Just… Graduating is hard, ok?! Downtime was very much needed that week, for myself and for others! I heard so many stories of friends who felt they neglected the important people/areas of their life for a little 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper.
This dumb strip is actually pretty close to my heart… It was written the day after the Charlie Hebdo attacks. It really reminded me why I do some of this stuff- good humor always has to take a risk, and sometimes that risk is… terrifyingly high. But then, maybe that’s how you know you’re doing it right.
However, being the sociologist/person-on-tumblr that I am, I also found a few articles that point out the ways Hebdo satirized not only the terrorists, but their entire religion as well. Which is why this strip is so vague.
