Hi Kao! I just wanted to say that I really love your comics, Mondo Mango and Magical Boy are reallyreally good stories, and wowee let me tell you about the art uwu
I just hope to see more of your work in a very long future. It's also very admirable how you put back all your negative feelings to keep doing what you love for and also how you achieved to gain something of it!, because that is something I'm struggling a lot right now, I'm trying to correct that and seeing how someone like you has been dealing with this is so motivational for me... So I just hope to keep looking your work for a very long time more. Love ya Kao!
