In very specific circles, I am. For a couple of different reasons. A few years ago I drew comics as a side job. I did very short stories (4-6 pages) for independent publishers that pretty much only sold the books in California. It got me some fanmail, though.
At around the same time, I maintained an extensive website dedicated to Army of Darkness. I had a couple of interviews published in a couple of magazines, as well as correspondence with Bruce Campbell himself when asked to make my site the “Official” one. A couple years ago I was standing in line at one of Bruce’s book signings and heard guys behind me talking about my old website, which hadn’t been updated in several years by that point.
Just 2 or 3 years ago, I put a computer inside a Nintendo and published a tutorial online about how to do it yourself. It scored me several interviews in magazines and on the radio, and even got me on live, national TV. I was spotted exactly 1 time as “that guy who was on that one show that one time!”.
