Strange, but it is still coherent whether read from top to bottom or left to right.

Heh, y'know what? You're on to something there. The right hand column, in particular, reads pretty naturally from top to bottom.

That's pretty damn fantastic, I'd say. If read from top to bottom, then the left column all becomes this build up to you bringing up the topic of the conversation in the top-middle panel. And then emotions run high [B3] and it's clear that you're thinking about this a lot[B2 and B4], and feel strongly about it. And finally, we get to the third column where you get to the actual meat of the topic.

Really, I think it works even better this way. It almost reads more like an actual segment of a speech about envy that you've performing in front of a crowd for. I'm glad I took another look at this one. Brilliant job, and a DD very well deserved!

God this cannot be said enough. I completely agree. For me in a way, my envy makes me want to improve my work constantly. Does anyone else feel that way?

I see that less as outright 'envy' and more you being pushed to better yourself when you see other artists' work. It's when you cross that thin line over to envy and your work begins to suffer for it that it becomes a problem.

Yes!!!  This is also, I think, a key to being successful in anything in general.  Instead of wallowing in bitter feelings after failure and whatnot, you should get out and do something about it!  

I just recently figured this out, it's awesome to see someone signal boosting this!

I'm trying to not be that person.

It still smacks me occasionally, but now I smack back.

Why not?

I don't know you in real life. I seriously just thought this comic was cool and this is the second comment I saw, so I have no idea if you really are 'that person' or whatever. But so what? What do you mean by this, that it's too late or something? Because lemme tell you - it's not. The only way that will be true is if ya keep thinking that it is.

You read the comic too, right? THIS guy struggled with the same stuff, and look! He has a daily deviation! I don't know anything about the artist either, but to accomplish things, you can't think that you can't, or you'll never be able to move past an obstacle. You're a real person with real thoughts, and you're in charge of your own destiny.

Look, I know this sounds really, REALLY cheesy, but rarely, some things are repeated in stupidly-dramatic speeches for a reason. Sometimes things are repeatedly a lot because they're true to a lot of people. But here's what I'm driving at: Giving up to something you don't like, about the world or about yourself or about anything, isn't an answer. So what if you 'already are' that person? People make mistakes. People make years worth of mistakes. But in the grand scheme of your life, whats a few years gonna be, if it helped you get where you wanted to go? I'm not saying you should change in a matter of days or anything, that'd be insane. But if you want to not be "that person", believing you'll never change at all isn't going to do anything but make you sad, and who wants that?

By the way, this is coming from me, one of the laziest people I know. But I still believe in these things, and while doing is obviously a big, important thing, there's something to be said for believing.

I apologize for getting back to you so late on this. You actually took the time to write out a thoughtful and good intentioned comment. I guess I should explain myself for that comment. The day after I wrote that comment, I was checked into a mental hospital for depression and suicide watch... My state of mind when I wrote that comment was horrible, and looking at it... makes me feel really immature because I am better than that. I want to thank you because everything you said in that comment is true. I still struggle with thoughts sometimes but I can see the light and truth most of the time. I know I can change. I just need to make sure it is for the better.

Thanks!

It's less me talking about lack of recognition, though. It's more about that feeling of, no matter what your successes, feeling inferior compared to other, more popular artists and letting your work flounder as a result. 

As someone said to me over on Twitter: "They're moving at their own pace, and so are we. We're running different races entirely."

Basically: be the best you can be and let the work and success of others inspire you, rather than getting caught up in destructive and negative thinking.
