Unlike most painters, Dave Pollot doesn’t start with a blank canvas. He hunts for abandoned paintings at thrift shops and then gives them new details that take them from the kind of thing that you’d likely find hanging at your grandmother’s or an old motel, to the kind of thing that gets you international attention from geeks.

Fans of of almost every geek niche will find something they love in one of Pollot’s paintings. We’ve picked some of our favorites that highlight Star Wars, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Super Mario Bros, Doctor Who, Futurama, Transformers, and more.

If you like what you see, you can head over to Pollot’s Etsy shop and pick up prints of just about all of them.
