  1. These BioShock-Style Video Game Vigors Belong On The Top Shelf

    Just a sip can't hurt, right?

    As a former bartender, I like to keep my cupboard well-stocked, and I'd love to have a few of these libations on hand. Let us all raise our glasses to artist Silvia Schneider, who illustrated this delightful tasting flight. Now, what can I get for you? A bracing cup of Dr. Edison's Cure? A splash of Spitter Kiss? On second thought, let's pass on the Spitter Kiss.

  2. These Are Literally The Most Literal Movie Posters We’ve Seen Today

    In the strictest sense.

    I have a liking for literal humor, so these clever movie posters by Danish Ahmed tickled my funny bone (figuratively). To be honest, I kind of want to see his version of The Wolf of Wall Street. It's got potential.

  4. Minimalist Movie Posters, Made With Simple Sheets Of Paper

    Get on my wall.

    It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.

  5. Artists Spoofs the “Disney Princesses Reimagined As Every. Damn. Thing.” Trend

    Disney Princesses as kitchen appliances!

    We've been known to participate in the "Disney Princesses as Star Wars characters! Game of Thrones characters! Warriors!," trend, so we don't have a ton of room to talk here, but screw it: Gemma Correll's "Disney Princesses, Reimagined" illustration still got a monstrous chuckle out of me.

    USA: last in soccer, first in art appreciation.

    The statue Chacán-Pi by Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara has stoically stood watch outside the Tübingen University Institute for microbiology and virology in Tübingen, Germany, since 2001.

    Especially the one with Hatshepsut.

    Animated children's movies often draw from source material that isn't particularly kid-friendly, but there are some stories that just can't be sugarcoated. This is where artist Jason Porath (a former effects animator at DreamWorks) comes in.

  10. “Icon” Art Show Illustrates the Essence of Pop Culture Classics Jurassic Park, Big, and More

    It Belongs in a Museum!

    Starting at Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 West this Saturday, June 14th, "Icons" showcases the work of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, collectively known as DKNG. The technical talk is that "icon" refers to the object in a show or movie that distills its essence—like the DeLorean in Back to the Future, or the barge for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The non-technical talk is that this series of art is really damn pretty, and more people need to do Beavis & Butt-head illustrations.
