The Balancing Act of the Real World and Creating Webcomics

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, July 21, 2014



My personality appears extroverted in the right social situations when I am surrounded by like-minded people, however I know deep down that I am truly an introvert because I recharge when I am by myself and drawing.
