Sully here of SullySplatter.com! I think it’s common practice to start a blog (belligerent letters of gibberish) with a sort of mission statement. As a professional Illustrator, I think I’m supposed to use this blog as a place to eloquently write notes and editorials about the state of my field and my opinions about the changing tides. That’s all well and good, and some of that is probably going to happen. But for those of you who already know me, you know it’s just not going to stay to that. Random stories, rants, and a gratuitous number of Simpsons quotes are probably going to wind up littering this journal. However, I’ll also be posting sketches and doodles as often as I have time to scan them so you guys should look forward to (or dread, use your discretion) that as well. In fact, I’d love to start this blog off on the right foot and present one of my favorite placemat doodles I’ve ever done. This was created while waiting for Mexican food when I was with a party of about 12 people. The food was taking forever, and I was just reaching that stage of hunger when you start to feel slightly nauseous. Then they brought me the wrong thing and I had to wait longer, which was good news because it let me finish this sketch!
