Could you folks do me a favor and Like this post?
I’m trying to figure the out a rough formula for total followers versus “active” followers — IE, how many people actually see each post that I make.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Minimal Movie Posters!
It’s officially been two years since I started this blog up on a whim. I never expected it to be quite this successful, I’m so happy people seem to be enjoying the posters!
For the curious, here is MMP’s very first post, back in the early days… Since then we’ve been featured in an online Cinematheque Francaise exhibition, been credited with starting a meme on knowyourmeme.com, had reblogs aplenty, and helped many artists to sell their pieces online.
So, I’d like to commemorate the occasion with another shoutout to all you faithful followers, and all those who have contributed to the blog: thanks so much!
Oh dear well apparently i reached 17,000 followers last night which I find way too good to be true because I reached 13,000 during the golden globes and wow we should have Awards shows more often!
I’d like to start out by thanking The Academy …for being assholes who never give Leonardo DiCaprio a damn trophy. Yeah I’m never gonna let this go. Second of all, thank you to my 17,007 followers. I appreciate you guys and that’s why I’m gonna tell you guys that you need to seek medical attention because clearly something is wrong with you made the decision to follow me. No seriously I’m worried about your mental states.
I’d photoshop “congrats you did a thing” in comic sans onto an Oscar but I’m running late for class so uh let’s see which of you can make one! BEST ONE WINS.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed to my books rec ask. So many fantastic books, I don’t honestly know where to start, but I’m going to read all of them. And I thought this may be helpful to others, so I’ve handily compiled the recs in bullet point form (links go to Amazon).

Have already read, but second the recs:
- The Book Thief - by Markus Zusak (loved this book, wept like a baby in parts, but read it straight through in one sitting).
- Good Omens - by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (cannot recommend this enough, if you haven’t read it, read it now. Go on, I’ll wait).
- About a Boy - by Nick Hornby (anything by Nick Hornby is a good bet, but this and High Fidelity are my favourite of his, and the movies of each were surprisingly good and also worth a watch).
- Bossypants - by Tina Fey (a really amusing rad, though not as biographical as I thought/hoped).
- The Count of Monte Cristo - by Alexandre Dumas (OMG, you get serious bonus points for reccing this, this was my favourite book growing up. LOVE it!)
- Ready Player One - by Ernest Cline (really original and easy to read, filled with trivia and reads like a movie).
- Slaughterhouse Five - by Kurt Vonnegut (read this, you won’t regret it).
- Anything by Tamora Pierce (oh my childhood, thought since I’m still reading these that might not apply anymore).
- The Great Gatsby - by F. Scott Fitzgerald (I feel like I get more from this book with every re-read).
- The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay - by Michael Chabon (I cannot recommend this book enough).
- Graceling - by Kristin Cashore

Each and every one of you have made me improve as a person and an artist as the blog went on and on. Thank you all very much!
And now, may I present my very first post, with only 2 notes.
Wow, this is almost painful to look at. Those black legs, though…Ughh…Gross…
*ahem* And now, the more improved and stylized version after a full year of drawing for this blog!
Yay! We’ve come so far, Caramel and I!
I look forward to several more years of drawing for all of you lovely people and ponies!~
TL;DR: THANKS FOR A WHOLE YEAR OF CARAMEL! LOVE YOU GUYS!
