Use The Force & Click #FanArtForRose

Let’s face it, there are bullies and opinionated people everywhere, even in a galaxy far, far away.  However, when people single out, and continually attack someone on social media, well, that is NEVER acceptable.

Kelly-Marie-Tran

Star Wars fans around the globe have been coming to the side of actress Kelly Marie Tran after she has been on the defense against this type of social media harassment.  Director Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill have gotten involved and shown their undying support of this lovely actress.

Now the art community is joining in with a new fan art campaign called “Fan Art For Rose.”  Simply click the hash tag #fanartforrose on Twitter or Instagram and you can see all kinds of art dedicated to her character, “Rose Tico,” in “The Last Jedi.”  Here is a look at just SOME of our favorites.

Sony’s New Trailer For “Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse” Has Us Counting The Days Till Christmas

Sony has a big year planned with Spider-Man related releases but after seeing the new trailer for “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse,” we are on the fence with which one we are more pumped to see.  (The other movie being “Venom” with Tom Hardy.)

This time out we get a look at teenager Mile Morales as he discovers he isn’t the ONLY one with spider-like abilities.  The film looks unlike ANY other comic book themed movie we have ever seen.

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.”

The movie touts an impressive voice cast including: Shameik Moore, as the voice of Spider-Man/Miles Morales, Jake Johnson as Miles’ mentor Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, and Lily Tomlin as Peter Park’s Aunt May.

Official, Limited Edition, Darkstar X Nagel Capsule

Patrick Nagel has one of the most identifiable, minimalist art styles ever and even though he passed away in 1984 at the young age of 38, his work still inspires many today.  It was his work for Playboy and the cover of Duran Duran’s 1981 album cover, “Rio,” that catapulted him into the mainstream.  If you were around in the 80’s it’s a guarantee you’ve seen his work.
