Remember the Firefly travel posters I have in my
nerd shrine bathroom? And the art nouveau Doctor Who posters from Bill Mudron, that I talk about constantly? Well, everything seems to have come together. Megan Lara has just released this incredible series of art nouveau, Alphone Mucha style Firefly posters.
I’ve often felt that you can learn a lot about a guy by which Firefly girl he goes for. 99% go for Inara or Kaylee, the occasional one goes for River, but I’ve never once heard a guy go for Zoe. Clearly, none of you have ever been with a warrior woman!
You can buy them all here.
Mudron’s got a new piece out too, although it isn’t art nouveau. It’s more of a Japanese woodblock print knockoff, featuring Madame Vastra and Jenny battling a pair of Cybermen. And it’s awesome! Click to embiggen.

Bill Mudron has struck again. This time he’s done two new posters. One is a superb Rory Pond (née Williams) in centurion mode (be still my heart!) and the other is a version of the 10th Doctor that makes me want to forsake reality entirely and live in a fantasy world like Davy Jones’ locker from Pirates of the Caribbean 3, but with David Tennant, John Simm and Timothy Dalton instead of Jack Sparrow. Although I guess a few Captain Jack Harknesses wouldn’t come amiss. And Johnny Depp can come too, as long as he understands which Captain Jack holds precedence. I will have so much fun! You may remember Mudron from the outstanding Deco Doctor poster that I’ve been bragging about for months now, and which we featured in our last big Doctor Who roundup.
Puffin, I am buying these instead of paying the electric bill this month. Who needs lamps when 10′s smile can light up a room?
Despite rumors to the contrary, I am still alive! My brain, however, has not not yet recovered, so rather than launching into my new rant about reproductive rights or my collective bargaining health care conspiracy theory (I will fill you in later Puffin but spoiler alert: I’m pissed at everyone except Antony Weiner) I will instead drop an awesome-bomb on you in the form of assorted Doctor Who stuff. Am I excited about the new season, which starts on Saturday? You bet! Will I be able to watch it? Of course not.
This is an AMAZING Dalek propaganda poster, by the fantastic Francesco Francavilla.
This is another one which was actually produced by the BBC themselves. Of course, it was a tie in to my least favorite episode ever. Honestly, Victory of the Daleks was awful. But the poster is good, and can be downloaded in hi res here. You can also get it as a tee shirt from, sigh, Hot Topic, which I refuse to link to.
Here is a Skaaro Institute of Extermination mug that I obviously need to own.
This one has a bit of a German/Weimar Republic feel to it. From deviantartist LycanLauren.
These are a series of Doctor Who travel posters, or the closest thing I can find to them. Follow the link to find a few more. With all the crazy worlds the Doctor visits you’d think there would be tons of awesome posters, like Steve Thomas’ wonderful Star Wars advertising posters and Middle Earth travel posters. But this seems to be pretty much it.
This is from the vault, and I may or may not already own the first one, but they’re still my favorite things ever so I will continue to blog them every couple of months until I grow up a bit and stop feeling the urge to show off. From Bill Mudron. Purchase info is here.
This is a fantastic French Tom Baker era poster. Unfortunately it’s a terrrrrrible quality pic. From flikr.
Next we have a mild riff off the Social Network’s extremely repurpose-able poster. From tumblr.
And this is just to settle an argument I’ve been having with certain truly stupid male relatives. Karen Gilliam is HOT, ok? End of story. Pics or it didn’t happen? Fine. From a photoshoot for Marie Claire. (I know at least 3 people who are going to need to change their trousers after looking at this.) Her legs alone warp the space time continuum.
This is a Tardis infographic. Click to embiggen and make it, you know, legible and stuff.
And to finish off I present you with possibly the most impressive thing I have ever seen. A Tardis cake that is a) incredibly pretty and accurate and b) is bigger on the inside!!!!! How is that possible???? Well, as far as I understand it, the cake-engineer (I don’t even know who this person is, but I want them to be my friend forever) did something clever with mirrors to make the inside seem bigger than the outside. Puffin I cannot even cope with awesomeness of this magnitude.
I am flabbergasted Puffin. Flabbergasted. I hope the season premier is awesome enough to live up to all this crazy coolness. Watch it for me.

Check out the poster art tag or the category in the drop down menu to the left. Also, please submit stuff! I love nerd-phenalia, so drop stuff in comments, send it to tumblr, whatever. I’m always looking for more.
Please forgive my little dalliance with professional sports. I don’t know what came over me (oh wait, yes I do). Anyway, these delightful additions to the
nerd shrine art gallery chez MacGuffin represent a return to form. Today I added some lovely minimalist Doctor Who posters to my collection. Voila!
I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. Especially when I tell you that there are more here.
