Fan Art Fridays: Madea

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.

I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.

I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.

For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.

I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.

Fan Art Fridays: Rabbids

Since the Easter bunny is taking over this weekend, I thought it might be nice to give a different rabbit, or should I say Rabbids, some attention before then.

Rabbids are the French alien-rabbit stars of Nickelodeon’s Rabbids Invasion. They’re super weird and they get into all sorts of trouble, making them hilarious to watch.

Enjoy this fun piece of fan art by bschulze of a seemingly confused Rabbid staring down at a rabbit. Found on Deviant Art, I love how simple and witty this piece is!

Check out one of my fave scenes from Rabbids Invasion:

Fan Art Fridays: Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling

Or should I say Emma Stone and Jacob Staudenmaier?!

Promposal season seems to be off to a delightful start after Ryan Gosling’s doppelganger Jacob Staudenmaier asked Emma Stone to prom with a delightful La La Land inspired proposal.

Sadly, she won’t be able to go with Jacob Staudenmaier due to prior engagements in London, as she explained to him in a letter. She lessened the blow by adding “P.S. I do see Gosling around the eyes.”

Let’s just pretend this La La Land Golden Globes moment captured in cartoon form by Daniel Kordek (daekazu) over on Deviant Art is actually of Emma Stone and Jacob Staudenmaier. How amazing are those eyes?!

Fan Art Fridays: George W. Bush

How do I even begin this post?

Okay, so when I left work today I saw on my Facebook feed that this was one of the many things that happened during the inauguration this afternoon:

Thank you, former president George Bush, for giving us something to laugh about today.

Check out this equally hilarious wide-eyed political cartoon I found by Adrian Lubbers.

Fan Art Fridays: Lola Bunny

As if I needed another reminder as to how old I’m getting, Space Jam turned 20 this week.

How has it been 20 years already?!

In celebration, I’ve selected a piece of fan art I found on DeviantArt of Lola Bunny, the film’s sassiest character (in my opinion).

Called “Take It To the Hole,” Jessie J. Barboza (jbwarner) puts Lola Bunny in an underwater scene for his Underwater Babes of Toontown series. The expression on Lola Bunny’s face in the cartoon definitely makes this an intriguing piece of fan art. Why does she look so unimpressed while making this shot?

View the original fan art here, and reminisce with the Space Jam trailer.

Fan Art Fridays: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (Miam)

This morning I saw an article in my BlinkFeed reporting that a source said Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are planning to get married in Australia this summer.

Jaw. Drop.

OMJ this is major.

I am so freaking happy for them! I really hope they make it down the aisle together, and I look forward to seeing them all cute and lovey-dovey in photos all over the tabloids this summer.

I also can’t wait to see what Miley’s dress will look like!

Enjoy this Miam cartoon fan art by Jorge Luis on Instagram!

Fan Art Fridays: George Clooney

As many of you know, George Clooney turned 55 last week. No matter how old that man gets, he always seems to have a touch of youthfulness in his eyes.

Yesterday I saw this article on what his wife Amal got him for his birthday. Apparently she has a sense of humor because she got her husband a lawn mower.

Yes, you read that correctly: a lawn mower.

Looks like somebody’s trying to tell their husband that he’s got chores to do!

Enjoy this re-edit of Roy Piper‘s cartoon version of George Clooney. The re-edit, done by nerdboy69 on Deviant Art, uses HDR filters and special effects to create a grainy comic-strip look.

Happy belated birthday, George Clooney!

Fan Art Fridays: Snoop Dogg

Or is he still going by Snoop Lion?

Regardless, the rapper is the voice of a new nature/wildlife web series called Planet Snoop on Merry Jane.

I wish this was an April Fool’s joke, but I’m being serious. Who in their right mind would cast Snoop Dogg for this kind of voice role?

What is he going to do? Rap a narrative of a cub lion’s birth?! This is madness!

Because of this, I chose a cartoon version of Snoop Dogg I found on Pinterest a few weeks ago for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. The piece is by cartoonist Anthony Geoffroy.

I can’t tell which part of the cartoon is worse: the oversized nose, the exaggerated lips, or the elongated neck!

You can see the original fan art on Pinterest, watch the first episode of Planet Snoop below, and view more of Anthony Geoffroy’s work here.

Gallery Mondays: “Winter Break” by Adrian Tomine

Mid-winter break is over, kiddos.

Last week I found myself wandering into The POWERHOUSE Arena, a bookstore/exhibition space in Brooklyn, where I came across several prints by cartoonist Adrian Tomine.

Tomine’s “Winter Break” stood out to me the most for two reasons. The first was the fact that it was actually mid-winter break for NYC public school students, which I was constantly reminded of when I didn’t see the school crossing guard on the way to the train station during my morning commute. The second was the fact the cartoon depicts a juxtaposed snowy city scene with an ice cream truck waiting on the block for God knows who to buy ice cream from it in the freezing cold. “Winter Break” was originally published in the February 2, 2009 issue of The New Yorker.

What I love most about this print is the silhouette of the city in the background. The light green filter over the buildings give the print a serene touch.

This print is available for purchase on Adrian Tomine’s website, and of course, at The POWERHOUSE Arena.

Fan Art Fridays: Pride and Prejudice‘s Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy

Pride and Prejudice and Zombiesa film inspired by Jane Austen’s book Pride and Prejudice and Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 zombie infused novel version, is in theaters starting today.

I’m not sure what would possess Grahame-Smith or ‎Burr Steers, the director of the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, to do such a thing.

They ruined all that was good about Austen’s 19th century romance. She’s probably rolling in her grave right now.

Anyway, I found this lovely cartoon version of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy over on DeviantArt to ease the distress caused every time I see that damned trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies while watching television.

The cartoon was done by viria13. I just love how incredibly handsome yet distant Darcy looks in the scene she chose to draw!
