Pendleton Ward, creator of the amazing and wonderful cartoon series ‘Adventure Time’ and instrumental figure in the coterie of artists changing the face of children’s entertainment, has been known to go off the rails on Twitter every once in a while.
So it’s not so surprising that yesterday, he made a silly decision.
First, he tweeted this rather epic drawing inspired by a video of a man turning his life into VR.

Then he decided to just keep drawing about it.
Maybe I’ll only tweet about VR for a little while. — `+! VR INFORMER ¡+` (@buenothebear) August 12, 2015
So, changing his name to “
I wanna tilt my oculus down off my nose and look cool.. y’know? pic.twitter.com/rKYyCuPvv9

Others are starting to join, too, to tweet their own drawings about VR.

So be a part of the magic, at least until Ward decides to pick up Quest Attack again.
