“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.”
This awesome painting of The Grinch was created by artist and illustrator Jason Edmiston. We love how well it captures both the Grinch’s hatred of Christmastime as well as his glee at hatching a plan to ruin the holiday for every last Who down in Whoville.
If the fictional worlds of Charles Dickens and Dr. Seuss were merged, there’s little doubt that Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch would be best friends. That is, assuming that a miserly curmudgeon and a surly, heartless recluse could stand even each other’s tetchy company.

Llamas + Mona Lisa = Mona Llama = Awesome
Santa Rosa, California-based artist Sharon Eisley created the Mona Llama for Mona, a group art hosted by the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. The Mona show features work by an international selection of artists who’ve each had a go at recreating Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece in their own style.

The Mona Lisa has been acclaimed as “the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world.” In this exhibition, a selection of international contemporary artists are taking on that tradition and re-creating the well-known masterpiece with their own artistic variations.

The exhibit runs until August 8, 2013. Visit Laughing Squid and the Modern Eden Gallery website to view more pieces from the show.

You never know what you’ll see at San Diego Comic-Con each year, and, of all those things, what you’ll never be able to un-see. This year one of those things was a giant-headed Ron Jeremy comforting an extremely fussy giant-headed baby.

Photographed by Alex Nicholson, these disturbingly awesome Hyperflesh masks are the work of Denver-based artist Landon Meier (previously featured here).

Seattle-based photographer David Ngo travels all over the US to attend anime and comic book conventions where he takes countless photos of cosplayers in their element.
At the 2011 Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia, David encountered this awesome group of cosplayers each fabulously dressed as a different character from Pee-wee’s Playhouse. There’s gorgeous Miss Yvonne, Jambi the wish-granting genie, Chairry the affectionate anthropomorphic armchair, Pterri - Pee-wee’s sensitive Pteranodon friend, and of course Pee-wee Herman himself. It’s so wonderful, we can’t stop smiling.

Holy rubber chickens, do we ever love Big Red Ape’s super awesome Hellboy cosplay. The costume she made is impressively detailed and her pose perfectly captures Hellboy’s distinctive demeanour.

"This is me in my first ever Cosplay costume Hellboy. I wanted to play homage to both the comic character as well as the movie adaptation and include many details and props that are usually over looked.
I just won Manga UK’s best female cosplay too!”

Big Red Ape Cosplay, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you! Mike Mignola must be so proud.

Portland, Oregon-based photographer Mako Miyamoto (aka Neon Werewolf) explores the wonderful lives of Wookiees through a series of playful and entertaining photos.

It seems that those Wookiees who aren’t off adventuring as sidekick to Han Solo appear to spend their most of their time simply having fun together. And they’re really good at it. They go skating, hang out at lively picnics and parties, practice yoga and spar. But that’s not all. Follow Mako Miyamoto’s awesome ongoing photo series here on Tumblr.
