So, what started out as the idea for one drawing to get myself to work in my sketchbook and stay positive over the summer turned into a series of four Sanders Sides themed motivational posters because that’s who I am as a person…

Motivational Roman, India ink and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “You Will make your Dreams a Reality” in cursive lettering framed by a satin ribbon reminiscent of Roman’s princely sash. He’s a dreamer, but he’s also a go-getter so he seemed like the appropriate choice to start off the series.

Motivational Logan, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “EVEN A SMALL IMPROVEMENT IS STILL PROGRESS” in a no-nonsense, architectural drafting style font framed by a silky blue tie. Logan is the man with a plan and would understand that every little step toward a goal should be recognized.

Motivational Patton, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “dO whAt mAkEs yOUr InnEr chIld HaPPy” in a simple font that bounces between upper and lowercase letters (this is how I wrote as a kid) framed by Patton’s gray cardigan like a warm hug. He’s a lovable, wrinkly sorta guy who just wants what’s best for you.

Motivational Virgil, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “You have Fought your DEMONS, you can handle ANYTHING” in a wispy, sharp, Gothic style font (that was probably the most fun to make out of them all) framed by Virgil’s hoodie. He’s a bit of a self-deprecating edge-lord, so I don’t doubt that he’d say something like this in an attempt to be motivational, however, this is more based on how I personally view my anxiety.

I had a lot of fun with this, I hope you all enjoy and are motivated as well! Thanks to @thatsthat24​ for being my muse and @welcome-to-the-joangle​ for helping to create such wonderful characters!

There’s no living with… with a killing. There’s no going back from one. Right or wrong, it’s a brand. A brand sticks. There’s no going back. Now you run on home to your mother, and tell her… tell her everything’s all right. And there aren’t any more guns in the valley.

Now, I don’t know what Charles put in your head, but I am not whatever it is you think I am, okay? I only met you, like, a week ago. You got your Rebecca, your Delilah, your blah, blah, blah, whatever. Everything you asked for, you’ve got it! And it is better this way. Because I suck at this. Bad shit happens to people I care about, you understand me?
