Rice A Roni

May 27, 2012

I really need to write more on this thing, at least enough so that I don’t have to preface each post with “I really need to write more on this thing.” But with all the time I’ve been spending on my daily drawings, it’s been tough to switch gears from drawing mode to writing mode. However, since I’ve still got a little while before this Mad Men torrent is finished downloading, I thought I’d blather a bit about whatever so that stupid Thomas Kincade post wouldn’t be at the top anymore.

It can be tough sometimes to summon the motivation to do these drawings every day, but during this past week or so I’ve been fortunate enough to get retweets on Twitter from both Penn and Teller as well as Drew Carey, each of which caused a significant spike in traffic to my Tumblr. Of course it dropped right back down to normal each time, but hey, I’ll take what I can get. After devoting literally thousands of hours to this project, it’s just nice to occasionally get a bone thrown my way.

It’s not all about recognition, though. If it were, I would have quit a long time ago. But it’s mostly a challenge to push myself to be the best artist I can be, to have something I can look back on later and say “Yeah, I did that.” And who knows, maybe I can help inspire someone else to do something creative as

Shit, Mad Men‘s done. See ya!
