In school we were interpreting a painting from Slovak artist Erik Šille called Wave (Vlna). He used a lot of pop-culture references, but we didn't recognize this little sailor. Is he from a cartoon or a commercial?

  • While I see Bender, I'm not sure what makes you think this particular character is SF&F related... – Zeiss Ikon Nov 22 '19 at 13:21
  • @ZeissIkon The painting also has Pikachu and some other SFF characters in it so it's possible the character is SFF-nal too. – TheLethalCarrot Nov 22 '19 at 13:21
  • I have a feeling it might be his son. I've reached out to the artist though for confirmation. – TheLethalCarrot Nov 22 '19 at 13:46
  • Ditto. Sent him an email. – FuzzyBoots Nov 22 '19 at 13:52
