ABOVE: It was only a matter or time before Doctor Who got the Tim Burton art-style treatment. Above you can see a few examples depicting Doctors that look a little more maniacal and perhaps a little less healthy. All courtesy of MichaelThePure.
Christmas is fast approaching and even Jabba and Yoda are getting into the spirit in the above Christmas cards. Wait… do they even have Christmas in a galaxy far, far away? I thought they’d replaced it with some Wookie holiday? Damn you, Star Wars Christmas Special, you lied to me. By Patrick McQuade.
A man and his girlfriend were “urban exploring” around Belgium when they found an abandoned hospital building with a message “There’s beauty in destruction.” After entering they stumbled upon quite a few unique Batman graffiti’s allegedly tagged by the same artist. “Pete” or “Peteone” [GeekTyrant]
Above – an example of what happens when an a graphic arts geek expresses himself through popular geek architecture. Like what you see? He’s selling the prints if you want one. By Federico Babina.
And because Star Wars is so iconic that there are images that stick with you for a lifetime, this montage of the most memorable – “Everything From Star Wars I Can Draw From Memory” by John Hendrix
Yet another example of Disney Princesses getting ported to the Star Wars world. This time, it’s the famous Sleeping Beauty that gets the treatment. And while I’m pretty sure that Boba Fett won’t be getting paid for this one, she’ll look a damn sight better on Jabba’s wall than crusty old Han. By Ralph Sevelius.
A collection of some of the most iconic characters in the movies today and yesterday. Put together by artist Massimo Carnevale, you can head over to his site to see a bunch more, all equally awesome.
This is what happens when Mario ignores the anti-drug PSAs and goes on a mushroom-munching rampage. Coincidentally, it also happens to heavily resemble what Mario looked like for me during my heavy drinking years… Trippy Super Mario art by James Tranzen.
Even more cool artwork, this one’s an awesome collection of movie-inspired pop art for the upcoming Gallery 1988 art show, Crazy for Cult 7. Yes, we have full-on geek art shows now. The world is a better place. [/Film]
