Accidentally Making Something Awesome

Every once in a while, I accidentally make something other people want. And when I say accidentally, I mean accidentally.

The other day, while working on my cosplay for Youmacon, I suddenly had this great idea. An idea for a picture I'd like on my wall!

I wanted to make a "vintage war-time poster" for Sailor Moon. The idea I had was in kind of a "let's unite to fight evil!" propaganda poster, but I wanted to have the lyrics for the theme song as the background. because I thought it'd be a nice homage. And if I did it correctly, it'd look splendid!

Then my need for this poster became so great, I sat down for a full day and belted this thing out. Then, because I like to share my artwork online, I posted it.

And suddenly the internet exploded.

Apparently a lot of OTHER people also liked the design. Who was I to know? So I'm going to work on getting a good chunk of prints available for the show. Curious how it turned out? Here you go:

So the moral of the story is, it doesn't necessarily hurt to put something online you like that you made. You never know when other people will like it too, and possibly you'll have a new product on your hands...
