Remember way way back when you were a child and “little golden books” were a thing. You know – right after snack time, and right before nap time. Well JoeBot has reimagined all of our favorite geek properties into little golden books, and they are priceless. My favorite has to be the Metroid version, but you’ll have to decide for yourself which one you like best after the break:
That’s right people – you read the headline correctly. Remember the movie Clue? Of course you do, it’s practically a national treasure! And because it’s such a highly revered and critically acclaimed movie, wouldn’t you know that an art gallery, Gallery 1988, in Los Angeles is opening one of their wings with “CLUE” inspiration from around the world. This gallery certainly isn’t clueless about taste – wouldn’t you agree Watson?
For those of you in the LA area, here is where you can find the gallery: Gallery 1988 (West), 7308 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046 – West of La Brea. And for the rest of us – click after the break to see a few more teasers for the show:
If you haven’t explored the world of Neil Gaiman and his Sandman series which follows the story of Dream and his brothers & sisters (aka The Endless) through a twist of tales and adventures, then you need to stop reading this, and pick that up immediately. Not only is it a stunningly well written comic, but the characters are fascinating. The depth and beauty that each character beholds is hard to explain, but the art featured here by Yien Yip certainly conveys the differences that are described by Gaiman. From left to right we have: Delirium, Death, Destruction, Dream, Destiny, Desire, and Despair. After the break are more of Yien Yip’s “Endless” creations.
Jurassic World takes over and becomes a jurassic city with these original art prints by Sky World Project. Want to see your own city taken over by these majestic but toothy, dangerous, hungry, and down-right-cray-cray beasts? Well then be sure to see the Dino take-down after the break – you won’t be disappointed! (And if Dinosaurs aren’t your cup of tea, be sure to check out SkyWorldProjects other prints for more geeky references like Batman, War Of The Worlds, Godzilla, and more!)
I really enjoy it when I come across original geek art that defies all reality and beauty. And in this case, these stained glass prints are just that. Beautiful… original… and made of paper. PAPER!? Yes – paper. So not only are these stunning, but they are affordable. Check out some of our favorites after the break, and if you want to see the whole shop selection, go see Etsy shop owner FayProductions.
David Peacock of Minimal Movie Prints has a keen eye for the geek. Not only does he love geek movies (as well as a bunch of other awesome flicks) but he is an amazing artist to boot!

See more movie posters after the break :).
Stop what you’re doing right now and look at this Paper Craft. Never have I ever seen something so beautiful, and so intricate made from little paper slices and dices. It’s a work of art – it’s a masterpiece – it’s simply magical. Brittney Lee is the master behind the material manipulation, and is quite wonderful to boot! You have to see the rest of her Harry Potter collection after the break:
Beery Method is a graphic, branding and marketing company based in Seattle. And I’m not gonna lie, some of their alternative images for our beloved Star Wars characters are a little creeptastic. But that’s what’s fun about it – check out the following pictures that are both crazy-wakadoo Star Wars as well as zombirific – also named “the Deathside collection” after the break:
I have no words – the more I look up things for Krull (THE WORST MOVIE EVER), the more speechless I become. Victor Poulin has been building handcrafted boomerangs for the last 6+ years, all of which are his original designs. He builds them all with 10 ply finish birch. Apparently these are very expensive to make, but definitely worth it in the end. Each one is hand made to order, signed and dated on the back. Want to see this Krull Glaive in action? Check out the video after the break!
