Antarctica Asylum - Snowman 4 by ForgetfulRainn Antarctica Asylum - Snowman 4 by ForgetfulRainn
"Really Deep Thoughts"

This is the first time since 2006 that I draw the Nameless Snowman! It's a resurection, no less.

The Nameless Snowman has a tenuous habit of wearing different hats all the time, and sometimes he opts for something weird, such as a boot.

Ban Emo? I just learned what it is...and am trying to be ... that.
By the way, what's the nameless snowman's name? Frosty or something like that?

Do you read Ouspensky? You might enjoy "The Psychology of Man's Possible Evolution".

I can totally relate to Gwen's thoughts at the moment....I hope that doesn't make me emo =P
sometimes I wouldn't even care if I died because it does mean nothing in the great nothingness called universe, mankind tends to see themselves as important, which is not true.......

oh sorry, now you have to deal with my depression from today (emo again, I know)
so I'll better stop


but it's a cool cartoon :thumbsup:

Thank you!

Humans tend to see themselves as too important, but very often they see themselves as less important than they should be, and that's just as bad! Good people especially tend to undermine their own worth and importance, and because of that, they don't do as much good to this world as they could; so it's everyone's duty to cheer up those good people into action! And let's ban the word "emo" from everyone's vocabulary!

hey, who is the psychologist here....but you are right....I think if there is sense in being then you have to create it for yourself, nobody will do it for you...

lol i really dig that snowman.
The sence of humor is perfect.
I just wont fav it, cause i think it needs something more consise.
I`ve seen the series and that, but it seems a bit scattered.

A thought:
When you done some of them and thing it resembles a book or a mag or a collection post one dev with all the associated files in a zip folder.

About the art i have not much complains, when the sorry is like this.(Althou i think you should try to make a connection beatwin stories (like one char appears in one, and something happens couple of strips after it appear again picking up the situation he was previously in.....it`s kind of hart to explain at this time of morning.

It remembers me of those Garfield books.

Thank you! And yeah, I know my strip is anachronistic in nature (without timely order); it is indeed a bit scattered, but I'll explain why to you.

When I first worked on this cartoon, in 2006, I was planning to create a whole series of strips that would eventually make a complete story. But I worked on episodes from various points in the story, and then I gave up on the project. Recently, I decided I would post that work anyway; it made me a bit sad to know I worked on something that no one would get to see. But then of course, I wouldn't have a good time-line, and it would indeed appear somewhat chaotic.

Think of it this way: you're seeing me at work before I have finished the complete thing; and if I ever get enough to make a little book, then I will order the strips in a way that makes a coherent and complete little story.

And yes, I should make "series", where the strips follow each other and make a longer story than just themselves. Except for this cartoon here, everything else was material I took from 2006, and so there was nothing new. This one cartoon is the FIRST new thing since 2006, since after I gave up.

Garfield! Garfield is sometimes cool, and often boring (to me). Don't compare me to him! Ahaha... Fav this anyway! I beseech you!

It shows to different sides: The very happy one( snowman) and the emoish(penguin)

Yep! The Snowman always has this shining smile, and the penguin's (Gwen) can never be even seen, because its "nose" hides it.

And argh, don't call him emoish! I see what you mean, but pleeeeeease, he's just philosophising! If that's being emo, then Shakespeare was emo too (the quote is from his "Macbeth") and to an extent, everyone who ever had a thought that was depressing would be emo! Let us prevent this! Let us limit being emo to... sideways fringers and black nail-polish ok? :D
