John Martz teamed up with Koyama Press to create this comprehensive pixel art Star Trek roster, featuring 235 characters from the series. I think Star Trek fan clubs can use this as an intermediate test for new applicants: “For your second test, you must shoot these darts at the characters in the poster whose names have exactly two vowels in them.”
Mateusz Sypien’s Star Wars Tribute art isn’t filled with Jedis and Ewoks. Nope, it only features three characters, and they operate on the Dark Side of the Force. Well, actually only Darth Vader is officially from the Dark Side, but the other guys aren’t exactly good guys.
After being around for 25 years, it’s no surprise that a lot of things come to mind when a gamer thinks of Mario. Josh Mirman brilliantly captures the hero’s rich history with his drawing, “A Very Wordy Hero”:
What’s Luigi got to do to be remembered?!
These awesome-looking minimal Doctor Who posters feature the first six Doctors from the long running BBC science-fiction program. These minimal posters were designed by Alex Freeman and I have to say that I like them.
What every evil robot baby wants: a Mr. Masters poster, featuring 80 of the vilest Robot Masters that Mega Man has ever faced, mashed-up with Mr. Men characters.
These cute villains were drawn by Steve Napierski.
Steve Thomas‘ video game propaganda posters are a great addition to any game room or office. The latest in his series are the retro-cool Pac-Man, Dragons Lair and Space Invaders prints, but if you dig into the series, you’ll find everyone from Dig Dug to Donkey Kong to Tron in the mix.
You can get your hands on the entire series over at Zazzle.
Have you beaten Mega Man 10 yet? Celebrate that special day (or night, or late night, or early morning) by getting yourself a mint condition poster of the game, featuring painfully retro art. Seller teammastermarc says that the poster was originally distributed at the Nintendo World store and will never be made again.
Check out the new Periodic Table of Sci-Fi Film and Television and let me know if you can find all of your favorite shows and movies. And if you can’t, feel free to complain in the comments below.
Overall, I think you’ll find the table more inclusive of your faves than not.
I”m sure that some of you would rather look at the actual posters of these geeky movies, but for me 25-year old Brandon Schaefer’s style actually calls out to geeks in that the things his art withholds are known only to those who have actually watched the movies they represent.
Nintendo’s wildly popular Smash Bros. franchise is a dimension-shattering, world-colliding crossover in itself, but deviantART member Nakabeast added another delicious layer of nerdity by assigning Dungeons & Dragons alignments to some of the series’ most popular characters, like series newcomer Solid Snake:
If you think about it, Solid Snake can’t really be anything but Chaotic Good.
SoundPads by Sonic Impact are stickable little pads that “convert any thin-walled high-transmission surface into permanent stereo speakers.” That means you can stick these guys on a door, cabinet, table, box, desk, or even a poster- and have insta-speakers.
The site gives you fair warning that once these are stuck, they aren’t coming unstuck.
Irish Artist Finn Magee created this series of works which take common electrical household items and turn them into 2-dimensional posters. The innovative part of his Flat Life series is that the objects remain fully functional in their flat states.
While they may just be flat posters, the pieces still plug into a wall socket.
