The Department of Awesome Parenting just got even more awesome thanks to the ongoing efforts of an inspired pair of artist parents in the Kirby family. Every single day they decorate napkins for their two sons’ school lunches with an endless parade of characters from movies, comics, cartoons, and some fantastic character mashups as well.
"The napkin images are shared at lunch with their friends and teachers. The napkins are themed to the happenings in or around all of lives."
The images you see here are just a small sampling of their illustrated napkins. Follow them here on Tumblr for a complete gallery and to keep up with each new creation.
It’s a delightfully unconventional play on classic colouring books. But jeez, we never realized that Jessica Rabbit was suffering from such severe spinal curvature. Ouch.

Ohio balloon artist Jeff Wright of Wright Entertainment (previously featured here) has created an awesome new balloon suit. We’ve already seen him decked out as Balloon Buzz Lightyear and Balloon Mario riding Balloon Yoshi. Now Jeff is back in all his inflatable splendour as Balloon Iron Man.
Jeff, who works as a volunteer in an orphanage in Bolivia, jumped at the challenge — and the result is stunning. Made up of hundreds of balloons carefully intertwined, he has artfully recreated the legendary red and yellow suit with meticulous attention to detail.
Jeff comments: “I was trying to decide what costume to do next when I got an email from blinkbox. I’m a huge fan of the Iron Man films and couldn’t resist the challenge. After some careful planning I was ready and asked a friend to film the whole process right here in Bolivia.”
We recently featured an awesome LEGO sculpture of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that was on display at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. Here are two more amazing superhero sculptures created by LEGO’s Master Builders: a 7-foot-tall Superman and 6.5-foot-tall Iron Man. It looks like Iron Man’s eyes and arc reactor actually light up too. Super awesome!

Spiritual Hero is an awesome series of sleek digital renderings, created by Italian artist Antonio Strafella, envisioning comic book, movie, and cartoon characters as beautiful religious icons. He says of his own work:
“These icons have various aspects in common: saints do miracles and superheroes have superpowers, both are venerated, opening the conflict between faith and zealotry.”

Utah-based blogger Damon McNeil of Because It Amuses Me came up with an ingenious costume idea for his company’s Halloween party. While trying to choose which Marvel superhero from The Avengers to dress up as he was struck with an awesome solution - why choose one when he could dress up as all of them?
From head to toe Damon is wearing/wielding:
It’s a wonder the ground doesn’t tremble beneath his feet.
Artist Hillary White (previously featured here) has created an extensive and completely awesome series of paintings, entitled Pop Reinterpretation, for which she beautifully recreates painting by the Old Masters depicting a wide variety of pop culture icons in place of the original subjects.
R2-D2 becomes Francois-Xavier Fabre’s Portrait Of A Man, Kermit the Frog becomes Frans Hals’ Portrait of a Young Woman, Optimus Prime becomes Anthony Van Dyck’s Self Portrait With Sunflower, and so on.
Hillary has painted so many of these wonderful portraits, it’s an almost unbearably awesome accomplishment. If you like these even half as much as we do, check out the entire Pop Reinterpretation gallery to see the rest.
It’s Pop Art Meets High Art on Geyser of Awesome!
Jenny Sparks and her husband Lars made brilliant use of a pair of our Giant Googly Eyes here in Seattle last weekend at the Emerald City Comicon. They mounted the eyes on a stick and asked cosplayers to pose for photos with them. The results are nothing short of awesome. Even our own underpants-wearing squirrel got in on the action.
The photos you see here are just the tip of the iceberg. Click here to view the complete set.
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.
By day Michael McLane works as a metallurgical engineer at a steel mill, but by night he’s an artist transforming iconic pop culture imagery into awesome stained-glass lamps. What’s more, he creates these gorgeously geeky objects the same way Louis Comfort Tiffany created his own world famous lamps back in the 1870s — by painstakingly assembling them one piece at a time on a 3D form. Each piece takes between 40 to 60 hours to complete.
