The Imperial Undead: Star Wars and Zombies

Geek porn. That is exactly what this is. A cleverly devised ploy to sell as many t-shirts as possible to the geeky masses. As much as you might try to not buy in to total geek bait, it’s hard to deny the allure of Star Wars and zombies melded together on, what else, a tee. As if the founding fathers ...

TMNT action figures were my toy of choice when I still whipped out my figures for a daily rumble. I’m trying to give it up, really. I haven’t even touched my toys since yesterday. What you are witnessing above is supposedly the new look of the upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. I’m not quite sure how I feel ...

The Vitruvian Inspector: Go Go Gadget Da Vinci!

Vitruvius Pollio, the man who inspired Leonardo da Vinci’s work on his iconic Vitruvian Man, once described the human body as being “the principal source of proportion among the Classical orders of architecture.” Maybe that’s true when you’re dealing with a perfectly proportioned male specimen, such as myself, but Inspector Gadget’s form is more akin to that of a fun ...

We All Have Super Powers

Call them what you will. Talents, feats, everyday tasks. I call them SUPER POWERS! Yes, it must be in all caps. No exceptions. SUPER POWERS! My mom was always trying to underestimate my SUPER POWERS! but I swear, tying your shoes with your eyes closed takes more than talent. If you want to see this shirt head to print head ...

Stained Glass Transformers

Finally, my plans to break ground on the First Church of Optimus Prime can commence! These stained glass Transformer pieces transform (no pun intended, honestly, that would be inexcusable) any room’s fixtures from boring to geektastic. AutobotWonko created these gorgeous stained glass pieces inspired by everyone’s favorite robots in disguise. Ok, since we’re on the topic of 80’s cartoons, what ...

Construct Your Own Wayne Manor: Blueprints of Fictional Homes

Looming over the outskirts of Gotham City, Wayne Manor sits, a massive structure of stone and brick. Within its walls sits a mere man, watching over the city streets from the protective quarters of his underground lair. But Wayne Manor never existed. Nor did the home of the Jetsons or the Flintstones. But that certainly didn’t stop Mark Bennet from ...

The Surprisingly Bacon-less Starship Enterprise Made Out of Assorted Meats

I know what you’re thinking. This is a meat sculpture. A geeky meat sculpture at that. There should definitly be some sort of bacon integrated into the design, or at the very least, Unicorn Meat. But, alas, there is no bacon to be found. Some Trekkies will just never learn. Created using various sausages and even some salami for good ...

Mario Made Luigi an Offer He Couldn’t Refuse

Not going to star in my games anymore under ah-me, Mario? You want your own fame and-ah fortune? You want to-ah split from the family business? We’ll-ah see about that. Don’t even try getting out of the game Luigi. Bad things might happen to you. Very bad things. If you want to see this design on a purchasable tee, head ...

A Mask of Photo Booth You

You know how you can use Apple’s Photo Booth app to take some crazy-ass photos of yourself using the various effects? Designer Mark Pernice had the bright idea of creating a mask representing one of the photos taken using Photo Booth and then somehow magically using the app to recompose himself while wearing the mask. Or something like that. I ...

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 ...
