pj-mcquade-christmas-card-extravangaza-2016

Artist Pj McQuaade is at it again with 12 new holiday cards featuring themes ranging from Harry Potter to Point Break. I mean, hey—when someone sends you a Point Break-themed Christmas card, you can’t just chuckle and throw that in the trash. You frame that sh*t.

Check out the complete lineup below. [click to continue…]

I don’t know what’s happening over there with the Power Rangers movie, but the designers on the film are clearly not familiar with the word “restraint”.

Thanks to IGN we have our first look at Alpha 5 concept art and, yeah…are your eyes burning too? I’m a little scared to find out what they did to Bryan Cranston’s Zordon.

A Japanese artist known on Twitter as @kirikawa_juu created this wonderful anime-style piece dubbed “Hero, Change” that depicts Harry Potter “passing the baton” to Newt Scamander. The artwork was shared online and, before long, J.K. Rowling herself took note. She got kind of emotional about it. [click to continue…]

Crispin Young Wilson describes herself as a “part time artist, full-time computer healer”. Personally, I think she should add “magician” to her resume.

See, Crispin paints invisible murals. Really, really, really cool ones based on the night sky.

Over the weekend, Crispin painted a bedroom for her friend’s son. Apparently, the kid had a hard time adjusting to his new room, so his dad hoped the mural would make him feel more comfortable. Of course, when he first went into the room, he had no idea there was a mural.

Then his dad turned off the lights.

Crispin recounted the story (which is adorable) on Twitter so I went and tucked her tweets about it below. [click to continue…]

Artist Betawi Kebayoran has given Captain America, Thor And Black Panther some badass armor redesigns. They have an anime/fantasy vibe, and he cites the equally awesome work of Dean Holdeen as one of his inspirations. Check out the rest of the lineup below. [click to continue…]

This piece dubbed “The Raid” by Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley will be on display as part of the Sci-Scapes art show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. It opened on November 18 and will run through December 4.

It would be great if you could go and see it in person (along with the rest of the fantastic art the show), but wasting hours at your desk trying to suss out all of the references is almost as good. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

If Tim Burton were to ask me where he could get some awesome custom furniture, I would say “check out Rebecca DeGroot“.

Or maybe this guy.

She tells Make:

“I don’t like spiders, but I’m intrigued by the way they move and I’m constantly analyzing the mechanics of creatures.”

Indeed, much of her extraordinary work appears to be inspired by insects, and I’m just blown away by the forms she’s able to create. Check out more of her work below. [click to continue…]

Artist Han Seok-bum recently blended Overwatch and Pokemon characters into one illustrated mishmash that’s both adorable and and eye-catching. His instincts on which characters to combine was spot on too. Yep, I think gruff ol’ Blastoise makes an excellent Soldier 76. Check out more characters below. [click to continue…]

Artist and illustrator Chet Phillips creates fun matchbox art that blends vintage style with mytical beasts and movie monsters. My favorite has to be the Cthulhu safety matches, but there are plenty more designs where that came from (see below). You can also purchase prints in his Etsy store and t-shirts on TeePublic.

Olly Moss has made a name for himself with his artwork, most notably his poster designs. If you are unfamiliar, you must go check them out immediately, then come back, because you’ll want to see his take on the Harry Potter series. It’s part of an official collaboration with Pottermore that included an eBook cover redesign last year.

Moss has knocked out seven cracking posters in his famous minimalist style, one for each book (for those wondering, he uses the original British title for the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone). Check out the full series below. [click to continue…]
