rehab… and this is the first piece. It turns out that puppies are Doctor Doom‘s greatest weakness!

From the DeviantART page:

Me feeling is if the Super-Heroes of the world wouldn’t keep shooting the Super-Villains of the world into space, or putting them in asylums, or punching them repeatedly in the eyeballs, they might not be so mad all the time.

My suggestion: Super Villain Rehab. Send those guys to a place where they can receive the love and attention they didn’t receive as children.

It’s the Lantern Corps, Muppet-style! Work by Abby Memerson.

A Bat-Man Mystery, by J. E. Larson, takes on the essence of Nosferatu in this fun little piece.

This is just fuckin’ amazing. Brittney Lee made this gorgeous paper cut out Harry Potter piece, detailing the Trio and Patronus!Prongs fending off a shitload of Dementors. Just… wow.

Another Harry Potter bit! For his senior year portfolio, Patrick Sullivan created potential covers for each of the Harry Potter movies, imagining what they’d look like if the movies were to be released in the Criterion Collection. They’re actually pretty cool — follow the link to his page to check out the box art for the other movies.

It’s Boba Fett… without a helmet! Of course, his face is still in shadow but it’s definitely an interesting idea and some great art by Carlos NCT.

Dude. This blew my mind. Sushi Chef Japan created a bunch of Star Wars characters using vegetables and their site actually includes tutorials as well as pictures of more of their awesome creations. Wooooow.

Who the hell ever thought of doing a Star Wars and Donkey Kong mashup? Well, it looks like Vincent Bocognani did.

Liam Brazier is an illustrator and animator, and has a bunch of nerdy works on his webpage, including Star Wars pieces in the same vector style. This Superman bit is pretty crazy.

Mark at Sublevel Studios created a bunch of logo designs based on 3 of the flight squadrons in The Empire Strikes Back: Imperial Bomber Squadron, Wampa Stompa’s Hoth Squadron, and Bespin Wing Guard. There are a bunch of nerdy possibilities with these things!
