Hi! I wanted to thank you for admiring me, and I am happy that my comics come across as “real,” but I wanted to politely discuss the “typical misunderstood-artistic-girl with so many stupid problems.”
I think it’s really easy for us to look at someone else and say “I would never worry about something so small” or “what he/she is complaining about is so stupid,” but we have no way to understand what that person’s life is like. A problem that might seem so small to us might consume someone else’s life, if they suffer from anxiety or something similar.
I think one of the best things about art and especially comics is that it gives people an outlet to express their emotions and tell their stories. Maybe sometimes it comes across a little shallow, or you can’t relate, or you don’t like it, but you don’t have to! There might be someone out there who sees the comic and finally feels not alone, even if it is a “little” problem. Or maybe making it helped the artist feel better. Sometimes knowing other people have the same stupid little problems as us is extremely comforting.
Everyone is real, and I think that girls (or anyone, but you specifically mentioned girls) venting their emotions in an artistic way shouldn’t feel ashamed. I hope you agree! Thank you again for approaching me!
