sappy short stories: Fremont Diary and Fremont Girl

In addition to my regular comic, I've also been working on a couple side projects with a sappier tone. these are both self-contained stories of 12 and 18 pages. I'm aiming for a lot of sappiness but with some humor and social commentary, how well does it go? http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~atwu/firstcu...

hmm it seems like there's a lot of art imitating life and people like it, but get creeped out when life imitates art.

anyone ever draw a comic, and say, hmm, that'd be nice if my life was like that, and try to figure out how to get there?

the only reason the word "otaku" is cool in the USA is because it's only known and used by those who have some involvement in the anime scene... if the average American knew otaku's American definition of someone who's an anime fan, they'd consider them to be losers too. it's just like how they make...

I'm Asian, as are a number of artists... not everyone is attracted to manga/anime because of the "holy shit, this anime stuff is so much better than Scooby Doo! I didn't know this stuff existed!" situation... for many, that was our first introduction to comics and animation, and the natural point to...
