Tomorrow my last newspaper comic of my college career is due.
I’ve been making weekly comics for about 2 years. While reading all my comics I collected on campus, I decided to write to the newspaper before I quit.
This is what I wrote:
My name is Khanh, and I’ve been making comics for the Guardian for about 2 years. I was just reflecting on my work and wanted to say that in retrospect, taking this job was probably one of the best things I’ve ever done. The commitment to draw so often bettered me as a cartoonist and a person.
I know (for me at least) with today’s media, autobiographical content can feel over-saturated. Regardless, I hope my heartbreaks, failures, successes, and existential crises kept you entertained. Ideally, my work opened up a level of sympathy with not only me but others around you… although I would be happy if I made you chuckle just once over my career.
All this nostalgia is getting me misty eyed ; _ ;
If you wanna get nostalgic with me you can read my first comic HERE
