Christie's New Sculpture Introduced By Spider Man



This spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois looks big enough to swallow Spider Man whole, and probably should gobble up the webslinger for being such an attention monger!

Christie's auction house decided to unveil their newest acquisition by hiring Craig Henningsen, star of Spider Man the Musical, to commemorate the occasion with some web-headed antics. The piece is the second largest spider sculpture in the world, and is expected to sell for over 4 million dollars.

How The Joker Became The Clown Prince Of Crime



In my opinion, the Joker is the ultimate comic book villain. From the beginning he has been one badass dude, killing with laughter in a time when comic book deaths were few and far between.

He is the ultimate nemesis, a criminal so chaotic, so insane, that Batman's logical mind simply cannot keep up. The Joker has seen his character remodeled over the years, but not as much as many of the other comic book heroes and villains that get facelifts, proving that the Joker's creators more or less had it right the first time.

ComicsAlliance has an interesting and insightful article detailing the history of the clown prince of crime, read on if you want to see just how far the Joker has come over the years.

Art Deco Inspired Superhero Posters



If you saw this poster outside the theater advertising an upcoming release, wouldn't you expect the film to be some sort of avant garde silent film with a science fiction twist?

Created by French designer Greg Guillemin, they're minimalist and moody, and their retro style could be the inspiration for a new alternative universe storyline. Silver Surfer fighting the Nazis in WWII, now that would be an interesting tale to tell!

Portrait Created From The Average Of 500 Photos



This is what Flickr user clickflashwhirr looks like when 500 portraits of her, which she takes every day like the world's most dedicated narcissist, are averaged into one angelic looking photo.

The guy who put the photos together might be stalking her on Flickr, but I'm sure she will be flattered to see the result of her years of vanity rendered into the perfect self portrait.

A Flock Of Steampunk Birds



These bird sculptures look as if you could wind them up and watch them take off! Created by Jim and Tori Mullan, these marvelous pieces were crafted using found objects attached to wooden bird statues. These would have fit right in during the Victorian era, and you can't get much more steampunk than that!

Fascinating WTF Photos From Russia



Russia seems like a chaotic place to live, with giant pigeons lurking around every corner, blighted urban landscapes full of dogs getting it on, and an extremely diverse citizenry trying their best to act like nothing's wrong.

These photos capture a side of Russia few outside the country ever get to see, and each image has an interesting story to tell.

Ads For Products From Video Games



This is what advertising would look like if we lived in the fantasy worlds we enjoy vicariously through video games. Products would be marketed towards adventurers and heroes, and the magical would be mundane as ad agencies try to increase sales.

My faves are the ads for hair care products featuring Final Fantasy characters and anime girls with rainbow colored hair. I guess they weren't born with pink hair?!

The Whisper Campaign Against Batman



Apparently men wearing spandex on television wasn't looked upon very kindly during the 1960's, and whisper campaigns plotted to take shows like Batman off the air due to an overwhelming fear of homosexuality, implied or otherwise.

An article from TV Radio Album, circa 1967, suggests that Adam West and Burt Ward might have been more than just friends, which was meant to turn public sentiment against them, then the article proceeds to show the dynamic duo doing karate and surfing like total studs. Read on, faithful viewer!

Tweet Like One Of The Mad Men



File this device under unique and useless, perfect fodder for blog posts! The device is the one and only analog Twitter client, Tweephone, and you must use the rotary dial to enter the letters, one turn at a time just like the old days.

If you have money to burn and love to Tweet then your house needs this decorative device. The rest of us will be more than happy just reading about it, i'm quite sure of that.

Prisoner Makes Final Fantasy Weapons Out Of Matchsticks



A prisoner/geek in Wales had his secret stash of matchstick weapons, including the Buster Sword and Squall's Gunblade from the Final Fantasy video game series, confiscated because:

"...the realism of the swords presented a threat to staff safety, not because they could be used to send the staff back to the Lifestream, but because they look real from afar and could be used to threaten people."

This guy will have a sweet job waiting for him when he gets out-making replica weapons out of balsa wood.

Oddball Japanese Video Game "Pepsiman"



Pepsiman is a true hero, overcoming every urban obstacle thrown at him in order to quench the thirst of citizens in need!

This strange offering from Japan was released in 1999 for the Sony Playstation game console, and it's faceless hero graced an advertising campaign in which Pepsiman saved people from death-by-thirst.

Do you think this game looks like goofy fun or a shameless advertising campaign?

These Are Some Serious Superhero Sculpts



These great sculptures by Calvin Ma casts an oddly frumpish light on spandex clad superfolks. They look emo, bored with life and overweight. These are what action figures must look like in the Bizarro world, with catchphrases like "why bother?" and "i'll get to it later". And, looking at his website, all of Calvin's sculpts look like action figures, even the bronzes!

Pop Surrealism From The Mind Of Mike Mitchell



Mike Mitchell is no stranger to Neatorama, since his paintings of Brobocop and the Parks and Recreation cast in Casablanca, have graced our pages before. So, as soon as I saw the gallery at BuzzFeed I just had to share.

This guy knows how to paint beloved pop culture icons like you've never seen them before, and his images are like eye candy to me-I always crave more, and I just can't get enough!

The Strange Statues In Frogner Park



Sculptors often express themselves in strange and mysterious ways, but most sculptors don't have their works on display in a public park.

Frogner Park in Oslo, Norway has chosen an odd assortment of statues to fill their park, 23 works that center around nude forms in weird poses doing who knows what to each other (nothing pornographic, I assure you) and often looking quite happy doing whatever it is they're doing.

BuzzFeed has a gallery showing off these enormous oddities, take a gander and i'm sure you'll be asking yourself the same thing I did- "Wait, what's going on here?"

Scratching The Surface Of The Urban Environment



Portuguese born street artist Vhils has an original vision of what urban development really means, and he travels the globe exposing what's beneath the surface of city walls .

Using various tools to dig, drill, scrape and otherwise remove sections of masonry, he reveals the images hidden behind the smooth walls, and the results are nothing less than spectacular. He should call his style of art urban erosion sculpture!

"This excavation, often a process of violent removal, stands in sharp contrast to the delicate portraits discovered hidden underneath."

Can you dig it?

This short demonstrates how sometimes simpler is better, and that good acting and straight ahead storytelling are often better than over-the-top action and visual effects in 3d animation. Enjoy!

Surreal Mascot Masks



These kooky mascot masks are the brainchild of Ian Langohr, who used skills learned while working for a mascot production company to channel his inner strange. Maybe these masks will inspire the wildest bunch of college mascots ever-California Nest Mouths anyone?

Tintin Fights Back

[Image deleted per DMCA request from Moulinsart SA]


I guess size doesn't matter when it comes to messing with Tintin. Illustrator Mike Holmes created this piece for an exhibit called Toronto Draws Tintin, running from November 2-27 at the Beguling. These guys must have been talking trash about Tintin's mother!

Painting With Light Photographs



Brian Hart creates these really cool light painting photographs by using exposure times up to 20 minutes long. Now that's what I call bending light! These images are so detailed that I can't help but wonder what sort of reference he uses while the shutter is open.

Master Splinter, What Happened To The Ninja Turtles?



Was a spell cast upon the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which turned them into trees, or is this tree just a really big fan of the series? This tree with a face would have fit in quite well on the set of the Dark Crystal.

Baby Lantern Has The Power Of All Color Spectrums



This baby just might be the most powerful being in the universe, since she has harnessed the power of all Lantern Corps. emotional color spectrums!

Readers of the DC Comics Green Lantern series (among the many other Lantern Corps. related titles) know that it doesn't stop with the power of green, but no one has ever harnessed all of the spectrum powers at once, and looked so cute wearing them all!

She even has the dreaded Black spectrum suit, but you'll have to head to the link to see her scary side.

Zombie Iron Man Is Falling Apart



Zombie Iron Man showed up at the Paris Zombie Walk 2011 looking like a billion bucks. I'm surprised he wasn't at Occupy Wall Street supporting the 1% by eating protestor's brains! Wouldn't it be hilarious if this caught on as a Halloween costume?
