Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Based on the famous surreal painting “The Son of Man” by René Magritte this parody piece by Ben6835 is a little more mutant and pizza than human and apple faced. [Neatorama]
Hit the jump for “The Dude”, Snake Plissken and the Gotham gals wet n’ wild show!
You know the Dude, I know the Dude and Daniel Nash seems to really know the Dude, so much so that he put together this awesome The Big Lebowski movie poster for everyone to enjoy. [Fuck Yeah, Movie Posters!]
Artist Jeff Victor has done this a few times before, doing cartoon evolutions of famous Hollywood actors like Johnny Depp, Natalie Portman and Tom Hanks, but this one for Charlize Theron is one of the coolest. Picking out key moments from her career Victor has put together Charlize’s “timeline of sexy”, a phrase we just made up and have already trademarked. [Geek Tyrant]
You would think with over twenty-five years in the gaming industry Mario would be a little shorter, no so according to artist Mike Meth, he’s just “peachy”. This real life Mario is much more fit then his years would let on, it has to be something in what he eats. Maybe the green mushrooms are a sign of long life? [Gamefreaks]
Thank you, just thank you to whoever created this wonderful image of joy. An entire trilogy of rage summed up in one beautiful scene of trooper on Gungan violence, Jar Jar Binks getting decked straight into Star Wars Episode Seven. Whoever made this, we salute you.
Just because they’re three of the biggest female criminals in Gotham doesn’t mean Harley Quinn, Selina Kyle and Dr. Pamela Isley don’t know how to enjoy the sun and surf. An unused cover to Gotham City Sirens by Guillem March shows off the ladies funner side. [XombieDIRGE]
For the people that have never watched it Escape from New York is a hidden gem of a movie, the kind of film you keep in stock for a special occasion or your first born child to watch on their fifth birthday. Giannis Milonogiannis put together this wicked one-sheet tribute to the John Carpenter and former Special Forces operator/war hero turned criminal Snake Plissken. [Comics Alliance]
Something tells me this won’t end well. One hero, protected by a suit of metal armour and the other, a villain capable of manipulating said metal to his will. This one-sided battle by Brent McKee shows us that all the money and tech in the would can’t buy you power, it just buys you a really nice tin can to open up. [Geek Tyrant]
Nothing beats the original masked psychopaths, you don’t need elaborate traps and constant screaming teenagers. All you need is a sharp, pointy knife, the ability to walk softly and not talk to your victims and an iconic mask to bring fear to your enemies. After searching high and low we couldn’t find out who made this, if you know please send us a message. [Knucklesrex]
Paul Shipper beautifully sums up the entire Back to the Future trilogy in one really cool variant poster. Part of the “Gizmos and Gadgets” art show at the Bottleneck Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. There is a regular version of this minus the writing for the flux capacitor, but really who doesn’t want to see the beginning plans for the greatest time traveling device every? If you don’t like this then go back to your police box, chicken. [XombieDIRGE]
