Today, I noticed a pretty cool offer on Twitter. Comics artist Brent Peeples, who was verging on 500 followers, announced he would give away a free pencil sketch to one randomly chosen follower if the magic number was reached by the end of the day. Well, first of all, I thought that was cool, as already mentioned. Then I thought, “Hey! I could do that too!” even though I am not a professional artist. In fact, I haven’t tried drawing anything since I was about six, and have definitely never produced any artwork that anyone in their right mind would pay for or publish.
So I figured, if you can’t offer quality, maybe people will go just as wild for terrible WTF crap, just as long as there’s a LOT of it! The American restaurant industry has always done well with this concept. Sure enough, eight people put in their requests for various works of art, which I dutifully drew to the best of my ability as soon as I got home from work that night.
And here are the results.
And there you have it: my contribution to the arts. There is no need to thank me. The knowledge that there are at least eight other people in the world who are weirder than me is comfort enough.
