We love this wonderful illustration promoting both the awesomeness of literacy and a brand new book by one of our favourite cartoonists, Jeffrey Brown.
Entitled Star Wars: Vader’s Little Princess, the book is a delightful collection of comics depicting the relationship between Darth Vader and Princess Leia had he been responsible for raising her. It’s a follow-up to the equally awesome Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son in which the Dark Lord of the Sith is playing an active role as father to young Luke.
This is Star Wars imagined in a way you’ve never seen before. It’s cute, tender, and very funny. We think it’s pretty awesome.

London-based photographer Luca di Filippo created an awesome photo series, entitled Daily Contaminations, which depicts insects made of components from discarded electronics skulking about our homes and investigating our lives.
“We never thought about what’s going on in our houses when we are out. They exist, they born from all the trashed electronic gadgets we used for years and years. Little “electronic creatures”, very smart, harmless but curious, very curious. They roam around looking for informations about our habits. Nobody knows why. Someone thinks they sell data to the highest bidder. And any kind of pesticide can’t stop them.”

Nukamari, a Spanish photographer and LEGO enthusiast, created this awesome photo depicting Darth Vader as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved character The Little Prince. His private planet is the Death Star and he even has his own precious little rose.
Now here’s an entertaining exercise for us all - read this beautiful quotation as though it were being spoken by Darth Vader:
“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
We recently posted about an artist named Joebot who created a wonderful series of mock covers for Little Golden Books based on video games. Thanks to Laughing Squid we’ve learned that another artist has done something similarly awesome, but with a completely different flavour:
Australian illustrator DrFaustusAU (previously featured here) created an awesome series of video game-themed book covers in the style of Dr. Seuss: “Under the Sea with Mister B! ” for BioShock, “Some Time to Kill in Silent Hill! ” for Silent Hill, and “If I was Dovahkiin” for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

We have fond memories of reading all sorts of Little Golden Books when we were little. In fact, they were among the very first books we remember being able to read all by ourselves, which is a pretty awesome moment in anyone’s life.
Joebot, a freelance illustrator and designer located in La Verne, CA, created an incredibly pleasing little series of mock covers for Little Golden Books about three great video games: “Me and My Big Daddy” for BioShock, “The Cake is a Lie” for Portal, and “The Littlest Dragonborn” for Skyrim.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Evan’s magnificent windows feature some of our favourite characters from video games such as Metroid, Halo, and Mega Man, superheroes like Iron Man, My Little Pony characters, and even the occasional TARDIS. Head over to Evan’s Etsy shop, MartianGlassWorks, to see more.
“I asked for a Kitchenaid mixer for Christmas, I pointed my wife toward a broken one on eBay so that I could refurbish it, as I was taking it apart I got some inspiration for the paint job and this is what came out of it, still needs a phase board for speed control and two decals to be applied to the sides but I couldn’t wait to share.”
We were really excited when we finally got our very own KitchenAid mixer, but looking at this awesome customized Boba Fett Mixer, painted by DeviantARTist tommyfilth, we’ve realized that just having and using the mixer isn’t enough. Now we’re scheming to come up with our own way to turn the mighty appliance into an outlet for geeky self-expression.
