    Whoa. Feels like what all artists experience.

    These comics make me wish I had even half the artistic ability you have.

    Some⁽ʷʰᵒ⁾ say life is a waiting room.

    A waiting room to a waiting room.

    It’s waiting rooms all the way away

    I think you might want to have Subnormality home page point to this comic – unless this just happens to be the waiting room for the new comic… 🙂

  5. I don’t mind spending a lot of time in the waiting room if it’s filled with artists singing songs, drawing comics or telling amazing stories. 😉

    I read this comic in significantly less time than 40min.

    Who are you, and what have you done to the author?

    Depends on what “making it” is.
    Since I find the idea of complete strangers reading what I write to be both confusing and vaguely horrifying, and I like having a day job (luckily one with a bit of down time to write in), I consider that I’ve “made it” in that I can entertain my circle of friends at times and have a cohesive body of work for myself.

    The room, the process, the whole deal, really, is what you make it. Instead of waiting room, I chose an empty house to decorate for myself and my guests.

    I’ve jokingly told my family and friends that when I die, they can use all my drafts and papers to create a nice funeral pyre for my body. That said, they can do what they want with it, I won’t be there to care about my privacy anymore, much less the disposition of some paper.

    There’s nothing on the other side of the door. Not that you’ll ever find out, you’re in there working on your craft like they told you in public school.

    The door never opens. If you open it you’ll see the doorway was bricked up sometime in 2002. Pry those bricks up and you’ll find additional walls with earlier dates. The wall marked 1958 is grafittoed “Fatty Arbuckle would have supported Gamergate,” in Urban Decay Vice Lipstic (shade: Roach).

    Once you get that far, you may as well givw up and leave. But once you gather your things and head back the way you came in, you’ll discover that way’s now bricked up.

    ethel is such a great character. she singlemindedly devotes herself to her passion… as an easily-distracted 20-something i could benefit from that mentality 🙂 thank you as always, winston ❤

    oh, BTW — your link for hitmen doesn't work anymore. it's redirecting me to some site and trying to auto-downlad flash… pretty sketchy…

    comicfury went offline a few years ago. thorsby posted hitmen (and all of their other weird, wonderful comics!) over here — http://hitmen.thecomicseries.com/
