|Emily AC: Multi-Talented Comedian||
See--I wrote my comics in 2011. I've started to make some new ones--but now I don't have a working scanner. So I'll have to take pics of my comics and upload that way. My comic is based upon actual events--yeah, practically every episode. There are only a few that I completely made up. Some are exaggerations--but a lot of what the characters say is pretty darn close to what they said during the interaction discussed in the episode. That's why those particular events were chosen.
Now, then... I don't want you to get the wrong idea about my family. That's why I did my best to give them accurate names and to quote them as closely as possible. See; for some--love is a battlefield. I come from a family that thinks this notion is true. I say--if you think love is a battlefield, you're doing it wrong.
In my opinion, love is supposed to be rainbows and butterflies and shit like that. All the time. When you love someone, you're supposed to ENJOY being around them--it should be a fun thing to do. I also feel as though love between two people means an open line of communication where both people understand each other's thought processes and don't look down upon one another.
This is precisely why I started making my comics slamming my family--and also MYSELF!!! My family never noticed in the comic that I gave myself a hard time practically in every episode. The superhero is kind of lame. Nobody actually gives a crap about a broke mom that struggles to have a happy family scraping at the bottom of the barrel; slurping up the sludge.
There are new ones--two are in blue. This is because I lost my sharpie and couldn't buy a new one. Then I found my MANY black sharpies, so I'll go back to black. This is a VERY cheaply done comic. Obviously--there's no rough draft. I trace my idea on the paper with my finger and brainstorm in my head. It takes about a minute to come up with the idea. Then I draw it.
I keep the mistakes because I want it known that I don't give a crap about perfection. I think perfectionism is a huge hindrance upon the human race. I don't get paid to make the comic. There was ONE person that donated $10 ONCE. So... Um... why try hard for a non-money-making endeavor??? Exactly. My laziness wouldn't allow it.
Now, then, let's say some alternative magazine for smart-asses came to me and offered to pay me for my comic... Then, they'd get a better copy... Though, I'm still not sure that I'd use a ruler. I used to get so much crap from math teachers about those fucking rulers. I didn't care then--and I DON'T care, now! Take my uneven lines and deal with it... Can't do it? Can't deal with it? You're probably republican and that's a bad trait that only YOU can fix.
Before you go calling me a democrat--please understand that they are the other side to the same faulty coin and I despise them just as much :) Don't like my attitude? That's fine. I probably don't like yours, either. But--because I'm a master of understanding other perspectives, I can forgive you your trespasses, even if you don't forgive me of mine! I won't tell you that to your face; because it is pointless. I'll just think my forgiveness to myself whilst continuing to ignore your existence.
That's the Emily way :)
I love you even if you hate me,
