Expressing love and gratitude towards your long-term partner can be hard. But we all know it's important to let your partner how much you appreciate them. I started drawing comics for my boyfriend, now husband, when we first started dating. I didn't like saying cheesy things so drawing comics was my way of showing him I cared. I've portrayed myself as a bunny, Ju, and my husband a monkey, Ja, because he has long lanky arms.
I illustrate little moments of our lives together, the moments that make me laugh, make me cry, make my heart feel full. By doing so, it allows me to reflect our life together and appreciate the small, but special times we share.
I started posting my comics on Instagram and Facebook and it brings me so much joy to see others share them with their significant others. If I can make someone smile with my comic every day, it's worth all the effort I put into making them.
