Hello El Moochadores! This is just a real quick post to announce a new print on Murray Brothers Creative. Hey Bub, is a Wolverine fan piece done in vector art featuring classic (1980’s) Wolverine in his brown and yellow costume. Illustration work was done by Atomic Moo’s Chudd, and you can buy the print on 8.5″ x 11″ or 5″ x 7″ (mini-print) sizes!
Good morning El Moochadores! For today’s Morning Moo I found some great pieces of Marvel art on Deviant Art. The sample above is entitled Genius, Billionaire… and was produced by French illustrator Léa Chaillaud (aka: Five-Oclock). I’ve posted a few other samples of her work below, but hit the link to see much more of her work. You can also purchase prints of her art at Society6.com.
With Cool Fan Art, an X-Men Parody, and Portal Stuff!
Good Morning El Moochadores! Feels like one of those days to really get stuff done. Y’know, try harder and really accomplish! So, I’m gonna eat big breakfast, take a nap, and maybe do a little mall walk’n. Oh, and if I can squeeze it in, I might just go catch a movie. Maybe that Hot Tube Time Machine squeal. Yup. Gotta strive.
Anyways, today we got some pretty cool stuff. There’s some fan art, a very cool Portal video, and a version of the X-Men that none of us ever wanted to see.
Spider-Gwen Fan Art
Check out this great illustration from Spanish artist, Rafael Teruel Cáceres (aka: Rafater on the deviant art), of Spider-Gwen! Rafater also has a video on the youtube showing how the illustration was created. Which is helpful, if you’re a terminator and you can take in data at super high speeds. Seriously, don’t call it a “how to” video if all it shows is a painting being made a warp speed. Though, it gets a lot better if you pretend he’s really painting that fast. Then it’s like, “holy shit! That guy’s an android!” Anywhat, it’s an excellent illustration and the video is still interesting to watch.
What if Wes Anderson Directed The X-Men
Don’t ever make this movie. Holy shit, can we please all agree that a Wes Anderson version of anything would be mostly awful. Except maybe Harry Potter. All the same, check out this funny parody of the X-Men movie, had it been written, produced, and directed by Mr. Anderson. The short film was produced by Patrick Willems, and it actually looks (feels) like a Wes Anderson picture.
Portal – Game Of Turrets
Via Harry101UK: Check out Game Of Turrets, which is both really cool, and also kind of creepy. Also, you’re gonna have that tune in your head for most of the day now. You’re welcome.
Good Morning El Moochadores! One of the things I use to hate about doing the Morning Moo was that on busy work days it was often the only post I could get done for the site. So all I would see at the end of a work week is a long line of “Morning Moo’s” on the blog.
Warmest Year On Record!
Ye Gods, but I fucking love science. I also love the site IFLScience.com. Spell it out for your self folks… Anyways, this report isn’t so much creative as it is geeky, but check out this report from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies that show’s 2014 was the hottest year since record keeping began in 1880. Very interesting, and worth a listen while you idle your car in bumper to bumper traffic while go to work this morning, you Earth murdering maniac!
Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen Won’t Return For X-Men: Apocalypse!
Via Rolling Stone; It looks like we won’t be getting to see the older, wiser, better looking (they probably think so), versions of Professor X and Magneto in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. According to the article on Rollingstone.com, Patrick Steward was on Larry King Now and said,
I was learning quite a lot more about it last night, and it is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance – Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.
ATROPA: Awesome Sci-fi Short!
Finally, check out this great short film by Eli Sasich called Atropa! The short film was written by Clay Tolbert and stars Anthony Bonaventura, Jeannie Bolet, David M. Edelstien, Ben Kliewer, and Chris Voss. It’s the futuristic story of “An Off-World Detective investigates the missing research vessel ATROPA.”
Via Deviant Art: Hey El Moochadore, check out this great piece of X-Men fan art by illustrator Joanna Vu! Days of Future Past features Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen, and Michael Fassbender as “old/young Professor X and old/young Magneto”. Brilliant but be sure to also check out the rest of Joanna’s portfolio on Deviant Art!
Okay, so I don’t even know that much about this guy, Memed, other than he’s a Turkish digital artist with a lot of talent! However, for the purposes of Atomic Moo I think that’s enough. Take a look of some of his (actually, I’m not even sure Memed is a dude, but let’s just assume) very cool superhero art work below! My personal favorite is the Tank Girl illustration. Not just because it’s very well done, but mostly just because I fucking love Tank Girl.
Okay El Moochadores, here’s episode 40 of the Atomic Moocast! I’m currently at work right now and don’t have time to post all the links and stories that go along with this moocast, but on this edition Chudd and I do a State of the Moo and then review a few geeky news topics including the recent announcement of Disney’s buying of Star Wars! So give it a listen and I’ll be back later with Show notes and links!

Hey El Moochadors. I hope things are going well for you all tonight. My brother Trog informed me earlier that Star Wars recently turned 35 (it was released May 25th, 1977), and we spent sometime talking about it. So, while going through my reader and other sources, I tried to find a few neat things that are Star Wars related. One of those being this nifty infographic (above) put together by Newsarama.com (found it via Geektyrant.com). I’m kind of in the mood to watch the trilogy now. I’ll have to pop in Episode IV after I’m done with this post.
I came across this one on dbsw.net (Distracted by Star Wars). It’s by Russian illustrator, and DeviantArt member, Pianzin (sorry, I have no idea what his real name is). Definitely an awesome illustration, and a great piece of graphic design.
And this one I found on Geek-art.net, and it was created by Sublevel Studios and Mark Steele. I really love this one because of its retro horror movie vibe. Pretty neat!
