【✖|About】
This comic reads left to right; up to down.
This comic is about a young girl who lives in a world were everyone becomes an artist. The story explores what happens when she breaks the societal norms. The young girl does not have a name or an age, encouraging the reader to identify with the young girl.
Character (C) *Sheepily
【✖|Why?】
I originally started this project last year back when a group of people said some very hurtful things about my art. They asked me to remove my images from their site for an illogical reason. I did so, however it hurt my feelings as an artist.
I started the comic under a pseudo-name and pseudo-artistic style. I was scared to post it under my name because of the things that has been said to me. I created a story around how I felt about art restrictions put on me.
A few months later, the present, I signed up for a graphic novel class. I dug up this old idea and work on it.
【✖|Message】
I want each person to take away whatever message they want from this comic. I do want each person to take away the feeling of freedom in art, and it isn't just art, in everything. Each person should feel they can do whatever they want to in whatever they want, without social norms.
Please share with me what you got out of this comic. I would LOVE to hear.
【✖|Tools】
I sketched it and inked it with my light table. I used a micron pen to do all of my inking work. After I inked it I used ink washes for anything in black and white. Anything in color was done with water colors you can buy at the supermarket. Afterwards I scanned it in and cleaned it up in photoshop. The comic part was done in flash.

I don't think I've ever seen something that touched my artistic side so well. It shows the sacrifices you have to make to be an individual in the world of art instead of some insipid drone. I absolutely love the simple beauty of this.

I had shivers while reading it xD
The message I got was probably "You'll be punished if you bypass the rules set by society , but don't be frightened if it makes YOU happy... After all, there can't be rules for art, Art is free."
