Fan Art Fridays: Happy Birthday, Jim Parsons

Today our favorite grumpy nerd from The Big Bang Theory turned 44!

Jim Parsons is quite a character, both in and off screen. You’ve gotta love it when an actor’s personality shines through his work.

On honor of his birthday, I’ve decided to feature some fan art I found of the actor by rgbcn over on Instagram. The black and white sketch captures Jim Parsons’ pursed lips perfectly.

Happy Birthday, Jim Parsons! Check out more fan art by rgbcn at www.instagram.com/rgbcn.

Fan Art Fridays: Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.

How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.

Fan Art Fridays: Jim Chapman Draws Troye Sivan

Sometimes I forget that YouTuber Jim Chapman used to draw, so when I saw this video he posted earlier in the week of himself drawing fellow YouTuber Troye Sivan, I was super hyped!

After asking fans what he should draw in a video, someone tweeted Jim a photo of Troye Sivan, to which he reckons looked “so delicious.” And so we have it: a sketch of Troye by the talented Jim Chapman.

Enjoy the video below!

Fan Art Fridays: Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney was denied entry to Tyga’s Grammys after-party on Monday night and it’s seriously just the rudest thing I’ve heard all week.

Like, why you gotta be so mean?! Gosh.

Anyway, Paul, if you and your friends want you can totally come chill with me on my 22nd birthday in May.

I picked this sketch of Paul McCartney I found on Deviant Art to cheer up anyone that also felt this was wrong. The sketch was created by Vinicius Costa and it was inspired by this April 1965 Harpers Bazaar photo of Paul McCartney in a space suit. He looks just a tad bit sad in this sketch, doesn’t he?

Fan Art Fridays: Jada Pinkett Smith

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Spike Lee’s decision to boycott the Oscar’s this year due to the lack of African-Americans nominated for awards in the past two award shows. The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite is becoming very popular these days.

It still blows my mind that they would chose a host (Chris Rock) of an ethnicity not represented at the show. Like, how does that make any sense?!

In light if this, I can’t wait to hear his opening monologue.

Because of Jada Pinkett Smith’s bold move in making the video about the subject over on Facebook, I decided to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to her. This sketch was done by Greg Hand, inspired by Pinkett’s character Fish Mooney on Gotham. Her stern lip is just the right amount of fierce.

Fan Art Fridays: The 1975’s Matt Healy

Today The 1975 released the music video for their new single “UGH!” After watching it this morning, I just had to make Matt Healy the subject of this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

The music video was directed by Adam Powell, who also directed The 1975’s “Girls.” He plays with a lot of psychedelic lighting in the video, bringing the song’s ostentatiousness to a new level.

I just can’t get over how great Matt Healy’s curls look in the music video and in this fan art sketch of him I found on Tumblr by Melanie. Definitely loving the way that shaved portion of his hair grew back!

The 1975 are always fun to watch in music videos, and I hope I can see them live one day. It would be so awesome to hear some of the songs from their upcoming album I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it performed live!

See the original fan art here, and enjoy the music video below!

Fan Art Fridays: Shia LaBeouf at #ALLMYMOVIES

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days, you’ll already know that Shia LaBeouf watched all his movies in reverse chronological order from November 10th to November 12th at the Angelika Film Center as part of his latest performance art project called #ALLMYMOVIES. Admission was free, so you can imagine how many people were waiting to enter that theater. The whole thing was live streamed, so we had a front row seat of Shia’s face the entire three days.

A fan in what looks like the concession area or lobby of the theater sketched an awesome drawing of Shia watching his movies. The sketch has a slightly courtroom cartoon look to it, which is ironic because in a way the audience and Shia himself were like judges evaluating his filmography during #ALLMYMOVIES.

As I mentioned last week, every Fan Art Fridays during NaNoWriMo will also have a fan fiction presented at the end, so here’s this week’s!

Fan Art Fridays: Happy 23rd Birthday, Nick Jonas!

If you knew me back in middle school, you’d know that I was one of those overly-obsessed “Nick chicks.” I was about 13 years old when I found out about the Jonas Brothers, and I loved Nick Jonas’ curly hair so much that I would dream of growing old with him and running my fingers through his hair when his curls turned gray.

Don’t judge me! Even Demi Lovato admits that he had the best Jo Fro!

Now that I’m older and I realize that I’m not actually going to marry a celebrity, I’ve calmed down about Nick, but he still has a special place in my heart—even though he doesn’t let his curls grow out anymore.

Nick Jonas turned 23 this week (September 16th), so I decided to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to him. This sketch of Nick I found on Deviant Art captures his curls just the way I like ’em.

Fan Art Fridays: Our Newest Bond Boy, Sam Smith

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.

Me likey.
