I do sincerely apologize to our baker’s dozen of regular readers for lack of posts lately. More importantly, I’d never be able to forgive myself if I didn’t acknowledge the birthday of one of my all-time favorite cartoon characters!
Happy Birfday, Double D! Art by Poschki
Yep, Donald Duck turned the rip old of age of 77 back on June 9th, so I thought I’d honor Disney’s ill-tempered water fowl with his very own Fan Art Friday, finding as many pieced of fan crafted pieces as I could scare up over at DeviantArt.com. If you dig any of the art below as much as I did, why not follow the provided links and let the artist know yourself?

World of WarCraft fans should get a kick out of mickeymonster‘s piece
Speaking of video games, akumath‘s duck sprite work rules beyond belief
Back to the sad and disturbing thanks to Johannek. Wait, did he just kill Daisy’s grave?
Okay, back to the cheerful. Hopefully this makes you as happy as it makes me. Thanks again to CrystalMask

Very nice, Markside
Okay, we saw a lot of this after Disney bought Marvel. But let’s be honest, Donald as Hulk is the most approprite. Good on ya, aeolus06
Oh! Did you think me and lokiescape would let you get out of here without a few semi-disturbing depictions?
And I’ll leave you with this Kingdom Hearts inspired ladyboy cosplay. Thanks Hopie-chan
That’s it! And once again, a very happy birthday to the world’s most famous duck. And the last thing you should to to celebrate DD’s B-Day is watch none other than “Donald’s Birthday.” It’s the amazing 1949 cartoon that’s probably most famous for being awesome enough to force kids to smoke!
