Today, April 14th, 2018, marks the 10th anniversary of when I first uploaded my Justice League of Anime artwork. It really feels like that was a lifetime ago, but I still remember what it was like spending all that time thinking about it and working on it. This is certainly my most popular artwork with over 4000 +favs, and has got to be the most widely seen and discussed thing that I have ever made.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their support ever since I first uploaded that artwork. It has been exciting to see people's enthusiasm for the work itself and for the concept of a team of classic anime characters coming together. I truly appreciate every +fav and every thoughtful comment, and I'm thankful to anyone who first saw that piece and decided to follow me from then on.
To commemorate the occasion, I wanted to look back at the past 10 years and see what new things have happened with each of the characters and write about it on my website blog. It turns out, there has been a lot! From brand new anime series to classic manga finally being made available in English, each of the 7 characters I chose for the Justice League has had many new developments. I still get occasional comments from people who don't get it and think that some of the characters are too obscure, but I would have to say that not only are they not obscure, they have only become even more popular in the 10 years since I drew them together. If that doesn't prove that I chose correctly, I don't know what does!
So check out the blog on my website to see more! I would love to read your feedback.
Will there be more Anime Justice League in the future? Will there be new members to the team? Maybe someday, but if it can reach 5000 +favs by the end of the year, I'll give some more thought to making new artwork based on the concept. Until then, please keep sharing and commenting on my artwork.
And one more thing: The Justice League TV series is still great. Funny how so often the cartoon is so much better than the movie, huh?
Well done. Happy Anniversary. I always did like that picture. But what keeps me subscribed is knowing you're a cool person who replies to the followers. Very friendly.
