Geek Art on Society6

 I've been searching high and low for some wall prints to decorate my new place. We all know what we like when we see it, but searching and trawling on the web for art with a film, sci-fi or geeky twist is a mine-field, as there is simply SO much out there. One site I came across that is a great starting point if you are after a limited-run print is Society6. Based in USA (keep an eye on the shipping costs), I've complied this blog post on my favourite pieces and artists on Society6 which might help speed up your search for a new artistic talking point, ready for when your neighbour pops over to borrow your Game Of Thrones boxset or spare controller pad.

(Search tip - Society6 only lets you search for an artist by surname.)

Sam Gilbey

Starting on the bias, everything this man has produced I've adored thus far and you can spot his glossy hi-life digi-brushstrokes a mile off. With lots of commercial work in his portfolio, chances are you've seen his stuff in magazines and promos. Sam has a strong sway towards cult film and television programmes, check out his Virgin Media illustrated Guide to Doctor Who and his Oscars infographic.

> His great Tumblr feed is worth a follow too if you like to see his diverse works in situ

The colours of MATCHSTICK MAN are just so vivid the piece feels utterly alive.

Eric Fan

With an eclectic portfolio, Eric Fan has some great prints available for fans of Steampunk-surreal and fantastical nature subjects.

Just dreamy. I love the childlike dream state a lot of Danny's work take on, and with a very definite propaganda influence.
