Friendship is magic, but you know what’s even more magical? Interspecies friendship. More specifically, the friendship between a rodent and his giant sentient tree friend.
Yeah, we’re looking at you Rocket Raccoon and Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Not only did they make us laugh (and cry, GROOOOOOOOOOOOOOT), they legit saved the universe with their friendship. How many times have you done that with your best buds? (And no, totally destroying a calzone doesn’t count as saving the universe. But we respect you for it nonetheless. Cheers.)
In homage to our favorite space pals, we rounded up the cutest art that celebrates their bro-dom. Because what says “space warriors who also make us feel good about the world” like fan art? Nothing, that’s what.
