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 )

Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover somebody that truly knows what they are talking about on the net. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you're not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

Woah, this is really, really great. 

The atmosphere and the storyline is very great. This is also inspiring. There is an interesting quote spoken by Mr. Artist, 

"Art is about content, not skills"


Overall, this is absolutely beautiful, stunning, inspiring, and amusing :-)

I can't believe this was made 8 years ago! Man, I'm late and yet... I have to say that this is simply gorgeous. Truly beautiful and I love the message behind it. Made me smile and tear up albeit my sh!tty day so thank you. I'd write it a thousand times like the girl in the story but I feel I've got my point across. You're a true inspiration <3

For some reason, I imagine Linus with a British accent. Is that okay or did you intend to give him a different voice?
