How cool would this be if this was your bedroom as a child? Philippa Rice’s Spaceboys pattern as a wall decal:

The Endless by Cris Vector over on Deviant Art

Graeme Neil Reid‘s Sherlock (twitpic)

Phil Noto’s Miss Emma Frost, New York City, 1984:

Cliff Chiang’s Gaga piece for GQ’s 2010 End of the Year special:

Dan Hipp’s Soul Mates – Orphans:

Cameron Stewart has been posting a fair few of these “personal work” on his tumblr recently. This one is merely indicative of how darned good they are. Love that nose….

Steph Buscema with a little Julie Newmar Catwoman:

Mike Maihack doing some great work:
