mass hysteria art show

They say opposites attract, and in art, the idea of mixing “cute” and “violent” helps prove the saying. 100% Soft, a California based artist, has a very distinct, very “cute” style where all the characters are small, sweet and cherubic. He’s had many pieces in lots of different shows but this week, he’s having his first solo show and the work is absolutely incredible.

The show is called Mass Hysteria and it’s a collection of art featuring massive gatherings and action scenes from your favorite movies, TV and music. It opens at 7 p.m. February 6 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles.

Some examples of this “Mass Hysteria” is the end of The Avengers, the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill, the hallway in Oldboy, the finale of Raiders of the Lost Ark and many other mass gatherings in pop culture, all viewed through that cute little filter. The results are just beautiful and gory and awesome. In a phrase: mind-blowing. Check out a small sample of the 30 + images in the Mass Hysteria art show below. Read More »

Watchmen Avengers

The Avengers are Disney/Marvel, the Watchmen are Warner Bros./DC, and never the twain shall meet. But if they did, the results might look a little something like this.

YouTube user The Unusual Suspect has cut together a new trailer for 2012’s Avengers, done in the style of Zack Snyder‘s Watchmen. It’s surprisingly effective sum-up of Snyder’s style, even though Snyder himself had nothing to do with it. Watch the Avengers Watchmen trailer mashup after the jump.  Read More »

Best Screenprinted Movie Posters of 2014

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.

That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

Joss Whedon wonder woman

DC almost beat Marvel to the punch. Years ago, DC and Warner Bros. had recruited a then cult writer named Joss Whedon to write a script for a Wonder Woman movie. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get made.

Years later, Joss Whedon went on to direct the biggest superhero movie of all time, The Avengers, and Warner Bros. is again developing a Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Michelle MacLaren. But fans still like to imagine what Whedon’s Wonder Woman may have been and now, we have a small glimpse.

A promotional poster for the would-be movie was available at San Diego Comic-Con 2005 has now made it on eBay. It’s available along with artist Adam Hughes‘ original drawing, making the set a very exciting and rare thing. Below, check out both pieces of Joss Whedon Wonder Woman art work. Read More »

Wonder Woman header

Until films like Doctor Strange go in front of cameras, we rarely get to see what the actors look like in costume. That’s where the fan community comes in. They’re always more than willing to grab an image of a famous actor, and others of their newly attention-getting role to put them together, giving us an idea what we might see on the big screen in the future. Two such recent instances are fan art of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Gal Gadot in some upgraded Wonder Woman armor. Check them out below. Read More »
