2000! [Nov. 8th, 2007|02:29 am]
This is my 2000th livejournal entry. I've been keeping this thing since I was 16! Throw me a livejournal party.

This week has been incredible. Too great to really process yet, tipsy off of Lynda Barry's good whiskey, and exhausted from staying up and drawing a comic when I should be asleep. But I needed to tell someone about the last couple days, so here you go, guys:

(I am so fucking lucky)

Ah, if only I had received this advice when *I* was 18...might have spared me what seems like a small eternity of regret and frustration.

YEH!!!! That’s it!!!! Probably this very short and simple tip could have changed lots of men lives!!!! I’m not an exception, because I was a teen I was too shy and diffident and it took me so much time to get rid of it!!! With beer all could be less troublesome!!!!

With best regards, Mia interested in commercial mortgage loan online

That is adorable.

My Design 1 teacher was all about play too, except she was slightly less encouraging and you only came to love her once you left her class.

Man, I love that woman SO MUCH. I have never met her, but my dad has. I think I started reading her comics when I was about 11, and I still believe that they got me through middle school in one piece!

And there you go! You're in a place where you can meet and eat bagels with your idols, and they will come to YOU. Awesome, awesome.

Lucky lucky. I need something like that too, i'm going to keep it in mind. I'm not in school for comics but my classes on being a professional editorial advertising illustrator (which i don't even want to do anyway!) are grinding me down. i am fed up with being an adult!

it's so true about being slightly tipsy re: artmaking, and SO TRUE about growling at our own legs. what a wisdom machine!

i'm so happy she renewed your spirit. :)

thank you so much for sharing this!

this reminds me of something my teacher Kinji Akagawa says:
"to think of someone is to thank them for existing. thinking is thanking!"

thank you, Lynda!!!

(my friend Abby recently did a comic thanking Barry too -- about being sad and reading her "Two Questions" strip)

so you didn't learn "how" to write comics from lynda, you re-learned "why" you write comics ... makes sense!

beautiful comic, as always too!
