It's not easy being a cine/schedia/adipophile by Maxtaro It's not easy being a cine/schedia/adipophile by Maxtaro
A couple of days ago, I attended a London Comic Con as I've been inclined to do for the past couple of years. I was lucky enough to have pictures taken with Biff, Doc Brown, Silent Bob and Samurai Jack in the flesh, and it's common that I would get to see these people in person; the director of Baby Driver walked right past me after the UK premiere of a hidden gem called Prevenge. When I got back, I responded to a stupid fart joke from the new PPG with a stupid fart joke from the old PPG, as it's nothing new for any of these three girls to toot. That farting Powerpuff post got 15 likes. The three photos I shared that evening got only one.

This comparison may be unfair because it was a reply, but a good look at my Twitter analytics sums it up: I guess I'm just too into the real world. Few people really care what I see, which is understandable given that the countless films I've paid to see appeal to an acquired taste, but I get little response whenever I see these talented actors and filmmakers in person, even when they're Hawkeye. Is it the relatively small amount of followers I have on Twitter, or am I not doing quite enough to get my luck noticed? Basically the trials of being part of a tiny group of friends on Film Twitter while under humongous support by folks from Animation Tumblr, and also earning some form of recognition as an artist by drawing almost nothing but fatty wank very slowly and lazily. Welcome to my conflicted, crazy life.

Thats really depressing. You got something cool to share with your followers but they only get your attention through fetish art of certain characters. I feel bad for you man.

I feel kinda bad for asking for a standalone version of that Lori pic. That being said, how awesome that you met Phil LaMarr, you lucky bastard.

Huh, you know how I feel. I try something awesome, nobody cares. When I do something inflation/Weight Gain/other weird fetishy "shtuff", people pay attention. Aaand then throw in a character from something like MLP, Steven Universe, or in your case, the Loud house, people go ape dookie.

But that's awesome you got photos from various voice actors.

Who cares if others don't care,meeting this kind of people is awesome.And I'm not saying it to cheer you up,I actually think it because it happened to me too.I saw Mika Kobayashi singing live on a small stage and I was in the front row.So she was really close.

It's cool that you managed to get yourself photographed with such famous people, especially Christopher Lloyd. And even though I don't draw fatty stuff, I'm with MrTheAmazingDude in that I know the feeling of working my ass off on certain projects but people only seem to care about a specific type of work I do.

I know the feeling, (even though I don't draw fatty wank) I work my ass off on all kinds of projects, And all people care about are the stuff that related to memes.

You managed to get a photo with him? Nice! :D

Exactly how you'd expect. Of course, this was when he was walking out from his Q&A, so he squeezed in time to have a photo with me thanks to a relatable security guard.
