1000 Words book is ready for order here at HERE at 4DE.com :D


For previews and other info, please visit 1000 WORDS Book Pre-order w/ photos by yuumei

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"1000 Words" was inspired by a comment on one of my other work "Tape it Back Together" Tape it Back Together by yuumei . In the comment, this person told me when she first saw the drawing, she thought it was sad but couldn't connect with the situation. Three months later, her parents divorced and when she saw the drawing again, she began to sob. It made me wonder, had she shown something like the torn up picture to her parents, would it have made a difference?

This story also explores the purpose of art, what can be art, and what art means to me personally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

:iconahnline: made this beautiful tune for my story :D yuumei.deviantart.com/art/1000… :heart:

Woot! I finished my first ever one shot comic! :D It's 56 pages excluding the copyright page. I don't know how long it took me but it was a lot of work.

For all those who are curious, the little girl's name is Fantine, and the guy's name is Linus. I MIGHT continue 1000 W0RDS after I finish my other projects years from now :D

Drawn in Paint tool SAI, texture and editing done in Photoshop, web comic programming done in Macromedia Flash.

Please check out my other flash comic, Knite Knite: Chapter 1 by yuumei and interactive narrative, Rumination Rumination by yuumei.

1000 W0RDS by *yuumei - It's rarely you ever see an entire community support a single artist like this, and when that happens it should be a memory well kept. This art is worth it, its impact is incredible. It's my honour and joy to feature this piece of true art. Thank you community for your MASS number of suggestions, we hear you. :) Well deserved *yuumei. ( Featured by OneFreeInternet )

I've been looking for this, for so long... 
This is beautiful, and sad at the same time.
Every time I look to end my drawing, or just stop drawing. 
I watch this... And with more tries, I too can become better.
I too can become one of the greats. 

When I get better, would it be okay if I made a little something? 
Similar to this, but not exactly like this. It's just my thanks..

This was beautiful; sad, but beautiful. I can't quite get the feeling from it as my parents were never together, but I'm in tears right now.

Oh, so it was you who made this. I read it once probably years before I even made my account, I think through Imgur. It's just as gorgeous and inspiring as I remember it. I found myself misty-eyed this time around, and I'm so glad that I found the artist behind it!

Please keep on being this awesome :D.
