I have absolutely been obsessed since I discovered Gravity Falls a several months ago and was really upset when they ended the show. That series finale brought me to tears... but I find the best way to handle a tragedy is through art!
So I created 12 custom fan art versions of the characters from Gravity Falls. The first 6 main characters, Dipper, Mabel, Wendy, Stan, Soos and Waddles were modified from the work of The Oluk on instagram. I changed the eyes, the noses, some colours, hair styles, and some other minor things.
The other 6 characters, Stanford Pines, Robbie, Bill Cipher, Gideon, Pacificia, and Old Man McGucket are completely my own fan art designs.
I also created a 12 pack of Gravity falls cupcake toppers featuring all the symbols from the Cypher Wheel, a tiny Bill Cipher and Journal #3.

Jack's Empty Space (not sure if the person behind the page is the artist or not), but I took this pixel art and modified it greatly to look more true to the cartoon characters.
The original pixel art I found.
These pieces are available in my etsy shop for $15 each or $25 for the set. These are big pieces and best for framing or mounting on a canvas but you could also get them with magnets.

He is made completely out of perler fused beads. He works on a slot and tab system to snap together to make a base that holds a fake flickering tea light that lights him up in the dark to make him look like he is on fire.
You can watch him light up here.
You can purchase this awesome piece for $20 CAN plus shipping on my Etsy Store. He comes with instructions on how to assemble him and the tea light with the battery.

Next Sunday and Monday on Fox, The X-Files will return to the small screen for the first time since 2002. The series which had 9 seasons with 202 episodes and 2 movies (almost a third one) has not been on the air in 14 years but its fandom has never given up on the show nor its beloved actors.
Chris Carter, the series original creator, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis will all be returning to the new series, along with newcomer, Joel Mchale.
The series will only run for 6 episodes which is sad but I am hoping this only means they are testing the waters for an audience to bring back the show on a permanent basis.
The above video is a quick preview of the first minute of the first episode. It's laced with X-Files goodness.
If you also haven't had a chance to watch the special feature "The X-Files Re-Opened" take a minute to watch this 20 minute piece about the new series. It will give you a good idea of what the new series is about without any spoilers.
I was a huge fan of this show back in the day and I still refuse to watch certain episodes of the show because they scared the hell out of me like the ones with Victor Tombs or the one with the cockroaches. I had a huge crush on Mulder and that ended after seeing David Duchovny in Californication. Seeing him naked with a big gut while he is banging some chick and then he pukes on a painting - not sexy at all. Lost my geeky love for him....
