Artist Adds Geekery To Thrift Store Paintings, Makes Them Awesome



[View All on One Page]

Artist Dave Pollot, who describes his work as “art with a sense of humor,” is doing a series of paintings where he adds geeky things to paintings he finds at thrift stores. The results are often subtle but still a great way to let your geek flag fly in your home decorating. Enjoy!
