Jenny Parks, the creative mind behind “Doctor Mew” is back with a new collection of illustrations featuring a cast of felines dressed up as members of The Avengers! My favorite out of the bunch has to be Cat Hulk. It just makes sense! RIGHT?! You can follow Jenny Parks’ amazing work on Jenny Parks Illustration!

Remember that crazy “Star Wars Filibuster” by Patton Oswald on Parks and Recreation? Well, as incredibly epic as that was, it’s even BETTER animated thanks to Issac Moore! I said this before and I’ll say it again. I would still pay to watch Oswald’s vision for Star Wars: Episode VII.

starwarsrebels

HUZZZZAAAAAHHHHHH!!! The world was shocked when it was announced that Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be canceled after next season. Well, now there is something to rejoice as Dave Filoni has announced that a new series is currently in development called, Star Wars Rebels! Star Wars Rebel will premiere in 2014 as an one hour special on Disney Channel and then move into DisneyXD as a regular series.

The series is described as set in the time between Episode III and Episode IV. The “Rebels” are in uprising as they take on the newly founded, Galactic Empire. The thing that really got me excited has to be the description of the new animated style of the series. They will go away from the unique look of the Clone Wars and move to a style that is a nod to the original Star Wars concept art done by Ralph McQuarrie. That is very exciting. There is always word that some characters that were loved in The Clone Wars may make their way to Rebels like Ashoka Tano. Hopefully, Rebels will reveal the faith of some of our favorite characters post-Order 66.

Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman joins Dave Filoni as executive producers. Star Wars Rebels drops in 2014.

Ahhh… now THIS is pretty cool. Rhett & Link wrote and directed this very whimsical short musical staring little middle school student singing about the world of Star Trek. My favorite part of the video has to be all the cool props and sets. The only thing that confused me was probably not being able to tell if Spock was a boy or a girl. Damn that hair!

Polygon released a very interesting short documentary called Human Angle: Cosplaying the Part, which follows the story of cosplayer, cosplay builder, author, and photographer Ger Tysk. The documentary looks into Ger Tysk’s experiences diving into the cosplay culture and how she was evolved and embraced cosplay as a daily part of her life. These experiences are both positive and negative as cosplay is still misunderstood by people inside and outside the geek community.

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!

If you want the world to take notice of your skills as a digital artist, this just might be the way to do it. Xander David-Hugh AKA Neon Visual, an “undiscovered UK AFX artist” put together this amazing fan-made video of the iconic TARDIS opening for Doctor Who. If you follow me on Twitter, you will know my dislike for the newest version of the opening and as a fan of Doctor Who and digital art, I can’t help, but want to help spread the word about Xander’s video so that Steven Moffat and BBC takes notice of this guy’s amazing work.
