There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
It was hard to pick one piece by
James Hance to use with this post, because we generally love everything he does. (Don't believe us? Check the tag.) Just page through his website and you're pretty much guaranteed to find something for the art-loving geek on your list.
Noelle Stevenson, aka Gingerhaze
Another one of our favorites here at The Mary Sue. Gingerhaze sells
prints of original characters, including those from her webcomic Nimona, plus fanart. We'll never get over her Broship of the Rings series, but there are pieces from Star Trek, Scooby Doo, and The Princess Bride on offer as well.
Only a small smattering of
Isabel Talsma's work is available in her Etsy shop due to some inventory shuffling, but if you a piece you like on her her site feel free to ask about a print. We recommend paging through her silhouettes series, where you're find an abundance of gift possibilities for the animation fan in your life.
Movie Bar Codes
Display your cinephilia in a subtle, classy sort of way with
moviebarcode, which takes frames from movies and... well, turns them into bar codes. To the left is the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, but if that's not your giftee's speed you can check out the long list of available prints.
This one’s for the art nerd on your list.
Jesse Rubenfeld illustrates geeky characters from Doctor Who, comics, Miyazaki, and more in the style of famous artists (often, but not exclusively, Norman Rockwell). See all his mash-ups over on Etsy.
Spray Paint Love
Spray Paint Love mostly does fanart of anime, with some Adventure Time, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter thrown in. But what really caught my eye when I wandered across her booth at New York Comic Con is her series of fairy tale princesses as women of color. She’s sold out of Rapunzel at the moment, but Snow White (left) and The Little Mermaid are still available.
Isaiah K. Stephens
Remember that series of
Disney characters wearing pop culture costumes that we posted around Halloween? The whole set’s available as a print on artist Isaiah K. Stephens’ Society6 page. You can also purchase individual prints of Mulan as Xena (left) and Pocahontas as Katniss.

The holidays are coming, swifter than
Guillermo del Toro announcing another project that he probably won’t have time to do. Not seeing more del Toro films is nothing but sadness, but luckily your holiday shopping doesn’t have to be. If you plan ahead, that is. All this week we’ll be posting holiday gift guides to help you pick out the perfect present for that nerd or geek in your life. Category the first: Art!
