Time Cowboy art will make you feel feelings and stuff

Those pesky "emotions." How dare videogames make me feel things! How dare artists like Zac Gorman and Matthew Taranto remind me that videogames make me feel things!

You can add Aussie illustrator Jake Lawrence to that the list of sensitivity cases. Jake's website Time Cowboy is a collection of short comics and standalone pieces, many based on videogames. He recently drew a trilogy of Wind Waker strips, the first two of which you can see in the header, but his big focus is on the Animal Crossing series, in which there is no shortage of material for observational humor, introspection, and pure whimsy.

I had a nice laugh over the Mario Kart piece guest starring Thor, if only because I was just re-watching Thor last night. The coincidental timing was just too perfect. What tickles you guys? Check out the gallery below, then check out Jake's page for even more goodies.
