Transformers Papercraft

Transformers Papercraft

This Transformers papercraft model of Bumblebee makes our paper football look like such weak sauce: it’s made with food cartons and KFC bucket lids and actually articulates.

Keith Thompson’s Art

Keith Thompson’s Art

Keith Thompson is one of our favorite sci-fi/fantasy artists; not only is his work awesome, but he takes the time to write background stories. Spend an hour here; we sure did.

Greg “Craola” Simkins

Greg “Craola” Simkins

Greg “Craola” Simkins has a surreal style which isn’t easily forgotten (we love the Cadillac UFO above). Once a graffiti artist, he’s worked with Vans, Kid Robot and Disney. Thanks, Ben!

Dan McPharlin’s Analogue Miniatures have us awestruck; made with framing matboards, most of his models are musically themed, mixing dials and sliders with keyboards.

Check out these sweet silkscreen posters by Hydro74; they’re actually an uncut promo print that includes nine of his favorite illustrations on 14″x21″ French Paper. Limited to 40.

The Art of Rodrigo Braga

The Art of Rodrigo Braga

Rodrigo Braga’s artwork is creatively disturbing; based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he’s worked for companies such as Chevy but does quite a few club flyers. He’s also a DJ, too.

Lockwasher’s BeertooD2

Lockwasher’s BeertooD2

Lockwasher is a prolific artist who creates robot sculptures with found objects. Our favorite by far is BeertooD2, although we do wonder if it’s as helpful as the Bud Light Bot.

Book: Transit Maps

Book: Transit Maps

Transit Maps of the World is perfect for map lovers; it contains every urban transit map on Earth and makes an excellent coffee table book. Our fave: a fictional world transit map.

Created by German graphic designer Heiko Klug for Desktopography, Tiny World is a brilliantly executed wallpaper, even with all the balloons. You can also purchase a print here.

Holographic Water Dragon

Holographic Water Dragon

Not that Japan doesn’t have enough monsters, but the Water Dragon hologram above was filmed in Tokyo Bay. It’s actually part of a Sony ad campaign for The Water Horse movie.

We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.
