Lunchbox Dad Creates Pop-Culture Meals For His Kids

It probably says something about my urge to take care of something other than a cat that I can’t imagine packing any type of lunch for a child, let alone a creative one. Thankfully, Beau Coffron, also known as “Lunchbox Dad,” is happy and willing to do so for his three children. Take a look at just some of the fantastic lunchbox images he’s put together with yummy ingredients which make up Star Wars, Frozen, Dr. Seuss characters and more!

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.

Harrison Ford Did a Reddit AMA, Was An Amazing Curmudgeonly Bastard

To be fair, a lot of the responses Harrison Ford gave during his Reddit AMA—specifically what he says about that Blade Runner sequel—are not at all grumpy old man-like.

Artist Reimagines Pop Culture Icons as Byzantine Religious Icons

To be fair, Fotis Varthis says on their Behance page that their Byzantine series is based on the Byzantine art style as a whole, not on any particular saint iconography.

Karen Gillan(‘s Hair) Might Be In the Star Wars Sequels

“It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That’s when I was like, ‘Oh, my god, where’s my hair?!’ But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well. They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It’s just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to all these Star Wars monster heads in a warehouse. I thought that was really funny.”Karen Gillan talks to Collider about giving her hair the chop for Guardians of the Galaxy and what happened to it afterwards. Can we get the wig Matt Smith wore in “The Time of the Doctor” in that warehouse, too?
