Awkward life is a tiny comic I started writing when I was working as a long-term substitute at a Technical High school near me. This happened to overlap a time in my life when I had just entered the dating pool again after a long relationship.
Watching High School Kids interact with each other in the day - while trying to remember how to socialize like a normal person at night - made me realize just how many awkward moments there are in mine. So I started writing them down and then re-telling them through a series of awkward rodent characters from my sketch book studies.
The result was #awkwardlife. (The original comics are all available as zines in the Ugly Apparel store. All blog posts featuring comics in this series are tagged #awkwardlife. )
I am really looking forward to getting back to drawing this one.
