This is awesome.

Like one of my professors* at university said, it's easy to create something that looks cool if all your tools are really bitchin' and stuff, but when you can create awesomosity from crappy craptastic MSPaint, you have some rare talent.

Okay, he didn't say it exactly like that, but it was the 1980s. The "bitchin'" is implied.

Edited to add:  The forced perspective really sells it.

*at CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY, ENGLAND nyah, nyah, nyah**

**Okay, it was the art school, which wasn't as academically challenging as, say, King's or Trinity.  But it was in the same town.

I agree. I bought her book, and can't wait to read it.

And elsewhere on Live Journal I was informed that you can buy adult size dinosaur onesies!

I absolutely love her stuff. In her most recent piece on depression (http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2013-10-02T14:53:00-06:00&max-results=10), she put into words things I'd been feeling for years but couldn't quite describe.

And now? I'm going to go line a wool kirtle with (fairly decent) cotton broadcloth, because that's what I've got, and I need to make that work.

I think that should go into every psychiatric textbook, I swear to golf. I spent almost 7 years in a grey haze. No-one who has not been deeply depressed can quite empathize, because it's well-nigh impossible to describe. "Being suffocated in a wet wool blanket" is the best explanation I can come up with. Hers is better.

I've only been able to put words to it recently; "Depression doesn't make me sad. It makes me hate myself."
