"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
It's no way to grow if you keep bringing the past up. To change, you need to embrace the past and learn that you are what you need and the current you can change yourself for the better given you are willing.
You cant keep blaming the past for why you cant grow, thats like saying when you were a baby, you never could walk so now you will never walk because of that past? No. You fucking learn from that and now you can walk so how much different is thAt?”
Toby Morris describes himself as “an Auckland-based illustrator, art director, comic artist and recently the author of Don’t Puke On Your Dad: A Year in the Life of a New Father.”
His recent comic, The Pencilsword’s “On a Plate” illustrates the concept of privilege, and delivers the truth with a punchline that literally hits you in the gut.
He places two individuals side by side, showing how financial security and benefits, or the lack of it, affects them even if they come from households that love and support them, leading to two completely different outcomes.
it was about damn time.
Know what my favorite part of this is? That one only has ties on a small part of their body whereas the other is tied all along one side up to the face, meaning one person is not quite as invested in the relationship as the other. Even better thought, the one with most ties is the one with the scissors. Im so glad they’ve built up the courage to leave even if it means cutting out a larger part out of their life than the other.
The Most Emotional Comic of 2014 Gets Animatedowlturd:
Check out this totally amazing video, directed by Filipe Costa and featuring pixel art by Matheus Muniz, as well as music & SFX by Julian Alvarez Chaia. Honestly, this even caught me off-guard and I knew what was going to happen. Huge props to all of them.
“ It said “you can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at it”— sonified
I accepted. Until something in me revolted, “there is no such thing as a mere stand and stare if one is conscious, focused and observing, is there? How much effort on a cellular level takes it to stand and stare and how much of history trial and error mechanised this vessel for you, if u care? And to jump in and fight the tide is called in when consequences dictate but how far do you risk your life when u could maybe stand and stare and breathe a parting into life or a boat, say that wasn't there?”
Not making much sense, am i?
Idle hands, was the point? ”
Little Tree: An Uncommonly Beautiful and Subtle Japanese Pop-Up Book about the Cycle of Life
Pop-up books have a singular magic, but even the pioneering vintage “interactive” picture-books of Italian graphic designer Bruno Munari can’t compare to the beauty, subtlety, and exquisite elegance of those by Japanese graphic designer and book artist Katsumi Komagata.When his daughter was born in 1990, Komagata expanded his graphic design studio, One Stroke, into publishing and began making extraordinary picture-books — including some particularly thoughtful and beguiling masterpieces for children with disabilities, from tactile pop-up gems to sign-language stories.
I realised that most of the stories I’ve written have always dealt with the concept of being alone; never as a bad thing, though the worst it can be is melancholic, but as a trait that somehow belongs to the main characters which they have accepted as part of their being. I could then easily how it echoed the experience of most of my entire life, being a very lonely child who kept to herself. I’m still the same person essentially, I still have mental conversations with myself (I think I’m a very funny conversationalist; too bad my social anxiety prevents most people other than my friends from enjoying it), but I’ve accepted this constant trait of being alone and managed to turn it into something that opens doors for me to experience the world in ways I wouldn’t have noticed (try being in a field looking at the clouds passing by! That’s my positive association with being alone).
Being in an age where everyone is connected everywhere and talking to everyone every time (Facebook, anyone?), it can make us more afraid of being alone than we already naturally are. We all have a need to belong to each other. At the same time though we need to learn how to belong to ourselves, and personally I find that it’s a very important especially with so many things going on we could very easily lose ourselves. Having a rich inner life is just as important as having a rich outer life, and they both inform each other.
*I may have jumbled up loneliness and being alone as being the same thing. Yeah I know!! It’s just how I experienced it; sometimes I really hate how I’m unable to easily make friends, which often makes me feel negatively isolated especially in a new environment (I was ALONE in college for a year until I found my clique). It’s terrible. But still things worked out in the end. Until it does though, make a friend out of yourself in the meantime.
If Only Once, If Only For A Little While, a new 18-page comic about the ways we deal with loss.Their names are Charlie and Olive, kinda reminds me of Charlotte "Chuck" Charles & Olive Snook from Pushing Daisies & they're buddies too, even more coincidences are the fact that Charlie's a long-haired brunette & Olive is a short-haired blonde (if not probably some other light-colored hair) and Charlie's the dead one, just like Chuck.
for easier readability, the whole thing is also up here, on my website!
