An Alternative to Talking…

Sun Draw

I have a special affinity to this strip. It’s completely based on life. Not because this particular incident happened, but because it could have.

Growing up, I was very shy. My main form of communication was doodling. Kids always asked me to draw something for them and I was always happy to oblige. I felt like I was able to somehow share a part of myself without having to say a word.

And this still holds true. I’m no longer so reserved, nor do I have time to give away drawings on the spot, but I do try to extend myself through the strip –in my shyer moments it helps to convey my thoughts on paper. Who knew humor could play such a connecting role?
