Time for your weekly dose of the fantastic fandom based art to hit the web this week with your Nerd Art Dump. Each and every week we pick and choose through the masses of prints and pics on the digital frontier to give you nothing but the best to fill your geek needs. So on with the dump!
ABOVE: Taking a twist on some classic movies with a retro touch. Artists Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo have taken movies like Batman, Robocop, Army of Darkness and Blade Runner and made these amazing prints that will be featured in a show titled Modern Vintage that opens at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles on December 6th.

Sadly this is not promo art for an upcoming sitcom titled How I Met Your Loki, it is just a very well done piece of work by illustrator Andy Park (plus next time they recast the Hulk, I really hope they pick Jason Segel.)
A follow-up to Scott Park‘s Star Cars featuring 66 famous synthetic characters from movies and tv titled Synthespians. Robots. Cyborgs. Holograms. Computers features a plethora of possible robot best friends… Come on admit it, you’ve always wanted a robot best friend. While we can’t give you one, we can tell you the print is available now from Society6.
The Line Is Drawn over at CBR marked the passing of esteemed conceptual designer and illustrator Ralph McQuarrie with a call out for submission putting comic book characters into Star Wars, Phillip Sevy answered impressively enough with the above Darth Joker mash-up with Twi’lek Harley Quinn as an added bonus.
A recent photoshop contest over at Worth1000 asked artists to place superheroes in classic works of art and as usual the submissions were all amazing. If we were pressed to pick the best we’d give the honor to Jbuck43701.
Eisner award-winning illustrator Dave Dorman has been in the business since 1979 with his work gracing trading cards, comic books, book covers and more. Obviously the above battle between Captain America and Darth Vader is not book cover unless Disney is planning to merge the two franchises.
Places and Films is a limited edition print series featuring just that, a collection of the most memorable locations from pop-cultures greatest movies. We’re not calling favorites but Mister Gamma is responsible for this great render of the Ghostbusters Fire Hall HQ and it has become a favorite.
