[MindBound]: Prologue by l3onnie [MindBound]: Prologue by l3onnie
Thank you for taking time to read this comic! MindBound is a personal project that aims to raise environmental awareness through the weird and unexpected adventure of an imaginative girl.

Karen is a shy university 2nd year student with vivid imaginations who wishes to change people to protect the deteriorating environment, but doesn't know how. Feeling terrible, Karen's frustration doubles as a boy dressed in plastic bags popped up in her imagination. Soon she learns that the boy is a messenger on a mission that leads Karen to realize the power of her imagination and create actual changes in the world.

__________________________________________________

Hello everyone!

For my 2014 new year resolution, I've decided to launch a personal art project based on some of my causes. I'm deeply concerned with the condition of the world we are currently living in. Watching the news about extreme climate conditions, pollution and energy problems happening all over the world, I couldn't help but feel like the film " The Day After Tomorrow" is slowly coming true. I studied geography before I went into art school, along with books that I've read, I learn that our actions all directly or indirectly affect the environment. This project is partly inspired by the amazing artworks and comics on DA that carry meaningful messages. I truly hope to spread the message through my art and make our planet a better place. :)

(edit) Thank you for all the support and feedback! I never expected it would receive such attention, and I'm very thankful about it. I will keep working on the story and pages of MindBound.

I really like it but maybe (and maybe you already planned on doing this more) it would be better to show just what these same values and geared toward the same thing is a bit more. Not completely necessary since you've done such a fabulous job anyway. Your selecting of what to show at what time is awe inspiring. I wish I was a pro so that this comment would mean more but *shrug* I'm not.

Your characters and story look so well developed that I can't help but want to dive on in! It makes me wonder what you do at your day job. So I can follow you professionally and on DA

There is a lot to raise awareness about, and it can be daunting. Since there is so much, does it make sense to pick one thing to focus on and do you best in dealing with that one issue?

I think it's absolutly amazing! The art and the story!
Listen, i'm a film student, and I need to film a short story to my class. 
My usuall partner (the dude who writes the script) has a writing block, and I think it would be awesome if you would let me permission to film that story!
I would do some changes, so it would fit into the limited time I have, but I would like to credot you.
Can you please PM me if you agree or not!
Thank you!

This is really touching...and astonishing.
How many times had we forgotten our voice, and forgotten who we really are?
We're born to be free.*

p.s. Would like to ask that could I translate it into Traditional Chinese and shared it with your original website and author name given at the same time OwO? (If there hadn't have any angels done so.)

May you have a nice dream and find it true the next morning...*

Thank you for your offer! That's very nice of you -- I'd probably hand it over to you if you had asked sooner. XD

I made a Traditional Chinese version and released it together with the English version on my Plurk: www.plurk.com/p/jlhww8

You are more than welcomed to share it along with my website. :) Thanks again!

Thanks! Could be a metaphor? More revealed later :p

It's also a reference from an infamous incident in Hong Kong in 2003 during the SARS epidemic. During that period of time, everyone had to wear masks and everyone looked pretty much the same. It left a rather deep impression in my memories.

Such a nice start of a possible series! I like the setting... may be a mix of a little drama, lonelyness (yet surrounded by countless others) and pointing to issues of our society and consumerism. And the drawing is good too, of course ;-)

Wow! I enjoyed this thoroughly! Even just this little snippet speaks nothing but the truth! I'm anticipating the next piece, I wish you good luck in the making of this project! I agree on your view of this world, not only about the poor condition of this planet but also the state society is in. "Be the change you want to see in the world," they say. Yet the second you step out of line, you become an outlier. You go! I can't wait to read the next part to this!
