One Million!



I know it's peanuts compared to some blogs out there, but Muddy Colors just received it's 1,000,000th hit! Not too shabby for a blog that didn't even exist 12 months ago.

Thanks to all of you who check us daily, and a special thanks to those of you who regularly leave us comments. It means a lot to us. Maintaining a daily blog is a lot of work, and sometimes we have no idea if people are even watching. Your encouraging words and intelligent input are what keep us going.

So who said illustration is dead ?!

  1. guess that means somebodies watching...or Jesper is just clicking his mouse a lot.
