But I was creepin' around my usual pages tonight. And it was a very sad, slow, disappointing night. There was hardly any new fanart. No cartoons. No updated webcomics.
And I said to myself, "AAAAAAGH. YOU HAVE DISAPPOINTED ME. ALL OF YOU.
"THAT DOES IT. I'M GOING TO DRAW MY OWN COMIC-CARTOON-THINGY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT. IT PROBABLY WON'T LOOK THAT GOOD. BUT IT'LL BE FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING AND IT'LL BE ON THE INTERNET FOR BORED PEOPLE TO ENJOY.
"HERE I GO. I AM GOING TO GET OUT PAPER AND DRAW SOMETHING. RIGHT NOW. LET'S DO IT."
And then I remembered that I'm behind on my reading for class tomorrow. And I really should be doing that instead.
So now I am sad. And I am going to go read Kim by Rudyard Kipling.
It's for my class about espionage. But in between the little bits about espionage are long, sensory detail-filled descriptions of the people, customs, landscapes, and life in general of India. And I'm really having a hard time getting through it.
Especially since Kim is just so perfect. For crying out loud, he's a kid. In class we estimated he's between 10 and 13 years old. But he just runs around on the streets and he's that stereotypical street urchin who's got all the street smarts and he acts really annoying but everyone just looooves him anyway and he's made, like, only one mistake so far and yeah, I guess living on the streets would give you a fair bit of knowledge of the world around you but COME. ON. HE CAN'T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERY CASTE AND EVERY PERSON AND I JUST WANT HIM TO FIND THE HOLY RIVER OR YOU KNOW WHATEVER DO SOMETHING BESIDES TRAVEL AND MEET PEOPLE AND TALK TO PEOPLE AND LOOK AT PEOPLE AND GET MONEY FROM PEOPLE AND AAAAAAAGGHHGHHHHGAAHAGHHGGH
I WANT TO DRAW CARTOONS
