Super Mario Anime

The Japanese surely love their Super Mario Bros. We’ve seen renditions inspired by the more feudal days of Asian culture, but yet the culture clash continues. This time around the Mushroom Kingdom has been anime-tized. Basically, if Super Mario and Pokemon switched places in some parallel universe, this would likely be the result. This concept might not have been too ...

Pride and Predjudice and Roundhouse Kicks To Zombies’ Faces

Chuck Norris has nothing on Elizabeth Bennet. Recommended viewing for those of you who loved Pride and Prejudice and Zombies or Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. I’ll tell ya, for how different things were back then, when it came to zombie slaying, those women were pretty uninhibited. Showing her knee and everything? *growl* Link

Extremely Inappropriate Jazz Hands

I can’t think of any situation that really calls for jazz hands. Even dancing. On the other hand, there are some situations where jazz hands are much more inappropriate then others. I can at least understand why they could be worked into a dance routine, but if you’re a member of the clergy, there’s no reason for it, aside from ...

Girl With a Pearl Earring Recreated Using a Single Bic Pen

Artist James Mylne took on the challenge of recreating Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring using only one single Bic Cristal pen. Apparently the sort of shading he accomplishes in the portrait is possible using a variety of different pressures. Man, it just boggles my mind that people can do stuff like this. I have trouble successfully composing a ...

Mario Meets Michelangelo: La Piet Goes Geek

Based on Michelangelo’s famed sculpture, La Piet (which you can see after the jump), designer Kordian Lewandowski used a block of polystyrene foam to complete his very own work of art – the Nintendo-inspired Game Over sculpture. Measuring slightly taller than an averaged sized man (seems to be about six-feet tall), Game Over mixes the drama of Renaissance art with ...

1-Down Mushroom Could Just Ruin a Plumber’s Day

Even fictional plumber’s have nightmares. And if Mario does in fact dream, this is 1-Down Mushroom is surely the culprit that keeps him up at night. While he’s never actually seen one in the wild (or so he tells the cops), in fact their actual existence is questionable, his mother used to tell him that if he didn’t go to ...

Batman Takes on a Shark With a Lightsaber

No, I wasn’t kidding. In pretty much every epic battle print I’ve seen featuring a shark, the shark is getting owned, whether it be by an iron-fisted nun or Batman wielding a lightsaber. But then again, I guess the shark really hasn’t had a fair fight. The wrath of God and the Force aren’t really something any creature should mess ...

Decorating Nature or Why This Tree is Just Like Elin Nordegren

Nature is beautiful when you don’t live around it all of your life, but coming from someone who lived among the mountains and the trees and the grass for the better part of his short life, I can attest to the fact that the beauty of nature becomes sort of boring after you’ve seen it everyday for 10 years.
