It's National Pancake Day! We may not go as crazy as the Brits do, but we still celebrate. Seriously. It's gonna take everything for us not to sneak off on our lunch breaks to the nearest IHOP for a free short stack. Hell, we're doin' it. And now we can't wait 'til 12:30 rolls around...

In the meantime, let's celebrate by taking a look at the work of the King of Pancakes, Kevin Blankenship. Initials and smiley faces just won't do for this illustrator and father of two (you're scoring mad dad points, BTW), he creates delicious art.

He fills his Instagram feed with some damn impressive pancakes. He uses a squeeze bottle filled with batter and literally draws his magical creations onto the pan. He also adds a little extra milk and uses an electric mixer to make sure everything's as smooth as possible. Check out some below. Even if you can't snag these today, you can keep 'em in mind as you scarf those silver dollars...
