I featured Marques Cannons Pin-Up Video Game Girls back in August 2010 before I started Picture of the Week and I knew that one day I’d have to bring them back and feature his Video Girls Series again because I loved them so much! Marques is also the first artist I interviewed for PotW and I hope to interview more of the artists I feature whenever possible. Kratos is definitely my favorite reinterpretation! Continue reading →
There is nothing wrong with you computer screen. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. Takun Williams’ is controlling the transmission… Okay I couldn’t help myself with that Outer Limits reference.
This weeks PotW is from Pop artist Takun Williams. His art is like looking at a kaleidoscope of color and geekery! I love the intense neon colors he uses, although while getting lost in his Tumblr for a few minutes my eyes needed a little break. Check out Technodrome1.Tumblr.com for more Technicolor dopeness and his twitter @TECNODROME1. Continue reading →
No you’re computer screen didn’t freeze, it’s just these cool Super Mario Bros. posters the graphic designers at from Proton Factory designed. I don’t know what it is about these but I really like them, it might be because they remind me of when the screen of your game freezes and a part of the image repeats, except these posters make me smile instead of ignite rage. If you want them move quickly because these are limited edition, pick them up at Proton Factory.
This week I’m featuring Faye Valentine art from Cowboy Bebop. Bebop is one of the best animes of all time (if not the best), but you already knew that. Continue reading →

John Karpinsky created these stunning Star Wars Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) art series. Somehow Karpinsky manages to beautifully combine Star Wars and the distinct artistic style of the Day of the Dead sugar skulls.
Here’s what Karpinsky had to say about his series,
“Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrating the dead. Sugar skulls are often created in the image of the dead, inviting them to enjoy a celebration and feast.
Star Wars was a large part of my childhood, which sadly passed long ago. This is my tribute to characters of my youth, an invitation to the celebration of that cultural phenomenon that shaped my life so long ago.”
- Buy prints on his Etsy shop CaptainMagnificent and read Karpinksy’s heart-felt message as to why he sells his prints
- Visit Karpinsky’s Flickr for more art
- Also check out Geek-Art.net (which I visit religiously) which features a ton a beautiful geek-related artwork and is updated frequently
Squealing with excitement yet? It’s okay, I was too when I saw this photo.
It was love at first sight when I came across this picture a while back. It took me some time to find who created it but with the help of social networking @identity_no2 located its creator by way of @BlogtorWho (thanks guys!).
This is the galactic version of the iconic photo of the sailor kissing the nurse on V-J Day in Times Square after WWII. The original was taken by Life magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt. The stormtrooper, Tracey (TK9612 on Flickr), was approached by Kim Thomson at the Star Wars Celebration V convention in Orlando, Florida to help her recreate the famous photograph. The stormtrooper version was photographed by Billie Fenton and photoshopped by Kim’s father (who’s done a great job). See the pre-photoshopped version here.

This weeks PotW is just bursting with all kinds of greatness! Everyone’s favorite boy wizard (or at least mine) Harry Potter and David Bowie’s alien rocker persona Ziggy Stardust combine their lighting bolts in this stellar art. The art is inspired from David Bowie’s iconic album Aladdin Sane (see picture below).
“Harry Stardust” was created by Evan Ferstenfeld & Enkel Dika. Here’s what Made with Awesome had to say about this design:
“Combining everyone’s favorite lightning-faced sorcerer and the iconic musician who launched a million spiders from Mars, this poster for the more sophisticated fan can magically transform any wall for the better, from the most spacious floating-candle dining hall to the tiniest cupboard room underneath your stairs.”
This Doctor Who/ X-Files art combines two epic sci-fi shows, which are also of my personal favorites (from a long list of favorites). I actually posted this image on Girl Gone Geek Blog’s Facebook Page (feel free to “like” it) and loved it so much I had to blog about it as well.
Kyrstin Avello is the magnificent individual who created this check out her site here for other great geek related art, graphics and animation. I originally found this on Xavixavxav Tumblr (special thanks to him for giving me the source link!) and Geek-Art.net Facebook Page. Enjoy and Believe!
