The best thing about the world of Star Wars (other than it being the world of Star Wars) is how incredibly detailed it is. Everything you see on screen has a backstory, everything basically has an explanation, anything can be nerded out on. So here are the backstories and explanations for the vehicles and spaceships…
One of our favorite artists, Scott Park, illustrated the spaceships and vehicles in the original Star Wars trilogy to scale and it’s just so good. You get to see how a Stomtrooper compares in size to a Tauntaun to an X-34 Landspeeder to a TIE Fighter to the Millennium Falcon to the Death Star and everything else in…
Artist Scott Park managed to do the incredible: he drew nearly all the identifiable spaceships and vehicles and animals used in the original Star Wars trilogy and laid them out in one awesome poster you can buy. There’s basically everything you love and know here: the Millennium Falcon, both Death Stars, TIE Fighters,…
One of our favorite artists, Scott Park, illustrated 33 of the cars from Mad Max: Fury Road and they look great. You’ll see Furiosa’s War Rig and the Interceptor and the Gigahorse and more drawn in a really fun style.
These photos from ErAn Croitoru’s Animated Photography series are awesome because they bring normal objects like alarm clocks, hammers, birthday candles, coffee pots, fruits and other things to life. In each photo that he creates, each item has their own personality and goofy story. It’s clever, creative and just…
Here's a neat series artist David Schwen made with The Daily Share: he deconstructed pizza, cheeseburgers, tacos, sandwiches and hot dogs and then placed each of their ingredient separately on lunch trays. The comfort foods look almost surgical under this sort of layout. And, well, they also look like a slightly…
Wes Anderson's quirky characters are always memorable and leave an impression on me even long after I've watched the movie. Artist Alejandro Giraldo memorialized them in these illustrations, capturing the essence of each character in his drawings.
These images show how a bacteria looks under a microscope. But that doesn't mean Artist Rogan Brown used a microscope obtain them. That would be too easy. Instead, he spent four months cutting sheet after sheet of paper with a scalpel knife and ended up with this insanely intricate and astonishing sculpture.
When I see British designer and calligraphist Seb Lester work I picture myself sitting quietly next to him just watching him do his job. I'm sure calligraphy is a very relaxing thing to do, this video—where he skillfully recreates famous logos by hand—proves that it's also a mesmerizing thing to watch.
French illustrator Guillaume Cornet loves making large but insanely detailed drawings of cities full of surreal little characters. This mesmerizing time lapse shows the process of making his last work: A humorous depiction of a Parisian neighborhood.
This alphabet—by Boston-based graphic designer Ari Weinkle—is quite unique. First because its texture feels realistic, organic, and alive. And second because its creepy moves: The letters twist and turn as if they were actual animal appendages.
Eddie Del Rio grew up loving Star Wars and comic books, spending "most of [his] time lost in my kenner action figures, immersed in comics and oh yes....drawing." His passion for all things spacey, roboty, and shiny shows in his artwork.
Tom Havlasek is a painter who is obsessed with motorsports. His large format pieces, all made using acrylic, capture the perfect angles of some of the most iconic race cars in history. I would love to have the Gulf Porsche and any of the cars with Marlboro livery. See if you can identify all of them.
After watching Interstellar and hating it, designer Nick Barclay thought on Hal 9000 and a crazy idea popped into his mind: If a circle can be a main character in a film it could also be the protagonist of a poster. So he decided to make a whole series of famous movie posters using only circles. Check it out:
I always wanted to see the actual infantry attacks on the Hoth's Rebel Base. Not just a couple scenes but a full Saving Private Ryan's Normandy invasion battle with a ton of imperial storm troopers led by Darth Vader. Apparently illustrator Dave Dorman had the same idea in mind. Here's his vision.
"Jupiter Ascending isn't just a mediocre film. It's also self-indulgent, and in love with its own excesses," says Charlie Jane Anders for io9. One of the excesses is the glorious eye candy, which seems to be a constant mental overload. You can thank the genius of George Hull and his baroque concept art for that.
