Truck Torrence Makes The Cutest Little Renditions Of ‘Drive,’ ‘Lost’ And ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ [Art]
Truck Torrance, a.k.a. 100% Soft, chooses subversive subjects for his absurdly adorable illustrations. Bill Murray becomes a chibi version of himself in his different roles. Wolverine and Kitty Pryde smile on the cover of Days of Future Past. And movie villains from far and wide gather on a single poster, a demented campout of cutesy evil.
Kat Brunnegraff Paints Expressive Pokémon Among The Stars [Art]

Eduardo Peña Paints Moody Scenes of Batman, The Joker And Robots From Space [Art]
Many of Eduardo Peña's digital paintings are grand in scale, depicting Earth-shattering demonic forces, cities torn apart by mecha battles, the fearsome sandworms of Dune.

The Batmobile. Kaneda's Bike. Doctor Brown's DeLorean.

Jason Fischer Watercolors An Undead Pizza Warrior And Mario Made Of Meat [Art]
Food is a persistent obsession in Jason Fischer's watercolor art. Sometimes it takes the form of delicious portraits of hot dogs and hamburgers; in other cases, they're visually playful, as with his paintings of meat Mario and vegetable Luigi. Plus, on the less foodie front, he reimagines the punishment of the titan Prometheus using creatures from the film Prometheus.

If you spend a lot of time look through the t-shirts on Threadless, you may have seen Aled Lewis' frequently punny designs—and his charmingly goofball images featuring plastic toys and snarky text. But he has more fun images up on his website, including scenes of Battle Royale, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz reimagined as arcade games.
