Greetings evil brethren! In today’s Wednesday edition of our Nerd Art showcase we are showing off more work by a guru of the genre, Tom Kelly. He’s been displayed a few times on our site and we keep finding more awesome stuff to show. There’s something about the simplicity in the (generally) minimal colors he uses that make his characters and art prints really stand out. Arthur Harkness hasn’t seen these yet, but mark my words his brain is going to melt when he sees the Viking Spider-Man picture…too many things he loves happening at once.
HELLO NERD WORLD
With the 7th day of Geeks-Mas upon us, it’s time to reflect on what makes a lot of us out there truly happy. Family, friends, the Back To The Future trilogy? Yes, but more importantly art. Bona fide, unabashed, glorious nerd art. The Evil Geeks are certainly no stranger to that realm and today we’d love to share with you our recommendations for that nerd art enthusiast in your life.
With nerd art being one of my favorite things and with so many options it’s incredibly hard to limit my recommendations to only a few, but here goes.
Jeff is a colorist that gives other people’s work a whole new twist. I met him at NY Comic Con, and couldn’t resist picking up this incredible re-coloring of the classic Todd McFarlane’s Amazing Spider-Man #300 cover. You can check out his prints for sale and the rest of his work here.
Well, I’ve already praised Timothy Anderson’s pulp art. But I can’t say enough about his work. I keep anxiously awaiting the day when we see an Indiana Jones print by him. His online store is still growing, now with 25% more Hobbits!
You may remember some of the the very striking Kingpin/Daredevil silhouette or the Batman origin print that we posted about. That’s only the tip of the iceberg of Tom’s work. We hope to see more of his art in 2013. In the meantime you can stock up here.
Remember to come back tomorrow for The 12 Days of Geeks-Mas Day 8: Books
Seasons Greetings Nerds!

We return today for another round of glorious nerd art by one of our favorites, Tom Kelly. The Evil Geeks just can’t seem to get enough. Check it out.
In my article discussing my experience at comic con I practically gushed about independent artist, Tom Kelly. From the response I’ve seen over the Kingpin/Daredevil print I bought from him I’ve decided to show off some more of his work.
The featured art all take a similar approach that I’m a fan of, simplicity. Most of them only use two or three colors at most. By no means are these all he has to offer but they are definitely my favorites (Batman and Storm Shadow in particular). Enjoy!
You can see more and purchase prints from Tom at his web store.
As our website’s resident Noob I thought it would be interesting to write about my first experience at Comic Con. It was something I had never really thought about doing but I’m glad I did. I went to zero panels, I strictly spent my time just wandering around and marveling at everything like a child being let into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The costumes of course were amazing; you could have spent the entire time just looking at them. I couldn’t believe how nice every single person was that I stopped to ask for a picture of or with. Not one person gave me a hard time, which when you think about is almost unbelievable given the sheer amount of pictures taken and posted on the site. In fact, everybody I dealt with there was incredibly nice and polite. I bet if you asked the other members of the evil geekdom you would get the exact same response.
If you have claustrophobia or dislike large crowds, comic con might not be your thing. There are A LOT of people. You are almost never not in the middle of a massive crowd where you’re constantly stopping for someone to take a picture, or someone hitting you with their book bag as they try to get around you or just being unexpectedly pushed. This really took some getting used to and I think I’d prefer (as would many others I’m sure) the comic cons of yore with significantly fewer people and some breathing room.
