I'm doing great, Stray! So, this afternoon an animator from one of my favorite web series (Baman Piderman) started following me on Tumblr and Twitter. My question is, do you have any favorite artists that follow YOU?
There are a lot of artists I really admire that follow me for some reason, off the top of my head Thomas Perkins http://tnperkins.tumblr.com/, who’s designed for such cartoons as Big Guy and Rusty, The Batman, Ben 10, Spectucular Spider-Man, and most recently Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, I really love his work and have admired it for quite a while, so I had to do a double take when I saw that he was following me.
Also Bobby Rubio http://bobbyrubio.tumblr.com/ who works at Pixar, and worked on Avatar the Last Airbender. I’m still confused by why super talented people like this would follow me.
Also, not an artist, but Mark Andrew Smith http://markandrewsmith.tumblr.com/ who writes some comics I really enjoy like The Amazing Joy Buzzards and Gladstone’s School For World Conquerors.
It’s a little absurd to me that people like this are even aware that I exist, let alone look at things that I do. To be honest it makes me a little self-conscious and makes me want to do better things worthy of looking at by this caliber of people.
