We love this tentacular Cthulhu chess set. This is the work of Kelsey of LittleFatDragons based in Clayton, North Carolina. Kelsey handmakes each playfully evil piece without using casting or molds, so the chess set is one-of-a-kind.
He may be evil, but Cthulhu is just too stinking cute in this handmade chess set. The Little Fat Cthulhu Custom Chess Set is made to order so you can go with the traditionally evil green and purple or change it up with colors of your choosing.
Here’s what you’ll find on your Cthulhu chess board.
Pawns – Little Fat Tentacles
Rooks – Rhogog
Knights – Zvilpogghua
Bishops – Chaugnar Faugn
Queens/Kings – Little Fat Cthulhu

You think your job sucks?
Marcin Bialas is a Polish artist who’s specialized in etchings and drawings in black an white. Among his large production, a recurring theme is dissected buildings and surreal constructions, such as infinite staircases and labyrinthine interiors, an atemporal combination of G.B. Piranesi and Brodsky/Utkin prints. The structures seem unfinished, yet already in ruin, able to plunge the viewer into an uncomfortable feeling. Somewhere between nightmares and theatrical settings, Marcin Bialas’ retro drawings explore the dramatic potential of different projections and points of view.
Last year, around middle of last year, I believe, I quit drawing official sketch card sets. But, back in 2011 or early 2012, I promised myself if there’s ever an Adventure Time card series that I would totally join it in a heartbeat. Then, around the end of last year, Cryptozoic announced they’re doing an Adventure Time sketch card series so I took myself out of retirement one… last… time… to participate.
So, they just announced that we can now show our approved sketch cards, so here they are!
I had 6 cards rejected. An Ice Queen (I guess I did draw her boobs too big in that one), a Slime Princess (yeah, no idea why), a Prismo and the other three are the mafia-style line-up drawing (the one you see at the end of this set with Ice King, Flame Princess and Marceline) featuring Finn, Jake and Princess Bubblegum (and I liked PB’s gunmoll style line-up sketch card I did too T_T), but, you know, if it’s rejected, it’s rejected and we are not allowed to show them.
So anyways, yeah, Adventure Time sketch cards, drawn in my own style and rendition.
Me and my friend painted two portal murals at school.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
