Friday Art Crush: Fro Design Company

Do you long for a Westeros with a little more glitter and glamour?  Check these cabaret-style posters advertising some of A Song of Ice & Fire's oft discussed products.




I can't resist a GoT piece, and these were posted this week on several sites I frequent.  That led me to Fro, a.k.a. Fernando Reza, who has a fantastic collection of pop culture pieces.


These have been just some of my faves, so I highly recommend browsing his site.  Perhaps buy a piece.  I cannot imagine a classier way to express your little nerdy hearts than by filling your house with amazing art glorifying the things you love.

You know, on second thought, you should probably buy two pieces: one for you and one for me.  Thanks, loves!

Want of the Day: All the Literary References

Today, I discovered not one but TWO awesome collections of products referencing literature.

First up, something I actually need.  A new iPhone case!

My initial instinct was to go for Dune.

The texts must FLOOOOOWWWW!!

But I don't think brown is really the best phone case cover, especially because that sandworm silhouette is already a bit...fecal...


Moving on, I thought maybe I'd go for a perennial fave, The Great Gatsby!!

It would match my Gatsby-inspired burlesque number!

F Scott failed to mention Daisy Buchanan's rampant nudity and love of beaded fringe.
But that still doesn't really allow me to express my inner nerd.  Then, I found it:
Blue Box Cases via Geeky Merch

Finally!  Something that says I love vampires but also classic literature!

To round out my classic literature nergasm, I found these:
Oil Fragrance "Elizabeth Bennet" | Basil, Anise, Lemon and Mandarin Oil Perfume |10 ml | Alcohol Free, Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly


The Austen-inspired ones are tempting, but I actually think Heathcliff would smell the best:

Spot the Stark!

This incredible piece by deviantART user Magdalena is called "Under the Heart Tree."  It  depicts Song of Ice & Fire's Stark family at their character's current point in the story, and it gives me feels.

Beware if you haven't read all the books, as there may be minor visual spoilers.
