How to Exist for a Day by MumblingIdiot How to Exist for a Day by MumblingIdiot
This comic appears in Secret Prison 2.

My sister says this says too much about my life and is quite upsetting. However, I kind of meant it to be a broader take on how bizarre and hopeless the shit we do is.

~Olivieree says, "This work is exceptional for it's harsh sincerity and simplicity. It should be a mirror to people´s lives, to how we live every day without even trying to change it. People should look at the picture and think, think very hard about their lives and chances that were given to them to change it.
To make their lives... exceptional. Not just a must-do-before-I-die."

How to Exist for a Day by ~MumblingIdiot is well told and visually striking. It's one of many amazing pieces in this talented deviant's gallery.

I think we all can agree that this is a majority of our lives, if not all.

Hey, I've been a silent observer of your works for a while. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your art, especially this piece. I think this work inspires me especially because it convinces me that I can't handle a typical lifestyle. 
Your work is immeasurably unique, in both style and a sort of aggressive introverted-ness. I love how you appeal to those awkward unspoken fuzzy grey lines of being a person that everyone social seems to be able to navigate seamlessly. 
Anywho. Just wanted to drop you a line and congratulate you on your upcoming TV work. Have an excellent day.

Except for the missing artist and videogamer panels, this sums it up pretty well.

Well done.

This is by far one of the best non-genre comics I've ever seen. Absolutely stunning

awesome work with the positive-negitive coloring

I want to dislike this. For its brutal honesty, for its sheer eloquence in illustrating in black and white (literally and figuratively) the pantomime of our sadly eked out existence and how most of the slings and arrows we endure we shoot at ourselves.
But instead I love this for those very same reasons.
