Angst - crack by lizleeillustration Angst - crack by lizleeillustration
Alternate title: "Don't smile this at home"

... you know, there's a very good reason why my comic is called "Angst". There's a lot more emo where that giant metaphor for my life came from.

Anyway. Been having a rough time lately, but when life gives you lemons which plague your brain with swirling vortices of blackness....

Sometimes you just gotta laugh. I hope some of you guys do.

^_^

On a more technical note, I'm not sure it's very visually-coherent.. so I hope people get it. I played around with my usual paneling, which was fun.

PS: COMMENTS GOOD, YOU LURKERS

cheers.

Hmm. This is the first of your Angst comics that I'm not sure what to make of. It's humorously done but I'd hate to say I don't get it.

Yeah, it was a quickie. It's kind of about self-esteem, cracking the mirror, smiling in the morning... a bunch of things. It was mostly for myself, heh.

everybody always asks if i'm angry.. i say "no.. it's just how my face is"

Sorry! I've been a major lurker on DA for a while now!

I'm sad to hear you're not having a good time lately, but art is theraputic and its good that you trying to turn unhappiness in to laughs.

On the technical note I think its successful in what its trying to accomplish. I was kind of wondering who (or what, in this case) she was trying to smile at until the last panel, but that gives that "zing" to your punch line, so its a good thing.

Cheers!

When life hands ya lemons...make apple juice!

My fave line from 'Sky High' and it's something I live by everyday, even when I'm feeling angsty (and trust me, Monday mornings I look so emo I'd probably crack a mirror too if I smiled).
Two thumbs up for EPIC-ly winning facial expressions!
