Stranger Things was one of those series that brings you right back to your childhood (kids from the 80’s of course). With all the elements I always loved from the 80’s; Winona Ryder, the fashion, the moody synth from the opening track, all the 80’s classics in the soundtrack and of course, the influences. Very nostalgic!
It definitely seems like movies such as “The Goonies”, “E.T”,”Alien”, “Carrie”, “The Evil Dead”, “Silent Hill”, “Poltergeist” etc… were a rather inspired choice of basis the Duffer brothers used for Stranger Things.
As with all series that really blows its’ fans mind, there are those really talented fans that use the show as inspiration for their art. I chose my favourites that I found around the web, check these incredible illustrations out.

In light of the mass spread of the new Pokemon Go App it was only a matter of time for some fan art to follow. I was waiting in anticipation for something cool however I wasn’t expecting this. This Pokemon fan art takes those adorable little creatures and turn them into something a tad more aggressive. Massive credit to J. R. Coffron and friends for these “PokeMonstrosities” as they call them.
The Pokemon fan art shows the vicious side to these and of course my favourite definitely is the demonic Pikachu, above. Although it is demonic, the vibrant electricity mixed with the terrifying details makes this absolutely kick-ass!
Once more unto the breach! Lollipop Geek ventured to the ExCel arena in east London to wander round MCM Comic Con last weekend. We attended on the Friday this time and managed to catch some amazing stalls, artists, cosplayers and fans. If you were lucky enough to get there this year, you’ll know what we’re talking about! If not, sit back and enjoy our photos and overview of the event. To see more from one of the artists or stalls featured, just click or tap on their name!

As promised, here is part 2 of the fan art posts. The above image really shows the impact that women have on both of Disney and GoT, it is fantastic and is quite a cool comparison between the two.
This shows the comparisons made in more detail and the art and design work which has gone into these. Amazing.
Continuing with this weeks Game of Throne theme. The next thing that I found which I found interesting was a lot of different art depicting different perspective of the show we all know and love and I am loving all of this Game of Thrones Fan Art!!!
Some spoilers to follow for those who haven’t yet completely caught up with the series!
The first one is the above image, which are the 8-bit pixel versions of different characters, created by Gleeson. These are so cool and I’m sure, if you are as much as a fan as us that you’ll be able to tell who’s who in this image. See if you can get them all!
Another pixelated version of the characters, however not in 8-bit format created by Boo Studios and selling a variety of different things, here, that you can keep around your home. Theses are more clearer who they are and I love the creativity and effort put into these.
