Here's my Mastodon #introduction post! I'm Trungles. I draw things. I'm generally happy for you. Yay!
I can't wait to catch up on Riverdale to see what sort of wacky hijinks my favorite small town high schoolers are up to.
Good morning! Everything seems chill over here, which is nice.
Long post; diaspora feels Show more
I'm doing some light dramaturgy for a graphic novel project, and looking for old images of pre-war Vietnam is really difficult on a lot of levels for me. All the pictures are either pertaining to the war or they're depicting resort towns that used to be the fishing villages my family used to live in. It's vexing that I should find some connection to what's ostensibly my home town, but nothing I recognize is still there.
It has been a little while, holy buckets. I'm glad to see folks are generally doing alright!
I've been steadily discovering my writing process, and this side of a comic is so weird and topsy turvy. It's made me appreciate comics and graphic novels a lot more as a medium because it really does take two different literate proficiencies to make it happen - text and images. Being typically on the image-side, I take for granted that I still conceptualize stories as prose before I start making pictures. That's super weird.
Writing a graphic novel, mostly out of love but a little bit out of spite also.
Good morning! Look how cute you are. You're so cute. Look at all that.
RIP Isao Takahata
LOL it looks like the star meme made its way here, too. Delightful!
Yay! I got an agent. I'm so pleased with this development.
I had a rough hour at work so I took a five-minute Cardi B dance break in the bathroom, and now I'm ready to do all the things.
Twisted Romance Issue 4 comes out today!

I'm gonna be going to Seattle in a couple days, and I'm so nervous and excited. It's gonna be fun! I'm excited to see so many buds!
Also, in looking at folktales, the sentiment is largely that it's very silly to find the One True Origin of these stories. The stories are often similar, but they're supposed to tell you more about the values of the people who told the stories than the ins and outs of the actual events of the tale. All variants are valid.
I mean, I can't say for sure. A lot of these stories have a million variants over time and place, but the oldest ones tend to come from the Asian continent.
