17 Creative Letterheads from Celebrities & Public Figures

created at: 01/11/2012

Although it's safe to say that letters from Andy Warhol and Nikola Tesla won't be arriving in your mailbox anytime soon, here's your chance to get a glimpse of their personal letterhead.

Infographic: Batman and the History of the Bat-Suit

created at: 01/10/2012With the possible exception of Superman's Crayola-colored S-on-the-chest and simple cape/brief strongman combo, the Bat-suit is the most iconic superhero outfit of all time. The mask, the gloves, and most importantly, the utility belt, it walks the line of generically comic book-y and perfectly customized to the Caped Crusader.

Of course, since Batman's first appearance in 1939, there have been more than thirty-five incarnations of the Bat-suit, from the classic blue-and-grey to the black-and-molded-muscle-vinyl...er,… read more

How To: Make Superhero Garden Gnomes

Even the humble garden gnome has the potential for a full-on, justice-inducing, evil-butt-kicking alter ego. 

Clever guy Kris came up with a fun and easy way to transform everyday Winklebottoms and Figgleforths into slug-stomping, possum-punishing superheroes!

He used  bit of Sculpey clay, autobody filler, and some clever painting techniques for a very funny, very creative result.

File under "why didn't I think of that?!"

Since his on-screen debut in 1943, Batman has gone through plenty of changes, from tights to the cast vinyl of the Tim Burton-era to CNC-cut molded rubber of today, sans chest logo.

The History and Evolution of the Batman Logo

http://www.sparehed.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/batman-logo.jpgThe Batman logo...talk about brand recognition. That symmetrical slash of black, looking neither like a man or a bat, and somehow exactly like both.

The Caped Crusader has been around for nearly seventy-five years, and continues to be reinvented to keep things contemporary. The same goes for his iconic logo - immortalized in Bat Signal, and in the backs of suburban kid heads circa 1990 after the release of the Tim Burton films. (Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers this)
