Superheroes and Villains CLIMB a Wall

Superheroes and Villains CLIMB a Wall
If there’s one thing that many superheroes and villains seem to have in common is that they inevitably find themselves rappelling scaling up the side of a building for one reason or another. Artist Nicholas Hyde (aka “Harshness“) made note of this unusual behavioral pattern, and has documented it for us with this cool series of illustrations.

Polygon Heroes: Hulk Smash(ed)!

Polygon Heroes: Hulk Smash(ed)!
Superhero art rarely gets old, and these Polygon Heroes by New Zealand artist James Reid really hit the spot thanks to the fact that you can easily recognize the heroes right away, despite being broken down into primitive shapes.

Medieval Batman Armor Makes Batman a True Dark Knight

Medieval Batman Armor Makes Batman a True Dark Knight
They call Batman The Dark Knight because he acts like a knight, helping the people of Gotham in need, despite his somewhat barbaric tactics. His cause is right and just, like a Knight on a quest.

The Ministry of Silly Walking Dead: Monty Python Meets Zombies

The Ministry of Silly Walking Dead: Monty Python Meets Zombies
I’ve always been a fan of Monty Python, but more recently, I’m an even bigger fan of The Walking Dead. As a matter of fact, the new episode is starting right now, and I have to get to the DVR to un-pause and start watching it as soon as I’m done writing this.

Comicalu: A Neat Collection of Manga-Inspired Products

Comicalu: A Neat Collection of Manga-Inspired Products
In my native language, “manga” (pronounced mang-ga) translates to “mango.” So whenever I’d hear someone say that they loved reading manga, I’d be puzzled because, really, who reads fruit? I finally figured out what manga was when I was in high school after much embarrassment and after living in sheer ignorance for so long.

Darth Vader with Parasol: Keeping the Dark Side in the Shade

Darth Vader with Parasol: Keeping the Dark Side in the Shade
Ever thought that a Dark Lord of the Sith would use a parasol to keep out of the sun? I suppose that the Dark Side prefers to stay in the shade, right? One artist decided to re-imagine a famous painting by Monet, featuring Darth Vader prominently using his umbrella.

3Tone Halftone Art: Painting with Drill Bits

3Tone Halftone Art: Painting with Drill Bits
When it comes down to it, pretty much every image you look at is made up of dots – whether it’s a digital image made of tiny pixels, the fine grain in film stock, or the halftone patterns you see in traditional printed media.

Mario and Link Minimalist Art Focuses on Their Heroic Torsos

Mario and Link Minimalist Art Focuses on Their Heroic Torsos
These pieces of minimalist Mario and Link Art are very unique – they depict our favorite Nintendos in a startling fashion by focusing on their torsos. These two characters surely have the most heroic midsections of them all, but I think that Mario’s pot belly may have been treated with a bit of airbrushing in that photo.

C-3PO Descending a Staircase and Other Classic Paintings Merged with Sci-Fi

C-3PO Descending a Staircase and Other Classic Paintings Merged with Sci-Fi
The art director of Tor Books, Irene Gallo, posted a collection of sci-fi/fantasy illustrations that reference famous paintings. Duchamp’s Nude Descending a Staircase? I think not. Have a look at C-3PO Descending a Staircase from John Mattos.

Illuminated Micro Toilets Make a Loud Statement About Peeing in Public

Illuminated Micro Toilets Make a Loud Statement About Peeing in Public
One reason why some alleys or street corners stink so badly is because some people pee on them. (Okay, so dogs also pee anywhere they want to, but humans should know better.) Aside from the stink, it’s also very unsightly.

JMC Soundboard: Yes, It’s a Speaker

JMC Soundboard: Yes, It’s a Speaker
These sculptural speakers were designed and created by master guitar-builder Jeanmichel Capt, and their overall look barely resembles any speakers that I’ve seen. The JMC Soundboard blur the line between speakers and art, and are designed to have perfect uniformity of sound.

Astronomical: The Solar System in Easy-to-Read Book Form

Astronomical: The Solar System in Easy-to-Read Book Form
Here’s an encyclopedia that even a baby can finish in just one sitting. Just skip to the pages where the dots are, because the rest of it is black. The set isn’t meant for reading though – Astronomical is a scale model of our beloved solar system in the form of twelve 500-page books.

Old Cabinet Cards Turned into Geek Icons

Old Cabinet Cards Turned into Geek Icons
Old cabinet cards are pretty cool. These early photographs are mementos from another time that tell the stories of forgotten lives, leaving but an image for history to remember them by and fill in the blanks.

Transparent Stained Glass Prints Hang in the Church of Geek

Transparent Stained Glass Prints Hang in the Church of Geek
You don’t have to be religious at all to enjoy these fantasy prints designed to look like stained glass windows. Created by Marissa Garner of Fay Productions, they incorporate a variety of entertaining subjects from Batman to My Little Pony.

Paper Vader Jesus: Pray to the Dark Side of the Force

Paper Vader Jesus: Pray to the Dark Side of the Force
I never thought about making a papercraft art piece featuring Darth Vader myself, but other people certainly have. In this case, one artist posed Darth Vader like he’s Jesus Christ himself – a bit of a contradiction with Vader’s Dark Sided ways.

Glitchr Turns Website Bugs into Art

Glitchr Turns Website Bugs into Art
To be honest, I no longer use Facebook enough to see any bugs. I basically check in and check out, within 10 or 15 minutes or so each time and never leave an open tab. That being said, just like any website, Facebook has got some bugs.
