"Falling in love is not a rational process. It can’t be planned or avoided. It happens—for good or bad, it simply happens. I knew he’d eventually leave. I knew we couldn’t be together, but I fell anyway."
Adulthood continues to baffle me.
Go to school, get a job. Parents want you to chase your dreams. Somehow you do it and get stuck under middle-management.
Find someone to love, and marry. Even when they say they still love you, they don’t stay. Even if they did stay, they can’t even picture sharing a home with you. It’s like all the men I’ve dated are afraid women are going to smother them if they stay in one place too long.
I really wish I could fucking say I don’t truly want any of it. The life together, a family, but I’d be lying. It’s probably just not meant for me.
I’m just so tired.
Like the design of functional objects such as chairs or tables, it would seem new ideas for the humble door would be completely exhausted, and then along comes Austrian artist Klemens Torggler. This 4-panel entryway called the Evolution Door opens and closes in a surprisingly elegant way at the slightest touch, folding in on itself like pieces of paper. Torggler calls this system a “flip panel door” (Drehplattentür), and it’s almost more of a kinetic sculpture than functional door, but I would be happy to have one in every room of my house. And for those of you who envision a crushed finger or hands, he’s already solved that problem.
Currently the door is meant as a prototype, an extension of his artistic practice where Vienna-based Torggler has been creating similar kinetic doors for many years, several of which are available through Artelier Contemporary.
MY MIND IS BLOWN

Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics.
Second to last panel is totally me.
But I’ve found a few awesome comic niches, even if I did feel completely out of my element for a while.
