Practicing drawing people from the front, especially females. I don’t draw enough females. So, I drew myself and my wife!
Inspired by my good friend Al Creed. You should all check out his 8-Bit Art. He’s the absolute best there is.

See, now I want to draw these guys, but I have to pretend like I was gonna do it anyway…
Well, here we are in the final hours of the RiffLife Kickstarter. 36 hours to go to make help make this documentary a reality. Lets recap just exactly what will happen if we get funded.
It is our intention to make a fun and fascinating documentary about the history of the movie riffing phenomenon, from the first days at KTMA all the way up to the present day. We will interview as many creators, writers and performers of MST3K as we can, but we will also talk to fans and other riffing groups to get the entire story of the movie riffing community, which is why the subtitle of our movie is “An Exploration of the Movie Riffing Phenomenon.”
What do you get by helping? There are lots of fun prizes you’ll receive if you contribute, so check out our reward levels. In the higher levels, there is a chance for your face and name to be in the credits of the film itself, you’ll have an opportunity to commission personalized, riffing-inspired art by director Dave Chadwick, an opportunity to be interviewed for the movie, an invitation to the premiere and be credited as a producer.
In addition to all that, if we meet our goal, director Dave Chadwick will donate his hair to Locks of Love and get the cast of MST3K tattooed somewhere on his body. RiffLife is also sponsoring a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to declare August 8th "National Movie Riffing Day."
Even though we don’t have much more time to make this happen, we believe we still have a chance. This isn’t over until it is over! Let’s finish strong! Huzzah!

"Declare August 8th "National Movie Riffing Day" in the United States of America, along with the creation of the "National Riffing Award," awarded annually to individuals who have achieved excellence, success or have otherwise honored the medium through their actions. The Movie Riffing medium came into existence in the late 1980s, and since that time it has enriched our popular culture and the movie watching experience immensely. It inspires people to be better than they are and elevates films which would have otherwise been forgotten into our cultural consciousness."
This petition replaces our original petition to declare August 8th “Mystery Science Theater 3000 Day” that as removed because "the petition advertises or calls for the endorsement or purchase of commercial goods or services," which it in no way did. Even though there are petitions up to honor the Beatles and the Grateful Dead, we decided not to push the matter under the banner of “MST3K Day.” We have instead created this new petition with no references to MST3K, any particular riffing organization, individuals or even RiffLife itself. Without those elements, it cannot be said that we are calling for the purchase or endorsing of anything. We are simply petitioning to honor the movie riffing medium and those who achieve excellence in it.
The RiffLife team has petitioned the White House to declare August 8th “Mystery Science Theater 3000 Day” in the United States of America and publicly honor the following individuals for their contributions to American popular culture and their enrichment of the movie watching experience.

RiffLife Director Dave Chadwick Will Donate His Hair To Locks Of Love And Tattoo The Cast Of MST3K On His Body To Fund The Project!
Yesterday, Satellite News gave us an awesome plug. We are very slowly making our presence know throughout the MST3K fan community as well as the amateur riffing community. However, Friday will be the halfway point of our Kickstarter campaign, and we are still only at 3% of our $50,000 goal. If you have already donated, know that we are very grateful for your contribution and would ask if you could tell a friend or two about the project. If you haven’t donated, we understand. Times are tough right now, but we can’t make the movie for free. Even donations of $2, $5 and $10 are very helpful. Don’t think that just because you can’t give a lot doesn’t mean your contribution won’t mean anything, because those small contributions add up quickly. To date we haven’t received a single $2 or $5 contribution, and we want to change that. We have amended those reward levels to also receive exclusive video updates of the movie making process. Every donor will be put on a specialized list that will receive weekly behind the scenes footage of the movie as it is being made. We will also thank each and every donor personally, by name, in a special Thank You video at the end of the project, because we literally cannot do this without you.
