    Artist: Damian Fulton



    Damian Fulton is fascinated by the dichotomy and duality of Los Angeles seaside culture. The proximity of one of the world’s most diverse and congested cities to the Pacific coast provides fertile material for Fulton’s dark take on the California dream. Perhaps it’s in the water.

    Quick Pic: The Mechanical Predator

    The Mechanical Predator


    This life size model of the Predator was just awesome. He's on display for all to view in this little store on Crown Street in Wollongong Australia. He was made entirely out of spare parts like car engines and the odd mechanical component.

    Guess whose birthday it was yesterday? That's right, everyone's favorite nerd chick.

    Day broke into geek stardom for her role as Vi on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and has cemented her place in our hearts in her role as Codex in the kick-ass web series The Guild and then as Penny in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

    Needless to say, Day gets a lot of love from fans. Below is a round-up of tribute art gathered from around Deviant Art. Enjoy!

    Alright, these aren't real file cabinets, they're a texture for Counter-Strike or Half-Life 2 created by Nintendofu, but if I had a set of office filing cabinets, I might just take a day to stencil them like this.

    Doctor Hoo by ~pu-sama

    Just when you thought the chibi fan art couldn't get any cuter... Evidently, drawing Doctor Who as an owl is a whole thing on Deviant Art now.  At least, it seems to be growing in popularity.  I'm personally very fond of the Tom Baker Hoos.
