Craig Drake Illustrates Badass Female Action Stars & More In Solo Show

I’ve been ogling Craig Drake’s work for a while now and when I saw he was doing a solo show, I lamented not having $200 for his work featuring Buffy…on wood! Then I found out there were prints. But they were already sold out (#nerdworldproblems). However, thanks to “The Internet,” I can look at his gorgeous images until my heart is content. Take a look at a few of his pieces featuring characters from Game of Thrones, Kill Bill, Star Wars, and more.

Sci-Fi Life Would Be Less Complicated If Everybody Read These Manuals

Alien PEZ Dispenser is Not a Real PEZ Dispenser, But Should Be

A Xenomorph Ring That Actually Morphs

Sure, it looks just like the sort of clunky, sci-fi inspired ring that any person might deign to wear about their pretty little finger, but Kilroy’s Attic crafted it with a crazy, secondary, impractical form. Brass knuckles. The jewelry is not recommended for actual use as a weapon, because, well, its so pretty, but also because not a good idea to ask someone to wait for you to unfold your brass knuckles before starting a fight.

Almost Totally Excellent

Starz Might Do an Aliens-Inspired Military Sci-Fi Show With a Female Lead and Same-Sex Relationships. Yippee!

The show’s called Incursion, it’s created by Spartacus showrunner (and Whedonverse/Smallville writer) Steven S. DeKnight, and it sounds freaking amazing.
