There was a thread about this in 2016 - The “I did an image search for my vocabulary and found this” thread! - but I need to find some new words that are a joy to image search.

I’m in the thick of the 死 levels of kanji, almost to 地獄, and I’m drowning in reviews and lessons. For the first time, it’s been weeks since I’ve been in the 0/0 club (0 lessons, 0 reviews… what’s that thread called?) I need some 激励. お願いします!
