The Queen and her Kings by humon The Queen and her Kings by humon
And "prince" ;)

When I came across these brown and beige chess pieces I immediately knew I had to take a picture of them as Duncan, Natalie, Niels and Kiddo. :D

I've often been asked why I always place Niels between Duncan and Natalie, or between Kiddo and his parents. It's just a visual thing because Niels is white, so if I place him to the side he looks like he isn't part of the family.

Nice. I used to own a chess with these kinds of pieces. Played it whenever I got the chance.

I saw ducks that reminded me of Niels, Duncan and Natalie the other day. There was this little white one swimming around between a male brown one and a female brown one.

...my boyfriend thought I was crazy. I thought I was awesome.

This is adorable though - I love the little pawn. (Why do I think chess pieces are cute? IDEK anymore ;=_=)

I'm about 99.9999999% positive that's a joke, based on how people are so art-theft-crazy around here and how apparently nobody on here believes that anybody but themselves can actually create original art.

and if it's not a joke... well, who cares? we know it's art.
