Art of Alejandra Calle-Cook, with a similar feel to the strain of contact in John Matthews' The Sidhe and Emily Carding's Tarot of the Sidhe. In fact she mentions the book in conjunction with one of the pieces and uses the Great Glyph in a couple.

"Artist Peter Stults imagined a whole world of movies, as if they had been made before their actual release. What if Pulp Fiction and Avatar had been released in the 50′s, he thought, with Charlton Heston and William Shatner starring respectively?"

Most of these are pretty cool...

...but a few are giving me conceptual whiplash:

Leonard Nimoy in Die Hard? )

Frank Zappa in The Big Lebowski? )
arethinn: Obi-Wan Kenobi on the cover of a mock Adobe product box, text "Adobe Wan Kenobi" (random (adobe wan kenobi))
I have not actually been into My Little Pony since I was a young girl (80s 4 LYFE!), but this is just cool:

The Solar and Lunar banners are full of mystical symbolism. Really neat.

The Fall of the Pieomancers
by liiga on deviantART

It was too late!

The Pie had been summoned, but the binding ritual had been disrupted. The remaining pieomancers scrambled as the ferocious technofairy brought its steed around for one last strike. Casting a ward that she knew would never hold, the last pieomancer felt her eyes fill with tears of remorse. Not for her own end, but for the Pie of terror that they had unleashed upon the world.

A Brief History of the Technofairy Empire

Technofairies used to be regular fairies until they successfully opened a portal between worlds and brought back an artifact - a miner's helmet.

After many decades of attempting to reverse engineer it, they succeeded, and learned to power it by attaching widgets to their wings and fluttering them real fast. The technique was later used to power a wide array of other interesting mechanisms, often adding magic into the mix.

The helmet, however, retained a spot of special importance and not only because of its historical value. Their command of light allowed the technofairies to tame the fearsome pandamoths, turning them into steeds that were quite intelligent and quick to obliterate targets marked by lightbeams.

The combination of technological prowess and swarms of critters that put Australia to shame guaranteed quick ascent to power and foundation of the Technofairy Empire. Nobody objected much as the technofairies took upon themselves the role of guardians of the lands, protecting them against invaders and, more importantly, against anyone who might take it upon themselves to open portals and try to bring through artifacts, such as miner helmets, sharp objects or giant pies.

And that's why you don't use bamboo for staves if you're into pieomancery - it attracts pandamoths and angry technofairies.

The Gentlemanly Escort Cube
by *Risachantag on deviantART

The patented Gentlemanly Escort Cube is a must for all unchaperoned Victorian ladies finding themselves in indelicate situations that might upset their fragile constitutions.

The Cube excels particularly in warding off the untoward advances of stray turrets and politely holding down buttons for her as she proceeds along her way.

The Aperture Institute of Natural Philosophy reminds you that the Cube does not initiate conversation, and certainly not if you have not yet been formally introduced.
