NEW Print “Sail Away with Me” The Legend of Brenner

NEW Art Print Released from Superhero Nap Time artist Cole Brenner “Sail Away With Me” inspired after beating The Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker with his two year old son. The 13in x 19in print comes in Gloss and Metallic for $25. Just released on Etsy.

Peak under the ocean from Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker.  “Sail Away with Me” features Cole’s styling of the art edge. the art spills out into the white borders; the crest of the wave flows out across the white paper adding to feeling of the rolling ocean; The King of Red Lions sails through a wave as he laughs. Brenner felt this is how a moment in one day that followed Links adventure to defeat the evil Gannon. 

Big time Legend of Zelda fans, who have the Rupees to spend, can contact Cole through Etsy / FB / for information on purchasing the original painting; currently on display in Denver’s Sol Shine Gallery  (1501 Boulder St, Denver, CO 80211).  Near Denver? Meet Brenner this Saturday 5-8pm for an Art Show at Sol Shine gallery & boutique...with free drinks!

Hobbes Sculpture by Rich Page of UME Toys

This was a commissioned piece sculpted by Rich Page, a UK artist aka UME Toys. You can't have this one, because it's got an owner already, but you can hit Rich up here to commission your own. Calvin & Hobbes is near and dear to my heart, as my father read it to me on Sunday mornings when I was a kid. An adorable 3D rendition of a beloved character which will forever live deep in my subconscious, child brain.  Nice work, Rich.

Mesmerizing Super Mario Domino Video by The Domino King

Not toys, of course, but completely insane and epic and worth a watch, especially with the Arsenal of Artists GameOver group show opening tomorrow in Philly!

After a month of work I present to you Super Mario World In Dominoes! Super Mario World is my personal favorite Mario game of all time, and decided to recreate the game in dominoes. My original plan was to make a Mario Themed video with higher resolution pictures, but I didn’t have enough certain colored dominoes to make all the characters, so I ultimately decided on the classic 16-Bit of Super Mario World.
