Last week we featured a selection of exquisite works of cut paper art by a Japanese Kirie artist named Akira Nagaya. Today we learned that Nagaya also creates awesome cut-out depictions of beloved Anime, manga, cartoon and comic book characters using individual Post-it notes.
Visit Akira Nagaya’s Facebook page to view more of his playful pop culture Post-it cut-outs.

Today the Department of Marvelous Makeup pays a visit to London-based hair and makeup artist Laura Jenkinson, who has fun using her talents to transform her own lips into playful depictions of all sorts of pop culture characters, ranging from Shrek, Mr. T and Cartman to a host of Looney Tunes and Disney characters. We love how she even turned herself upside-down to accommodate the long face of Wallace from Wallace & Gromit.
Follow Laura Jenkinson’s Instagram account to see many more of her creative cosmetic transformations.
Keep your Christian Bales and your Michael Keatons, our Batman will always be Adam West. Sure, his Batman isn’t as brooding or dark as those guys, but they never did the Batusi. Hallmark has created this ornament of Adam West as Batman [Buy on Amazon] featured on the cover of Life Magazine. We’re not positive, but it seems to have captured him in the middle of a celebratory bat-dance when he saw the ratings for his TV show.
Holy merch, Batman, this is the perfect bat-ornament for your bat-tree.
Rosemary Mosco, field naturalist and artist responsible for the creator of the webcomic bird and moon (previously featured here) just shared this delightful illustration that we love because it’s a terrific reminder of everyday awesomeness that’s all around us.
A year ago I got to illustrate one of the endings in Ryan North’s brilliant Hamlet choose-your-own-path book To Be or Not To Be. These are all things you may be able to find outside right now (if you can bear to put down this amazing book).

It was nice to meet some of you at SDCC. This craft-project would have bee useful at times during that humid span of days. I recommend printing out on sturdy stock!

These beautiful handmade stained glass panels are direct recreations of comic book panels created by Panovanator. The first depicticts Carol Danvers as/in Captain Marvel, (written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, art by Jamie McKelvie) and the second is Clint Barton as/in Hawkeye (written by Matt Fraction, art by David Aja). They’re gorgeous, geektastic tributes to two awesome comics.

It’s high time we shared more artwork by Australian illustrator DrFaustusAU (previously featured here), who reimagines movie, comic book and video game titles and characters as book covers rendered in the unmistakable style of Dr. Seuss.

Art + Science = Awesome
The last time we visited the Department of Microscopic Marvels we were astonished by sandcastles etched onto individual grains of sand. Today’s wee wonder is the world’s smallest comic strip, etched onto a single strand of human hair. Entitled “Juana Knits The Planet”, the tiny comic was created by Claudia Puhlfürst in collaboration with the organizers of EHSM2, “the most cutting-edge DIY and open-source conference” for hackers and makers in Hamburg, Germany.
Claudia drew the comic and Andrew Zonenberg used a technique called focused ion beam (FIB) etching, which uses “a sharp jet of matter thinner and more delicate than a laser beam,” to engrave the comic onto one human hair.
Elsa Rhae is a Kansas City-based video editor/producer and awesome character makeup artist. She’s completely self-taught and able to transform herself into a fantastic variety of characters, including instantly recognizable faces from comic books, video games, movies and tv shows, spending between one and three hours on each dramatic transformation.

We had a blast at the first day of Emerald City Comic Con. We brought Mr. Bacon and Bigfoot for photo ops and we’re giving away FREE stickers. As you can see, even Spider-Man couldn’t resist taking a picture with Sasquatch.
Also, we couldn’t resist posting some of our favorite costumes. The Vision and Scarlet Witch are wearing the costumes we wish were in the next Avengers movie. But, our absolute favorite of the day is the Joker/Harley Quinn mashup with The Big Lebowski. Why so, like, serious, man?
