A comic commissioned by @kitty102293 about the woes of not being a min-maxer. Respect your healers or expect no heals 👏

Rat Race - a short comic about surviving and falling into the rat race.

I made this (in a rush for an anthology with amazing friends) 3 years ago, and I have never posted it online! It’s incredible timing too, to remember to post it - when I wrote/drew this I hadn’t entered uni yet, and right now, I’m finishing it (graduation! adulthood! entering the actual rat race!).

It is an incredibly dark comic, but like, as the author of this, who had those fears then and still have those fears now, who wrote this when she was younger and now has some insight to the graduating experience -, I ask you to keep trucking. Considering how awful the world is right now, it’s more important and cooler than ever to embrace the things you love and that make you happy. Your fave books and shows. Exercising. Family you love (found and/or biological). That ice cream in the fridge. Your existence in this world is valuable; love is love is love is love is love. You’re one of those loves.

You may never achieve your dreams (still, be open) - there’s also the possibility that it may change - but you can still have parts of it in your life. What you must do, forever and always, is continue to hope.

PLEASE READ THE SEQUEL - The Road Well Travelled. Which is a newer (therefore wiser?), positive comic about the same topic.

My first short comic in ages! Haven’t drawn comics in over 9 years so getting back into it proved to be a tough but rewarding learning experience.

Not autobiographical, but I did want to have a white nose at one point growing up after a I got called a Chinese pig at school because of my flat nose. For a very long time I thought a long white nose, blond hair and blue eyes could solve all of my problems, but turns out they can’t! I’ve also grown fond of my flat nose and almond-shaped eyes over the years. Enjoy!
