1000 Words book is ready for order here at HERE at :D

For previews and other info, please visit

"1000 Words" was inspired by a comment on one of my other work "Tape it Back Together" . 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.


:iconfanartist: made this beautiful tune for my story :D [link] :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 and interactive narrative, Rumination .

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 )

The moment I saw the ripped drawing in the envelope, I teared up and smiled. That was one of the most beautiful things I've ever read in my life.

I cried when she said they "Divorced the week after." This was beautiful, and amazing at that. I can't believe one comment made something so beautiful. <3
