This is a tipsy penguin wearing a green sierra nevada t-shirt. He likes how beer makes him feel warm, fuzzy and relaxed. When he goes to sleep he has comfortable dreams of swimming in warm clear tropical waters with day glow fishes. When he swims he moves at high speed in large sweeping arcs – with the kind of grace he never has when he waddles around on land sober.
Rainbow fish live in the brackish warm mud puddles of summer thunderstorms. They poke their eyes up out of the water to look around and bite the toes of unsuspecting kids who splash next to them with bare feet.
This is a silly tree with sunglasses. He is a chad tree and he has a squirrel friend and a nice car. He is the envy of shrubs and other trees.
This is a purple monster who lives in the Slushy you bought on a hot summer day as a kid. If you drink it too fast he will freeze your brain solid. He is squishy and sweet and grape flavored.
This is a nasty green monster destroying a laptop. He likes to chew on ram and break processors by digesting them. He bangs on keyboards till they break and he loosens screws and cracks screens. He lives to destroy stuff.
This is James the orange monster drinking coffee to wake up. It makes his brain snap and crackle like oil in a frying pan. He likes to drink two giant cups and talk about the Drake equation with his monster friends.
This is Scott the grilled cheese sandwich. He is just two slices of toasted bread and some cheddar cheese.
I used to watch Bob Ross as a kid. I had a crappy tv in my room with no cable so all I had was GPTV and The Joy of Painting was my favorite show. I loved how soothing and friendly his persona was as he flew through a single painting in 30 minutes. He was like a friend and a teacher on TV before twitch was ever a thing. Bob died of Lymphoma in the 90s. RIP Bob.
The ice cream truck was a big deal when I was a kid. I remember hearing it around dusk during summer vacation with its creepy happy classical music box tunes. I have euphoric memories of superstars and bomb pops with fireflies floating on warm summer breezes and frozen happy sun burnt faces as night approached in slow motion.
This is a Yes Man Jr. He is one of the first bad guys encountered by Nes in EarthBound. EarthBound is an amazing action RPG and it is one of the first console games I can remember with great art that was made to fit the crude sprite limitations of early consoles. Because of this concerted effort to make sassy stylized hand drawn art – it hasn’t aged at all since it was released. Now modern games are swimming with this kind of art but at the time it stood out.
