Some of my favorite art finds this week:
Just look at this adorable Wall-E art. LOOK AT IT.
I actually fell in love with this next one a few years ago, but I recently rediscovered it again on DeviantArt:
By Jennifer Hom
The airships! The colors! THE AIRSHIPS!
I would *love* to have a giant print of this in my house, but sadly I don't think Jennifer has ever made one available. (If I'm wrong, someone please let me know!)
[Update: Prints are now available for sale here.]
I'm digging all the great art nouveau/geek mash-ups lately, and this has got to be one of the best I've seen:
By Adam Hughes
(From what I can tell this print isn't available, either. Sad panda is sad.)
Sillof is an artist who makes Star Wars toy mods which re-imagine the characters in styles like steampunk or retro sci-fi. And they. are. AWESOME.
Rand-2000, Dark Vanquisher, & Princess Lura from Sillof's "Serial Wars" series.
I desperately want to see these characters cosplayed.
Remember the "historical Disney princesses" series that went viral last year? It was the one that put each princess in a more historically accurate dress. Well, check out one of the latest additions: Tiana from Princess and the Frog!
Isn't she fabulous? Now, go gawk at the rest of the series here, and just TRY to resist buying them all when you realize the 4x6 prints are only $4 each. ONLY $4, YOU GUYS.
And speaking of affordable amazingness, check out "Droidettes" by Robin Kaplan, aka the Gorgonist:
Robin has a whole series of girls in scifi dresses - which I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before - and they're only $7 each for a 5x7 print.
I'm also quite partial to the Doctor Who one:
And finally, feast yer eyes on this fabulous Alice poster:
(Click for full size)
By Dave Perillo, who has a bunch of prints (though sadly not this one) on sale here for $10. (And yes, I already bought the Ghostbusters one. OF COURSE.)
Hmm. I actually didn't intend for this post to be a Disney/Star Wars love-fest, but it kind of worked out that way, didn't it? Hehe. Whoops. Next time I'll try to mix it up a bit more. :)
