Spring cleaning always gets the best of me. I don't know what it is. Every time I sit down to start a spring cleaning endeavor, I am determined to clear out my closet, our bedroom, the spare rooms, everything of all the junk that has accumulated in the past year. And...

. . . a web comic by [email protected]

Tripping over life and pretending it is on purpose.

Welcome to my little web comic. If you are a glutton for punishment repeat visitor – glad to have you back! Otherwise, if you’ve never been here before – thanks for coming!

So what exactly is Socially Awkward?

First, I thought it would be fun to create a visual representation of fun little moments in my life. Second, I wanted to push myself to find the humor in small things in my life – mainly as an exercise to help with my anxiety. You know… focus on small things instead of getting overwhelmed by the big picture.

I’ll be honest. I have a hard time creating humor. I appreciate funny things but I’ve never thought of myself (or my life) as particularly hilarious. Through this little exercise, however, I’ve found out that lots of those fun little moments in my life are fun, funny, and worth sharing. Those moments really seem to resonate with people, so I’ve decided to keep up the project and continue my comic.

You will notice that my style has changed since the inception of this web comic. That is because, as an artist, I am continually growing and expanding my skill set. I appreciate your patience as I find my groove and settle on a design for Socially Awkward that I think best represents the content of this series and my own artistic style.

I always appreciate feedback and comments from my followers – so if you see something you like or dislike, please let me know! I’ll definitely take it into consideration.

But, enough rambling from me. Enjoy the comic!
