So I was cleaning my room the other day and I found some disks with some old artwork on them. On one of them was this old comic I drew and posted anonymously on 4chan back in 2009. I never signed it because I drew it in a rush to troll* the comics board (it was a few days before the film would come out and everyone was feeling very emotional about Watchmen) and I was just in the habit of posting doodles anonymously around then. There was a short thread, a few people reposted it for awhile, and then after the movie hype and Watchmen discussions died down I kinda forgot about it.
I found out a few years later that the thing kinda blew up on reddit and some other sites some time after that, and some people even wrote articles about it. Someone even drew an alternate happy ending lol.
It was pretty cool but kinda weird haha.
*When I say troll, it doesn’t mean I take any of the subjects represented here or in Watchmen lightly. I just mean I made it with the intent to cause extreme emotional impact.
Reblogging because I finally know where it came from. Love this. Sadly.
AT LAST A SOURCE!
Bless you, OP. This has been one of my favorite fanworks for any fandom for a very long time and absolutely inspiring in the gut-punching quality of its deceptively simple style and pace. Way to rock the shifted perspective and tear everyone’s hearts out in the process. Never getting over that last line.
god damn it tumblr
IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER

And that would be our introduction to Princess Adrienne, our main protagonist for Princeless (Jeremy Whitley on story, M. Goodwin on art). So let’s take a moment to relax, settle in, and remember that there are comics in the world that don’t result in my hurling…
ok princeless spam over, for now ;)
“…to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all.Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time, the most beloved. His command of color the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty.Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world…no one had ever done it before. Perhaps, no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.” - [x]
I know I don’t watch Dr Who but I know of this episode and I have seen this part of it before.
It makes me cry because if I could time travel this is what I would do. I would take all those who died in obscurity for their time, unrecognised and doubting themselves and show them how great they would become. That they are loved
