Pop. Art. Those two words by themselves are awesome, but put them together and you have yourself something altogether more stylish, you have pop-art that is epitomised by the work of Art & Hue.
I’ve posted a couple of times previously about the fantastic work from this British designer. His work on The Avengers and the Carry On series both tickled my art-fancy and, would you believe it, he just keeps creating more amazing designs!
So, to close out 2016, and perhaps give you some ideas for last minute festive pop-art gifts, here are just a few of the Art & Hue collections that we haven’t already featured.
Hey creeps, remember that time that Gerry Anderson manifested one of his amazing marionettes as a real life girl, and then had her sing pop ditties about one of his other shows that actually took place after the show said character was from? Well, even if you don’t here’s Kate Kestrel (from Terrahawks, which was set in 2020) singing S.O.S., which seems to directly reference Thunderbirds (which took place in 2065)!
p.s. Why is that “S.O.S.” overlay covering the entire video marking it like a digital Hester Prynne?
I do not speak or read Japanese, but the gameboard posted at Hakes for these Japanese Thunderbird Board Games Sets look easy enough to figure out. Really thought, I doubt I would play them much, because I like the cover art so much (even with its minor damage), I would need to frame the entire set and hang it on my wall.
