Well, in my last post, I commented on how my internet fame stock was on the rise.

Well, just a few minutes ago, I was talking about drawing on twitter, tweeted this pic (that was suggested by Kato late last year) and wondered what Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins (That's Gabe and Tycho of Penny Arcade) thought about it.

Minutes later, Jerry retweeted the picture. Just the very idea that Jerry has seen some of my artwork and liked it blows my muthaf**king mind…seriously, there are no two artists I admire or respect more in the world…without wanting to gush…fuck it, I'm gonna gush…just the fact that these guys were vaguely aware that I exist for a second is awesome…and the fact that my artwork went out to over 32,000 people is just icing on the cake.

As usual, Sunny was completely underwhelmed. The whole 'internet fame' thing…but what she doesn't realize is that, in the geeksphere, this is like David Beckham complimenting you on your ball control, Robert De Niro complimenting you on your acting…or William fucking Shakespeare saying he liked your short story.

I'll admit it. I'm on a massive high. This has made my week…maybe even the month.

I seriously can't remember the last time I was in this good of a mood.

[Edit: 30 minutes after posting this, I checked my email to discover an email from Brad Guigar of 'Evil Incorporated', letting me know he was putting some of my fan art on his site. Today just keeps getting better and better.]

So I'm assuming that it would be like....Paula Deen featuring one of MY recipes on her show? or something along THAT line????
Then THAT is so awesome, Babe!!!
Sorry about being a bit underwhelmed- but it's not been the best day for me and I wasn't paying complete attention to what it was you was talking about. I heard the word Twitter and it faded to a slight buzz....... My Bad!

Holy Shit! Very cool! Makes a good case for 'do what you enjoy, just for the love of it, and you'll be glad you did'!
