Looking back can be painful... at least for me it is. I was such a horrible geek in Middle school and High school, I don't know how I ever survived. Not that I'm any better now, I've just changed into a horrible nerd. But, the nerd life is a lot more fun so I've got no complaints.
I did this little therapeutic exercise because everyone else was doing it. Stuart showed me a bunch of blogs of artists who decided to draw their own interpretations of themselves as teens, and I was immediately inspired. It really was fun to make fun at myself from being an awkward little band geek, turning into my annoyingly confident (in my head) nerdy self. (Yes, thats a Scott Campbell ninja on my shirt.)
I've given up on being cool, because its impossible, save for two or three people on the planet. I think everyone is a nerd, but most are just in denial about it.
Some of those artists that also did this little exercise are:
Dave (the guy who started the whole thing)
josh·u·a post meridiem
Super Karate Monkey Death Car
and Stuart Livingston!!!
Oh my god there are so many! I can't put them all on here, so just go here for a list of ALL the artists!
