Clearly, there’s great potential for Game of Thrones house sigils to get a run into the Pokemon universe. Artist Cami Sanders plays the Game of Pokemon in this set where animals and creatures on house sigils have been replaced with a representation of their Pokemon counterparts. There is no dearth of Pokemon willing to take that job, and as Charizard, Tentacruel, Luxray, Sawsbuck and Mightyena show in these illustrations, the Pokemon aren’t quite away from home on house sigils from Westeros. The PokeThrones set is available on Society6.
Our beloved game characters are as likely to go the hipster way as anyone else. Following footsteps of their cousins from The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros characters too have taken the path of the hipster. These fun illustrations by Sam Milham are available on Society6.
Star Wars characters become a part of Chinese folklore in these illustrations by Sinapore-based artist Joseph Chiang. The mark of these illustrations is subtle changes to the characters that make them appear at home in these illustrations and remind us of Japanese woodblock prints of gaming characters we saw earlier. Prints available on Etsy.
A large cat mane for the house cat, now that’s ultra suitable and super cute. Plus, all that synthetic fur makes the cat a dangerous predator like it is supposed to be. Perhaps this offering to the cat will make it think better of the humans living in its house. Just kidding, cats don’t care. Available on Etsy shop Nestasnest.
Zev is a fourteen year old with an imagination and photography skills that are quite impressive. In the surreal photographs, Zev plays with perspective to often shrink himself to the size of little objects as he journeys though what looks like a magical landscape.
Batman fan Chris Weir went the extra mile for his superhero love to spend a lot of time and money in creating an authentic-looking batcave. It cost $150,000 and two years worth of time to create the cave that is filled with numerous collectibles and Batman memorabilia. How do you reach the batcave? Through a hidden entrance activated by William Shakespeare’s bust, of course. The cave features 100-inch TV screen, rows of cinema seats for guests, table football, and a functioning bar.
Looking the part of full scale models, action figures in Daniel Picard‘s photo series 1:1 Toys are playing their usual roles and sometimes, what we don’t usually see in their tales. The pop culture action figures were placed so as to present an illusion of being full size.
UK-based illustrator Rhys Kitson has created a set of illustrations of Star Wars with the adorable setting of Calvin and Hobbes. Han and Chewie go on adventures to steal cookies from “Jabba’s Cookie Palace” and giving out Kessel Run rides on the “Falkon.”
Nina Levy has two sons, who get a treat with their lunch everyday in the form of a conventional napkin being covered in fantastic art. The two boys often request what they would like to see on the napkins and Nina takes these commissions to create the lovely artistic lunch companions. This reminds us of the art of David LaFerriere, where he paints sandwich bags for the kids’ lunch.
