Art crosses over to life with Alexa Meade’s stunning artwork: her subjects are literally painted, turning them into living canvases by using tempera and acrylic on flesh and other objects.
Games Are Evil’s Game Developers Flowchart also doubles as a surprisingly broad and deep family tree; it’s the end-all, be-all definitive history of video game development studios.
The Periodic Table meme gets elementary with Bill Keagy’s Periodic Table of Periodic Tables; it not only lists hundreds of tables but includes helpful links to their creators.
If you felt that Aliens vs. Predator was a disappointment, Giant Hamburger’s epic Alien Vs. Pooh makes up for it with plenty of face hugging, chest bursting fun in Hundred Acre Wood.
We featured Neill Cameron’s A-Z of Awesomeness project nearly a year ago, but he’s finally releasing it as a signed 286mm x 439mm poster; all profits will be donated to SSNAP.
In addition to exploring strange new worlds, NASA has some mad Photoshop skillz too; these official Mission and Expedition Posters are done up like sci-fi and action movie posters.
Zimoun’s installations of DC motors, plastic bags, and styrofoam balls seem more cacophony than music, but his Sound Sculptures do have a meditative, if machine-like quality.
Four-legged typographers everywhere are howling over Grafisches Buro’s Fonts by Dog, which attempts to match classic typefaces with panting, drooling, and barking faces.
We’ve featured Tesla art before, but ArcAttack’s Dorkbot SXSWi performance puts a spring spark in our step; it uses two “singing” coils with 1/2 million Volt sparks and a Faraday suit.
Packed with more trivia than a Comic Con, this Periodic Table of Sci-Fi Film and TV Poster takes us back to the future and breaks down all things geeky into its basic (fifth) elements.

Gabriel CaÃ±as’ Tetris Chair has only been seen as a digital render, but he’s finally put the pieces together and created a prototype; it’ll be displayed at the Video Game Museum in Paris.
