In between client projects I do a webcomic called Sketchbook Silliness. My most recent cartoon (“Mohawk”) was posted on various social media yesterday. I was floored to see that it is zoomed up the charts on both Imgur and Reddit, reaching “Most Viral” on Imgur. After about 24 hours the cartoon finally leveled off at over 93,000 views/1,600 likes on Imgurand 189,000 views/18,600 likes on the Reddit’s “Comics” subreddit. If I add in the totals from other subreddits and misc. social media, it got over 300,000 total views!
I’m blown away and I just wanted to share the good news. I also want to say a HUGE thank you to all of my Patreon backers for giving me some support as I hone my skills! It’s really encouraging to see that sometimes the effort and support are coming together to make something people like.
