These map portraits just way awesome. Who uses maps anymore? Isn’t that what Google is for? 😀 So Ingrid Dabringer decided to take old maps and make artwork out of them. These are just really cool. View more map portraits at the geekosystem link or check out her wordpress blog hereand see more cool art! [via geekosystem]
Last week io9has a lovely little bit on the history of Art Nouveau and then posted some geeky heroes done in that particular style. So I did some digging and found out that Art Nouveu (French for “new art”) is a curvaceous, organic, and floral style of art. Today’s art is greatly inspired by a poster of Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939). His influence is seen today on fan art, posters, and even Googles Doodles. Museums have dedicated whole areas to the theme, a style that influences all areas of art and life, not just geeky hero drawings. Check out the museum stuff here. Speaking of Big Damn Heroes, you can now pre-order Firefly Art Nouveau prints here. [via io9]
