A story about the following:

and generally “making it”

Original sketch + story:

I don’t fully remember how I got to this specific drawing but it definitely came from a place of nostalgia for our (our referring to Greg and I) February NYC visit, generally devestating heartbreak upon being kicked off campus in March and losing our original opportunities to be in NYC in summer. After relocating I found myself drawing crying portraits repeatedly while reminiscing with Greg, who I remember at one point was in his underwear while developing film in his bathtub on our video call. I was (am?) also obsessing over a Google Maps photo from a public pool in Sacramento.
