This past weekend I was at VidCon and decided to
bring some artwork to
give away to some of my favorite YouTubers! These will all be apart of a
special YouTube caricature book that I will be making containing TONS
As a character artist, I find YouTubers to be incredibly inspiring. The life and personality they bring to the camera not only brings me joy and entertainment, but has become a great drawing exercise!
I am thrilled that they all really enjoyed their little art gifts! I can’t wait to start creating more caricatures for I have a lot of love to give to this community!
Still laughing at the fact that Alli flawlessly gave the entire timeline for her and Chase’s relationship in four minutes without any unexplained holes or anyone having to back up her story, while Chase was laying right there not saying a damn thing, yet Charles and Allie have made two long ass video’s with people “backing up” (more like feeding them) their stories and given countless “explanations” yet still no one knows when or how they met and what brought them together to make them want to date. Once again Alli handling things flawlessly like a grown ass adult while Charles makes shit complicated as hell and then acts like a dick when people call him on his shit.
The craziest thing about YouTube is That we make these life long friends who affect our lives so much, yet most of us never even meet them. To most of these people we aren’t just viewers or fans we are their family.
Who knew people we have never physically met could help us get through even the hardest times.
Even though we see these people for sometimes less than 15 minutes a day, yet we still feel so involved.
I think the thing that makes YouTube so much more popular than TV nowadays is that the people on YouTube are real people sharing their ACTUAL lives with the Internet.
We become so consumed with these people that even we are effected by things happening in their lives, such as Charles Trippys and Alli Speeds divorce.
Even, some tragic things such as deaths.
The Bratayley family recently lost their son Caleb due to natural causes, the family had been documenting their lives since 2010 and most of the viewers have been affected by this loss, yet never even meeting him. I know I can say that I was affected by it, I didn’t watch them everyday but I watched them enough to know that I will miss his funny personality that made their vlogs what they were.
It also made me put life into a hole new perspective, mostly because Caleb was only 2 years younger than me. But it made me realise that life is precious and should never be taken for granted.
Rest In Piece Caleb and prayers to the rest of your family.
