Anonymous asked: Dear Miss Hanna, how do you explain your whish to become an artist to parents who want you to be a doctor and would be very disapointed if you do not? on the one hand i am terrified to disapoint them, which led to me giving up even trying to become a better artist; but i am starting to feel more and more unappy because i do not have a reason for learning so much at school and getting the good marks. i don´t know what i actually want anymore. i am confused and indicisive. what´s your opinion?
This is a really big question! Unfortunately it’s one of those things you have to figure out for yourself. There are too many things I don’t know about your life in order to give good advice.
On the note of talking to your parents I think its important that you first of all explain that you’re unhappy with how things are now and that you don’t know if you want to be a doctor. Make them understand that you have to be able to choose your own path in life and still get love and support, because it’s your life and it’s important that it’s worth living. But yeah, try not to drop everything on them at once. The talk about being an artist can come later - after you’ve looked into what “becoming an artist” would mean for your life and know that it’s still something you really want to try. Getting as much information about this as you can will help you decide.
And if you can you should really try to keep your grades/marks good, because thats never a bad thing.
Big questions like these are best tackled by some type of counselor. Check if there’s anyone at your school, or ask a teacher where you can find one.
wasting time playing with colours on a comic that’s going to be b/w …
lemontrain asked: for the lola and billy comic, was lola inspired by Lolita possibly?
Sure! like her name: “She was Lola in slacks”
I know they’re not that much alike but visually I was going for something a bit Lindsay Lohan-y :
I’ll gladly answer any asks you guys have about New Frontier but it’d be cooler if I could do it over at the New Frontier making-of-Tumblr!
