It’s one year to the day when I created and published the very first Happysad cartoon. Looking back, I feel I’ve come an amazingly long way. When I see the first batch of HS cartoons, the crude style they were drawn in, I sometimes cringeÂ andÂ get the urge to do them all over again… But that would be tantamount to revisionism, so let’s just look back at them with an endearing smile.
It’s amazing what Happysad has become. Going back through the archives I found at least three instances where I was about to give up because I thought my inspiration had run dry. Yet somehow Happysad has started living a life on its own, and sometimes I feel like I’m just a witness to where it’s all going.
I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me by writing all those nice comments.Â YouÂ reallyÂ haveÂ noÂ ideaÂ whatÂ aÂ profoundÂ influenceÂ HappysadÂ hasÂ hadÂ onÂ me.
