Ryan Jones’ Star Wars Art: These Aren’t the Drawings You’re Looking For

Ryan Jones’ Star Wars Art: These Aren’t the Drawings You’re Looking For
These graphite pencil illustrations of Star Wars characters in everyday situations totally crack me up. I think it was the one with Darth Vader, titled I Find Your Lack of Hunger Disturbing that pushed me over the edge.

Video Game Characters Escape into the Real World

Video Game Characters Escape into the Real World
Aled Lewis’ has done it again. The geeky mashup artist took a bunch of video game characters in their pure pixelated form and placed them in pictures of the real world. I’m sure that this concept has been explored a hundred times before – I think I might have made a few when I was a kid – but I think it’s the simplicity of Lewis’ chosen backgrounds that makes these pictures super effective.

Jason Brockert’s American Icon Paintings: Geek Icons

Jason Brockert’s American Icon Paintings: Geek Icons
Jason Brockert’s American Icon is a series of still life paintings of his childhood toys. Brockert says he chose his subjects “with a twinge of nostalgia”, and that “these paintings indulge in a mix of whimsy and seriousness.”

Street Fighter + TRON = Nerdgasm

Street Fighter + TRON = Nerdgasm
I know, TRON stuff is so late 2010. But when I saw these awesome Street Fighter x TRON illustrations by Melbourne, Australia graphic artist BossLogic, I had still had to put them up.

VoicePrints Turn Your Words Into Wall Art

VoicePrints Turn Your Words Into Wall Art
It seems like virtually anything can be turned into art. While the spoken word can be art in the form of poetry and song, it’s not often that it’s something that you can physically see. After all, a voice is something heard, not seen.

Classic Mac Icon Prints Need Beige Frames

Classic Mac Icon Prints Need Beige Frames
Designer and iconographer Susan Kare made some of the icons that appeared on the original Macintosh personal computer. Her limited edition icon prints make for a unique gift for the long-time Apple fan.

Star Wars Family Portraits

Star Wars Family Portraits
These Star Wars family portraits turned up over on Steven Quinn’s Flickr page, and they’re truly awesome. I can’t decide which one I like best, but I just love the uncomfortable look on Luke’s face in both of these portraits.

Stormtroopers Invade South Beach

Stormtroopers Invade South Beach
I’m not sure exactly what brought this on, but a bunch of Stormtroopers were recently spotted hanging out at a building in Miami Beach. Why? Why not, I say. Apparently, these wacky hi-jinx are the work of  MR.

I Love the Smell of the Moon in the Morning

I Love the Smell of the Moon in the Morning
I have never really though about what the moon would smell like. I would assume that dirt smells like dirt no matter where you scoop it from. The closest I have ever come to smelling the moon is sitting around with my family after eating chili with lots of beans, and that moon doesn’t smell good.

Space Invaders Calendar: I Want to Shoo-Oo-Oo-Oot… the Whole Day Down

Space Invaders Calendar: I Want to Shoo-Oo-Oo-Oot… the Whole Day Down
This calendar isn’t exactly the most practical thing, since there’s no place to write down your appointments, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing to retro gamers like me. This Space Invader calendar has a single colorful invader for each day in 2011.

R2-D2 Dissected Into Little Itty Bitty Parts

R2-D2 Dissected Into Little Itty Bitty Parts
Adding a bit of Star Wars to an otherwise gear-obsessed day? Sounds perfect! This funky R2-D2 deconstruction poster was created by Kevin Tong and would look great on your wall.

Super Mega Punch-Out!! Cross-Stitch: 80,000 Stitches of Retro Awesomeness

Super Mega Punch-Out!! Cross-Stitch: 80,000 Stitches of Retro Awesomeness
It took crafter Sewsew-a-Gogo almost two years to create this Punch-Out!! art, and it looks like it was well worth the wait. When you first look at this thing from a distance, it doesn’t look like much, but when you realize that it took her over 80,000 cross-stitches to bring this 12″ x 28″ piece to fruition.

Dna 11 Puts Your Genetics on the Wall

Dna 11 Puts Your Genetics on the Wall
It’s not uncommon to see a portrait of a person hanging their wall, right? What about a picture of their DNA? It’s likely that you haven’t encountered anyone with a giant picture containing their genetic code, however, you might in the future.

Geekette Makes Avatar Mosaic From Blu-ray Discs

Geekette Makes Avatar Mosaic From Blu-ray Discs
I really liked the flick Avatar. I ended up seeing it twice, which is very rare for me. It was a cool film and I am really looking forward to the next inevitable installment. One geeky chick, Laura Hadland, has taken about 4,000 Blu-ray discs and used them to create a gigantic mosaic of a Na’Vi from the film.

Destroyed Apple Products: a Beautiful Waste

Destroyed Apple Products: a Beautiful Waste
It seems a bit of a shame to destroy all of this Apple tech in the name of art, but that didn’t stop Michael Tompert and the photographer Paul Fairchild of creating this strange homage to Apple.

The Gruesome Event Leading to Pac-Man

The Gruesome Event Leading to Pac-Man
This wasn’t on the Pac-Man dossier: “How They Died” by Aled “fatheed” Lewis – now up for voting as a T-shirt design on Threadless.
