Blade Runner-The Watercolor Edition


(YouTube Link)

The dreamlike quality of Ridley Scott's classic scifi film Blade Runner has been captured in a most painterly manner by Anders Ramsell, who reproduced thirteen minutes of the film (so far!) via 3600 watercolor paintings.

He plans on making over the entire film in this colorfully abstract manner, and I for one can't wait to see the rest!

Awesome 3D Pac-Man Street Art



This mind blowing work of 3d street art makes me want to walka-walka-walka on the other side of the street so I don't get lost in the maze!

World Map Aquarium



Let your fishies tour the globe from the comfort of your home with this world map aquarium.

Even better than the playtime potential is the fact that this world map aquarium is also a coffee table! No wonder designer Takuro Yamamoto won a TIFF Award for this cleverly designed fish cage.

Are WikiCells The Future Of Edible Packaging?



Biodegradable packaging, used to simulate and replace plastic packaging, is becoming more common every day, so is edible packaging that far behind?

Harvard professor David Edwards doesn't think so, and he's got a fun new form of packaging to prove it. It's called WikiCells, and here's how it works:
WikiCells are food and drink enclosed inside edible soft skins, that are made of food particles and held together by nutritive ions, so that users can eat the entire packaging (like grapes)—as an effort to reduce pollution accumulated from packaging of food.

At first Edwards worked with yogurts and mousses. But now, he has produced WikiCocktail—Cointreau suspended in skin made from orange zest—and Wiki IceCream, a high-end dessert of cream contained in a bagasse container made from sugarcane.

According to the company, users can wash the entire thing, hold it in their hands, eat it like an apple, poke it with a straw or drink it like a shake.

What a fun and creative way to help cut down on global waste!

The Evolution Of 8-Bit Art


(YouTube Link)

The PBS series Off Book is back with another look at a cutting edge artform, this time focusing on the gamer friendly world of 8-bit art.

8-bit art has become even more popular since the good old days of video game consoles, and has even spawned an awesomely geeky form of electronic music to occupy your time between gaming sessions.

So sit back and wax nostalgic as colorful, but not too colorful, pixels dance across the screen to that charmingly minimal 8-bit sound!

George Harrison As A Plushie

George Harrison's huggable plushie alter ego looks like it just stepped off the Yellow Submarine and into a Strawberry Field...forever.

Created by Felt Mistress for an upcoming Beatles themed art show, this is the soft and cuddly, sitar jamming George we all know and love, and the only thing he's missing is a voice box so he can chant a Hare Krishna mantra.

Fancy Dresses Inspired By The Avengers



These Avengers inspired dresses, which were designed by Kelsey Michele, are bringing a touch of couture to comic book culture, and they look like a fun way to show the world you're a geek with loads of class!

Sadly, they're still at the conceptual drawing phase, but I'll smile my face off if I ever see someone wearing one of these super powered ensembles to an awards show or fancy folks party.

Sculptures Made Out Of Photographs



Susy Oliveira isn't content with letting photographs lay around looking all flat and boring, so she shapes them into three dimensional sculptures that put the gee in geometrical.

What would be considered dead wrong in the world of texturing CGI models looks rather fantastic on the surface of a humanoid shaped paper sculpture, sprawled out on the floor and covered in polygonal planes like he just escaped from the Matrix.

Through this technique you can find out exactly what a person is made out of, and you'll know just where they've been...

The Heavy Metal Quilts Of Ben Venom



These aren't your grandma's quilts, although I'm sure she would respect the skill and originality it took to create these comfy works of fabric art.

Created by Ben Venom, a man with a name so metal that his soft rock friends stopped calling him, these heavy metal quilts bring the love of snuggling together with head banging imagery, and they're sure to make the Dreamlands a much more treacherous place.

If you're in San Francisco why not check out these softly screaming works for yourself at the Guerrero Gallery, now through July 7th.

A Pixar Style Version Of Justice League America



Digital artist Daniel Araya created these fun concept art pieces that envision what a Pixar version of DC's Justice League of America would look like.

The characters look like they'd fit right in with The Incredibles, but the fact that Disney owns Marvel Comics means that a DC/Pixar movie is about as likely as a real life Superman falling to earth just outside of Smallville, USA.

This Is One Gnarly Skateboarding Video


(YouTube Link)

The skater featured in this exciting video is Aaron "Jaws" Homoki, and I have a feeling he'll be looking to get on a leg bone transplant list after taking so many dangerous drops!

He makes leaping from such great heights look easy, although I'm sure his slam video is incredibly painful to watch.

Picasso's Guernica, Starring the X-Men



What would Picasso do to get back in the spotlight if he were alive today? Why, add the Uncanny X-Men to his classic mural Guernica,  of course!

This piece was created by Cynthia Rodgers for the Comic Book Resources contest The Line Is Drawn, where contributors were asked to imagine radical re-designs for classic comic book characters. I'd say this piece definitely qualifies as radical!

10 Reasons Why Getting A Garfield Tattoo Is A Terrible Idea

Adventure Time Meets Studio Ghibli



In terms of cuteness this Adventure Time X Studio Ghibli mashup by illustrator Deighvid rates 100% on the adorability scale.

This mashup series looks like it was meant to be, because the character design styles from both series mesh together so well.

And the most impressive bit about these fun illustrations- they were drawn by a seventeen year old!

A Robber Fly With Some Sweet Dance Moves


(YouTube Link)

This video features a robber fly getting down to the song Too Close by Alex Clare, proving that this fly guy has what it takes to put his enemies in check both on and off the dance floor.

I love these silly little "sync a video of something moving to a popular song" videos, but I can't help but think that this little guy would look good getting down to any song with a beat. Remixers, do your thing!

Popular Characters As Pac-Man Ghosts



This simply adorable bunch of ghostly characters comes to you courtesy of graphic designer Ryan Coleman, who played Pac-Man for so long that he's started seeing things, like Bender's face on Blinky's body.

Someone should make an indie Pac-Man spin-off with these cute little guys, in order to literally feed the Pac-People's obsession with popular culture!

This Is How DJs Mixed Records Over 100 Years Ago



Think Disco or early Hip Hop DJs invented mixing and crossfading? I thought the same thing, until I read about this wondrous device.

It's called the Chronophone, and it was invented in 1910 by French engineer Leon Gaumant to sync sound and film when the length of one gramophone simply wasn't enough.

It's capable of crossfading and mixing via two platters, with the sound pumped out via "twin gramophones, driven from a common electric motor between them. An air hose goes to each valvebox from the control valve just under the air pressure gauge...this control valve allowed the operator to crossfade between the two gramophones."

I wonder what people would have thought about scratching records in 1910?

Mike Tyson Sings A Song About LeBron James

Mike Tyson is a man who has re-invented himself time and time again. Who else could go from heavyweight champ to actor to comedian, and is that a career in music I hear in his future?

Watch him bust out a tune for your enjoyment on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, a song about LeBron James and basketball.

Singers are a dime a dozen, what the world needs now is another heavyweight head puncher turned comedian. Keep on punching out the funny Mike!

And is that Spider Man wearing a suit of Waynetech body armor? Man, those poor kids in Argentina are going to be totally confused if they ever read the comics!

The Art Of Ron English And....Chris Brown?



In what must be the most unlikely pairing ever, artiste extraordinaire Ron English and pop star/face puncher Chris Brown participated in a joint art show together entitled Dumb English and, to my surprise, Chris Brown's paintings aren't the worst thing I've ever seen scrawled on canvas.

Sure, his style is a bit contrived, and each piece looks like it took him about ten minutes to paint, but I expected far less from the singer so color me impressed!

I betcha Ron will look back upon this show with a smirk on his face and a stiff drink in hand, candy colored memories dancing in his head...
