Allie Brosh, Welcome Back!

For Day 29 of the 30 Day Drawing Challenge we just wrapped up, I posted about how much I wished Allie Brosh, one of my favorite cartoonists and bloggers, would come back to the internet after being absent for almost two years. Her hysterically self-centered story-telling coupled with her crude yet detailed and skillful Paint drawings make her blog posts a pleasure to read, and re-read (and re-read, and re-read again).

And, lo and behold, a little more than a week later, she’s back! Of course, I’m not arrogant enough to assume that this has anything to do with what I posted, but it’s a fun coincidence.

All she’s posted this point is an explanation of where she’s been and why she’s back, but I hope and expect to see many more wonderful posts from her.

There’s not much more to add to that, except to repeat that if you haven’t checked out her blog and her art, you really should. You will laugh. Guaranteed.

If you missed the links above, here’s one more link to her blog, Hyperbole and a Half. And now, here’s one more of my favorite images from her last post:

Disclaimer for the slow ones: If you somehow missed that fact, both images used in this post are the work of Allie Brosh. Also, you shouldn’t be so foolish as to misconstrue my unauthorized use of her artwork to mean that she approves of what I post or is even aware of this blog.

One thought on “Allie Brosh, Welcome Back!

  1. So glad to have her back and to know she’s still there and writing, although not, perhaps, what we might call “okay.” That’s the whole point of her last two posts, of course, to describe (extremely well and in the way that only Allie can do) what severe depression is like. A sobering read, amazingly mixed with her humor (and, I think I counted 86 images?!)

    Her book is due out in October, and I for one will be looking out for its release…
