I drew the majority of these little ditties over 5 years ago. At the time, they were meant as little more than “nice things to look at” for a handful of people I knew and cared about. The characters didn’t represent anyone in particular, but all people. Looking back however, it seems the overall story becomes that of myself; an aging child finding comfort in loneliness by deepening himself in his own imagination, enjoying the world’s natural beauties, and playing Frisbee. The last image is a depiction of the night I first lied next to the person who eventually became my girlfriend. Having someone to depend on, my therapeutic scribblings were no longer necessary, and I stopped drawing them. Still being fond of how they turned out, I moved them to this site.
I’m going to draw a few more over the next few months, with the original intention restored: they will look kind of nice. I have a few ideas for images, words and phrases, and a 3 year old haiku written on a torn piece of a pizza box. If anyone would like me to do for them a thing, send me a message or an ask and I’ll try my best to work it into my emotionless barren world. Anonymous is fine too, but keep in mind I won’t be responding to anything publicly.
Thank you for the 8 notes. Fingers crossed that I total 16 after the next 700 days.
