Relentlessly cheerful artist James Hance (previously featured here) painted this incredible “Adventure Timey-Wimey” mural on his 9-year-old daughter Maddy’s wall. From the Gunter Daleks to the BMO TARDIS to the Ice King as a Weeping Angel, it’s almost unbearably wonderful.
But wait, it gets even better because the whole concept was Maddy’s to start with:
"She had the idea for an Adventure Time / Doctor Who crossover, and had all the characters mapped out (You can see where I get my ideas from!)"
Prints of this awesome mash-up are currently available via James Hance’s website.
Here’s what she says about it:
Cosmic owls are not what they seem.
2013 was the year I finally got around to watching Twin Peaks and Adventure Time. After watching them back to back with mentalguyart and yutrzenika, we couldn’t help but start drawing parallels between the two. mentalguyart and I have decided to do a series of occasional AT/TP mash-up images.
We can’t wait to see more of this awesome series.

Sunnyvale, CA-based artist Hoang Tran (previously featured here) continues to create so many awesome pop culture-based crayon sculptures that we can’t help but share some more. Last time we featured crayon sculptures of Adventure Time characters. Today we’re treated to carved and painted pieces from Doctor Who, Spirited away, Star Wars, Hellboy, The Sandman, and sweet little BMO (who was still a work in progress last time).

Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).
The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.
It’s a delightfully unconventional play on classic colouring books. But jeez, we never realized that Jessica Rabbit was suffering from such severe spinal curvature. Ouch.

Here’s something awesome to look forward to on Thanksgiving besides the feast itself and seemingly endless leftovers: There’s going to be an Adventure Time balloon in the 87th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The balloon will feature best friends Finn and Jake, who will no doubt be having the time of their lives floating above the streets of New York City with so many tiny friends waving up at them.
NBC will broadcast the parade on Thursday, November 28th, 2013 from 9 AM to 12 PM (in all time zones).

Michael Thomas, a software developer and LEGO enthusiast based in Vancouver, BC, created this awesome LEGO replica of BMO, Finn and Jake's living video game console friend, who also functions as a portable electrical outlet, music player, roommate, camera, alarm clock, toaster, flashlight, strobe light, skateboarder, soccer player, video editor, and video player.
But wait, this isn’t just a LEGO model of BMO, it’s also a functioning computer - just like BMO! Although this little version can’t make toast or show off her sweet skateboarding skillz, she’s got a fully functional portable Raspberry Pi Linux computer and a 2.5” screen inside those LEGO bricks, which means she can be used to play video games and go online.

We’re delighted to introduce you to another awesome artist who uses crayons as their medium of choice. Sunnyvale, CA-based artist Hoang Tran has a serious knack for carving pop culture characters out of crayons. Lately he’s been working on the cast of Adventure Time. He’s also tackled character from Star Wars, Futurama, and even the house sigils from Game of Thrones.
We’ve just discovered a new member of the Department of Awesome Parenting. Meet Derek Benson, a father and video game developer in Atlanta, Georgia who, since 2008, has been spending his lunch breaks illustrating his kids’ lunch bags with completely awesome illustrations. Derek uses oil pastels and Sharpie pens to decorate plain brown paper bags with characters from his children’s favourite cartoons, movies, books, and video games.
