At first glance, or even careful examination, you may find nothing out of the ordinary about this room, besides the awesome decor. However, it would only be comfortable for an action figure or a really nerdy guinea pig. [click to continue…]

Origami artist Tadashi Mori is back with another Star Wars-themed tutorial. Making an origami Princess Leia isn’t easy, but the design is fantastic. Working on it can also be something of a meditation on a woman and a character that will be dearly missed. [click to continue…]

What artist Dante Dentoni has done with this Lego wall installation is quite impressive. We love the creativity on display here, though I don’t know if I’m ready to tear up my drywall just yet.

Check out all of the little nooks built into the display below. The fact that it was done for a club owner in Miami explains a lot. [click to continue…]

The 68th annual Sapporo Snow Festival is currently underway in Japan, and this massive Final Fantasy VII sculpture is undoubtedly the star of the show. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

French artist Thomas Romain is currently working in Tokyo on anime series that have included Aria, Basquash!, Symphogear, and Space Dandy. His talent is obvious, but I think his children are the real geniuses here. Since Christmas he’s been transforming concepts from his two sons into polished characters and sharing them in series that he calls the “Father and Sons Design Workshop”.

Check out more of their work below. I would watch the hell out of the anime these guys are cooking up. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen many artists attempt realistic Pokemon over the years, but they often use actual creatures as references. This series by Twitter user Kizakura adds that realistic element while staying true to the original design. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Stranger Wars

Artist Michael Maher Jr. created this fantastic Star Wars mashup featuring the kids from Stranger Things. You may have heard that Millie Bobby Brown has expressed a desire to play a young Leia—and this illustration definitely supports that idea.

However, Gaten Matarazzo as Chewbacca is the star of the show here. Some might consider that insulting, but the fact is that Dustin and Chewie are both lovable, awesome and steal pretty much every scene they’re in. [click to continue…]

This steel rod and river rock dragon sculpture by Ryan McCallister of McCallister Sculpture stopped me in my tracks. It’s just so stunning and incredibly unique.

Unfortunately, adjectives like that are usually accompanied by the word “expensive”, and that is definitely the case here. Ryan mentioned that a project like this would run around $20K which, to be honest, seems about right given the skill and effort that went into it. [click to continue…]

Artist Matt Ferguson is selling a trio of officially licensed, Gandalf-centric Lord of The Rings posters until Sunday, January 15 at 11:59 pm EST. They are stunning. [click to continue…]

Repurposing pallets into functional objects for the home has been trendy for a while now, but we really love what Kone Mei has been doing. Kone is transforming them into wall decorations that incorporate fun/useful items like wireless chargers and lamps. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
