I wrote my first ever article over half a year ago and it was published this morning. Weirdly enough they’ve each been published in the reverse order in which they were written, so in my view the writing appears to be getting worse as opposed to improving.
This one is called 'Is Being A Jerk A Mental Illness'. I’m not terribly proud of it, save for a few lines. I just read it assuming it would be completely irrelevant now but surprisingly (unfortunately) its not. Only thing is that I’m referring to 2012 and not 2013 - which is depressing in a whole other way.
(the second illustration on the page wasn’t done by me.)
mikael - this is a phase i see in others in my life. i am glad that you write about it, even though it is hard. i think you did it in a way that feels authentic and personal and also useful to read.
more generally, your illustrations are great and i am excited to see some in voiceworks in the next issue : )))
