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 )

Quite the picture book you wrote. So short and simple to give such deep meaning. (As cringy as this comment is) I relate exactly to how you wrote this out.

Thank you, I really needed to read this. My parents had an extremely nasty divorce that happened after four years of being separated (with myself and three younger sisters getting bounced back and forth every week). A lot of the things my mother did were hidden from us and she used my father as the burnt of the marriage problems. During this time she also used me as a weapon against my father and mentally spun me in circles. It has taken six years to even become mentally stable again and it required her being cut out of my life.

Because of this and despite my healing I've still struggled with the fact that my family is broken and I was the unable to fix it. Your comic, although it didn't show things being resolved in a way that most would want, pictured a reality that I could relate to. Reading it has helped mend little parts of myself that I wasn't aware that needed healing.

So thank you for creating it and for showing us that art can and will help heal the rifts we have.
