More great artwork is to be found on the interwebs and most is done with many various techniques and skill levels, although what I have for you here is done with the most expert of skills. Photographs and digital paintings from the real to the conceptual to the fantastic. All of these pieces are what make the internet a great place for sharing and discovering art.

Outstanding art, music of ‘Heavy Metal’ captured lightning in a bottle in 1981

Heavy Metal Movie Poster 1981

Heavy Metal was released on Aug. 7, 1981. It was produced on a meager $9.3 million budget, but grossed nearly $20 million dollars during it’s initial theatrical release. Twenty-five years later, after some music industry scuffles about song rights, the film was re-released, as “Louder and Nastier than Ever,” in theaters on March 8, 1996 and later that year was released on VHS and Laserdisc, which sold over a million units. Five years after that in 2011, it was released on Blu-ray.

The film follows closely to the magazine it shares its title with, in that it was a film made up of 10 stories, although only nine were released. The only differentiating factor between the movie and the magazine, is that the movie is tied together with the Loc-Nar, while the magazine stories are not tied together at all in any given issue.

2014 Lehigh Valley Fan Festival at the Allentown Brew Works: Many Fandoms together in one Festival

2014 Lehigh Valley Fan Fest

Fan Festivals are like Comic Conventions, with a lesser emphasis on comic books themselves. So, I had a few expectations when I attended the 2014 Lehigh Valley Fan Festival this past weekend.

It exceeded my expectations, although I’m not sure if it was, in spite of or, because of it’s unique location in Allentown Brew Works; a multi-level brewery, restaurant, nightclub and event hall, all in one.
