Chaos Space Marines from Davey Jones's locker

I typically only post Games Workshop miniatures at Toycutter, but every so often I see something that really knocks my socks off. Check out Brandon Palmer's Scallywaggin Chaos Space Marine army for Warhammer 40K. And the pirates and diving suited figures and octopuses you see below are just a small sampling of the wondrous miniatures he has on display at his site.

Nick Denton on the Gawker redesign: "Obviously, the reduction in traffic from Google — as from most design changes — has been significant."

Three great posters for the movie Rubber?

Wikipedia hilariously summarizes:

Rubber is a 2010 French horror comedy film about a tire that comes to life and kills people with its psychic powers. It was directed and written by Quentin Dupieux. The film was shown at the Cannes Film festival where it had negative critical reception. Reviews outside of Cannes have been more positive.
The trailer's well worth a watch.

First there was Olly Moss's poster:

And now, a poster by Boris Vallejo (and Julie Bell?):

There's also a French poster that's great:

Project Rooftop's Aquaman redesign contest

Project Rooftop posted the winners in its Aquaman redesign contest. Many of them aren't much more than (nicely drawn) trivial twists on Aquaman's established looks. But these are my favorites. If I saw these looks on a comic I'd be optimistic that the story might be fresh:

B. T. Pannell.

Nate Bellegarde.

Yasmin Liang.

And this redesign by Chris King (which I previously posted) is still my favorite:
