Terrible Ariel - My New Obsession

This is “Terrible Ariel”. And, this is a link to the Terrible Ariel tumblr.

It's a gallery of illustrations inspired by a knockoff Little Mermaid coin bank purchased at a Mexican grocery store. 

You can submit your own images based on this amazing find. 

Since it was a really busy day at work I only had a minute (literally) to do my own. A brief moment of inspiration from my new muse, Terrible Ariel. 

Here she is!  LOL

So over the weekend I went to a county fair, and some booths were selling these sets of shitty knockoff Pokémon cards along with equally shitty knockoff toys. Upon taking a closer look I realized that the names they came up with for the Pokémon are amazing, so I’ve compiled some of the visible ones. 

“Lord Flower”

“Common Carp King”

“Pond Dragon”

“Big Beaked Mew”


“Gas Bomb”

“Bird Moudo”

“Volcano Ox”

and my personal favorite,

“Three in One Magnetic Monster”

Each card also has a “skill” listed on the very bottom, and some of them are… interesting.

“Fierce Blood Sucker”

“Broken Pottery”


“Turn Around and Fall”

“Tray of Broken Plates”
