Fisheye Placebo: Ch0 - Part 7 by yuumei Fisheye Placebo: Ch0 - Part 7 by yuumei

If you're not familiar with the story, please read the Fisheye Placebo: Intro first. 

This strip is inspired by a personal experience I had as a child in China. Like in the story, I was in the car with my dad when a group of street children came begging for money. My dad immediately locked the doors and explained to me that these kids were known to stab and rob people when the passengers open the window to give them food or money. And like in the story, my dad also grew up in extreme poverty, having to eat rats for survival in his childhood, but instead of sympathizing with the street children, he believed that anyone can pull themselves up like the way he did so there was no need for charity. 

There is no moral to take away from this situation. I can't say what would have been the right thing to do at that moment, but I did gain a better sense of the class struggle that existed and still exists. I want to show in this strip how ignorant and spoiled Vance and Alex were, and the kind of country that Frey and Robin wants to change.

No. OK no. Don't say that. Don't EVER say that OK! Just because you think that somebody is better than you doesn't mean that you yourself aren't good. Not does it mean that you won't ever get to be as good as the people you think you're worse than. So no, don't ever say that you're not good at drawing because somebody else's art may be "better", because that is bullshit.

On another note I am completely in love with your artwork and I would do anything I could if it meant I could make artwork like you do. You are my inspiration and all your work holds something significant for me.
