It was with much sadness that fans of Alan Rickman learned of his passing last week. But as always, the fan community has channeled these feelings into creating art dedicated to preserving the memory of the great artist’s vast career in movies.
Whether you remember him as Hans Gruber, Snape, or one of his many other terrific characters, Alan Rickman live on our hearts forever. Accio, tissues.

Another Snape tribute, this little plaster statuette and gets every detail just right, even at a mere 4-inches-by-3-inches.

Die Hard cookies art by Ryan Savas
This digital work of art brings Die Hard to life in cookies. Now that’s one reboot I’d love to see. (But if only these were real cookies…)
