Pendleton Ward's Cartoon Tumblr

Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo We’ve so been looking forward to this. Today marks the release of Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo, a 352-page oral history/art book tracing the eight-year history of Pen Ward’s cartoon. There’s so, so much information in here, along with an awful lot of unseen art (like these Steve Wolfhard designs for “Be More”). Congratulations to author Chris McDonnell and Abrams editor Eric Klopfer on a wonderfully excellent job.

iguanamouth: recently i was approached by boom studios with an offer to do an ADVENTURE TIME COMIC COVER, and i jumped on the chance to be a part of a series that ive always enjoyed a whole dang lot after submitting three potential designs we went with my personal favorite, the one with a big ol nod to m.c. escher. even if it doesnt get chosen as an official cover i still had a lot of fun with the design ! and id imagine if escher was still around to see it hed say something like “how did i get here” and “whats going on”. haha classic escher M.C. Escher would love this if he were alive. He’d also be 116 years old. (via fuckyesfinnandjake)
