    Biography

    Allie Brosh became well-known after launching her webcomic, Hyperbole and a Half, in 2009 while procrastinating on studying for a physics exam. The blog retells episodes of her life in a dramatic, hyperbolical fashion, prominently featuring her two dogs and her family. Some of the panels have been used as memes, notably an image showing herself holding a broom, while exclaiming "CLEAN ALL THE THINGS!". The webcomic is drawn in Paintbrush on a graphics tablet and purposefully utilizes a very crude and simplistic style, "because shitty drawings are funny. I do work very hard on making my drawings exactly the way they are. Sometimes I revise one drawing over ten different times. It's a very precise crudeness." Brosh explained that her creative process usually starts with coming up with ideas while showering or running or, when struggling with creativity, by using a random word generator. In the following days she works on remembering the details of the story (or asking family about them) and writing an outline, before actually writing and drawing a post, which again can take up to two weeks. Allie Brosh spent her early childhood in California, before she moved to Idaho with her family at age 7. She attended University of Montana and graduated with a bachelor's degree in human biology. In October 2010, Brosh relocated to Bend, Oregon and in December 2012 married Duncan Hendrick, whom she had been dating since 2005. Brosh has been suffering from social anxiety and even depression. She related an account of her depression on Hyperbole and a Half in October 2011, which has been praised by some psychologists and experts as one of the best contemporary portraits of the condition. Fans suffering from the same condition have also described it as "the most relatable portrayal they'd ever seen of their own experiences". Her first book, "Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened", was published on 29th October 2013. A sequel, "Solutions and Other Problems", was originally announced for publication in 2016, but has since been postponed indefinitely.
