Does it feel like the box art for every video game these days is the protagonist... just kind of standing there with, I dunno, a gun or a sword, probably scowling? You are not alone. Jacob Christensen noticed too. Yup: video game box art these days absolutely sucks. And the reasons why are complicated.
What is art? According to Plato, art is an imitation of an imitation, a mere illusion twice removed from the reality of the eternal Forms. According to me, art is something I like looking at.
Okay, it’s probably hell if you actually tried it. Alex Gorosh visited 13 museums in London, saw more than 140,000 works of art, and walked more than 22 miles in one day in an attempt to see all the art there is to see in London. He didn’t even see more than 1 percent of the art in the city. That’s because London has…
Whether it be Twitter, Facebook, your text messages or just general web surfing, it’s almost certain you’ve seen the work of 100% Soft. The artist has become the go-to person in terms of pop culture emojis because his style is so perfectly suited to it. This weekend, he’s having his second solo art show, and we’re…
Fro Design Company’s new poster, “The Upside Down,” really captures the misty, watery terror of the neighboring dimension that haunts the characters of Stranger Things. The monster is, of course, front and center—and Eleven’s looking especially badass with that Terminator-ish right eye.
With the lights on, John V. Muntean’s Lego creations look like something a five-year-old would build. “Look, mommy, it’s a horse!” But turn the lights off, shine a spotlight on these creations, and suddenly their real raison d’être is revealed; intricate shadow designs that change as each mass of Lego bricks is…
Beloved author Margaret Atwood is turning her talents to comics next month, alongside artists Johnnie Christmas and Tamra Bonvillain, for the wonderful-sounding Angel Catbird. To celebrate, we’ve got an exclusive look at some of the “pin-up” pieces included in the graphic novel of other artists’ take on this strange…
Sometimes I like it when artists draw Batman’s ears long. But, then, other times, I like it when the Dark Knight’s cowl is rendered with shorter ears. What about you guys?
And perhaps more importantly, Groot is adorable. I mean seriously, you might be distracted by the giant tentacle monster space battle going on at first, but look at that little face in the bottom left. Oh my god.
Director Stanley Kubrick left us way too soon back in 1999. Still, his 13 feature films continue to factor heavily into popular culture, from visual effects and dialogue, all the way down to the powerful marketing—like the iconic poster for 1987's Full Metal Jacket, adopted by artist Orlando Arocena with a scifi spin…
If we saw this on an airplane we’d probably throw up. Luckily, it’s just a video.

And now, competing for Team Cretaceous, it’s Parasaurolophus!
If there’s a famous comic book property out there, artist Francesco Francavilla has probably been a part of it. His realistic, yet pulpy and vibrant style fits perfectly with so many characters and publisher. Well his fantastic work is finally getting the gallery show it deserves.
Spencer Kern, a man so handy we’ve featured his work before, has seen people’s Pokémon Go battery woes and decided to do something about it.
Just because we’re patiently waiting for its sequel, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the wonder that is James Gunn’s first Guardians of the Galaxy. And if you’re looking for a striking new way to do just that, check out this poster.
I want to step inside the Crystal Universe installation by TeamLab and just never leave. It’s an immersive art exhibit that’s been around various museums and galleries already and it’s currently in Tokyo (which means I probably won’t get a chance to step in just yet but it’s okay, after watching this video, it’s all I…
