Even though Pierce Brosnan will always be my favorite James Bond, I am deeply saddened that we lost our 1973 Bond, Sir Roger Moore, this week.
In remembrance, this week’s Fan Art Friday’s goes out to Sir Moore. Enjoy this sketch of the actor as James Bond by Patricio Carbajal, also known as Pat. I can’t get over how perfect the hair is in this rough sketch!
See more of Pat’s art at www.patart-pat.blogspot.com, and enjoy one of Sir Roger Moore’s James Bond scenes below.
Yesterday I started seeing the posters for the new James Bond movie, Spectre, popping up everywhere in the city. I started to think I was going crazy when I saw that Day of the Dead skeleton in the background of the poster art, but by the third poster I came across I was convinced that this was real.
This week’s Fan Art Fridays serves as my escape from this odd poster art. I’m just so used to the sleek, modern look of the James Bond franchise that I had to Google some images from the older movies to feel sane again.
I found this piece of fan art on DeviantArt which I believe is of a scene from the Casino Royale film back in 2006. The embossed fan art features Daniel Craig doing the signature “Bond sleeve cuff tug,” and Caterina Murino to his left in a gorgeous red dress. She kind of looks like Lana Del Rey a bit.
If you want a good laugh about the decision to put the Day of the Dead skeleton in the Spectre movie poster, check out this hilarious article over on The Awl.

Earlier this week, Sam Smith confirmed he is singing the theme for the next James Bond movie, Spectre.
What?! He lied to us back in July about not being the one singing the theme. Jeez. That must have been some strict contract agreement he was under.
The song is called “Writing’s on the Wall,” and we’ll get to hear it on September 25th. Spectre comes out in theaters on November 6th. So. Much. Excitement!
I was searching for some Sam Smith fan art to celebrate the news, and I found this wonderful sketch by sean_art on Instagram. He looks totally Bond-tastic with his hand on his chin and the popped collar.
