Pen and Ink Pop Culture

Published by under Images

Artist Rik Reimert has a medium of choice, pen and ink, and with a series of mostly straight lines, has drawn and shaded a rather fantastic series showcasing some of pop cultures biggest acting icons.

Naturally we all recognize the Dinklagetron 3000 above, but the series spans De Niro, Spacey, Sutherland (the Donald version) and many more. It’s amazing what you can get done with pen and ink alone, and it’s a series worth checking out below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Old School Mystique

Published by under Comics,Cosplay,Images

mystiqe_by_hidory-d53od9g

The Mystique we know and love nowadays is Jennifer Lawrence wearing nothing but blue bodypaint and scale flakes, but it wasn’t always that way. Once upon a time, Mystique actually wore clothes, as evidenced by this bit of flashback cosplay from Hidory.

This is how I remember her in the X-Men animated series days, complete with belt of skulls and weird head jewel. Hidory does a great job here, and her photographer makes her look about seven feet tall, which amplifies the intimidation effect. Check out more shots from the series below: Continue Reading »

Father Builds Battlemech Treehouse

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

battlemech

When I was a kid, practically all the trees in my yard were pine, and past that, building codes didn’t allow for anyone to build actual treehouses in our neighborhood. So instead, my dad built me a wooden climbing castle in our basement, that was a rough collection of wood beams and blanks with little structure or form.

And it was awesome. As a kid, your imagination can fill in the gaps, and I loved my weird wooden palace the way these kids probably love their life-size mechwarrior. Seriously, that’s one way to get around a treehouse ban, I suppose.

Rumor has it this was actually built by a NASA engineer for his kids, which is about the only thing that makes sense. Does it move? I hope it moves.

Cosplay of the Day: MeishaMock’s Mononoke

When I was a kid, Princess Mononoke was my first anime crush, and she didn’t need giant gozangas to get my attention, like so many other characters in the genre. She was capable, cool and fierce, and I’m a sucker for any good cosplay I see of her.

One such example would be MeishaMock’s version, which is just about as good as you can get, costume-wise. If you browse her page, she’s also a great Nidalee from League of Legends and Daenerys Targaryen as well. Continue Reading »

Middle-Aged Harry Potter Book Covers

Published by under Books,Images

You’ve probably heard by now that JK Rowling broke the internet when she released a 1,000 word story that reunited with a 34 year old Harry. She didn’t say much, but the internet took that to be a sign that more adult Potter books are surely on the horizon, and they’re going nuts as a result.

One artist, via SomeECards, decided to figure out what exactly Potter might be up to a few years after 34, provided JK Rowling sticks with the character that long. The results are…depressing. And also hilarious. Check them out below. Continue Reading »

Tumblr Invents Pokemon Shaming

Published by under Images,Video Games

pokeshaming

The weird, wide world of Tumblr has invented a new use of fan art, Pokemon shaming. By now you’ve probably seen at least one picture of a dog or toddler wearing a sign saying they ate something they shouldn’t or crapped somewhere they shouldn’t.

Now, the artists of Tumblr have descended to bring the concept to Pokemon, and the growing series has a number of creatures being shamed for doing something they shouldn’t with their elemental powers. Mewtwo’s is particularly bad, but you can check out all the other ones below. Continue Reading »

More Great Rivalries and Pairings From Scott C

Published by under Images

Scott-C-Revenge-of-the-Great-Showdowns-19

You may remember Scott C‘s rather fantastic Great Showdowns series from a few months back. Well, it turns out that he’s done a bunch more in a series called “Revenge of the Great Showdowns” for another upcoming gallery show.

Scott pulls from every corner of pop culture to get ideas for these pieces, and if there’s every been two characters in conflict in a movie, game, show or book, he’s all over it. I couldn’t even fit all the new ones below, but here are some of the best: Continue Reading »

Some Rather Fantastic Coffee Cup Art

Published by under Comics,Images

While this may not be quite as impressive as literally making art out of coffee itself, which some barristas are internet-famous for, I do rather like Jimmy T’s series of coffee cup art, which actually allows him to use more colors than white and brown.

It’s most superhero-based, so we see everyone from the Avengers to X-Men to Batman in these cups. Other characters stop by for a quick appearance like Mega Man and Darth Vader, and you can check the rest below: Continue Reading »

’90s Rock

Published by under Images

rock

I think this was originally supposed to just be a picture/headline pun, but it most served to remind me that there wasn’t much of anything the awful, awful fashion of the ’90s couldn’t make worse. Even someone as empirically badass as The Rock.

I know that every decade things look cool, then 10 years later everyone is like “what the f*** was I thinking?” but I feel like its always twenty times worse with the 90s. The 80s was so tacky it was funny, but the 90s are just cringe-inducing, as evidenced by The Rock’s fanny pack here.

All Hail Turtle Kong

Published by under Images,Television

turtle kong

Between Godzilla and Pacific Rim, we’re on a mini giant monster kick at the movies the last few years, so what if Michael Bay’s upcoming Ninja Turtle reboot went down that path instead? Artist James Callahan has a vision of the horror that might reveal itself, in the form of a massive four-headed turtle using construction equipment and building pieces as their signature weapons. Naturally, April is their captured lady, but I’m sure she can placate them with pizza.

Callahan has some pretty bizarre stuff on his site, this being probably the least weird of all. Check it out here.

Some Clean, Cute Portal GIFs

Published by under Images,Video Games

David Urbinati is a great animator who has a talent for the minimalist. He’s done a series of rather amazing Portal GIFs in his signature style, one of which you can see above which Chell bounding down a testing room somewhere. I love how Portal was one of the first games to at least attempt to explain how an unarmored character could survive falls from nearly infinite heights.

Anyway, there are more where these came from, and you can check them out on David’s site here.
