jyesherwell asked: What's the best general life advice you can give?


Answer:

explodingdog:

The best advice I can give you is no advice.
You don’t need my advice or advice from anyone else.
You already know what to do. You already know the decisions you need to make.
Advice just gets in the way of what you know you need to do.

If there was a injured turtle in the middle of the road, you might say to the friend you are walking with “Hey, do you think I should go help that turtle so it doesn’t get hit by a car?”. But, you already know you don’t want the turtle to get hit by a car. Just go save it.

Don’t get me wrong I love to give advice and like to read other’s advice. I even like those advice books and would love to write “How to get the most out of drawing overemotional stick figures on the internet!” It could be a bestseller, at least to me. And that is is the problem with advice, anything I say is really advice I should have listened to.

You need advice for you.
What if right now there is a turtle on your front step. A turtle just saved from getting hit by a car. If you are not watching you could open your front door and not even see the turtle. Then you trip on the turtle and your head crashes onto the pavement. There is nothing left of you except a bloody mess that also killed the turtle in the fall. It would be awful.

But, if I tell you “Watch out for turtles!” you will see the turtle, step around it and head out into life going on to be the world’s most wonderful person.

So that is my advice, “Watch out for turtles.”

or you could check out this older advice I gave to someone else.

I got a fancy tablet! 
I still might prefer markers!

I have had a serious thing for Detective Lennie Briscoe since I was a little girl. 

Welp. I hope you like it.

Would you like to flip through a thick book of Dailies like that too? Well, I’m very happy to announce that Conundrum Press will be publishing a collection of The Dailies in May 2015. Soon you’ll be able to read The Dailies without the use of electricity. If you purchase the book, it will occupy physical space in your house, apartment, or station wagon. You will be able to write your name in it, and lend it to a friend forever. 

We’re still figuring out the details, but I can say that the book will be full colour and will contain 2-3 years of consecutive strips. 

As for the the sketchbook in the video, it contains daily comics made from October 21, 2012 - July 21, 2014. That’s 639 strips or 213 pages. This is my third completed sketchbook since starting the project in 2010, though the first two books had fewer pages.

Anyway, I’ll have more details on the book soon. Stay tuned.
