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

This is beautiful. I love it to pieces, I can't even express. I'd love a copy if/when you get it reprinted.

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.
