100 Iconic Movie Characters – Can You Name Them All?


In brief, Dutch artist Joep Gerrits designed this poster depicting his subjective list of the 100 most iconic movie characters. The icons are clever and minimalist, almost South Parkian, and come from 68 different films.

It’s been raining here in Brooklyn for the past three days, so trying to name each of the characters seems like an appropriate activity at the moment. I’ve started off by identifying 32 of them and now I would like you, dear readers, to help me fill in the rest. Gerrits lists the films he used on his Deviant Art page, so I suppose you could just IMDB it … but that wouldn’t be as fun, now would it?

Gerrits also gave the same treatment to Star Wars characters, an image which I’ve also included after the jump. Get to it!

Hello Kitty As Everyone


In one of the more epic mashups we’ve seen, an illustrator named Joseph Senior from New Zealand has taken Hello Kitty and combined her with a number of pop-culture mainstays, including Darth Vader, Buzz Lightyear, Iron Man, Homer Simpson and Mr. Spock.

It’s a shame these are only illustrations — they would look fantastic sitting on our toy throne. Hit the jump to see 12 more.

Star Wars Sandwich Cutters Turn PB&Js Into Millennium Falcons


…and Darth Vader’s TIE Fighters, too. It’s really the vintage tin lunchbox packaging that seals the deal for me, though.

Victorian Style Star Wars Portraits by Greg Peltz


The San Francisco-based Peltz was inspired by fellow artist Robert Mackenzie to paint (digitally?) these awesome Victorian style portraits of Star Wars characters. Check out more of his work here. Here’s to hoping either Darth Vader or Yoda comes next.
