I love my fans! I occasionally receive some of the loveliest notes from my fans, which tend to bring tears to my eyes and makes creating comics even more worthwhile. Here’s one from Florian from the Balkan Peninsula:
I am really nervous to write this letter as I am not very good at writing to people, but I’ll give it a try to express my feelings.
2013 is the year I assume was the year I looked at one of those “Suggested sites” and thought “Miss earth looks beautiful, why not give her a visit?”. I don’t remember the first post I saw from you, but it was so awesome-drawn and well-captioned that I just fell in love with your page. Liked immediately!
I know this might sound silly, but your brightness and optimism has quite helped me respect myself more and kick of the negative thoughts of depression. I never thought that an artist has the powers to do more than just draw- you have the power to put a smile on people’s face in the good and bad times!
From the depths of my heart I want to thank you for being “you” and sharing your wonderful work with the rest of the earthlings. I wish you all the best in your life and an amazing path in the orbit of our Mrs. Earth.
Wow, Florian. This brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a heart-felt letter.
I started Unearthed Comics 3 years ago because I was depressed. I was having a really tough time in my life and needed an avenue to explore alternatives. Additionally, for the last several years, I have been doing a lot of inter-personal work, exploring who I am and unwinding negative patterning. I slip sometimes, but I am trying to use my comics to record this journey. Sometimes it’s tricky especially since I am running another business simultaneously and don’t make much $ from the comics. But, it saves me, emotionally. The fact that you felt my intention and energy from my comics means the world to me because if I can help others’ through my silliness, then I feel like I just won the lottery. That is really cool and means the world. Thank you so much for being a fan and taking the time to write. You just made my week.”
