In July, a guy onboard a Toronto-bound flight took a picture of a meteorological phenomenon called a fire rainbow. It proceeded to go viral online. One month later, the picture finally got around to my Facebook feed. So what did I do? Well, naturally I went, ‘Wowwwwwwwwwww’.
A waterfall in the Yosemite National Park, glowing in rainbows. We first saw a picture of this by Canadian photographer Justin Lee while reading The Bangkok Post, and when we saw it again online, we had the indescribable urge to do rainbow jumps and crash into stars in the excellent Robot Unicorn Attack game straight away. Which is what happened next.

There’s nothing crazy about fanart, just with Nicky Barkla. Well known characters, turn psychedelic creations, exploding the color spectrum and our loveable icons portray a whole new persona. A tasteful contradiction, if you will. I came across the art through one of the many links flooding the Internet. I’m seeing new colors in my day from this point on.
