It’s no secret that we’re fans of artist Joey Spiotto and his Little Golden Book-style covers, so we’re super pumped about his Kickstarter project for Storytime – A Little Art Book.

Storytime is a full-color 132-page book that features all of Spiotto’s Little Golden Book-inspired art to date. Since the book is already hitting stretch goals, it’s been upgraded to an 8.5 x 11 hardcover with gold foil and a dust jacket. This is prime coffee table art book material and you can get your own for only $25.

You can also get an exclusive Kickstarter-only Stranger Things print, which is probably the best thing you’ll see today. Check it out below. [click to continue…]

This photo of lighting taken at the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona and posted to the U.S. Department Of The Interior Facebook page looks a bit like a T-Rex—or Godzilla. It’s Mother Nature at her deadliest.

I’m picturing a Jurassic Park / Twister sequel with the populace being terrorized by lightning dinosaurs. I would watch the hell out of that.

harley custom

In honor of Cap’s 75th anniversary, Harley-Davidson partnered with Marvel on this gorgeous custom Captain America Street Glide Special. It’s part of a larger project across Australia and New Zealand featuring customs based on Marvel heroes like Thor, Iron-Man, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, and more. Even Spider-Gwen got her own custom and Groot has a Street Glide special made just for him. There are 27 custom Marvel motorcycles in all.

You can’t buy these beauties, but residents of Australia and New Zealand can enter to win one. I’m happy just looking. Check out more bikes below. [click to continue…]

Rejoice Supernatural fans! Now you can de-stress or pass the time in con lines with this official Supernatural coloring book for adults. Sam, Dean, Cas, Crowley, bad motel rooms, anti-possession symbols—it’s all here for you to complete as you see fit.

I have this sudden desire to put Crowley in deep, rich purple and maybe I’ll give Cas a black trenchcoat. I hope they have lots of different Padahair styles, and I’ll be sure to stock up on green for Jensen’s eyes. Let’s take a peek inside shall we? [click to continue…]

You like Pokémon, don’t you? Of course you do. Ever since the Glorious Edict was handed down from the Powers That Be, all peoples upon this planet must adore Pokémon and Pokémon-related activities… or else there will be a reckoning.

And so, in the sanctity of this blessed place and with the love of the Powers That Be, we must give thanks for these posters by Janice Rosenthal. Janice has given us a true gift, presenting locations from the Kanto region (that’s the region seen in the 1st Generation Pokémon games) in the style of National Park Services posters. And they are beautiful. Praise be to Janice Rosenthal! Praise be to the Powers That Be, and to the Glorious Edict! Check out the entire series below. [click to continue…]

I think it’s safe to say that most people (myself included) are excited about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But the question on everyone’s lips is “What does Kylo Ren think?”. Well, Auralnauts have answered that question with the following parody perfection. [click to continue…]

Nearly two years ago we featured a snippet of an animated Firefly project by artist Stephen Byrne.

I had almost forgotten about it, until Byrne posted the following teaser trailer… [click to continue…]

Artist Alex Cho is a visual development artist at Sony Pictures Animation, so when he puts his spin on the likes of Game of Thrones and Stranger Things you know it will be something special.

He’s also a fan of Harry Potter and Zootopia, among other things. It’s easy to fall into his art and get caught up. I suggest you try it starting with the examples below. [click to continue…]

Wizard vs. Jedi—this isn’t the first time someone has imagined such a glorious battle. However, the GIF above provides another tantalizing taste. You can check out the full video from Madcap Brothers below (NSFW). [click to continue…]

Y’know the Speeder Bikes from Return of the Jedi? Well, the team at Vintage Works gone and built one. More or less.

A huge amount of care and attention to detail went into making this thing. For example, the Speeder Bike motorcycle is fitted with a sound system to emulate its distinctive sounds from the film. It’s steered using the dual handlebars, which also control the flaps on the front.

This one-of-a-kind passion project is a real sight to behold. Though we’re not entirely convinced it’d be street legal. Check out photos, and the teaser video below. [click to continue…]
