Solon and Thanks is a master of understatement. I'd've gone with "grosses me the hell out and makes me cringe."

Interesting that most of the artists chose to depict themselves as a Pokémon which evolved from something, and will evolve into something else. Probably something profound in there, but I can't find it.

If you read into Steve Wolfhard's Wolfhardest it means he cries in his basement while unleashing his 3 sperm cannons.

It hasn't been updated in over 3 weeks, although I've seen a couple more of them at the artists' own sites. Hopefully, the attention we give it will reawaken the project.

After my post yesterday, I must mention Grickle/Grockle/Grunkle.

honestly, it's kinda awesome to see the nedroid defined as an evolving robot with slight beartato references in its design, kinda awesome.
