Daily Graffiti: In The Year 200X, Shit Got Real
This is a HUUUUGE pixel graffiti mural painted by KID NES and Sabotaz. The whole video’s pretty long, but I couldn’t find a good hi-res pic and am too lazy for screen capping right now.
This tip was sent in by our friend Gameboyone who we interviewed for her awesome pixel graffiti once upon a time. Go check that out.
Daily Graffiti: “Now you realize the powers I possess!”
A huge pixellated piece by KEUMAR of Blanka from the Street Fighter games. He was actually the first character that I would main back in the old days, now I can’t use him for shit.

Custom Street Fighter Chucks
(I couldn’t decide on whether to use a Spinning Bird Kick or Hurricane Kick joke in the title, so I opted for neither.)
These were made by Maya Pixelskaya using who-knows-what kind of method. ::checks notes:: Hot damn! These were handpainted!!! They look super slick and ultra professional. See how I used the words super and ultra since it’s a Street Fighter post? Sometimes I feel bad that not everyone can be this rad.

This life-size replica of the Lancer from the Gears of War series was made by PLUM B. Not only is the chainsaw actually motorized, but it can be loaded with actual clips of rubber bands and fired in semi-auto and auto modes.
I say we get a group of people together, arm ourselves with these things, and have us a flashmob Lancer battle at Legoland.
Check out a video of this beast in action after the jump.

Geek Ink: Gnarly Zelda Half Sleeve
This piece adorns the arm of Gemma Callaghan and it features characters from various Zelda titles. Can you name them all?
Daily Graffiti: Frieza Graffiti Spotted in Paris
Since today is Dragon Ball Z’s 15th anniversary here in the states, I figured this piece featuring arguably the greatest DBZ villain of all time was more than fitting.
Custom Skateboards by Jeff Beck
Jeff Beck sent us these pics of some customs boards he did for the Grind skateboard art show at the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro, NC which kicked off this past weekend. As huge fans of sugar skull girls, Nintendo, Ultraman, and skateboarding, we fully support these radical shenanigans.
Speaking of sugar skulls, Nintendo, and Ultraman, check out these sweet prints from Jonathan Koshi.
Girls On Bikes - A Public Installation Project by INSA
Having “girls on bikes” and street artist INSA together in the same sentence should paint a pretty vivid picture in your brain box. Most likely a picture of provocatively-dressed curvy ladies in sweet footwear. On bikes. And that’s EXACTLY what it is, but we don’t hate it one bit.
The artist describes the project on his blog:In this set of photographic works the viewer is instantly confronted with a series of subjects fighting for attention. INSA orchestrates a conflicting dialogue between all the elements and explicitly subordinates the value of his own street art to both the possessed object of the bike and the overtly sexualized female presence. Thus questioning our individual perceptions of the ownership of public space, of sexuality and of belonging(s). And by using the colour spectrum as a simple narrative INSA unifies this series of walls that were painted across the globe.”
Translation: Graffiti is cool. Bikes are cool. Ass and titties are cooler.
OSKUNK X Level Cap Clothing Artist Edition NES Cartridge Clock
Clearly drawing from the vibes of his Dead Mario and Dead Wario custom Munnys, OSKUNK whipped up this Super Mario Death 3 design for the latest limited edition NES Cart clock from Level Cap Clothing. These are limited to just 10 pieces and each one is numbered on the back.
One Last Knight for Justice!
What happens when the Justice League is no more and Batman is the only one left to save the day? Ulises Farinas knows with this hypothetical cover to that grim tale. Bonus points if you can identify the various items that the Dark Knight has taken from his fallen comrades. And if you haven’t read his 14-page Batman Loses comic, you can do so HERE.
‘Til Death Do Us Part
Dead Island comes out this week and if you’ve been keeping track of the title, you’ll also know about the Dead Island six-page promotional comic with a cover by Christian Nauck (a.k.a. Manarama). If you didn’t get a chance to read it at San Diego Comic Con, it’s also available online HERE.
Daily Graffiti: Half Digital Wolverine Is Scary
Jim Carrey: Graffiti Bandit
This dude is 49 and still keeps it gangster. I’d like to know what paints he’s using because it definitely looks like some made-for-graffiti type shit and not your average $2 Krylon.
Even though he’s doing this on his own house, it’s still pretty badass.

Daily Geekstomization: Electric Mayhem Pt. 1
Here’s a groovy set of custom Dunnys for all you Muppets fans out there from Nikejerk.
From the artist:This is the first portion of Electric Mayhem, the house band from the Muppet Show. I did a Kermit at the end of last year and I added leg extensions so when I was commissioned by the same collector to do these I had to do the same. These are about 1/4 taller than normal Dunny’s, have custom arms and many other changes. I love the colors on these and getting to use felt and yarn in a logical manner on these was really cool as well.
