A shift in direction

imageOn September 30, 2014, this blog will magically transform from Fancy Portraits of Really Important People to Meathead’s Gluten-Free Dailies. As the name implies, there will still be a new drawing every day, but instead of limiting myself to drawings of famous jerks, it’ll be just, you know, whatever. Not to say that I won’t still be doing pictures of the aforementioned famous jerks from time to time, but it won’t be just that. Anything goes. I’ve been doing this for over three and a half years now, so I think it’s about time to mix things up a little.

I actually have no idea what I’m going to do. It’s a little scary, to be honest. But I like to challenge myself. I’m sure there will be a lot of straight up fall-flat-on-my-ass failures, but hopefully I’ll manage to throw in a few cool ones every so often.

I’d also like to use this as an opportunity to interact with you, the audience. What do you guys think? Do you have an idea you’d like me to tackle in this new phase of the project? Send it on over, and if I end up using it, I’ll give you credit and you can tell all your friends and they’ll think you’re totally cool. You do want to be cool, right? Of course you do.

So, that’s that. Just a couple more weeks of famous people and then it’s on to drawings of other stuff. Exciting times.

Oh, while I’m here writing stuff, please allow me to plug my Society6 art store some more. You can buy real nice prints and shirts of many of my drawings there. And right now you can even get free shipping! How about that.

Looking forward to providing you with excessive amounts of art in the years to come.

Love,
Meathead
