A lot has been happening in my life lately, all good things fortunately, but my time is being directed into other areas as of two weeks ago. Thus my hobbies, much like school art programs, are the first thing slashed from the agenda. Don’t count me out though. I have been jotting down plenty of new ideas. All I’m needing is the time to turn somthing like this…
…into a “comic” that is hopefully meaningful or funny. Hopefully this will quell any fears all two of my readers may have.
The little human in the image above is named Sophia, and she is my youngest daughter. She was born with a rare disorder known as Turner Syndrome which you can read all about here if you want to know more. All you really need to know about this image is that Sophia was four years of age at the time of this sketch. Due to her condition however, she looks as if she were only a toddler. She cannot walk, her hair barely grows, she is extremely short, and she has never spoken a word, but she can scream and cry quite well.
I could say some BS about how enriched my life has become with a disabled child, but i’ll be honest, this shit sucks. It’s hard work and it never stops. You never get a break. You don’t get a life outside of home anymore. You can’t take her anywhere. Last time we did go out we went to a pizza place. She threw a small packet of ranch sauce at the man next to us. It exploded on him, we left. Like I said, it’s hard.
With all of that said however, I love this kid to death. She drives me up the wall everyday with her antics… but when she gives my that goofy smile you see in the sketch above… I melt everytime. She is the epitome of innocence and sometimes I envy that about her. She will never have to understand how scary this world really is. She just keeps doing her own thing, marching to her own beat while the rest of us keep pretending we know how to adult the right way. I want to be more like her honestly, just hit you with a sauce packet and scream in your face…
I finally came around to picking up the 3DS version of both Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of Time. After spending a few nights in the lands of Termina and Hyrule for the first time in fifteen years or so, I was inspired to dig up a few more of my Legend of Zelda drawings from days past. This drawing of Deku link does not have a unique story behind its creation so far as I can remember. It is nothing more than a love letter from the young me to the adult me that says do not fret, it will get better.
NOTE: This Comic was inspired by Lightning Ellen and her obsessive fandom concerning Lightning from FF13. It’s all in good fun so please don’t warp into my house and crush my stuff with another character’s sword.
