My boyfriend and I have been in a long distance relationship for 3 years now.

I decided to capture what it’s like to be in a long distance relationship for us through drawings. My style of illustration was inspired by British Illustrator Philippa Rice’s comic “Soppy”.

Being in love with someone who is far away can be tough. But when you know that you are with the one, even the toughest times are worth it. Being in a long distance relationship means…

More info:

Contantly missing your loved one

Birthdays and holidays are especially hard

Poor internet connection drives you insane on the regular

But you know it’s worth it, because talking to them makes your day

Sometimes, random things trigger up memories of them that make you smile (or cry…)

Flying out to see each other is not always easy

But when you manage to put together a plan, it’s the most exciting thing in the world!

Counting down the days becomes your favourite activity and gives you a daily jolt of happiness

The day you get to go to the airport is the best day ever!

When you finally see that specially someone, no words can describe your joy!

Having been apart makes you appreciate every moment you have together

Everything is so comfortable that sometimes it feels like you were never apart

The night before they have to leave again is the toughest…

But it’s ok because you know that distance means so little when someone means so much

Until you see each other again soon!
