The Old Spice Guy Responds To Our Gallery, Issues Fan Art Challenge

Holy shit, you guys. The Old Spice Guy (a.k.a. Isaiah Mustafa) saw the gallery of fan art of him that we posted a while back, and responded directly to our own Liana Maeby via Youtube. He even said her name out loud, lucky girl. (She’s totally going to freak out when she gets back from vacation.) Seeing the potential for even more artistic tributes to his timeless beauty, he decided to give fans a few more poses to work with so that they might use him as their “blank, well chiseled, muscle laden, lady loving canvas.” I’ve screen capped all of them for your perusal; feel free to submit any pleasant smelling fan art you create to submissions@crushable.com.

Fan Service: This ‘Hunger Games’ Fan Art Really Helps Us Envision Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth In Character

Fan Service: This 'Hunger Games' Fan Art Really Helps Us Envision Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth In Character

Those of you still not convinced by Lionsgate’s casting choices for The Hunger Games should check out EmmilyTM‘s pieces on deviantART (via Down With the Capitol). Pulling from photo shoots and candids, she gives us a preview of what the makeup chair will do: Make the actors better resemble Katniss, Gale, and Peeta. We’ve already seen Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss thanks to the Entertainment Weekly cover, and she looked rockin’. But aside from a few paparazzi shots or old magazine shoots, we haven’t had the chance to really envision either guy as her two love interests. (It doesn’t help that each has the opposite coloring of his character.) More »

Fan Service: What You Can Do to Help Japan

Fan Service: What You Can Do to Help Japan

Often fandom is viewed as an insular, even selfish community dedicated only to discussion and art related to their specific series. As we saw with the whole Firefly fiasco last week, fans can drum up bad press by appearing way too single-minded.

However, those negative incidents don’t characterize fandom as a whole. For every natural catastrophe that has occurred over the past eight years, I’ve witnessed LiveJournal fan communities unite to raise funds for emergency aid organizations. Their latest efforts, centered in the multi-fandom, multimedia community Help Japan, are reminiscent of the actions that fans took after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. More »

Art Crush: The Best 'Twin Peaks' Fan Art

You guys! Yesterday we thought we saw Bob from Twin Peaks on the train and we totally had a panic attack. Have you all seen this show? Because it’s legitimately the best thing ever. We were inspired to look around for some fan art inspired by David Lynch‘s series, and we’ve got to say, it’s some pretty special stuff. Like really above and beyond — and if there’s one thing we know it’s fan art. More »

You’re only ten years old, and while you may not have a star on the Walk of Fame (yet), you now have a collection of fan art. Next stop: Proactiv commercial. More »
