As a “child of the 80’s”, artist Billy Butcher took inspiration from the new wave era he grew up with and merged them the iconic heroes of DC Comics.
As a child of the 80’s I was heavily influenced by everything from saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics – all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices.
The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are. Who are your heroes?
It’s kind of weird, but Billy Idol makes one helluva Aquaman.
X-Men: Days of the Future Past director, Bryan Singer tweeted our first look at the lovely, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique. I have to admit that while I wasn’t on board with the original look in X-Men: First Class, I am in awe of how beautiful Mystique looks in DOTFP. This look is much more refined than in First Class and is better at bridging the gap from First Class to Rebecca Romjin’s Mystique. Also, it didn’t hurt that Jennifer Lawrence is drop-dead gorgeous like Rebecca Romjin.

I really love it when artists are able to draw inspiration from something and create something really cool. Designer/illustrator, Kelsey Michele created these awesome illustrations of gowns inspired by The Avengers. I love how clean the designs are and that they aren’t very “costumey”. I would think it would be cool to see some of these designs in real life. Great work Kelsey!
You can check out more of Kelsey’s work at her DeviantArt page.
Am I a sucker for everything and anything related to Disney? Yes. Yes I am. This probably explains why I was floored when I saw digital artist, Kathryn Hudson’s (AKA spicysteweddemon) amazing collection of “Disney Prom” illustrations. The thing I really appreciate about this set is that Kathryn put together an brilliant set of illustrations of iconic Disney characters with her own stylized twist. It’s also a big plus that she gave much love to lesser popular Disney animated features like Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Tarzan. From the look of Eric, I hope Ariel is packin’ some pepper spray. Keep up the amazing work Kathryn!
