Are people outside of Hawaii interested in what life living and growing up here is like from a local perspective?
I look at strips like Octopus Pie where the setting is very New York/Brooklyn and you can feel the area the characters live in by how they interact and speak. In many ways, it's very foreign to me - perhaps I'm just very sheltered and am a bit intimidated by such a lifestyle. On a global scale, I think people can easily understand and relate to those areas - based on Hollywood stereotypes alone. Whereas, something like Hawaiian pidgin and customs just aren't commonplace anywhere else but here.
