The proximity of milkshakes and male symbols ought to give you a clue as to one of the songs... ^_~

I've been dying to do an art nouveau style title card forever! [funfact, last year's Bieber x-mas card was supposed to be art nouveau style... totally failed and bailed] So while I usually try to match the art style of the card to the episode, this one was just for fun :)

Hidden word: Milkshake!

Art (c) Krin

ps- gnnnn I've wanted a dang milkshake ever since I started this card D:

pps- "nouveau" is hard to spell D:

This may well be one of the best title cards you've ever put together in terms of design and composition. The font, the symbols, the shapes and the way it all fits together...It recalls the sort of elaborate, colorful pieces that made you Internet famous(ish) the first place. (I don't think your title cars are bad (not at all). I'm just one of those people who misses the older pieces)

And, this may sound weird, but I like the way you drew the milkshakes. They look... almost appetizing.

Thanks! I've seen this exact sentiment before in various places- "I wish you would draw more like the first art you did." Believe me, I wish I could, too! That early stuff I did was the first art I'd made in 5 years at the time. I was suddenly hit with the idea for the Like a G6 comic, and I had this feeling if I didn't try to make it, I would be missing out on something huge.

Well, that was true XD

But after that, I was left with the knowledge and fear that I am NOT a trained artist, or even a very good one. What had inspired me to do that early art was no longer available. I was really worried that my lack of art skills would lead to terrible cards and reflect poorly on Todd.

So what you've seen for the past 2 years is someone who does art basically once every two weeks, struggling to get something good out. I do art between/after work. I don't practice. I appreciate the feedback you and other 'real' artists give me. Sometimes cards come out great, sometimes not. But each one will hopefully push me closer to 'a better artist.'

I love this card. I wouldn't have thought of nouveau style with the Kelis song. LOL!

Oooooh I think this looks fantastic. Defo one of your best cards so far me thinks! I especially like how you managed to make the moronic phrase 'milkshake brings all the boys to the yard' and make it look classy and artistic.

And oh god that STUPID 'I don't want you back' song is even worse than I remembered. Mostly cause I only ever heard it censored before. So apparently he didn't say *beep* you, you *woman moaning* after all.

I'm not a boy, but Todd's reviews bring something to...milkshakes...I forgot where I was going with this.

Ah, 2004. I was 10 and just getting into the pop charts. I blame Someday by Nickelback for that. That was back when I liked 10 and 9. The rest were just crap though.

Now where's my motherfucking milkshake?
