Oh yeah… It probably is.
10 is by luke chueh and 11 is by buff monster.
SUPER DOPE!! I'm guessing that the second picture is by Gary Baseman. The third is by Aya Kakeda. Fourth is by Junko Mizuno? Fifth is by Tado. I don't know who did the sixth one. Seventh (my favorite) is by Joe Ledbetter. I don't know the eighth one. Ninth is by Luke Chueh. Tenth is by, once again, Tado. And the eleventh is by MAD. Correct me if I'm wrong.
