10k Views Art Party!

 I will not bore you with an exact official count, nor will I write a lot of bland words to describe to you the feeling I get when I see that my page has been visited over ten thousand times. I almost feel as if five-thousand of those are mine, I'm so vain and insecure. You know I'm pulling your leg, right? I don't visit my own page.


 And now to some art that I've produced during a recent dark(no-inter9t) time.

Floydish-20 triangle series

 I won't be able to thank you all appropriately, but I will try my best at celebrating this 10k with the same enthusiasm as jumping a 100ft hurdle made of bacon over a pond of cheese. I'll party down like I've just wrestled a 2 ton alligator and won! I'll revel in the afterglow like I'd just bedded this years rotation of leading ladies. Yep, you're gonna see me let my hair down(has it ever been up?), and let the whoops and whistles fly!

Singularity- 20 triangle series
 Although, I can't party too hard. I've still got those guest posts I've got to submit. I'm cutting it down to the wire, but at least I've got a few almost finished. After that, I should be good and ready to get a little more than schnockered(darn spell check and it's disbelief in the word 'schnockered').

Mother Shape- 20 triangles

 So, if you get a submission of a guest post that doesn't look right, you can blame me for going a little too far in my celebration of 10k views. I must have switched up the NSFW posts with the clean 'non-blue' ones. I hope I don't brutalize anyone's sensibilities, but bruising them just might be good for a few.

Space Flatulence- 20 triangles series
 I raise both my shot glass and my stein in honor of you great people who visit me. Once we get this train chugging along at 100k views, I will look back at this post and most likely do an epic facepalm. But behind that knobby-fingered mask, I'll have a supreme smile of pride, shining for those of you great people who started me out.

 Thanks, and I'll be working most of the weekend on the guest posts. I should have really done them one at a time, but I'm a glutton for punishment(paddle, anyone?).

 So, until next time, keep it RANDOOM!

    1. Thanks, and thanks. Haha, doublespeak. Watch out for the rare triple entendre.

  3. I could tell, for my leg was definitely moving. Congrats on the 10k. And now I'm all dizzy from staring at your art. :))

    1. I did go through the whole series twisting axis and tweaking weights. It's only natural that it would make someone dizzy. I just hope you have it in you to take in more. Much more.

  4. P.S. Speaking of art.... how come I don't see my iconic blue face?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have often wondered the same thing. I have no idea what happened to the code that shows everyone's icons. I'm afraid to mess with it, in the case that I lose something that I need. I'll get someone who knows what's what to help me place back your iconic blue face.

  5. Great job with the art, really liked the last one. Congrats on the 10K views as well, sure it will keep going up and up.

    1. Thanks, Pat. Nowhere to go but up, and I may even reach your heights one day(even if it's the year 3999).

  6. That is some beautiful art, you ought to make some desktop wallpapers. Also, congrats on the 10k views! Huge milestone!

    1. Thanks, Random Guy. I'll see about making them to wallpaper specs next time, just so some people can enjoy them like that. A dream of mine is to have my art shipped as default desktops and wallpapers for phones.

  7. Congrats on the milestone. Every milestone is one worth celebrating :) The artwork looks great too. I've already hosted one NSFW post (and NSFW doesn't really cover the podcasts I do with Bersercules does it?) so I'm sure I'll be fine with one of those. If children read my blog I'm sure their parents would have stopped them by now.

    1. I do believe that , too. When I first started blogging there was also this other person who gained a huge audience and got hits through the roof almost right away. I remember reading a post of his that gave a formula for success in blogging, but I doubt I've heeded any of his advice. I don't even remember who he is, is that bad?

  8. Congrats on the milestone.
    Oh shoot, I didnt copy from Mark, but came up on my own.

    Guest post? I am running a roast series, so if barista gave you cold espresso, you could redirect that as guest post to me. And I am not going to volunteer guest post like I did for Dan, so feel free to shoot one to my id if you can.

    "I'm a glutton for punishment" you say?
    "I' up for guillotine guest post" :)

    1. I can think of a great image right now for that post, but it will take me some time longer to think out the meat of the content. Thank you for showing an interest into receiving one from me.

  9. Very nice art. Congrats on the 10k achievement.

  10. I've never paddled anyone before - don't think I could do it although, in certain circumstances it could be fun, I'm sure.

    Very cool to have come so far with your blogging - and your pictures from your... what was it? 30 Square series? were great!

    1. Never paddled anyone before? Love your sense of humor ;)

      Delete
    2. Haha, 20 triangles, not squares....although, that does give me great reason to use 30 squares next time.

      I must have been hit with the paddle too much and got somewhat dependent on it. Woe is my non-existant derrier.

  11. Congrats to you!!!! You are a very talented artist.

  12. I remember just a week and a half ago I was going to post on 10k hits but overnight, my count jumped up to nearly 15k and now its almost 20k!

    All because of boobs! Label some posts with boobs and the traffic gets insane crazy! lol But it's not as gratifying because all those hits are not from real readers!

    So anyways, congrats to you! I'm sure your hits are more authentic so there is much to celebrate!

    Oh, and I hope the guest post is shamefully vulgar! lol

    1. I might be able to pull something like that off, hehe. Shamefully vulgar. I can do, and will.

  13. Congrats on the page views! Very cool, but not nearly as cool as your artwork. I really like the first picture from your triangle series. It captured my attention the most, not sure why...but I kept going back to it. You're very talented. Good luck on your guest posts.

    1. Decided to call that one "Floydish", because it reminded me of the Pink Floyd art I enjoyed so much in my youth. I'm very glad you liked it and appreciate your kind words, Elsie.

  18. 10,000 page views? But I can only see 372? Congratulations nonetheless.

    Also, those artwork looks great. Feels like looking at a big bang or a supernova.

    1. Yeah, that counter has been broken from the first day I realized it wouldn't go over 999. I'd take it out, but I have this irrational fear of screwing the blog up to the point of no return.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, looks broken alright. Now I'm seeing 323 which means it decreased. Have you tried picking a different style if it fixes that? C'mon! face your fears, man!

      Delete
    3. And in the name of challenges, I accept this one and have already defeated said problem. Thanks for getting me to get off my lazy cowardly butt and change this for the better.

      Delete
    4. Nah, I just wanted to see the 10,000 views. Nice to see that you managed to fix it.

  21. To celebrate, you should send me some of your art. I'll admire it every day. Maybe throw in some cookies, too. Just ask for my address and I am sure the post office will have the packaged delivered my the middle of the week.

    1. Funny thing is that when you put this reply, I would have no idea that I may be picked to be part of a gallery(which would allow me to print my work and possibly send some to you). Thanks for wanting my art, NellieVaughn. I would love to send some to you when I'm financially able to.

  24. Congrats on your milestone view count! 10k is a big number; I'm only halfway there and I've been blogging for almost two years. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?

    Your artwork is very cosmic and cool...I like Singularity, and Space Flatulence :)

    1. You're not doing anything wrong, for we all move along at different speeds. I remember a blog that started around the same time mine did. Within 2 months, he had over 1k followers. I regretfully haven't visited his blog since, nor can I remember the name.

  25. Congrats on the views, and I really like the photos. - thanks for the post

  31. I love Space Flatulence (the picture, not the actual thing). Congrats on your 10k views! *I* visit my own page, but I'm a narcissist and that's the easiest way for me to check comments (the new blogger interface doesn't work on my phone).

    Also, regarding your comment, we'd love to have blog friends stop by the cartoon. We'll let you know once we actually have something more solid!

  32. Congratulations! 10k views is amazing! don't be so modest :D
