"Girls wants to tell us something important about twentysomething females of the 21st Century. And, as the elders of our society, we should always be listening to those new voices crying out."
DREAM COME TRUE
"The secret of it all, is to write in the gush, the throb, the flood, of the moment – to put things down without deliberation – without worrying about their style – without waiting for a fit time or place. I always worked that way. I took the first scrap of paper, the first doorstep, the first desk, and wrote – wrote, wrote. By writing at the instant the very heartbeat of life is caught."
The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
that I can see farther into paintings.
I feel closer to what language can’t reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
Into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
And in the ponds broken off from the sky
My feeling sinks, as if standing on fishes.
— Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Robert Bly
"I think most comics being made today are generally pretty bad, but the medium is inherently limitless. it’s just words and pictures. You can tell any type of story you want. You can do things they can’t do in movies & cartoons, because they have budget limitations and schedules and deadlines, lawyers and producers and accountants. The real world gets in their way. YOU can literally just sit down with a pencil and make something better than anything you’ve ever seen on a screen. It’s all that stuff they tell you when you’re a kid about how your imagination has unlimited potential. comics are just an extension of your imagination. So start drawing and don’t stop drawing."
Inspiring words that make me wanna get back to doing comics.
It was good catching up with all you guys this weekend.
