  1. I hear you on this one. It’s not that I don’t like other people (although to be honest I’m not sure I’m the same species, exactly), it’s the constant fear of being thought ill of, saying something stupid, generally not knowing how to behave, that makes it just way more comfortable to avoid human contact as much as possible. Wrong planet, I think. Your art is amazing. Thank you for this post, which Kat reblogged and that’s how I found you.
