The world-famous Getty Museum in Los Angeles hosted a talk today with Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton to discuss the influences medieval art has on her costumes and to share some secrets behind her clothes (such as the Night’s Watch fur capes being made of IKEA rugs).
Guess what! April 15 piles on the days this year. It is Take A Wild Guess Day, supposedly poking those intuitive skills dulled by the pressure of Tax Day. Maybe That Sucks Day sums up the mood, but it is also World Art Day and Universal Day of Culture.
These adorable creatures, each with a name and a calling, come out of hands of Kharkiv-based artist Mariana Kopylova.
Exciting news! I applied to the Hubba Hubba review in the Bay, and they are interested in having me perform in July or August! I am so very excited to do this! One of my fellow performers and her husband are performing there in June, so I didn’t want to step on their debut, but I am very excited to get to do this…
March is going to be a busy month for our group, with two separate gigs and workshops on the horizon. This particular post is going to be all about the first weekend of March that we spent in Tucson, Arizona, with the steampunks of Wild Wild West Con! At this convention, our troupe, consisting of Nikolai de la Muerte,
I could have sworn this gig is really weird. First of all, I thought I was drawing something that goes along the vein of Sentai-Kamen. But alas, it was not, just some spoof, nay, don’t call it a parody, or so my collaborator says.
Hey everyone! Long time no see! I decided just before the New Year that among my many resolutions, I wanted to start up “SeeBonnyDraw” again, a YouTube art series I’ve been managing for some time now.
The last video I had posted to the channel was almost half a year ago, when I compiled a video showcasing the 100…
You might be familiar with the music of this little cartoon — that is Musorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain. Russian artist Galina Shakitskaya was the director and the writer behind this 10-minute-long gem, which was created using oil painting on celluloid. As a lead artist, she also created many more cartoons, including
These gorgeous paintings are illustrations for Ukrainian folk tales and European folk lore by a Ukrainian artist Kateryna Shtanko. They may look straight out of a fantasy book but they are firmly rooted in the Ukrainian and European material culture. But for snake men and women, that is.
This is a Ukrainian artist Zakhar Ponomarenko. He lives in Kryvy Rih.
Japanese artist Takumi recreated everything from Mad Max: Fury Road in an ancient Egyptian style, and while the movie has nothing to do with ancient Egypt, it still fits and looks really awesome with this art style.
...for the uninitiated are a Scottish football (as in soccer) team. They were founded way back in 1876 and are currently based in Glasgow, which is all well and good but why the hell am I writing about them on Odeck?
Check out this GORGEOUS set of illustrations for the more iconic death scenes in Game of Thrones. Tried to look for an artist, but my understanding is that it is pretty much crowd sourced from Tumblr, meaning I guess there are multiple artists that don’t seem to be listed as far as I can see.
You might have seen the Polish posters for the classic Star Wars movies on IO9 (along with stylistically similar Hungarian ones). With the fall of the Iron Curtain, it became easier to get promotional materials from the film distributors, and those wonderfully weird works of art kinda fell by the wayside.
Pom Pom Mirror is a new work by New York based artist Daniel Rozin made up of nearly 1000 puffs of (imitation) fur in two tones. Each puff is fixed to a small motor and able to rotate to display its black or white side based on the information given to it by a series of sensors.
Hi everyone. Who else has awesome sci fi or videogame tattoos? What is the story behind them?
with these t-shirts. I'm trying very hard to restrain myself and not buy one of each. These four are my favourite, but I really want to own them all. The rest of the amazing designs are here.
Ron Guyatt started his Solar System travel posters project a few years ago with locations on Mars, and he has since branched out to create a master work highlighting the best our Solar System has to offer.
