One look at Nekro’s darkly futuristic pieces and we had to feature him; aka Borja Fresco Costal, this Spain-based artist sticks with a largely monochrome palette with strategic bursts of color.

Star Wars/Trek Origami

Star Wars/Trek Origami

We never could fold one of those damned origami swans, so Won Park’s Star Wars and Star Trek Origami handily puts our skills to shame; they’re made with one dollar bills.

Space Invaders Cufflinks

We really dig these Space Invaders Cufflinks; they’re simple and straightforward, made with sterling silver and feature a mirror-polish base. The invaders themselves are menacing in matte.

Calling Admiral Adama: this Battlestar Galactica case sports an actual LED-lit hangar bay, CIC screens, and a BSG crest that doubles as an optical drive; even the monitor is modded.

Although he sadly passed this year, John Berkey’s futuristic paintings are photorealistic from a distance but painterly up-close; his works will no doubt inspire future artists.

Trailer: Naumachia
