One of the coolest things about Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games is the vivid pictures it sears into your mind. And even though we're excited about the movie coming out a week from now, we still cherish those mental images from the book.

That's why it's awesome to look at Hunger Games fan art, for a change from all those movie stills. We've collected some of the most beautiful — and brutal — art depicting Katniss, Peeta, Gale and all the other citizens of Panem. Check out our gallery of Hunger Games art below.
