I’d recently come to the conclusion that I needed to do more regular artwork to keep the brain juices going, even if only one quick doodle per day. To this end, I began privately doodling some of my friends’ Twitter userpics.
I’d done a few and realized that the best thing to do with my growing collection of userpic doodles would be to start posting them on their own dedicated Twitter account, and throw the general Twitter public into the mix. Hence, twitter.com/RobDrawsYourPic.
Now friends, acquaintances, luminaries, and total strangers are all finding find themselves receiving my unsolicited mutations of their avatars, and I’ve even fulfilled some requests. It’s a good excuse to not only get some sort of drawing done every day, but to try out some different styles.
So far folks on the tweetybirds seem to be digging it, or at least taking it in stride. A couple of people have even changed their userpic to my version, which is entirely wild. I’m sure I’ll creep someone out eventually, though.
