thor cat

Yesterday was National Cat Day (yeah, apparently it’s a thing), and Marvel showed their love for felines everywhere by sharing some delightful superheroes-as-cats art. The style of the illustrations by Jenny Parks is similar to the Doctor Mew portraits she did earlier this year. They feature Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Iron Man.

superfriends 1

LEGO introduced their Friends line a while ago, and while it has attracted some little girls to LEGO, the fact remains that it’s different. It’s not just the overly pink packaging and designs, the figures are actually different shapes than the standard LEGO minifigs. Freelance developer Jon decided to challenge the female stereotypes the Friends sets presented and started the LEGO Super Friends project.

For all of July, he made custom figures with LEGO Friends figures as the base. He turned the characters into superheroes and villains and released one for each day of July. He tackled characters such as Supergirl, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, and Captain Marvel. The custom builds look awesome, and if he sold all 31 of his Super Friends in a set, I’d happily fork over money for them.

ARROW

As an Arrow fan, I may have screamed a little when I saw this new image of Roy Harper trading his hoodie for this outfit. Colton Haynes wears it well, I have to say.

Yep, happy Arrow fangirl right here.

According to EW, we’ll see the Arsenal suit in the first episode of season three which airs Oct. 8 on The CW.

These beautiful watercolors each feature just a few key colors that manage to capture their superhero subjects perfectly. Artist Blule doesn’t leave hard, defined lines, but lets the colors bleed into each other and even splatter and drip on the page. It gives these innately complex characters a very simple and pure presentation. You can even choose your favorites from the collection and purchase them as prints to decorate your home.

geeky woodcut print 1

Carving out a woodblock to make prints isn’t a simple task, but artist Brian Reedy has mastered the skill. In his Etsy shop Woodcut Emporium, he offers incredibly detailed prints made from his woodblocks and they feature the likes of Darth Vader, Thor, Godzilla, and Lemongrab. The images are stamped onto rice paper, and they look unbelievably cool!

carved crayons 1

Many people use crayons to color art, but Hoang Tran turns the tools into art. We’ve seen his incredible crayon carvings of the house sigils from Game of Thrones, but he’s posted plenty of other colorful art online. His latest batch of crayon sculptures features the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Han Solo, Hello Kitty, Captain America, and more.

You can buy crayons and glass tubes for displaying them in his Etsy shop, Wax Nostalgic. The miniature pieces of art start at $32.

superhero rockstars 1

It stands to reason that superheroes could be talented musicians. They have all kinds of extraordinary skills, and maybe their enhancements would make them better at playing instruments. Artist Andrés Moncayo imagines such a world and has drawn members of the Avengers and Justice League as rock stars. The combination of music and superheroes works exceptionally well.

Superheroes and villains may have more on their plates than us regular folks, but they still have problems and have to get through life every single day. Artist Mike Mitchell focused on their human aspects in his illustration series titled “Just Like Us.” He drew characters from the Marvel universe in an adorable, cartoony style and depicts them performing normal people activities. The collection is part of a show at the Mondo Gallery.

Artist JSalvador from Los Angeles has taken some pop culture icons and turned them into adorable emo versions of their usual selves. He calls them SuperEmoFriends and they are so sad and cute you’ll just want to give them a hug. He’s got Beetlejuice, Link and a Terminator that looks way to cute to kill anyone along with a host of other sad but adorable characters.

poop batman

You know that collector in your life who has everything, and is impossible to buy presents for? No need to stress any longer because you can buy him or her superhero poop! No one will see this gift coming.

Etsy seller Antoni’s Art Asylum makes fake turds from polymer clay and puts them in a special, labeled jar. They’re extra fancy because they’re created to match the colors of superheroes like Batman, Hulk, and Spider-Man. So many poop choices! Each pile of colorful crap is made to order so no two will be alike, just like real poop. Leave it in the jar or put it on a friend’s floor or bedside table for laughs.
