Vanja Mrgan, a talented illustrator from Croatia, is a self-confessed “geek and an all around alright kinda guy.”
Vanja’s latest series of illustrations feature (normally clean-shaven) pop culture icons sporting thick, luxuriant beards.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Hilarious illustrations by Patrick Moberg.
So damn true. The other vices are here. [Warning: NSFW language]

Eat your heart out, Tim Burton.
These were some of the awe inspiring illustrations made by Salvador Dali for a 1969 edition of Alice in Wonderland, published by Marcenas Press and Random House.
A fantastic blog with illustrations by comic book artists of their favorites writers and authors.
Just loved this illustration of Jules Verne (one of my favorite authors) by Ted McKeever.
Just how good is this guy?
The artworks of Ben Turnbull, a London-based artist, are a statement on “the contemporary American political system.” He takes familiar symbols from American pop culture, and subverts them to unsettle and provoke the viewer.

“A Ten Million Dollar Toy” is the latest art project from SpY, the Madrid based street art and graffiti artist.
He sent this picture of a “kidnapped” bunny to the Toy2R factory, along with a ransom note for ten million dollars.
More art intervention projects and other madness at his site.
The imagery in Greg Ferris’ layered collages is a curious combination of the organic and the inorganic, the modern and the traditional. His art explores the areas where unrelated objects intersect, and how, in doing so, they affect each other.
Snip from an interview:
In a work of art, I position objects in ways that will affect their neighboring bodies, like musical notes create intervals. The images and their placements express my interpretation of topics such as science and tradition, which I’ve been taught are more complicated ways of saying that at the center of the universe there’s two tiny bits of something bumping against each other, and it goes on much the same from there..
Besides being a talented artist, Ferris is also a musician and an avid skateboarder.
