Hmm, this one may be a bit small, so if you’re eyes are as pathetic as mine, click here for a slightly larger version.
Hope everyone’s having a lovely festive time!
o_o; Depressing comic is depressing! Nice page though. ^^
Let’s just hope the Earth randomly explodes and we all go without noticing…
Very deep but been there, done that… not got a t-shirt however…
I went through the same thing last year, and I was only 22. I know it doesn’t sound very promising, but it took an intense nervous breakdown to put things in perspective. I still get freaked out sometimes, rarely though. Obvious answer is enjoy what you have while you can, live deeply, smell roses, blah blah blah. Good luck =)
It is goddamn good to be alive, isn’t it? I was thinking about that after finishing a jog in the rain.
Anna looks adorable in panel seven.
Thats a rough place to be. It comes and goes. I’ve been there before, its even stopped me getting into a relationship but it goes, it’ll come back and it’ll go again. Just use it to drive you to cherish every moment you get!
Loving the upgrade to a larger moleskin. Ellerbisms feels a lot weightier, which isn’t to say it wasn’t powerful before, but– you know– it’s Very Wow.
I hope you don’t mind me asking, Marc, but do you feel the problem in any way ameliorated now you’ve expressed it via comics?
(I totally had to look up what ameliorated meant)
Urrm, not really. I still have moments where the thought of death overpowers me and leaves a scared feeling in my stomach. I do realise that it’s inevitable and it is something that we all go through, but it’s getting to the stage where I just can’t comprehend what it’s like and it scares me.
I used to feel the same way, but then I had a car accident which I shouldn’t have walked away from. After coming that close to death (although there was some dark moments when realisation kicked in), it hasn’t been a worry too much, but I don’t recommend that as a way of dealing with it. Just try to enjoy every moment you’ve got as we never know when its going to end
Thanks for responding, Marc. I was mostly hoping for an answer in the oposite direction, though, of course, it’s obvious that art creation doesn’t always have the restorative qualities people tend to ascribe it.
At any rate, Ellerbisms has certainly had a restorative effect on this reader; sometimes by increments and sometimes substantially.
You can think about death for hours and just go round in circles. The thought of just.. ceasing to exist is very disconcerting. Just be thankful you’ve got someone else along for the ride with you
I love these deep thoughtful Ellerbisms, I like seeing what goes on inside your head as opposed to events that are happening outside of it. If you know what I mean.
Happy holidays! (no more death-dwelling!)
Happy New Year, Marc and Anna!
Wishing you peace, love, and prosperity – all in glorious black-and-white.
Discovering Ellerbisms was a highlight of 2009.
All the best,
I’m about to turn 23 and I feel that way all the time as of late, sometimes it makes me wonder what the point is.
Hey look on the bright side, you are thinking about these things now when you can actually do something about it! Now make sure that you don’t put things off for a decade or two or just take the most convenient route.
Well.That really…..captured…..the emotion……..quite well.
One of the draw backs of having our type of mind. We know and ponder such things, even at inopportune moments like here.
