This Portrait Of Adventure Time‘s Ice King And Gunter Is Emotional


The Ice King’s journey from the caring human Simon Petrikov to an insane, lonely wizard with no memory of his past is possibly the most tragic aspect of Adventure Time, which we all know is surprisingly horrifying to begin with. Artist James Hance is no doubt aware of this fact, and created this painting, titled “I Remember You,” either to pay tribute to The Ice King’s story and his relationship with Marceline the Vampire Queen, or to make me want to cry at work. Tom Kenny, the voice of the Ice King, even weighed in on the portrait of Simon and penguin-companion Gunter, saying,

Mind blowing. This man is GOOD! This is kind of Adventure Time meets Clash of the Titans. “Release the penguin!”

Hance is auctioning off the painting on Ebay, and the current bid is $355, with almost a full 3 days to go before bidding closes.

    HEY! My surname is Gunter. It’s a rare name, especially the spelling. Usually it’s Gunther.

    ‘I Remember You’ and ‘Simon & Marcy’ have made the Ice King one of my favourite characters. Go back and watch any of the episodes before those. Knowing his past puts everything he says and does during into such a tragic light. In a way, Finn and Jake can be seen as villains in their treatment of this damaged, elderly man.

    I kinda want to have all of the James Hance paintings. He’s seriously talented.

    I have yet to encounter a piece of James Hance artwork I haven’t liked. I also *love* his children’s book, “Wookiee the Chew” (a satire of Winnie the Pooh using Star Wars characters).

    After learning the Ice King’s background he is one of my favorite characters. I have watched “I remember you” and “Simon and Marcy” repeatedly with lots of tears.

    I am so diabolically responsible for getting that quote from Tom to James. I feel mighty special about my part in that. So glad this painting is doing so well. I knew it was special and Tom had to see it the moment James posted it’s work in progress.
