Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

ALOT ~ a Blog Article by Allie Brosh

About a year ago I was introduced to the brilliance of modern blog philosopher Allie Brosh. Her articles and drawings on her Hyperbole and a Half.blogspot are high-art, insightful observations on life, pets, people and the human condition. A comic book for adults. The little dog stories usually have me dribbling my milk.

And she covers serious issues. In an unforgettable, first-person account of depression she describes the vast alone-NESS of someone in the gray cloud. For those interested in depression, yes, there are those out there, Allie has written an extremely moving diary of her own battles with the monster.

However, while my favorites are her little dog stories, I found that I was gagging with laughter when I read her ALOT. She really brought home the common mistake so many make, myself included. 

There are so many posting that it would be hard to choose the ultimate sample but I particularly enjoyed this presentation of her work and want to pass it on.

She reminds me a bit of Carlin with a crayon. A witty-smart artist who will put your senses through every emotion while drawing a cool story out of the stuff of an everyday. 

Here is Allie – I hope you like her ALOT.
