Marceline the Vampire Queen, she drinks shades of red.

If you watch Adventure Time, then you know Marceline. If you don’t, then all you really need to know is that she is an axe-bass playing vampire queen who drinks shades of red and really likes her french fries (as do my fries, I’d never steal from Marceline).

What you may not know about Marceline is that she is voiced by one Olivia Olson. “Who?” you ask? Why, she was the little girl who sang, “All I Want for Christmas is You, ” in a little film called Love, Actually. Which is also notable for a role played by my one and only Alan Rickman. Know what else is notable about that film? Alan Rickman’s character is married to a woman named, of all things, Karen. Know what else? HER NEVER ONCE SAYS HER NAME IN THE WHOLE DAMN FILM! At least Liam Neeson does. But not fair.

Winter is coming.

First off, let me apologize. I can think of maybe three people who will get this joke. Two of them might think it’s funny. As for the rest of you...I am so very sorry.

I’ve been taking a little break from drawing in Illustrator because I feel like I really need to learn how to sketch properly. But...well, that doesn't make me want to draw. I bought some books, I bought a stylus. I have tons of sketchbooks, but when you take my beloved Illustrator away I am a sad little bunny.

And then I started reading A Clash of Kings, by George R. R. Martin.

And then I had this idea that I thought was funny, like stupid goofy funny:

But other people have had much better ideas of how to use those name tags.

So then, I thought this was funny.
And yeah, I know that it’s not skewed properly, I slapped it together while I still found it funny. And yeah, I know it’s totally stupid. But sometimes... I totally crack myself up.
