My BFF Valerie and I are really into finding cool comic chicks. She sent me a link to this girl's blog today. Her name is Kate Beaton, and she's pretty great. Observe:

We also had a conversation like so:
yea, what chicks comin outta the woodwork
we MUST be PARTY to it
omg, she is so funny
i love it
yea, its always Half inspiring, half kick-in-the-ass to come across a chick like this
(Insert convo about our own top secret projects here)
oh man, i cant read any more of this chicks stuff, she is stealing my material... talking to saints
course mine was for a more linear situation in the justin book, which i havent drawin in ... in ....weeks.. months..
i cant tell if her website is inspiring or depressing
oh the HUMANITY
pssht, whatever miss pixar.
I DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR YOU!
im not asking for PITY
man, this is nuts though how much these online comic people put out.
what the crap.
though.. when you do it for a job all day, it makes things different
but the paycheck is a nice trade-off
cause... eating is good too
it's so funny
artists are hilarious
it doesnt matter how successful you are
or how happy
when you see something that is cool
it always makes you go
"oh geez! dang it! how did they do that?! i need to do that!"
haha, yea its true
its this need to constantly be part of the self-expressing i guess
i was explaining that to my friend jacob.
maybe its narcissistic
eh, only a little
i think it is more
"wow, they are saying what i was trying to say!"
but there is a feeling like, if you dont make anything for a while you are slacking off on your destiny
or your mission
(Please also note that we consistently type our laughter like super villains.)
