There’s no crying in crime-fighting (except from the criminals maybe).

Artist Miguel Vasquez has created some renders of SpongeBob and Patrick in real life, and he really managed to capture that whole terrifying abomination thing. They’re really quite impressive, but the best is yet to come… [click to continue…]

Another gem from artist Brian Kesinger. Apparently, a print of this Firefly and Rogue One mashup will be available in his Etsy store in July.

Artist Max Degtyarev has created a stunning cutaway illustration of Finn and Jake’s tree fort from Adventure Time. I could look at it all day. [click to continue…]

A Baby Groot from the crowd at Disneyland’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout ride delivered more dancing and more cuteness than is reasonable in a video that is only 12 seconds long. Enjoy the hell out of it below. [click to continue…]
