Yay I finally got to color this! I saved in progress shots, was going to try to make a gif, but I need to figure out how exactly to do that. So anyways, just a drawing about new friends. This drawing makes me think about the performative stiffness I go through when trying to interact with a new person in my life. I love people and making deep connections with them. However, something about those initial phases are a lot of work. I know for myself I tend to feel awkward, stand-offish, and worked up. I especially freak out when I am invited to a new friend’s space. Thankfully, after a few tries
and a couple of drinksI usually wind up making a wonderful friend. It’s not you - it’s me.
