Dear Wonderful World

I will get around to reprinting this little book of two stories later this year (only made about 30 copies on the first run because they were kinda expensive to print). While waiting here is the story I like more of the two.

It is a story about a gently depressed bartender who makes a wish and then thinks about it (instead of the other way around as is generally recommended)


"Dear Wonderful World"

























*

The end. Emma had the best reaction to the ending: "I think (the bartender) changed the wish (to make the boss come back) so that the dog could be happy"

I really really love it when my friends make my stories so much better than they actually are sob


Let me know if you'd like a copy when I get.. around.. to it. Happy Monday

I'm crying, and I for reals don't cry at that many things--I swear! I'd love to buy the volume if you do another printing. For now I need to go collect my dignity, thank you <3 <3 <3

Truly heartwarming ;w; I love the colors and simplicity, it's like I can feel the sunshine coming from the images.

I'd be interested in a copy if shipping to distant parts is feasible!

This is such a delightful story, thank you so much for sharing it we us! As always, your art is flawless and your storytelling brings tears to my eyes. You have such a distinctive beautiful style in all your works and I admire that so much. I won't be able to buy a copy if you do decide to reprint this due to lack of funds (and I live in Canada, postage will be terrible) so that's why I appreciate so much that you've put this on the web. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart and please don't ever stop.

The frames in which he talks about the dog waiting broke my heart and remade it. Absolutely lovely. ♥

The little touches of color in the shadows give such depth--I am in stewing in awe and jealousy.

The end. Emma had the best reaction to the ending: "I think (the bartender) changed the wish (to make the boss come back) so that the dog could be happy" <==== Ohhh I had the exact same reason too! <3 <3 /hugs hugs

This is so wonderful! I feel like translating it in BM and let my psychiatry ward have one! May I ?
Because I've seen people who are having bipolar and depressive disorders etc who has tried committing suicide before for various reasons. And hearing their stories always makes me 'I wish I could say/do something to help them' indefinitely I am still a student and any movement or words I make may backfire on me instead D:
So I was really afraid to do it all the time. I even had an incident happened during home-visit days but thank god my friends and I was fine.

Look at me babble! hwei this is really wonderful! I hope you print it someday. I really much wish to own a copy still! <3

Hello Hwei. I'd love a copy! Do tell me how much it costs?
I was the creepy CF-er last year who had you doodle Sanji in my book. I apologize profusely for being so awkward and weird ! I've loved your art since forever and I have no regrets purchasing your works and stories.

I love this particular one too, and I was actually wondering if you would pick up Lalage and make him a recurring character. So Im very happy that this is the case ! I love your friend's take on the ending as well, I think that it fits the story so beautifully overall.


thank you so much again.
