Binary System Podcast – Our Favorite DeviantArtists

Binary System is on the road this week, and we’ll return with an episode next Thursday. In the meantime we did what we love to do: browse through our favorite artists over on DeviantArt. Here’s a handful of the ones we were lingering over this week (all images below are Safe For Work, though a few of the artists have some deliciously NSFW images in their galleries, just in case your boss is looking over your shoulder.)

Superhero Sworn in to City Council

Binary System Fan Art Gallery – 2016 Tributes

Obviously, 2016 was a tough year in terms of losing celebrities we love. And if you know anything about Binary System, you know we love a good piece of fan art, especially the ones that kick us right in the feels.

This collection is just a tiny portion of the art that pays tribute to a tiny portion of the well-known people who passed away. There’s no way that we can get everybody, but if you have a bit of memorial fan art you’ve found (or made!) please send it over so we can add it.

And geez, cross your fingers that we don’t have anybody else to add to the list in the next three days.

Academy Awards 2016: Appetizers for Your Party!

The Academy Awards are fast approaching. We are not attending, so we can eat what we want because we do not have to fit in that dress or tux! I personally love appetizers.
