Fan Art Fridays: Nakia from ‘Black Panther’

The day that fans of the Marvel Universe have been waiting for is finally here! Black Panther is officially in theaters today, guys!

I am totally going to see it when the theater clears out of all the people that cannot wait to see it this weekend. Trying to be patient until the end of February is going to be hard, but I’m gonna do it.

I’m most excited to see Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia in the film. I found this really cool fan art of Nakia on Deviant Art while looking for something to feature on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

Created by Cara Stratton (Erynnia on Deviant Art), the fan art is inspired by this photo of Nakia and Shuri (played by Letitia Wright). I love how Lupita Nyongo’s cheekbones shine through. Contour. On. Fleek.

Fan Art Fridays: Hank Green

Today I found out that Hank Green, brother of John Green, has a book coming out in the fall of 2018!

Full disclosure: I have never read any of John Green’s books, but I plan to at least read Paper Towns this year. Maybe I’ll even buy Hank Green’s book, titled An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which will be released on September 25, 2018.

In honor of this awesome literary news, I’ve decided to feature this pencil sketch of Hank Green by Ariana Filippini (CaptnArrri) on Deviant Art. The hair is so spot on. His facial expression is also quite accurate.

Fan Art Fridays: Lil’ Jon

I though it was a joke when I saw the tweets about Lil’ Jon being named the new CEO of Papa John’s Pizza. I really did. So I Googled some news articles to see how many people fell for it and it turns out that IT’S TRUE.

 

Are these people serious? Is this temporary? They’re totally going to hire a legit CEO with restaurant experience, right?

I can’t stare at the computer for too long because of my headaches, but enjoy this fan art of Papa John’s new CEO I found on Deviant Art by nosmelone.

Fan Art Fridays: Freddie Highmore

ABC’s The Good Doctor was on hiatus this week, which was so saddening because I was legit lying in bed waiting for Dr. Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Higmore) to appear n my screen on Monday night to no avail.

The show is only a few weeks old and I am hooked! Its partially because I’ve loved Freddie Highmore’s acting ever since seeing him as a kid in August Rush back in 2007. The Good Doctor is generally a well written medical drama, in my opinion. Freddie Highmore just adds to the show’s appeal.

To get me through until Monday, November 13th’s episode of The Good Doctor, I’ve decided to feature Freddie Highmore for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This piece of digital fan art by Oshin Padhye (OshinP) on DeviantArt features the actor smiling that sly grin he always does. Classic.

Fan Art Fridays: Roselyn Sanchez

National Hispanic Heritage Month began today, September 15! To celebrate, I’ll be posting fan art of Hispanic/Latino celebs all month long.

First up is actress Roselyn Sanchez. She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I absolutely loved her as Carmen Luna on Devious Maids. Her character is basically like the one friend you need in your girl group to keep the gossip interesting.

Roselyn Sanchez is expecting a baby soon, and she just released a children’s book earlier this month called Sebi and the Land of Cha Cha Cha.

Enjoy this digital fan art I found of the actress over on Deviant Art by Ghanaian artist luxuryzz (Denzel Oduro).

He captured her smolder so well!

This week we learned that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child, so I just HAVE to feature the royal couple for this week’s Fan Art Fridays!

Obviously I’m excited about this news, but some Brits aren’t :/

To celebrate, I found this life-like portrait of Will and Kate over on Deviant Art. Created by Soul of David (David Tercias) the digital piece was inspired by this photo of the two.

I just can’t get over how much hair William has lost since they started having children. Look at how full his hair was back then!
