Sometimes, feelings between people are stronger than the distance that separates them. It all started when Italy-based digital artist Simone “Simz” Ferriero had fallen for a girl even though he hadn’t met her. “She saw me [streaming] on Twitch,” he told Bored Panda. “We then started to chat regularly.” After some time, however, he decided it wasn’t enough and booked an intercontinental flight to meet Krisi in real life. Ferriero has documented his unforgettable experience in a comic-diary, and it looks better than a Hollywood romance movie.
“I had a lot of stress while traveling alone,” Ferriero said. “But I was very determined.” It took a long time for Simone to become able to create such a compelling visual story, too. “I’ve loved drawing since I was a kid,” Ferriero said. “I have developed my passion throughout the years and when I was in my twenties I decided to study at the academy of fine arts. After graduation, I hopped around doing a few jobs here and there for a few of startup companies as a graphic designer for a while, but then I decided to embrace the path of a full-time freelancer.”

P.S. For all of you wondering, he’s 5’6″ and she’s 5’9″.
