Transcript

Note: the comic is all drawn in a still-cartoony but more realistic style than I usually use, with thick, dark black lines and messy, bright colors. There are a lot of hearts and stars doodled in random places in the comic, like a drawing by a nine or ten year old girl. Most of the writing is in little-girly cursive.

Let Me Tell You A Secret

Panel 1: There is a little girl.
Girl: Come closer. I will show it to you!

Panel 2: A picture of a big wardrobe
Do you know how those kids found a magical world inside a big old WARDROBE?

Panel 3: The little girl, again, gesturing to herself.
Girl: I have one, too!

Panel 4: A long panel of the little girl running across grass and flowers. The sky is a rainbow. At the end of the panel, she leaps into the air and flies away.
Only MINE is much, Much, MUCH better!

Panel 5: I will describe this one as it goes.
To start, you can turn into any animal:
bird (a picture of a bird)
fox (a picture of a fox)
tortoise (a picture of a tortoise)
velociraptor (a picture of a velociraptor)
ANY ANIMAL!

Panel 6: A picture of a unicorn.
Except for unicorns

Panel 7: An angry unicorn, up close. It is snorting.
Unicorns get MAD when you try to impersonate them.

Panel 8: There is a thing that looks like a poo with eyes and arms.
And they will turn you into a GOON like Little Bunny Foo-Foo.
I think a GOON is like a hairy poo.

Panel 9: Our little girl is dressed up as a queen with a crown, sceptre, and ermine cloak.
In my world, I am the QUEEN.

Panel 10: She is sitting on a throne that is made out of PEZ candy.
I have a THRONE made of giant PEZ candies.

Panel 11: There is a happy ice cream and a scary broccoli.
You get to eat ice cream if you are a girl.
But if you are a boy you have to eat BROCCOLI*

*with not even any cheese.

Panel 12: The little girl is whispering into a cupped hand as if she is telling a secret.
Girl: The way to get there is a secret, too.

Panel 13: A picture of a wardrobe, this time in silhouette, with the words inside it.
It is much BETTER than some SISSY WARDROBE.

Panel 14: The little girl holds her hands up.
Girl: Do you want to see?

Panel 15: The girl is standing in front of a toilet. Her little sister is on the other side of the toilet. The toilet is radiating magic powers, stars, and pink curlicues.
You have to flush yourself down the Toilet!
Little Sister: That's gross!

Panel 16: The girl is wearing her crown again.
Well, then, I guess I get toe be QUEEN all by MYSELF!

Panel 17: The little sister bursts into tears.
Little Sister: MOM!



This entry was written for therealljidol Week 9: The Better Half

Ah, I love these comics! And this one is so funny, I wish as a kid I came up with something like this to do to my sis xD

I used to have a magical world under my bed where you could visit the characters from all your favorite cartoons. But then if my brother asked to go visit the Thundercats, I would tell him he couldn't go because Lion-O had a broken arm.

This was super adorable. Maybe my favorite of yours yet!

Thank you! I had fun making it!

This is really charming. I could see a whole book with this character alone.

Aha, thanks! I seriously could have kept going with it forever.

Thank you! This one totally got drawn completely twice because I fucked up the coloring the first time, so I am glad to hear it looks good!

I love the style of drawing you did this time around...it's amazing how you are able to do something a bit different each week!

Thank you! I sort of feel like I am not doing enough to vary my entries so drawing in a different style is sort of my version of "I'm going to write fiction this week!" I really feel like I need to push my boundaries a bit more.

Do not anger the unicorns!

THEY WILL TURN YOU INTO A GOON.

THERE IS A MAGICAL LAND DOWN THE TOILET YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.

LOL!She did try to share with her sister. :D

SHE IS VERY GOOD AT THAT. IT IS NOT HER FAULT HER SISTER DID NOT WANT TO GO DOWN THE TOILET.

Ha! I love the mad unicorn idea.

No laughing at the unicorns! They will turn you into a goon!

That is really cute...and I love the little details you put into it!

Thank you so much! I had fun adding the weird little details.

Incredibly cute! I even had my husband come in and look! hahah

You're so funny! I like the way the coloring came out on this one. :)

Thanks! I am glad to hear it because I totally did this one over from scratch on account of utterly FAILING on the coloring the first time.

I wanna buy an entire graphic novel based on this. SRS.

CAT I MADE IT JUST FOR YOU.

Not really, but awwwwwwww. I realized from your comment that it is like, all the things Cat likes in one place. I guess it needs more kittens in the graphic novelization.

Thank you!

Aww! I love this one :D

This is so cute!

And a belated thank you for the Christmas card, too! :D

Oh you're super welcome! Thanks!

This one reminds me of those stories from the American Girl magazines, I think the girl's name was Amanda? And she wrote in her notebooks and added all these doodles? That's what this reminds me of.

I love the "with not even any cheese" part. :)

Oh the American Girls magazine was after my time. But awesome!

Thanks! I liked that part too.

I like how the broccoli is so angry. GRR!

It is some mean broccoli!

your comments are always great.

I really love your drawings. -- I look forward to each new topic to see what you've done. :)
