I have always been envious of those with artistic skill because when it comes to things like drawing or painting, I suck.  Just how bad do I suck?  I can’t even make a good looking stick figure.  I’m not saying I would like to be the next Bob Ross or anything, but it would be nice if I at least had enough artistic skill or talent to be able to paint my house to look similar to this awesome Mario Bros utility building in the picture below.

Sadly, I have no idea where this awesome Super Mario Bros utility building is, who it belongs to or who painted it but it is still one of the coolest buildings I have ever seen.  I’ve seen some great geeky graffiti painting on buildings before, but I think this is the first time I have ever seen an entire building get painted like this.

Whoever did this has some real talent!  I wonder if they would be available to paint my house because I would love to have a Super Mario Bros house.

While I have a huge love for art, I don’t have a big enough bank account that would support my desire to have beautiful paintings hanging all over the walls of my house.  One of my dreams is to someday own something painted by Bob Ross but at this rate, I am probably going to need to hit the lottery first before I can afford one of his works.  Anyway, I wish there were more video game inspired paintings like the one below because this is the kind of stuff I would love to hang on my walls!

The mom of Reddit user mymindisntblown painted this spectacular Legend of Zelda oil painting for them as a house warming gift.  This Zelda painting was based on a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time promo poster that looked basically the same but I think this turned out looking a lot cooler.  This guy has the coolest mom ever!

It is very unfortunate that I don’t have an artistic bone in my body because I would love to be able to make cool works of art as a tribute to the things that I love.  Well, apparently there is at least one guy with a bit of artistic skill who likes to put it to good use by making cool paintings of things like the Star Trek Enterprise.

Reddit user stellarpath is the creator of this awesome work of Star Trek art.  He created this beautiful painting of the Enterprise and four planets with spray paints.  I didn’t even know you could get such detail with spray paint but the only spray paint I have ever had any experience with is the one in Microsoft’s paint and the last time I used that was probably on Windows 98.

If you create any geeky works of art, let me know in the comments below or through the contact page at the top and I might just feature your geeky work of art!

Although it has never been my favorite work of art (although I still like it), without a doubt, the most recognized painting ever created is the Mona Lisa.  While it is a good painting, I think the primary reason for its iconic status has more to do with the artist that painted it and the mystery that surround the girl in the painting more than the actual style of the painting.  Well, when it comes to style, I far prefer the Mona Zelda to the Mona Lisa!

Apparently one gamer with some artistic skills named Alexi decided to recreate the Mona Lisa for her boyfriend but replaced the iconic woman in the painting with Princess Zelda.  I would say she did a rather spectacular job!  As a Legend of Zelda fan, I would love to hang this painting on my wall!

I know Halloween is over and I promise to stop posting Halloween pumpkins soon, but there are just a couple more that I have found that are so good I can’t help but post about them.  This exploding TARDIS pumpkin carving is perhaps my favorite jack-o-lantern that I have seen this year and I am quite amazed at how well it turned out!

This amazing exploding TARDIS pumpkin carving (inspired by the Van Gogh painting in Doctor Who) was crafted by a Whovian known as Elizabeth (I don’t know a last name).

Doctor Who pumpkin carvings are cool and this exploding TARDIS jack-o-lantern is fantastic!

One of my favorite comics as a kid was always Calvin and Hobbes.  It always seemed to be clever and funny when cartoons like Garfield started to feel stale.  Despite the fact that I haven’t read my Calvin and Hobbes since it stopped being included in our local newspaper, it is still one of my all time favorite comic strips.  Well, it seems I am not alone in that feeling!

It seems one Calvin and Hobbes fan (I don’t know who, so if you know who made this painting, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit) decided to get creative with a fence and some paint and recreate the iconic scene from Calvin and Hobbes where the two are laying against a tree pondering various things.

I’d say this looks so good, you would think it was the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip creator that painted this!  It is very impressive!
