- Thank you for such a nice comment Tailcoat ^_^ I'm glad you like it, I hope you enjoy the rest too!

Well today was the opening of my Final Year Show. Theres been such a big build up to it that the actual event was a bit surreal!
At the beginning of the show I felt depressed for various reasons, mainly the worry about what the heck I'm gonna do about jobs and housing in the near future, and naturally about my own work, which after Uni now makes me feel rubbish just looking at it!
It really becomes clear in times like this though as to what is most important in life! I felt so anxious and nervous at the beginning of the show, but over the hours, one by one, members of family started showing up. First my oldest friend, then Dad, then big Sister and last Mum. It occurred to me at this point that the only people I cared about seeing my work were these guys, and as soon as I heard *what was probably half sentimental* good comments from my family, I felt much better and happier for the rest of the evening. And through talking to an old family friend and former tutor, I also found a very promising programme which might be perfect for reassuring my fears of having somewhere to stay and work after Uni.

In other news, I watched the opera 'Carmen' yesterday, it was so awesome! They were filming it live from Royal Opera House around various 'big screens' in the UK. So I took a 3 min walk into town to watch it! Its weird being able to go back to your house to get drink/blankets during a stage interval! Very peculiar too was that one of my teavhers was there apparently, sitting behind me! I had no idea until he told me today, I think he was pleased that someone my age was watching an opera XD I was admittedly one of the few people under age 30 there :P

Anyway, Carmen is so cool! The characters and music were fantastic, and the main character, Carmen, was so sexy and free willed, I loved how she just did whatever she wanted! It was sad how that was her downfall in the end. I'm not sure if in the the time it was written you are meant to root for her, but I thought she was great and found the lead guy to be such a possessive jerk in the end! (He seemed so nice in Act 1 too XD) My favorite part by far was the little flamenco number in Act 1, awesome! I want to go to Spain now, the music was very atmospheric and gave off such a calm/warm evening sort of feeling that I associate with Spain! :P

Final Year Show? I assume that's the equivalent of our Senior Thesis Show; I still have another two years for that haha. I'm glad it went well for you :D

Never herd of Carmen before, but it sounds cool. I haven't really seen any operas, so I've been much more of a person for musicals since those are what I go see with my family. Les Miserables is one of my favorites~

Now on topic with your comic...I'm still eager to see how this is going to go wrong. How can music be baaaad?! I need to know! *keeps watching*

Congratulations on the Final Show! I hope you do well and find a good job! :)
The college I'm going to this fall does an opera now and then- I can't wait to see one! It sounds like a lot of fun.

And IB is getting very exciting now- a page a day isn't enough! I want to read it faster! :D

I wish I could of gone to your final show :O
I'm also a little worried about attending Uni, you see I'm not sure if I'm prepared enough for it. And the thought of having to move again from the friends I have come to care about at college scares me. When people ask me if I'm excited I lie and say yes. But I'm not really. And there's that daunting feeling of life after Uni...? Plus I still got that question in my head, is illustration something I really want to do?? Or am I doing it cos I got no other options? I sure hope that's not the case. I hope I don't sound too depressing I just wanted to share my doubts too. I think I'm just sad about having to leave my friends and classmates more than anything else.
Ah but don't forget that I'm a fan of your comics and will support your work no matter what. I feel really privileged that I got to know a experienced comic artist such as you ^_^
