Hey there blog! How you doin’? I sincerely hope all is well with you and this entry finds you in good health.
Now that we’ve gotten the small talk out of the way, let’s move on to more important issues, shall we?
I’m quite thrilled to announce that I’ve made considerable progress on this site. Where before you would see a giant “ERROR” message when you navigated to imawkward.com, now you see a delightful cartoon as a spaceholder. These two characters will be the main characters in my upcoming cartoon strip.
The female is based on me. She is the character on the left. Bright-eyed, innocent, and friendly, she will be the source of mild entertainment as she faces encounters of the – you guessed it – awkward kind! The other character originally started out as a male paradigm. But then, I told my boyfriend the other character was him, because he looked bored. I said, “Looky here! This is me, and this is…You!!!” I poked him on the nose endearingly.
His indifference turned to excitement. “Awww! That’s me?!” he gushed.
“Yes!” I gushed back. He was so happy and easy to entertain. We are so good together.
What was I saying? Oh yes, through these characters I will create a personal microcosm that will address issues of great importance like my coming-of-age experiences, my work experiences, my school experiences, and my food choices. Yes, I’ve made this site even more shamelessly self-aggrandizing, but at least I’m using pictures to do it now. This shows creativity dexterity.
