Roundup of Unusual Size: Don’t Hate

(fanart by kianess @ deviantArt!)

You know you can find art of basically anything online? I don’t even mean porn. I just wanted to pull up something to show Rowan Kaiser up on a very serious topic (whether bangs and wavy tresses makes a girl look like she’s wearing a headcrab–turns out it does, but that doesn’t diminish her charm) and two seconds of google later I had this, just to prove my point. D’awww, headcrabs. More adorable than you’d think.

(I also seem to owe Christine Love dirty Digital: A Love Story fanart now, but that’s a story for another day.)

Happy 100th Birthday, Marshall McLuhan
