The proliferation of social media is an incredible boon for lovers of art, design and illustration. Sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and numerous other blogs and feeds bombard us with a ceaseless supply of artwork by professionals and fans that is variously excellent, clever, funny, innovative, and numerous degrees of awesome.
Our sister site, ComicsAlliance, makes a habit of spotlighting particular artists and/or specific bodies of work, but there's just so much great work to see that they've initiated Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the virtually countless pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our travels across the digital media landscape.
With film and television being just as inspiring to illustrators and designers as comic books, it only made sense to spin the feature off for Moviefone as Best Movie Art Ever (This Week).
Some of it's new, some of it's old, some of it's created by working professionals, some of it's created by talented fans, and some of it's endearingly stupid. All of it's awesome.
This week: an entire post dedicated to the work of Periscope Studio, whose members paid homage to the films of anime master Hayo Miyazaki!
