Check out this mixed media Darth Vader, made from all kinds of electronics and gadgets. It looks just like the real Vader – if he were made from circuit boards, PlayStation controllers, Game Boys iPods and mice.
He’s got the whole world in his hands, but this watch has the entire solar system on its face. It’s not just a plain old picture of the sun and planets, either. It’s an actual, moving model of planets moving around the sun – and in real-time, too!
If you missed out on Olly Moss’ limited edition 8-bit willow plates, Don Moyer’s Calamityware might be the next best thing. Don creates humorous dinner plates by using the ancient willow pattern to depict modern subjects.
I will admit that it is rather cool to mix two beloved science fiction properties into one. Take this fan made artwork for instance. It has Chewbacca and wicket the Ewok standing on Endor. There is one major thing that’s a little out of place though – they are both wearing Starfleet uniforms.
Artist Rodrigo Costa Alexandrino of the deviantART Corps unleashed this “double fan art” on the hapless walls of the Internet. He calls it Adventure on Titan, and it features Finn & BMO trying to rescue Princess Bubblegum from a wrong-teous Jake.
These days street art has become more popular, and has many more fans than it used to. You can thank Banksy and some other artists for that. And now that it is more accepted, it seems like the installations just keep getting bigger and bigger.
It’s about time someone made this Disney Princesses and Star Wars mash-up happen.
What makes it even more fitting is the fact that Disney actually owns the Star Wars franchise now. If they decided to do a Star Wars Princess edition, then I’m sure they could make it happen, although they’ll probably annoy a huge legion of fans on both sides of the fence in the process.
A lot of people grew up with LEGO. From putting sports cars together to building entire cities, minifigs and big imaginations took center stage during play time.
Tapping into this, artist Dan Shearn has created this fun gallery featuring some of the most iconic characters and movie personalities from the eighties, done up in LEGO minifig style.
What were some of the best moments for you in 2013?
For some, it was the N’Sync reunion at the VMAs and the invention of cronuts, which gained traction so fast and quickly became one of the most popular snack-slash-breakfast foods, with people lining up for hours to get a bite of one.
The relationship might be over. But the memories (or scars) from it will live on. If not in your heart, then in your mind.
I think that can be said in Sebastian Errazuriz’s case, as he drew inspiration from past relationships and ex-lovers for his new series called 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers.
A couple of years ago Steven Lefcourt had a go at making realistic Pokémon. He ended up making creepy creatures, but they’re not nearly as scary and Kaiju-like as Yuuki Morita’s versions. The freelance CG artist used 3D animation and modeling programs to portray the final forms of the original starter Pokémon.
The Eggbot is an art robot that can draw on spherical or ovoid surfaces. Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories originally made the Eggbot to decorate Easter eggs, but because the robot can accommodate any ball or egg-shaped object between 1.25″ to 4.25″ in diameter, you can also use it to decorate Christmas ornaments.
I’m not a big fan of Tarot cards, but these Lord of the Rings tarot cards might just make me interested in a reading. They come from Deviant Artist Sceith Ailm who is working on a Major Arcana for her tarot series.
You may or may not be familiar with the art form called quilling. Quilling is created using strips of paper rolled up or curved to create images. An artist named Alia Syed has taken the art of quilling to a very geeky next level.
UK-based artist Hetain Patel’s first car was a 1988 Ford Fiesta that was handed down from his father. In honor of his first set of wheels, this collaboration with his father and brother turns a similar vehicle into a Transformer-like robot that is far more than meets the eye.
