awkward conversations #38



this would usually happen on facebook.

Really, people

Look... I admit, once my webcomic got famous, I was anticipating fame and fortune and I guess potential models are going to show up at my house. But please! How unprofessional is this???



I mean, he's not even smart enough to pull his fingers in.
And when I opened the case??



Yeesh!

I'll admit... they're good. I look forward to presenting some strips with them as stars. But I can't have models showing up demanding a go.

Really, people.

step 1: gauge the level of giveafuck in the room.
step 2: decide whether it's worth saying out loud.

awkward conversations #33



preface your one night stands.
i recommend something along the lines of:
'we'll never shop for groceries together. and i won't respect you in the morning.'
if all else fails, make sure they don't have your actual phone number.

after a breakup, you you go with honesty?
...either way, choose and stick with it.

awkward conversations #02



affection-starved, you lose every scrap of dignity.

awkward conversations #01



don't lie, don't swap numbers, don't facebook each other.
just keep walking.

i always wanted to do a web comic

...but i can't draw. so a few weeks ago i started taking photos, and awkward conversations was born.
to my gleeful surprise, people look at it, like it and email me about it. so i thought i'd give it a more permanent home than flickr.
hope you like it - and hope you comment, pass it on and tell others!

yours in awkwardness
