At the Heart of it All

Immelmann is an incredible artist.

For those of you who don't know, Immy is a webcomic artist. He's famous for his webcomic Concession, which has been online since July 2006.

He also does another, more personal webcomic, called At The Heart Of It All. This comic is more like a tour of Immy's mind; comics focus on his hopes, dreams, fears, and insecurities.

The two more recent updates to this comic are truly amazing. You must see for yourself.

May 4, 2008 - Screens.

"Screens", by itself, is an inspirational strip enough. Surrounded by countless screens, Immy sits quietly in a chair, watching the nature outside. It's depressing how the modern world keeps you bottled up inside, isn't it?

May 11 - Deterioration

It's the same image, but...everything's deteriorated. The screens surrounding the artist are smashed, and Immy sits in the center, still looking out, now with an IV on his weakened and frail body, and numbers are scratched on the walls.

May 18 - Escape.

The stunning conclusion. Immy breaks from his hole and escapes into the night.

These comics are really powerful stuff. We work so hard in our daily lives that we forget to enjoy the world. We turn our homes, our offices, our classrooms, into nothing but miniature prisons, and forget how to return to nature and enjoy the ride of life.

After I first saw these, I went outside, and watched the sun set.
