Even though you're waaay too hard on yourself, I like your angsty "emo" comics. They're very real and honest and relatable.
ahaha :) thanks Matt! lol, you know, I always feel better after you've left a comment! I'm trying to push away from 'no-one understands' to at least a valued reason for me feeling 'angsty' - and you've said some absolutely lovely things there, which are exactly what I'm aiming for with my work - thank you! The angsty stuff I'm having to draw (that's by someone else) is really two-dimentional, and it's getting really annoying...
But but but...I liiiiiiiiiiike the angsty stuff! LOL Matt definitely is right when he says your "angsty" stuff feels more like just open honesty than whiney emo.
oh good! :) even better! :D I think me calling my sad work emo and 'angsty' is the fact that I'm trying to take something serious to me and detract from it, I struggle drawing and posting some of my personal stuff, so I think if I can make fun of it, then I'm less likely to feel hurt if that's one of the criticisms... (if that makes sense?) lol. I'm so psycho-analyzing myself!
I totally understand where you're coming from. I read comics like John Kinhart's 'Sorry Comics' that is just so brutally honest and heart-wrenching and sometimes makes me cry...I wish I could be that open in my own comics. Whenever I try, I feel so vulnerable that I often don't even ink it after drawing it out. Or other times, I'll hide the serious subject matter in an extremely cartoonish style and throw in a ton of "lol"s to lighten the mood.
Well I'm going to push away from the above comments a little and say that I really wished I had a "V.S." shirt. Simply awesome.
