Hey so through 2018 I'm gonna do a drawing challenge where every day I add another character to a giant fight scene until it gets so giant I probably won't even be able to upload it to Twitter anymore. Here goes:
4. don't worry I'm sure they can reattach all those limbs with science
6. delicious 🍽️
7. uh-oh
8. 🏏
10. 🤙🤙🤙
12. it's one of those pipes. y'know.
14. these people are just fighting in mid-air don't worry about it
16. + free bonus update: I gave that one guy a hat
18. most violent injury/death so far goes to this guy
21. 💀
23. In case anyone's wondering why I'm adding more than one character a day right now: ghosts don't count because they're dead and not real people. Also they're no-good and don't deserve their own day. Sorry ghost fans.
24. GUYS I told you ghosts were no good!
31. Oh lord January is only just over and I already feel like I've been doing this for six years. Thanks for all the support everybody. Stay tuned to watch me go totally insane.
32. happy february everybody
36. this picture is now officially Too Large For Twitter™
37. making this image wider to fool Twitter's dumb auto-cropping system
38. 💎
40. 🇺🇸
41. I think pipes are gonna be a recurring theme
44. ✂️
48. observer + cat 👀
50. half way to a hundred my bros
51. 🐙
52. wings
53. crabman
54. ok guys it's getting seriously hard to not repeat ideas and poses now!!
55. 🎳
58. 🤡🤜
59. snake head
60. two months down my dudes

(why is there no skateboard emoji???)
61. RIP Hal
62. hey this one's a little bit late sorry guys it won't happen again!!
63. what the fuck Richard??
64. Hey this is getting so big now you can barely see the characters. Anyone got any ideas for what I should do to make this more practical to look at? Like should I host the full-sized image somewhere and then just post close-ups of the updated sections on Twitter?
65. Thanks everyone for your feedback on how to post updates. Pretty much everyone said just keep doing it the way I have but let's see what you all think now that the whole thing is about to get EXPONENTIALLY LARGER:
66. I promised dinosaurs and I intend to deliver dinosaurs
67. 🔫🦖
69. (nice)
70. 🤵‍♀️🐵🐵
71. pithecophobia
72. what's up guys I'm back to having to find excuses for every character to be floating in mid-air
73. 🌟
75. not sure why it took me this long to include a dog
76. 🧙‍♂️💼
77. a lot of people with wands coming up
78. 🐬

P.S. Can anyone recommend somewhere I can host this giant image in hi-res? Tumblr, cargo etc. all compress it to the point where it's not much better than just looking at it on Twitter.
here's a nice hi-res version so you can get a good look at all the characters/all the shoddy line work that looks acceptable at 25% full-size
you can also get a good look at my fav character so far: this guy's leg that got turned into a dolphin
79. big hand
80. best use of a wand so far imho
81. bird chaos
82. Jet Cop 👮‍♂️
84. confiscated
85. portals
86. 🏃‍♂️⬅️🐦

Thanks to everyone who's supported me and this big dumb project all year. I really didn't expect it to get as much attention as it has so that really helped me to get through it! You can see a big hi-res version here:
(thanks again to @headonkeyboard)
We're looking into getting prints etc. ready for sale so will be posting updates about that in January!
