One of my best comics until now, but with limited techniques cause I did this more than five years ago, inked by hand, colored with a mouse. :) Anyway, the joy is always the same.

The word "Ngo" means many things in Vietnamese: "interesting", "me", "meeting", "enlightenment"

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-03-17
Suggester Said: "This simple yet fantastic short comic can really lift up your mood and maybe you'll see some part of yourself in it. It reminds me of what important and precious the most in life. Another little thing, he did the whole work with a mouse. " ( Suggested by Phongtu and Featured by dust-bite )

OMG ..This is really fantastic .

I'm so glad that it got a DD ,otherwise I'd miss this wonderful comic .

The story is cute and easily understandable . Your use of colors to show the mood change is something really brilliant .

And the fact that you could express the whole comic without using any words (or even sound effects) makes it "international" .

I remember that my art-teacher once said that the wordless cartoons are the most international and professional as they speak to everyone who sees them (and cross the language boundaries).

I liked how you showed that the teacher was calling him when he wasn't listening :D ..I don't claim that I understood what everybody was talking about though ^^;

I can feel that artist . I spend my whole work day longing to my PC :D

I think that he gets lost in his own world .

You know that kind of moments,when everything in the world fades away but the thing that you're focusing on ?!

You did all of this using a mouse? What patience and determination! This comic doesn't even look as if you used a mouse!

I do love this little story. It does show a lot of how we feel, and how in the end the little things make everything better. Excellent work!

I saw the thumbnail for this and thought it looked cool. IT'S EVEN COOLER NOW BECAUSE THE TITLE IS MY LAST NAME. >:3 That, and the paneling and style for this is amazing.

That......is just awesome.....especially when I read that you did all with a mouse. I suck using a mouse! :wow:

And this totally relates to me, especially with how invisible or forgettable I am.

A fantastic collection of pieces! Each one awesome in their own right. I like it! And congratz on the DD :D

Notebook being scribbled by itself is very sad reminder of many creative artists like me who "scribbles something" like a blueprint down on paper that is 10 years ahead of its time,and dont think much about what you as the creator has drawn until companies 10 years later steals your design getting paid instead of you >;-B(
