So about a week ago, I asked every artist, designer, friend, and cactus I knew to draw me a picture of the lovable Nintendo character, Wario. To be honest, I'm not sure what really inspired this whole thing. I was sitting in Andy Fish's comic class trying to draw a fat ice cream truck driver, and instead I found myself drawing Wario with Hulk arms (pictured below). I thought it was silly, and I started texting people, asking them to join in on the fun that is drawing fat, comical, recognizable cartoon characters.
After a few of my closest friends had eagerly given me some drawings, I started asking around at school and on the internets, sort of as a test to see who would put in the effort or make the time. I said that even a 5-minute doodle would be fine - just do it. People asked what it was for, and I said it was for me. That also changed up the playing field for people who would enter. Knowing it didn't need to be "good" or in a certain format and that I didn't need anything other than the drawing made more peopl
e want to draw. While others, knowing it wasn't "for" anything found really no pressure to do it. (I'm still waiting on a few people, but if they never get to it, I won't cry.)
But here is a showcase of all the people who joined in on this lovely adventure. There were no specifics, just to include the character somehow. Some people really had fun with this, and a lot of people took the time to put their creativity into it. And I think that shows what kind of person you are.
I really want to thank everyone who made me drawings, and I hope you had fun! I think they all turned out hilarious and awesome.
