All by myself

You’ve all had to wait so long for a new Happysad drawing, so I’ve decided to give you a whole bunch at once:

allbymyself_sml (clicky)

As usual, you can interpret it however you like. But I drew it wishing to express what it can feel like when you’re single and you get the overwhelming feeling that everyone else around you is living happy social lives, full of romance and love. And there you are, stuck in the middle, heart the size of an elephant, shut out & isolated… One big illusion, no doubt, but a very powerful one nonetheless.

Just wanted to say hi to people like Rita, boodie, Bogusz, Sadaf and jom_ina.loo and all the others who keep returning here every now and then, and let you all know that I’m doing well. Thank you for your kind words. I hope this comic can provide a little relief, if only temporarily.

Alright already

Just this one then

My mom found a drawing I made when I was about 12.

I thought it deserved a little update :-)  (click to embiggen)
