If you frequent pop culture websites like ours, you see a lot of pop culture art. And at some point, it may all blend together. But one artist does something that’s so different, so out of the box, once you see it, you never forget it. That artist is Andrew DeGraff.

So many of us grew up with Mattel toys—and now, as adults, that nostalgia is still part of us. Enter Gallery 1988, which holds annual art shows featuring works in all mediums based on Mattel’s most popular brands. Time to bring that childhood back.

We rarely think about the role food plays in our favorite TV shows or movies, but damned if it hasn’t been crucial. But what would Ghostbusters be without Twinkies? Twin Peaks without pie?
