Movies transport us into another world. Sometimes that world is familiar, other times it’s not but in both cases, they’re often places you’d like to go to. And while we might not ever really be able to visit Hill Valley from Back to the Future, Cybertron from Transformers, or Walley World from National Lampoon’s Vacation, the new show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles lets you take home a souvenir.
The show is called Postcard Correspondence and features over 100 artists creating actual pop culture postcards from their favorite locations in movies, TV, music and more. Some of the locations are real, some are fake, some are specific, some are general, but all are awesome, super affordable and actual postcards. You can send them, frame them, whatever you want.
Postcard Correspondence opens March 20 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, CA and you can see more of the work – including 10 exclusive reveals – below. Read More »

Star Wars has the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and soon we’ll see the sequel trilogy. Before that new series bows, however, we’ll get the book trilogy. One of the first books announced for the large-scale publishing event Journey to the Force Awakens is called Star Wars Aftermath. We’ve previously written about the plot of the book, which centers on a lone Rebel scout who learns of a secret Imperial meeting after the Battle of Endor, and we’ve covered the author, Chuck Wendig.
Now we know Aftermath is the first book in a trilogy that will answer some crucial questions about the Galaxy immediately after the destruction of the second Death Star on the way to the events of The Force Awakens. We also know a bit more about the plot, which characters will or will not appear and clues about The Force Awakens. Read about all that, and see the full book cover, below. Read More »
The essence of every character is the eyes and nowhere is that better seen than right this moment at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas. Their latest exhibit is called Eyes Without A Face by Jason Edmiston. Edmiston is an unfathomably talented painter who can capture the likeness and emotion of a character in ways you didn’t think were possible. He takes that ability to the next level with this show, where he painted the eyes of over 150 different pop culture characters. It’s a unique and fascinating exercise to prove you can almost instantly pick out any character, just by seeing a few inches of their face.
And, just to make things interesting, he did each painting in actual size. So King Kong is several feet long while characters from The Lego Movie are less than an inch. Below, find out more about the show, see images from inside and just a fraction of the amazing art in Eyes Without a Face at the Mondo Gallery. Read More »
No one has ever watched Return of the Jedi and not wanted to ride a speeder bike through the forest of Endor. The Speeder Bike chase is simply one of the coolest scenes in any of the movies, combining drama, character and pulse pounding action. But even today, over thirty years later, it’s impossible to experience. We can drive cars, motorcycles, even play video games that feel very close, but nothing quite duplicates the likely thrill of riding that bike.
And while we still can’t hop on that bike ourselves, there’s now a way to at least control something that fast and maneuverable. It’s a homemade Speeder Bike Quadcopter. Check it out below. Read More »
