I'm allowed to drive a car, I can legally drink, I even rent my own house but I still haven't figured out this thing 'adulthood'.

My name is Marloes De Vries and I'm a Dutch illustrator and writer of picture books, comics and other things that contain both words and pictures. I've been drawing since I was young, mainly to understand my own feelings and thoughts. Not much has changed since then!

Nowadays, at 14, you're in school and crushing on some random celebrity, but in the 1600s you died in childbirth

The problem with reading these comics is that once I'm actually back in this situation I think about how everyone does it too, so I might as well finish off the bar... and go back to the store to get another one to "save for later"

That has happened to me, only its usually when the handyman is coming to fix something in my apartment, then I have to awkwardly smile like I wasn't just dropping a deuce and that's why it stinks!

Your Instagram was probably too boring for her taste, but as such is subjective she didn't message you about it.
