procrastination in red

Apparently, imgur user SeeMyAmbitionsFadeOut created this series of Star Wars paintings when he/she should have been studying for a test—hence the title “Procrastination In Red”.

I wish I could procrastinate like this. I would get so many awesome things done.

The Cutest Little Assassin

She’ll kill you with cuteness…or swords.

This adorable assassin was created by Faebelina. You can see more of her work here.

And yes, she takes commissions.

The signs of the Zodiac have been represented differently throughout the ages, but I’m pretty sure these are the most monstrous takes that we’ve seen.

Artist Damien Hellabrand definitely thought outside the box and came up something pretty amazing. In fact, I would love to see these as action figures (or a Guillermo Del Toro movie). It reminds me of the McFarlane Monsters series in a very good way.

As a Libra, I think he caught my essence perfectly.

Check them out after the break.

Some books are so special that you’re willing and happy to buy different editions, and the Harry Potter collection falls into that category. Scholastic andd Bloomsbury are releasing a deluxe hardcover version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on October 6, 2015, and guys, it’s illustrated! The book will feature full color art throughout and illustrated endpapers. Accio, fancy book!

Artist Jim Kay is tackling the illustrations, and four new images were just revealed. We saw Kay’s take on Harry and Hogwarts just over a year ago, and these new pieces feature Hermione, Ron, Draco, and Hagrid. Kay says:

“To be given the opportunity to design the characters, the clothing, the architecture and landscapes to possibly the most expansive fantasy world in children’s literature, well let’s just say I’m extremely excited about it. The story is everything, and so I want to bring what I can to really show the depth of Rowling’s stories, to their best.”

I love what he’s doing so far.

See Ron, Draco, and Hagrid after the break.

superhero inspirational poster 1

Superheroes keep rather busy with the day to day schedule of fighting criminals and stopping nefarious plans. It’s probably hard to stay motivated. Artist Adam Thompson reminds us and them of why being a hero is the best path with his “Heroic Words of Wisdom” series. Each poster features the silhouette of a DC Comics superhero and an inspirational quote from him or her.

Thompson explains on Behance:

My work, centered around comic book characters, comes with the challenge of reaching to an audience beyond those who are already fans of those characters. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy very much to see existing fans of these characters who enjoy my work. However, up until this project, I’ve been indulgent of being a fan, and neglectful of the challenge of reaching that larger audience.

Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it’s the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.

These are the kind of motivational posters I’d put on my wall.

Hit the break to see the rest of the posters.

Spidey

Redditor logic-pending decided to make a very special present for her boyfriend who is a huge Spider-Man fan. Over the course of 2 months and about 100 hours she drew this beautiful picture of Spidey (yes, this is a drawing). She chose to use Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it looks so good, you’d swear it was from the film.

See more pictures after the break.
