A Masterclass in Art: The Legend of Roberto Plankton


Hello there, so I am Panzadolphin56 and I thought I would do something a little different with this blog from my usual writings. I do actually have a number of things written up that I need to find space to put up at some point but I felt as though this was something that needed to go up first.

So today I would like to tell you about a friend of mine, a very unique person, with a very special gift. His name is Roberto Plankton, and he is an artist. But Roberto Plankton is no ordinary artist, for he exist somewhere outside of the norm; a creature born of the darkness who brings terror to the minds of the young and weak of constitution. With his simple tools to hand he etches nightmares onto canvas, giving life to a humour most dark; and I think you should see some of them.

Once he painted me...

Other times he has sought to guide those who enter the forums...

Or even warn them about what to expect...

The only rhyme or reason to Plankton craftings being that somewhere, far off, in the deepest darkness, an elder god, entombed for eons must roll over and chuckle in its sleep before a picture is sanctified as a Plankton Original.

And his craftings are many...

Like a master craftsman he tirelessly labours at each new project, working night and day to terrify and bewilder. Like a less fat and altogether scarier Santa, bringing gifts most foul.

If you like to be afraid then I dare you to step into his domain, bask in the purity of the darkness that resides within him (and appreciate his work some), and find escape from this dire world of ours:

The Art of Roberto Plankton

Or better yet, step into a realm where nightmares are given birth...

A World of Nightmares.

(Just don't go through google search.)

And with that said, I would like to leave you with my own tribute to the genius, to the madness that is the man Roberto Plankton:

About Panzadolphin56one of us since 9:54 AM on 05.06.2011

Oh hey!

I'm former male model and celebrity nutritionist Panzadolphin56. This is my blog. I write things here.

...in case the blog bit didn't give that away.

Anyway! To the left you'll find my latest blogs, and beneath this you'll find a fairly comprehensive list of most of what I've written over the years (unfortunately some stuff does eventually get bumped off the list.)

I like to write from a fairly critical standpoint about games, usually analysis or talking about issues that interest me, I also do retrospectives from time to time, talk about games I've been playing, write the funny things that come into my head, and very occasionally do some crappy art.

I hope you enjoy what you read!

I also do Lets Plays (mostly old horror games) so if that's your thing then click here:


Everyone who clicks will not win a million dollars!


A little about me:

I am mostly a story person, good mechanics are good mechanics but button pressing never does anything for me. I like Horror, I like Cyberpunk, I like Neo-Noir (especially crossed with Cyberpunk), I like good art and good writing, I like games that cut against the grain or choose to challenge social or industry norms in some way.

I don't have a single favourite game but I am a big fan of the MGS games, Snatcher, the Forbidden Siren series, Silent Hill 2, the old-school Resident Evils, Advance Wars and Power Dolls, among many, many others.
