Illustration: Pandemic Fatigue

The fall season is beautiful, but lonely. We all have things we are struggling with during this epic pandemic election year. This is one of mine. If you understand the feeling, I hope it provides some relief. 

Thanks for continuing to read along in these days of uncertainty and limbo.

Introvert Groceries

New sketchbook comic about self-checkout stations and the ghost of social anxiety past. 

Cartoon text: When I was younger, even basic social interactions would make me nervous. I've gotten better with practice, but I would've loved self-checkout stations back then, especially if it meant I could avoid any added social stress. 

I don't know if self-checkout is good for humanity or my social skills, but it is a tiny bit fun to "beep" my groceries.

Thanks for reading and supporting if you can.

Anxiety Aura

This is what my anxiety aura looks like today. Just getting through the week will be enough.

Early voting in NY starts next week, so I'll do that too.

Thanks for continuing to read along. I'm hard at work writing, so I'm posting less, but might share more process content in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

Single Girl, Emotional Check-in

Not as whiny, but no less feisty. 

I feel like I've been holding my breath this entire pandemic-election year. This cartoon scene sort of feels like it's in limbo too. 

I'm still drawing everyday, which keeps me going when so many things in life are uncertain.

Thanks for following along
