Hello, guys! My name is Tyler. I am a 16-year old high school student living on Long Island aspiring to become a proponent of the Progressive movement that DCS has inspired me to join rather than simply going along with the Democratic Party, which I have been clinging to my whole young life. Well, I first came across DCS's works when I was 14 years old. I had just appeared in Newsday as a voice against the bullying I had been receiving up to that point in my time in school. A few months after the article, I was Googling myself and I came across a woman who was comparing my situation with a series of Ozy and Millie strips from March and May 1999 dealing with Ozy's bullying problems with Jeremy. I was so intrigued by the strips that I sent them to nearly everybody I know and have since become a close follower of the strip. However, it was only recently that I discovered "I Drew This," which is the one of DCS's works that REALLY speak to me and my beliefs. So, this is why I'm on here! ^^

BTW, here is the article if anybody wishes to take a look at it. Keep in mind, the picture is misleading given the fact that it was nearly 2 years ago. lol ^^:
