Dark Superhero Grandpa Befriends Darth Vader

About a year ago, over half a million of you came in and fell in love with a superhero grandma named Mamika. Then, when we learned that found she had found love in an equally courageous suitor named Mr. Papika, you embraced him with open arms. Not soon after, we discovered that Mamika had turned to the dark side, finding companionship in a trouble-ridden man named Dark Papouka. Oh yes, they were up to no good in the set titled The Darks, Part I.

Today the saga continues, in The Darks, Part II, as we find Dark Papouka befriending an evil villain we all know and love despise, the one and only Darth Vader. “Though Dark Papouka is a really naughty old man, it’s normal that he has a best friend,” creator of the series Sacha Goldberger told us. “Darth Vader appeared to me to be the perfect best friend of Dark Papouka.”

You’ll have to scroll through all of the incredible images to see how this story, about friendship, unfolds. While many of these shots can stand on their own, they’re best viewed as a contiguous set. (There’s a surprise at the end you’ll also want to check out.) Just as we’ve experienced with all of Goldberger’s series, we promise that you’ll be entertained throughout.

Before you go into that, however, we just want to stop and thank Sacha Goldberger for always sharing his creative photo sets with us first here at My Modern Met. It took about six months for him and his crew to complete this awesome series, from the writing and shooting to the retouching.

Now, here’s your exclusive first-look.

What can we expect next from Sacha? “I’m finishing the next book which should be out in Marsh 2012 and I’m preparing a short movie with Mamika,” he says.

Meticulous Landscape Paintings Beautifully Represent Intangible Emotional States

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
