Less morbid and generally more pleasant than it sounds
I was going through some old pictures and I found these that I made a few years back.
Story: My friend (now girlfriend) told me about this creature called the platypus bear that really freaked her out on Avatar: The Last Airbender. Being that I knew nothing about it, but loved to mess with her, I looked up what a platypus bear was and started photoshopping them into pictures of her and then of pictures from around the world (I don’t have attribution anymore, but I will try to find it!).
Anyway, I thought I would share since that’s what Tumblr’s for!
P.S. Sorry for my shitty handwriting.
