What Life is Like After a Breakup Illustrated in Comics

image


California-based video game director Brandon Sheffield used his breakup as inspiration for his comic strips, which reveal the reality and struggles of a breakup. After a two-year relationship ended in 2014, he felt that a “very specific person-sized hole" invaded his life. He chronicles the loneliness and awkwardness of accidentally thinking about a former lover and the nostalgia it brings.

“I noticed there were certain patterns to the way I felt and sort of rolled around through my days,” Sheffield told HuffPost. “But I also realized that even though my emotional wounds were specific to me, the way I was acting was very similar to what I’d seen friends go through.”

Realizing how universal his routine was, Sheffield asked his friend, New York-based illustrator Dami Lee, to turn the stories into comic strips – a project they’d eventually call No Girlfriend Comics.

“She added bits of herself here and there, which I think made the comic more relatable and not just for dudes,” Sheffield said of his collaboration with Lee, who was living in Seoul, Korea at the time.
