    If you suffer from imposter syndrome, this book will resonate with you but not provide any solution or uplifting resolution The takeaway, I ve found, is alcoholism is not a viable solution duh , depression and anxiety can sometimes behave as vices of self absorption, celebrating your success and that of others is a much happier and positive way to conduct your life, justifying your own self hatred and shoving it down others throats so that they understand you is divisive and self indulgent, If you suffer from imposter syndrome, this book will resonate with you but not provide any solution or uplifting resolution The takeaway, I ve found, is alcoholism is not a viable solution duh , depression ...

    Kelsey s style seems so quick loose FUN to READ, it belies all the hard work that surely went into making such a dense deeply considered comic This is an extremely well written, almost novelistic comic that still excels at what comics can do and novels can t wordlessly track afternoon light through the windowpane, seamlessly go in and out of fantasy fiction And still it is almost photorealistic when a character opines on Sheryl Crow her attention to detail shines in Kelsey s style seems so quick loose FUN to READ, it belies all the hard work that surely went into making such a dense deeply considered comic This is an extremely well written, almost novelistic comic that still excels at what comics can do and novels can t wordlessly track afternoon light through the windowpane, seamlessly go in and out of fantasy fiction And still it is almost photorealistic when a character opi...

    I initially gave this four stars, but I can t get it out of my head so I m bumping it up.I thought this book was going to be about Being An Artist Like, what your life looks like after college when you re adrift, trying to create something other people want to pay you for You know the misery and the ecstasy etc And it is about that It s just also about what happens when you create art other people want to buy, and you ve proven everyone who ever told you to grow up and get a job wrong Th I initially gave this four stars, but I can t get it...

    I feel kind of heavy after reading this It was good, though, I loved the art, and the dialogue I found myself hating loving the main character The ending makes it feel like there might be a sequel I hope so.
