Game of Thrones Playing Cards: Poker is Coming

Game of Thrones Playing Cards: Poker is Coming
Game of Thrones is one of my favorite shows on TV in years, but I’ve been trying to find ways to pass the time while waiting for the return of the show on March 31. I’m a gambler too, so I think a few hands of poker could be a good time-killer until the return of the Starks, Lannisters, Targaryens, Baratheons, and all of the other denizens of Westeros in about a month and a half.

Senseless Drawing Bot 2: Even More Senseless Than Before

Senseless Drawing Bot 2: Even More Senseless Than Before
Graffiti can be cool, at least when its done with artful purpose. With robots all over the place, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make a robot that drew graffiti. The original Senseless Drawing Bot was great, but this one is even better.

The Empire Strikes Small: Mini AT-ST Popsicle Stick Models

The Empire Strikes Small: Mini AT-ST Popsicle Stick Models
We would all love to have full sized AT-ST models guarding our front yards (or at least for our cats), but sadly that is beyond reach for most of us. At least you can make some mini AT-ST models from popsicle sticks.

The Ugly Truth: It Only Takes Glass to Make People Ugly

The Ugly Truth: It Only Takes Glass to Make People Ugly
Beauty isn’t only skin deep. Sometimes, the most beautiful people on the outside happen to be the nastiest, ugliest people on the inside. Similarly, plain Janes and boring Johns might not look like much physically, but they can have the purest, kindest hearts of gold.

Body Language as an Art Form

Body Language as an Art Form
You can tell a lot about a person’s mood or disposition by observing his or her body language. For example, when a person’s pissed off or annoyed at you, then their arms are most likely crossed over their chest.

Iron Bounty Hunter: Is He Tony Fett or Boba Stark?

Iron Bounty Hunter: Is He Tony Fett or Boba Stark?
This Iron Man/Boba Fett sculpture is awesome. Matthew J. Hideousboi painted after seeing a Boba Fett helmet painted as Iron Man for the As You Wish Helmet Project, a charity event that raised funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, by getting artists to make their own custom Boba Fett and Clone Trooper helmets.

Mario and Luigi as Ghostbusters: Who Ya Gonna Call?

Mario and Luigi as Ghostbusters: Who Ya Gonna Call?
I think we finally have a worthy idea for the next Ghostbusters film, based on this work of fine geek art. Imagine Mario and Luigi Ghostbusting and saving Peach from Boo in the haunted castle.

No Baskets Were Harmed in the Weaving of This Awesome Wicker-Covered Car

No Baskets Were Harmed in the Weaving of This Awesome Wicker-Covered Car
Weaving is both an art and a learned skill. Given the fact that I cannot weave anything decent to save my life, I have utmost respect for weavers who know their craft, like Nigerian artisan Ojo Obaniyi from Ibadan.

Darth Vader Riding a Tauntaun, That is All.

Darth Vader Riding a Tauntaun, That is All.
Need some classy geek art to decorate your place with? Try this awesome Darth Vader riding a Tauntaun painting. It’s like the Dark Lord is in the Imperial cavalry, mounted on his noble Tauntaun steed. In the desert.

Nikolai Aldunin’s Teeny Tiny Sculptures are So Small They Fit Inside the Eye of a Needle

Nikolai Aldunin’s Teeny Tiny Sculptures are So Small They Fit Inside the Eye of a Needle
For a moment there, I wasn’t sure if these sculptures were real, however, they are. These incredibly tiny sculptures were created by an artist using a microscope. They are incredibly detailed for art of this scale, and I imagine need to be quite careful when you’re around it, otherwise it could be crushed or simply blown away.

Delivery for Mr. Assange

Delivery for Mr. Assange
Art is rather like beauty – in that it’s always in the eye of the beholder. One of the strangest art projects I’ve heard of in a while has turned up in the form of a cardboard box packed with a hidden camera.

Cloud Machine: Make Your Own Weather

Cloud Machine: Make Your Own Weather
There’s something magical about being able to control the weather, especially if there’s a way to improve it. Personally, I’d like to have some sort of device in my backyard so I can make sure that it won’t rain when I barbecue in the summer.

Seaweed Chewbacca: Under the Kashyyyk Sea

Seaweed Chewbacca: Under the Kashyyyk Sea
There’s a little known species of Wookiee that is often seen walking out of the ocean, known as Seaweed Wookiees. Okay, that’s a lie, but it would be cool to have ocean dwelling Wookiees that attacked folks on land.

Flatsun: 60,000 LEDs Simulate the Sun

Flatsun: 60,000 LEDs Simulate the Sun
I didn’t think that anything could accurately emulate theSsun, but that didn’t stop Rafael Lozano-Hemmer from trying, as he used 60,000 LEDs to recreate some solar magic – albeit without the intense light and heat of the actual Sun.

Fragment: Dubai’s Unidentified Flying Light Fixture

Fragment: Dubai’s Unidentified Flying Light Fixture
Nope, this isn’t a UFO, it’s a functional modern art installation that was installed in the atrium of the Level Shoe District, a 96,000 sq. ft. footwear emporium, situated within the Dubai Mall. Of course, something this extravagant would only be in a shoe store in Dubai.

Chibi Heroes: Cutie Ukiyo-e

Chibi Heroes: Cutie Ukiyo-e
Jed Henry lit the Internet on fire with his ukiyo-e-style art. Then he worked with woodblock artist David Bull to turn those artworks into actual ukiyo-e prints, which are now under the brand Ukiyoe Heroes. Now Jed and Dave have started a sillier offshoot called Chibi Heroes.
