Lothlenan, who is based in Canada, told BuzzFeed News that they are a "huge nerd" when it comes to anime, video games and cartoons, and that the idea first came to them while studying the painting "Mr and Mrs Andrews" by Thomas Gainsborough.

"By the time I finished the background, I decided I wanted to do something fun with it," they said.

"I was taught that the painting was kind of an exhibition of that couple's wealth. And Lemongrab is an earl in the show Adventure Time, who I felt would share in that desire to show all of what's his.

"Plus I probably just really wanted to draw the big nose."
