Annotated Bibliography 8: Hyperbole and a Half.

Hyperbole and a Half

This blog was run by a woman named Allie Brosh that became fairly popular after a few relatable comics in 2011. The blog was created in 2009 when the Creator decided to depict her life events in a humorous way. The blog/comic website gained a huge of popularity after she made a comic depicting too much enthusiasm over cleaning. The image was then turned into an internet meme causing Brosh’s comics to skyrocket in popularity. Brosh’s last comic that she made was one labeled Menace. This comic depicts Brosh as a child wearing a dinosaur costume. She then describes how when she wore the costume it empowered her to do things she wouldn’t normally do without it on, basically she did the things that she wanted to do without worrying about the consequences. The blog has been inactive since 2013.

The credibility of this source is somewhat questionable because the blog’s last post was in 2013 however, the comics depicted are based on real life events in Brosh’s life. I believe that this source is credible but others may not feel the same way.

I believe that this will work well as a artist/designer/blog source for my Isearch paper. At the beginning of the year I attempted to make a comic but I had to put it aside whenever my grades began to suffer in turn. I decided that I would research about a successful professional comic and see how Brosh made her comic so successful. It helped me realize that the way to a successful comic is consistency and to have time to work on it. Brosh may not be a good example of the later noting how her blog/comic has been inactive since 2013.
