My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid. She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’ So like, don’t do this.
And then there are people like me (and I assume many others on here) who learned a foreign language mostly on the internet and through books. There are still so many words that I use regularily and yet I have no real clue how you pronounce them.
So here are the three pieces I finished for Toronto Comicon this past Sunday! I’m really happy with the way they turned out and they were a big hit! It’s so amazing to go to cons and meet so many people who love the same things you do as much (if not more!) than you do! <3 Stay tuned - I will be finishing a much bigger who piece to debut in the New Year!
