Welcome to our 100th Vol of ProjectPorkchop! I'd like to take a moment and take a stroll down memory lane before we get to our regular features. For those of you who have been with us since before day one, you probably remember when our articles were still called Fresh Meat and groups were still a far fetched dream on dA, the idea of ProjectPorkchop
didn't come to be for quite some time after all of that.. If memory serves me correct Fresh Meat ran for 82 weeks missing only one week in that entire span. In the first week I featured 10 artists and each article after that featured 5.
The idea for ProjectPorkchop
actually came about when I had went to HQ and met with spyed
he thought it would be a good idea to turn my weekly Fresh Meat articles into a group somehow and I agreed it was a great idea. When groups came out I wanted a fresh name for my articles but still sticking with the previous theme ProjectPorkchop
The name actually came about from an old dream I had some years ago which is oddly irrelevant to features and the like, but the name was interesting and it went with the previous theme so I went with it. Again, I stayed with the usual 5 features per week not missing a week until some things came up and I was unfortunately no longer able to post the articles any longer.
When I returned Last January I started the group and the articles back up as usual however, I restarted the counter so while this may be Vol100, we have actually had closer to 200.
Overall, since I started these articles back in 08, I have featured 965 different artists, each with under 200 watchers at the time of the feature.
Over the past year I started keeping track of the artists I have featured getting Daily Deviations after they have been featured in my group and or one of my articles.
In this past year alone there have been over 100 artists who have recieved DD's, and those are just the ones which I noticed (or suggested myself) Check them out here
These articles have been a huge project for me for a long time and I hope to continue working on them. So happy 100th, may we have many more!
