MY-SUPERHERO-VW-T1-Punisher-Chungkong

Chungkong, a Netherlands-based designer, has been creating some terrific pop-culture-themed artworks for quite some time now. His awesome new art project is a mash-up of the iconic Volkswagen T1 camper van with popular comic book superheroes. Chungkong has brilliantly incorporated several signature design elements from the costumes of the superheroes on the exteriors of the vans. Even the license plates of the vans have been cleverly given personalized numbers, which just so happen to be the year in which the particular superhero character was created by its maker(s).

The artist, on his project:

Superman is fortunate. He can fly without the need of any kind of vehicle. Other superheroes aren’t quite as lucky, having spent their childhoods as mere mortals before getting a spider bite or having their parents murdered. Most of them required something a little extra to transport them around the world.

And let’s be honest, there are some awesome rides around in the superhero universe. But what if their rides weren’t as cool like the Christian Bale Batmobile or the kickass Mark 3 Iron Man Suit, what if their rides were ragged T1 Volkswagen Vans…

You can check out more fun illustrations on the artist’s website. Select prints of his works are available at his online store.

Romanian freelance illustrator and designer Paula Duta (previously) continues her fantastic obsession with creepy-crawlies with her latest series of ‘Insect Alphabet’ illustrations. The alphabets in the series are made up of exquisitely-intricate colored pencil drawings of a variety of insects and even a couple of arachnids thrown in for good measure.

Philadelphia-based sculptor Stacey Lee Webber shared some images of her latest sculptures made with found materials and old coins.

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Webber’s works are a joyous, hands-on tribute to her blue-collar lineage. She hand-cuts, bends and melds coins, screws and other found materials into beautiful objects worthy of admiration. As a matter of fact, I was quite astonished to find that some of the tools in her “The Craftsmen Series” were made only with pennies.

From her site:

I cherish working with found materials whose history is physically evident.  Imagine a copper penny lying on a sewer grate.  On that stamped coin there are dents, scratches, a dull patina, and a worn down Abraham Lincoln.  Each of these inconsistencies is evidence that it has been passed through the hands of countless people. When that penny is picked up and used in a sculpture the new object is layered with rich stories of struggle and triumph.

Webber’s sculptures will be on show at the 2015 American Craft Council Show in Baltimore from February 18-22, 2015. You can visit her site to check out more of her sculptures, jewelry and vessels. You can also buy her jewelry or order a custom piece at her online store

Apart from being an UIUX designer at Electronics Arts Square KK, the Tokyo-based Saki Murakami also happens to be a terrific artist who creates wonderfully quirky and surreal illustrations.

The above illustration titled “Kitten Queen” was one her artworks exhibited at the ‘Scream Queen Filmfest Tokyo’. Murakami used the bob haired silhouette-mascot of the festival as the inspiration to create the creepy-cute character. The 11.69”  x 8.26” piece was drawn using a 0.05mm oil-based ink pen, and is now on sale at $300.

You can check out more of her illustrations on her blog, as well as her galleries on Behance.
