Virtual Reality: Isolation

For the fourth illustration in my column, I chose to depict my protagonist avoiding plans with his friend because he would rather play video games. This is a situation that I can relate to the most, and it’s the one that inspired me to make this column. Something new that I tried with this illustration was the addition of text bubbles. I felt that they were necessary in order to convey the situation clearly to the reader. At the same time, I feel like the text bubbles are somewhat of an eye-sore, given that my handwriting isn’t the best. But overall, this is the illustration I’m most happy with in my column.
