2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Original Art, Crafts & Prints

JESS AND ROGER by Steve Cutts

If you’ve ever been in a long-term relationship you know that the bloom dies off after about 18 months of trying to keep up your best appearance. By the time you reach the double-digit years, you better hope that there is something other than your looks to keep the romance growing.

In the case of Jessica and Roger Rabbit, let’s hope that they both have awesome personalities…or a lot of KFC.

THE INSATIABLE MR. TOAD by Heather Theurer
 

For anyone who is a fan of the awesome J. Thaddeus Toad you can’t go wrong with this gorgeous Giclee-on-canvas print ready for a Wild Ride on your wall.

And by wild, I mean sitting there, idle, being stared at.

Some of us have a different definition of “wild”.

CUSTOM STUFFED ANIMAL by Cuddle Clones
 

You love your pet to a point of obsession so why not get a stuffed version of them just to push yourself over that fine line of insanity. Sure, people may think you’re a weirdo and all but hell, sometimes you just want an excuse to have your pet around you 24/7…and at least this version won’t poop on your floor or fart under your covers.

THE POSTMORTEM TEA SOCIETY by Stephanie Buscema
 

Stephanie Buscema is one of my favorite artists and if you gaze upon this glorious print long enough I know you will be too. Seriously who wouldn’t fall in love with three well-dressed tea party goers who are all in a state of decay?

Perfect for a dining room or area where tea is served.


THE GOONIES RETRO FILM PRINT by Ehron Asher
 

An alternative retro movie poster for The Goonies inspired by posters from the live action Disney films of the 1950’s and 1960’s such as Treasure Island and Swiss Family Robinson. 11″x17″, professionally printed on 100lb high-quality paper with a silk finish. Silk finish is similar to a matte finished coated paper – the surface is smooth, but without reflections, which means that it combines high readability with high image quality.

CUSTOM CARVED ‘WE DO GEEK’ HOUSE SIGN by Heather Sox and Kari Miller

We’ve all seen those affirmation-themed signs littering the homes of every suburban dwelling known to man, but very few of those signs are worthy to be hung in a Nerd home…so enter this one that covers just about ever geekdom that you could ever want. Sure to please those of us whom don’t care about anything outside of our own weird dorkitude.

CELEBRITY GODDESS TAROT DECK by Faye Orlove

Cast your future with a tarot deck full of goddesses from the pop culture pantheon, featuring Yoko Ono, Mala Youafzai, Olivia Benson, Kathleen Hannah and Miley Cyrus as the Death Card (plus many more).

I don’t know how much more badass your tarot deck can get unless the Devil card is Rhianna…oh wait, it is.

GUSTAVO FRING PRINT by Rich Pellengrino

Relive the moment when Gus got half his face blown off in Breaking Bad with this dreaming print by artist Rich Pellegrino. Sure it’s one of BB‘s most grotesque moments and it probably wouldn’t be appropriate to hang in a kid’s room, but it’s beautiful enough to adorn a wall of your home without you seeming like a serial killer.

LEGION OF DOOM by Jim Mahfood
 

Mahfood’s unique interpretation of the classic Legion Of Doom line-up of villains from the 70’s Super Friends animated show in Print form! Limited Edition on acid-free, 300gsm lightly textured fine art rag paper. The colors are absolutely gorgeous on this! Signed & numbered (w/ a little doodle) by Jim Mahfood. Measures 12×16 inches.

MOMENTARY INK TEMPORARY TATTOO
 

Tattoos are permanent objets d’art that come in one of two ways: completely awesome or horribly wrong. Before you make the ultimate commitment by applying the face of Shia LaBeouf to your upper thigh, why not take him out for a test drive first with Momentary Ink, a high quality temporary tattoo that you can sport in order to make sure you really want all that ink embedded into your skin.

The process is really easy:

  1. Upload an image of the tattoo you want 
  2. Momentary Ink will create a replica of it and ship it back to you 
  3. You apply it to the part of the body you want using water and Momentary Ink’s special solution and 
  4. Enjoy it for 3-10 days.

A great gift for yourself or that person in your life who is dead-set on getting their significant other’s face on their arm and desperately needs to have a buffer zone between the temporary and permanent.

ALL THE SHIA LaBEOUFS by Brandon Bird
 

Another Shia LaBeouf reference? You betcha! But this time we have him decked out in the garb and style of each and every Doctor Who! I’m not going to explain how awesome this poster is, you can tell that just by looking at it, but, if you happen to fall in love with a specific LaBeouf, don’t worry, Bird has a solitary print of him as well so enjoy.

The LaBeouf will see you now.

STAR WARS TRILOGY MINIMALIST PRINT SET by Ty Mattson

There’s a lot of Star Wars stuff out on the market but this sweet set of 8×10 prints by Ty Mattson feels just right. Plus, it’s produced in association with Acme Archives, the official Star Wars Licensee, which makes it even more legit.

Trust me, these are gonna look awesome on your wall.

SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN PRINT by Boiling Point Creative
 

Inspired from one of the most exciting TV series of the ’70s, Colonel Steve Austin is back in full effect, as the action figure we spent countless hours playing with as a child. This Six Million Dollar Man print is a digitally illustrated poster and printed on high quality matte archival stock. Size is 16 x 24.

STEVE ZISSOU PRINT by Sam Gilbey

Why have a picture of your family when you can have this glorious portrait of Bill Murray as Steve Zissou hanging on your wall?

Yeah, I don’t know why you didn’t think of this sooner either.

TOTORO PRINT by Victorsbeard

The trees and people used to be good friends…

SIR YODINGTON by Terry Fan

Part of Fan’s Victorian Wars series of paintings, the Sir Yodington just happens to be my favorite. But a warning, once you start collecting his pieces you will get addicted so tread carefully my friends.

HERO-GLYPHICS: THE FORCE by Josh Ln

Did the ancient Egyptians foretell the coming of the Star Wars universe? Did an alien race leave this here so that millions of nerds could go bat-shit crazy over a religion based upon The Force? Or did an artist like the marriage between hieroglyphics and sci-fi? Who cares? The print is cool and in a million years some archaeologist will no doubt be excavating the suburbs and they’ll find this little gem and an entire study of hero-glyphics will spring up.

So buy it and employ some future Ph.D candidates.
