I’m going to let you in on a little secret, Stargate was one of the first science fiction films I was introduced to as a kid. So it’s a real treat to see something like this.

Featuring Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Poison Ivy to name a few, every hand drawn piece is perfect. [A Godly Servant]
Having studied Communication Design, Kiersten Essenpreis knows an image can spread a message, like famous scenes in film. So Kiersten put together a series terrarium paintings based on popular and iconic films like Wayne’s World, The Thing and Stand by Me each featuring a scene people have come to know. If you’re willing some of the original paintings are still available, but you can always get a print if that’s too much. [XombieDIRGE]
Sesame Street this is not, a living nightmare it might very well be.

She is the mother of dragons and Shilesque did a really great job of making Daenerys Targaryen look as lifelike as Emilia Clarke makes her on the Game of Thrones television series. With its bright shades and colors this is a cover quality piece and with season three in full swing we might as well enjoy her calm before the storm. After that it’s all bloodshed and iron thrones, oh boy! [Xandur]
