Very touching short, Gabe.
My parents divorced when I was 11 and my brother was 14. We were much more aware then, and it remains one of my most painful memories.
Thank you for talking about your experiences, even just a little bit. :)
The thing after the credits… what does it mean?
It just a plead to share and interact with the art you like. Basically, the more popular good things are, the more there will be in the world.
I think he means the blank spot ending in a door opening sound effect that follows.
Oh, that? That was a mistake.
I remember when my parents got divorced. I was in my start 20s befor it happend, but it was abut the same thing. It felt like they were happy and all that but I guess it was just a clever ruse. Now they’ve both found some one that is just perfect for then, and I’ve even gotten some step siblings :D
My parents divorced when I was 7, I didn’t really care that much and I got two houses. I thought it was a pretty sweet deal. Though I got to see both my parents and they’re amicable towards one another, so I suppose I had it good.
I also got some step-siblings out of this deal, more family is always good. :)
Also, Life in the Analogue Age is pretty cool it is surprising you can make something animated every week.
Oh, so I guess the dad we’ve known up to now was really the step-dad.
And hey, it’s a See and Say! Sweet.
The subtle cock-eyed / blank / what-happened? expression on his face at the end is perfect.
Pretty big downer of an ending, and then that ending pops on with it’s upbeat voice ‘hey if you enjoyed this, share it!’
Not saying people shouldn’t share this one, but maybe it could have went without the ad at the end.
Maybe you’re right, but people really don’t like to share. It’s just so easy now…
My brother divorced his wife a year after. She was pregnant and they quickly got married without thinking about it. Then my niece was born. Even after the divorce, she still wants more money, begging him, harassing him for it. What’s sad is, it is obvious my niece wasn’t aware of it.
Hold it…Gabe…you said your parents got divorced AFTER your little brother was born. And your little brother has black hair like your step dad…does that mean your mother had an affair?
Only my Mom knows for sure…kidding. No, my brother is DEFINITELY is the son of my biological father. Too similar sometimes…
Its rough when that happens when you’re a kid!
I’m so confused chronologically! In the earlier strips you and your brother seem much older and your parents are together still in the same house. Did he come back sometimes or is there some sort of historical revisionism going on here? :p
BTW, I just shared your series on my facebook wall so hopefully that’ll help give it some more attention.
Thank you so much!
My eyes teared up while watching this. My parents got divorced when I was 5 and it felt the same way. My parents seemed ok. A bit tense, yes, but I didn’t think they would end up apart. Then at some point dad was just no longer there…
My mom remarried a year later, though and he’s been my dad ever since. :D I connected so well, I never even thought of him as a step-father. He’s a terrific guy.
That’s pretty touching :( my parents never married, but they split when I was 2
My moms been through 3 relationships since then, the first guy was on/off for several years but never married, the second guy she married after a year or so with him and divorced around the time I was 12 or 13…
The last guy she was with since before the divorce(they separated long before it was finaled) and the marriage ended by his death last year
I think is has gotta be my favorite so far, though. It’s quite moving, and it being an animated one adds to the touchingness (:
Thank you everyone for your support. This one was very emotional for me. It was really was a bit of a struggle to complete because of the old feelings and memories it was bringing back. I was also weary of your response, but you are the best audience I could ask for, thank you all.
I hope you aren’t planning on ending this series any time soon. It’s one of the few things that has touched such a wide variety of emotions in me, and it must be really healthy expression for you. :)
No plans to end it anytime soon :)
Well, well. Officially everyone on the internet had their parents divorced. Interesting.
Mine…never really married. Free union is a strange thing.
I had just started high school when my parents got divorced. Even though I was older, I couldn’t grasp the concept that the one thing I thought was stable in my life, crumbled apart and was lost to me.
This made me cry, but because it was so moving. Thank you for making this :)
My parents divorced at three too. But unlike a major majority, i lived with my father. I thought it was weird so many people lived with their mothers until I was older. I am sure (not you) but a boy growing up without a father must be as equally troubling as a girl like me growing up without a mother.
Fortunately for me, my Mom remarried very quickly after the divorce, so my step-dad turned into my Dad.
