Read
«. . . author Sarah Andersen uses hilarious (and adorable) comics to illustrate the very specific growing pains that occur on your way to becoming a mature, put-together grownup. Andersen’s spot-on illustrations also show how to navigate this newfound adulthood once you arrive, since maturity is equally as hard to maintain as it is to find … «

Me encantó este libro, creo que es mi favorito de la autora. Los temas que aborda como la confianza en uno mismo, el crecimiento del artista y hasta el tema de los gatos, los presenta desde una perspectiva muy graciosa. También, me encanta que es muy fácil identificarse con las situaciones que muestra. Creo que aveces nos sentimos mal o solos al pensar que solo nosotros tenemos dificultades con ciertas situaciones o actitudes, como por ejemplo el sobre analizar los problemas, cuando realmente es un problema muy común. De esta manera, te hace sentir acompañado a la vez que te saca bastantes risas.

En pocas palabras, la autora te muestra situaciones, hábitos o actitudes que a muchos nos gustaría cambiar de nosotros mismos desde una perspectiva chistosa; y también, con el mismo tono gracioso te muestra alternativas para solucionar esos aspectos o sino te muestra que el problema que creemos inmenso aveces no lo es. Como por ejemplo, cuando creemos que le caemos mal a todo el mundo cuando realmente no es así.
Lo recomiendo al cien por ciento.

This book has many funny comics that I really enjoyed. The author also wrote an illustrated essay about how the internet gives artists and writers the opportunity to share their creations, but it can be overwhelming or frightening because the internet is also a place for anonymous bullying, harassment, and criticism. Sarah encourages creative people to keep following their dreams despite their own insecurities and the opinion of random critics online.

What I liked: The comics about cats were my favorite. Many others were very relatable as well.

What I did not like: The illustrated essay was nice, but it was not what I was expecting because I thought the whole book was about her comics. Also, since I am not an artist and I hardly post anything online, the information was not for me.

Quotes

Having some degree of Internet presence has now become commonplace for most people. And it turns out, when you give people endless access to a shroud of anonymity and a soapbox, the results might just be disastrous. Whereas users congregated in small pockets before, social media has enabled the rise of mass movements that use trolling as a deflection tool for “doing the most damage I can do and then saying it was just a joke.” This culture no longer hides in anonymous corners but exists in the mainstream and is unavoidable

The harassment in particular has been an ugly smudge online, but in my opinion, the level to which we have all accepted it as normal is bizarre and inhumane. Undoubtedly, we have lost empathy in front of our screens

What they have failed to understand is that the times have shifted. “The Internet” and “real life” are no longer two distinct concepts. Instead, they have merged, and we now live in a world that blends the two almost seamlessly
