G.I. Joe Celebrates the Winter Solstice with a Giant Pink Tentacle Monster

destro15

For those of you who don't keep up with astronomical milestones, today is The Winter Solstice! It's the longest night of the year, and it's an event that's influenced winter celebrations in cultures all across the world. In ancient Rome, for instance, it gave rise to Saturnalia and the tradition of exchanging presents in the middle of winter that continues to this day. And in Scotland, it's a time to get together with your family to honor the hot pink Cthulhu monster that lives in your basement with a human sacrifice.

Or at least, that's what I've learned from watching G.I. Joe. Okay, okay, so maybe that particular tradition is limited solely to one James McCullen XXIV, better known to America's daring, highly trained special missions force as Cobra's resident international arms dealer, Destro. Then again, considering that the only other major fact I know about Scotland is that there's a secret castle for teen wizards somewhere up there, it seems pretty plausible that this just some local custom.

Sad Baby Monsters: Cthulhu and the Rancor Just Need a Hug

sadcthulhu-1303840092

A few weeks ago, we posted a set of redesigns by students at the Savannah College of Art and Design inspired by Marvel's American Panther, including one by SCAD's own Jackie Lewis. I had the chance to meet Jackie this past weekend at Fluke 2011 in Athens, GA, and it turns out that turning the Red Skull into an icon of American patriotism isn't the only incredible transformation she's pulled off -- she's also done a set of Sad Baby Monsters that show a softer side of horrors, from mythological beasts like the Hydra and the Chimera, all the way down to pop culture icons like Cthulhu and The Rancor from Star Wars...
