This Happened Twice

This Happened Twice

by Melissa Lomax

Digital drawing, color

Inspiration: In this Doodle Town comic the reader catches Kitty Lolo (who is me) in a slightly awkward social moment. This event actually happened... twice with the same person! Writing and drawing about my real-life foibles can feel vulnerable, but it's also extremely liberating. Being able to laugh at myself allows me to feel more lighthearted, and embarrassing situations make great content for autobiographical comics!
