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.

Aris Papamarkakis is an autodidactic jewelry designer based in Greece. He designs his intricately beautiful pendants using specialized programs, and then sends off the files to Shapeways to have them printed. Papamarkasis says that his inspiration comes mainly from two different sources – nature and mathematical art. Stars, butterflies and flowers are some of the recurring motifs in his works.

While his current pendants have been printed out using sintered nylon plastic (a strong and flexible polyamide material), he promises that he will soon be expanding his line to other materials like silver and gold. For now, you can buy his pendants at his online store.

The-Gambler-Saul-Bass-Inspired-Movie-Poster-02

Creative agency New! were given the assignment to create posters for a Lithuanian movie called “The Gambler,” which premiered last week at the San Sebastian International Film Festival. The film, directed by Ignas Jonynas, tells the story of medical workers who gamble and play God with the lives of patients under their care.

The agency decided to do something radical to make the posters stand out amongst the many others at the festival. While some movie studios spend thousands of dollars jazzing up their promotional media with all sorts of gimmicky effects, New! worked on making the quality of photos used in the posters as low resolution as they could get away with.
