Live Old, Die Young
Date Completion: 12/08/2015 - 27/08/2015

This is a personal depiction of dealing with death and grieving whilst growing up. 
It speaks for itself, but don't hesitate to ask me what's "going on" in the picture, so to speak.

I only put in the year that my loved ones passed away, because I didn't want to be too specific with the details.
(Please respect my decision for this.)

Dan the Man (Died 2015)
- My cousin on my Mum's side.
- He celebrated his 21st birthday this year, but I'm a year older than him. So I'm pretty much going to outlive him.
- We grew up together (more or less during the school holidays) with video games, riding down steep driveways on skateboards and enjoying the natural side of life (eg: fishing, interacting with the English Bulldog, etc...).

Grandma Dawn (Died 2009)
- My Dad's mother.
- She was 80, but perished after a prolonged suffering of osteoporosis.
- It was during the year that I was in my early high school years, had a part-time job delivering newspapers (hence the sutble hint of Michael Jackson's death on the front cover) and brought up on traditional past-times (eg: knitting, playing with dolls, etc...). So it was basically a hell of a year for me to recover from. Let alone go through another day of being told from a teacher that I was "selfish" for going through my grief. What a b!tch.

Overall, it was hard. But you know what? Death is a part of life. Sad, but true.

I'm thinking of starting a blog through Google Blogger, so I've thought up some blogger usernames. 
I made up a total of 30 possible username ideas, so I trimmed the HUGE list down to my personal favourites.
Here's my Top 5 and tell me in the comments section below what you like:

1) Articulate Spirit
2) Aquatic Butterfly
3) Detail Drama
4) Heroine of Art (HeArt)
5) Miss Identified or Vagabond Vulture

You can vote for which number you want so I can tally up the final results.
Note: This will last for two weeks at most, so get in quick!

Dislikes: Maths, being told what to do needlessly, Bullies, "Fakies" (You know what I'm talking about when people are like that! :angered:), forced into rushing things, the emotionally distant, people with an IQ of a raisin, Nagging, The News (or just the constant negative delivery of the media itself! :shrug:), People who can say a certain word, but don't know what it ACTUALLY means (eg: The "F" word... >__<) and I don't want to continue... :doh:

Hobbies: Sing to my MP3 player in the dark, draw (as you do when you're an cartoonist like me! ^^;),

Thanks for the llama!

You list your nationality as "New Zealand European". What do you mean by the "European" part?

You're welcome. Happy birthday. :D

It means I'm white. Or British, either of the two is valid.
