At first, you might think that directors Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick don’t have much in common. Their films couldn’t be on more opposite ends of the spectrum. However, Steve Ramsden used the similarity in the way Anderson and Kubrick frame shots as a reference point to create The Grand Overlook Hotel, a truly incredible mash-up of The Shining and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

If the idea of a Wes Anderson-designed Italian cafe just isn’t your thing, maybe you’ll be more interested in working in an office building created to look like the Enterprise from Star Trek. Or if you don’t feel like boldly working where no man has worked before, how about getting some drinks on board the RV meth lab from Breaking Bad?
Both are now possibilities in far parts of the globe thanks to the ingenious ideas of a few die-hard fans of both the classic sci-fi franchise and the contemporary crime thriller series. Get details on the Star Trek Enterprise office and Breaking Bad RV bar after the jump. Read More »

Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece.
In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. A few of the pieces even made my best of the year list. This year, the did a follow up show that contained even more beautiful work based on properties we all know and love. Stuff like Star Wars, Tron, Kill Bill, Akira, Pulp Fiction and more. Below, check out images from the latest Craig Drake Solo Show. Read More »
