For two years, Austin based artist Tim Doyle has been proving locations on television are as essential as the characters. The Kwik-E-Mart on The Simpsons; the RV in Breaking Bad; Castle Greyskull in Masters of the Universe; these locations are as important to their show as Homer, Walt or He-Man. Now, for the third year in a row, Doyle emphasizes that point with the art show UnReal Estate III, which opens Thursday February 6 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The artist has once again made iconic locations from popular shows into beautiful art.
In the past, Doyle’s tackled The Sopranos, Sesame Street, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who and so many others. This year, we’re proud to exclusively debut Doyle’s takes on Game of Thrones, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Lost, Adventure Time, Six Feet Under and The Munsters. Which is only a fraction of the show.

One of the best movie-related April Fools gags I can remember was from a few years ago: ThinkGeek’s Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag. It was a gross, hilarious idea that got so much attention, Lucasfilm actually allowed the company to make and sell the product.
This year, ThinkGeek is back with another batch of inspired movie related items that you’ll either really want because they’re so clever, or laugh at because they’re so mean. Items such as the Batman Family Car Decal above. Check out more below. Read More »
On Wednesday, you knew it was going to be big. Game of Thrones and two different posters for The Dark Knight Rises were just the tip of the iceberg. The Mondo Booth at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 was a must visit during the convention, featuring hundreds of eager fans rabidly anticipating the next of several random surprise releases. Lines caused major problems with security and with the schedules of Con attendees desperate to get one of these posters but, mostly, people left happy. Some of the highlights included a Lord of the Rings trilogy set by J.C. Richard, Princess Mononoke by Olly Moss, Lego Lord of the Rings by Kevin Tong, several Adventure Time pieces and even a surprise visit by Guillermo Del Toro to autograph Mimic by Jay Shaw.

Fifteen plus new posters by eleven different artists with up to four different drops a day. Mondo has truly upped their game for San Diego Comic-Con 2012.
