Secluded, Wordless Comic
pencil & pastel & ink
In the final of narrative words and picture class, I illustrated a short wordless comic about Hikikomori (secluded people). Due to their fear of the constant bullying of their family, campus and society from the outside world, The safety of their houses is the only place they can exist in the world. Perhaps they were brave enough to leave their homes in hopes of kindness and tolerance; however they received indifference and disgust. I hope that everyone can understand these people, and not rebuke them for their fear and laziness.
