Death Star Spray Paint Stencil Art by Rebecca Gallaher aka “beckosaurus” on Etsy
The walls of my Nerd Cave are what my wife often calls “busy.” I may be a little dense, but I don’t think she means it as a compliment. But however you want to describe my art collection, it’s all done by design. I love the crowded look. I don’t necessarily design the room for other people, but I do enjoy watching folks walk in for the first time and not quite know what they should look at first. Or second…Some people end up looking like a kitten watching a laser dot bounce around.
One of the things I’ve tried to do in choosing art is to look for things that fall outside the realm of traditional rectangular, framed art. I want different. I like oddly shaped pieces, 3-D art, and such.
Recently, while lying around contemplating my life, I typed “Death Star” into the Etsy search box and stumbled upon Rebecca Gallaher’s Death Star art stenciled/spray-painted onto an old vinyl LP. My Spidey sense went off with that “I gotta have it” vibe so in the cart it went. You know the rest. My almost fully operational battle station arrived last week and I love it…
Zod print by Dave Berns
What’s up folks? Just a quick one showing off some new art I recently acquired from artist Dave Berns.
Greetings to my loyal readers. Sitting here on the couch after another mind numbing day in my office dungeon with a tax audit sprinkled on for extra flavor. Oh, your house burned down? Yeah, if you could go ahead and prove it, that’d be great. Anyway, heres a quick update of what’s been happening here in my corner of Nerd Nation.
Hellboy and Ivan by Jesse Kennedy
Here’s another recent purchase off Etsy for the Nerd Cave walls. It’s a one-of-a-kind mixed-media sculpture by the talented Jesse Kennedy from Washington. Depicting one of my favorite scenes from the original Hellboy movie, the sculpture really captures the look and bad attitudes of both characters. I was looking for something to fit on a small area of bare wall next to my shelving units and this cool, little piece of art fills the bill perfectly.
Jesse has a nice selection of other pieces inspired by different realms of pop culture. His renditions of Joker are particularly cool as are his Lord of the Rings characters. Not sure if he’s already done them, but I suspect his versions of the Balrog, Sauron, and the Ringwraiths would be pretty sweet. I highly recommend Jesse and his Sculptorio store on Etsy if you’re looking for a cool, one-of-a-kind touch for your nerd cave art collection.
Bam! by WoodWearbyAndrea
I discovered Etsy a couple weeks ago. And I liked it so much, I bought the company. Well, not really. But I have made some great buys already and machinations to start my own Etsy store are underway as you read this.
