“This is Aperture”- Portal 2 & The Nightmare Before Christmas Mashup

Oh sweet baby turret in a manger! Words cannot express the rush of delight I experienced while watching this Portal 2 and The Nightmare Before Christmas Mashup “This is Aperture” remix of “This is Halloween”.

YouTuber Harry Callaghan created this nerdgasm for us. The video quality is great, not to mention the hilarious lyrics and appearances by our favorite turrets, Wheatley, GladOS and more!

I’d support a Kickstarter to make this into a movie. Internet make it happen already!

Mashup Mania: Charlie Brown x Doctor Who

Ever wonder what the Doctor Who crew would like if Schultz drew them? No? Well thankfully Larry Wentzel did and he took his mashup idea one step further and made this adorable Doctor Who x Charlie Brown series.

Wentzel was actually inspired to create the Who/Brown series from the 10th Doctor panel below by Joel Watson at HijiNKS ENSUE. You can get it as a shirt also here.

Mashup Mania: What if the Doctor Attended Hogwarts?

I can already hear fanfic being created! Until the day that Steven Moffat and J.K. Rowling put their brilliant minds together and combine the Whoniverse and Hogwarts (which will most likely never happen but a girl can dream right?!), we have this collection of Doctor Who/ Harry Potter mashup art.

These came from Draw2d2 which I’ve blogged about before in Children’s Books Gone Geek. Draw2d2 is,

“Draw2D2 is core group of artists who draw geeky things, simple as that. Everyone in the group submits one idea and through some complicated mathematical equations and lots of sweat, those ideas are paired up to create the mash-ups!

Our artists have 2 weeks to do the illustrations. Postings occur every other Wed and the deadline is marked by the looming countdown above! Then a poll is put up for you to vote your favorite. The Artist who wins the poll gets a spotlight post showing the process of their illustration, and then we do it all over again.[Draw2D2]”

Picture of the Week- ‘Ten and Wheatley’ and Interview with the Artist Rose Fox

Ten and Wheatley

Two of my favorite things at the moment (and in life) are Doctor Who and the video game Portal 2. Well geeks, dreams do come true! Tennant and Wheatley are the perfect mashup and it isn’t just because of their accents. Looking at this piece makes my imagination run wild, I can really see a DW episode taking place in Aperture Science. What a splendid episode that would be! Definitely a two-parter and then… oh there goes my imagination again, let me reign it back in.

The brilliant Rose Fox (yes I already asked her if her last name was really Tyler, she “claims” it isn’t) created ‘Ten and Wheatley’ and she makes a lot of other fan art from Supernatural, Good Omens and more which is featured in the gallery below. Check out the interview I had with her and read about where she got the idea for this weeks Picture of the Week, her favorite Doctor, artist and other geeky goodies. Also, Rose answers the most important question: cake or lemons?  Continue reading →

Picture of the Week- X-Muppets and Interview with the Artist Rahzzah

X-Muppets

Everyone loves a mashup! Not one, but two of your favorite things in one brilliant package. The doubly amazing X-Muppets made by the talented Rahzzah is no different. I was buzzing with nostalgia at seeing Jim Henson’s muppets all X-Men’ed out. Rahzzah couldn’t have picked better muppets to represent these mutants, with Animal as Wolverine and Beaker as Cyclops it’s as if they were meant for this mashup!

Check out Rahzzah’s Deviant Art for more of his art work and interview and gallery below. Continue reading →
