Here's the thing, women spend their entire lives being told they get ahead on their looks & at the same time are told we're not good looking enough...for whatever. I draw comic books, no one gives a rat's ass what I look like. I spend most of my life at a drawing board.

You have seven followers. I have a pile of awards and bestsellers. You can use Google. And I can block you. If you're the other beauty contestant, I win. We already know I won the talent contest.

I tweeted something droll about Kanye, and I realized you, my followers, deserve better, and I need to stay off this hellsite, so I deleted it and I am going back to work on this graphic novel, which you will love when it's finished. Good night, and focus on higher things.

@ColleenDoran Met him at my 2nd Con back in 08. He was hanging with Dan Didio and it was a riot, Dan was outrageously funny and Keith's dry wit was a treat. They could taken that act on the road and make a fortune 😭 I still have a picture of both. Ah.... that's not me in the middle 😏Wlh

Keith Giffen really enjoys an afternoon tea (you'd never know from this pic, he hates smiling in pics). We went to the @StRegisDC for tea in Washington DC and he loved it. St Regis has the best house blend, BTW. Hey, St Regis, the creator of Rocket Racoon is in da house!

Id like to screen shot all your kind comments so I can send to Keith, he's not on social media.

One of the best people I've ever known, crazy, wildly creative, smart as all get out, kind, no-nonsense about work supportive. Offered me my first big time tryout in comics when I was 17. I love this guy. twitter.com/BoughtThatComi…

I figured out, a bit late, that I need the time and resources to make art just for me and not have all my projects be contracted work. It makes a huge difference in my mental health and my creative stamina.

There's a power that comes from not saying everything you think or dishing on every person who's done you a bad deal, and I'm content to use that power right now.
America has lost a great American hero. 97 year old Korean War veteran,Medal of Honor recipient Hiroshi "Hershey" Miyamura. My heart goes out to Hershey's family. Sir, it was a great honor to know you. Thank you for your amazing service to our country. R.I.P. my friend. God bless

Ukrainian doctors are saving lives and performing complex surgeries by flashlight. @StationCDRKelly heard this firsthand, as he visited the Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital. He talked with the young patients and their doctors👇�#united242Jd

An amazing true story of Naval Aviators Jesse Brown & Medal of Honor recipient Tom Hudner.I had the honor of knowing Tom & his devotion to telling the story of his dear friend Jesse was always front & center. Jonathan Majors & Glen Powell are wonderful as these American heroes. twitter.com/DevotionMovie/…

My limited edition copy of the 30th anniversary of @toriamos’s Little Earthquakes with the cover by @ColleenDoran is here - it is absolutely stunning! I cried happy tears. I’ve loved Tori for 30 years and I have no words to convey how happy I am today.

A loving parent looking for a delightful introduction to comics for their little ones couldn't do better than this, the absolutely charming I AM BATMAN by @bradmeltzer and @ChrisEliopoulis Ask for it at your local bookstore/comic shop or order online! buff.ly/3AL9bfZ
My cover art for the TORI AMOS COMIC BOOK TATTOO graphic novel, exclusive comic shop edition from @Z2comics Ask for it at your local comic shop, limited to only 2000 copies!
My art will be here, news about my books will be here, and I'll post via an assistant when I want to rec something. My silence means more art. And I'm posting all this to hold myself to it. I know you'll be watching. Anyway, I'm out. And I leave you with this. Love you all.
Maybe more resilient, smarter people than me can handle this constant stress and still be productive, but I'm just burnt. I'm done. I want to make art more than I want to talk, and if I want to know what's going on, I can watch the news twice a day like a normal person.
Social media is designed to ratchet up drama, conflict, and to tweak every trigger we've got. It's addictive. It serves a purpose to get the word out about our art or ideas, but it also exploits, making bank off our efforts while turning us into conflict generators.
Yes, it is a binary choice. Every minute I tweeted or posted or tooted...art didn't get made. I got books & pictures to make. Handing everything over to my assistant. Art will be posted. Book info will be posted. But I will be making art. So find me in my work. Where I belong.
Lookatthis, commentonthis, speakoutonthis, art death by sound bite. You can talk to me at my Patreon. I won't be talking anywhere else for awhile. Twitter is not a hill I want to die on. No social media platform is worth dying on. patreon.com/ColleenDoran
