Together At Last

Disney Characters Catch ‘Em All In These Clever Pokémon Trainer Illustrations

Artist Krista Nicholson‘s bright, exciting illustrations of Disney characters are almost too cute. Nicholson has definitely managed to slip some perfect pairing in there, from Vanellope and Jigglypuff to the adorable, but destructive, pairing of Stitch and Pikachu. Even Magikarp finds a Disney character to swim around with! You can see more of Nicholson’s art, featuring more Disney characters and Pokémon, at her Deviantart account.

Lilo of the Rings, Lilo & Stitch and Lord of the Rings Get a Mashup

Do I need a reason to post a James Silvani Lilo & Stitch/Lord of the Rings mashup? I certainly don’t think so.

Powerful and Comedic Deleted Scene From Lilo & Stitch Tackles Tourists, Exoticism, and Race

Said Chris Sanders, head storyboard artist, of the beautiful and atypical-in-many-ways Disney production Lilo & Stitch:

Animation has been set so much in ancient, medieval Europe — so many fairy tales find their roots there, that to place it in Hawaiʻi was kind of a big leap. But that choice went to color the entire movie, and rewrite the story for us.

Indeed, the film’s crew was only introduced to the foundational concept of ‘ohana, which was to color the interactions of most of the movie’s characters, and give it some of its most memorable and touching lines, by their tour guide while visiting the islands for research. The film’s Hawaiian and Hawaiian raised voice actors were given latitude to rewrite their lines to include more accurate dialect and Hawaiian slang. As to why the scene was cut, well, there’s been a lot of speculation.

It’s Like Cosplay For Your Eyes: Elaborate Eye Make-Up For Geeks

We’ve featured the work of phantasmagorically talented makeup artist Jangsara here before. We can’t help it, every time we come across more of her work we spend a good fifteen minutes just pawing at our computer screens, contemplating whether it makes any sense at all to go on a MAC shopping spree to try these looks on our own eyes, even with our less-than-steady hands. Her work is always good for filling our daily quotient of Pretty Things to Look At, and these recent efforts are no different. Click through to witness some of her geek-inspired eye-art, and make your peepers a little bit jealous.

Things We Saw Today: The New Logo For DC Comics?

So…this happened. On the left is the current DC Comics logo. On the right is what Bleeding Cool is reporting as their newly designed logo for both DC Comics and DC Entertainment. BC points out that when the old logo was revealed in 2005 it was universally panned but well-liked now. And guess what? Everyone already hates it. We can’t imagine why… Hit the jump for all the other stuff we saw today!

10 Kids Who Discovered Horrifying or Adorable Alien Monsters

We’ve said it before: Super 8 is this summer’s Inception, if only because a lot of its promise lies in the fact that we don’t really know how the plot of the movie is going to go. When we realized that we had to make an Inception Power Grid despite having only the faintest idea what the movie was about, we defaulted to listing great thieves, which ultimately didn’t have much to do with what actually happened in the movie. We recognize that we may wind up, again, slightly off the mark with this Power Grid, which is dedicated to all the little kids out there that managed to befriend the gamut of alien races and improbably survive because audiences don’t much like watching little kids succumbing to the true horrors of alien related deaths in science fiction.
