4 Artists Who Totally Capture What It's Like To Be An Introvert

It takes one to draw one.

The artists who can best illustrate what it's really like to be an introvert are the ones who are introverts themselves. If you're an introvert like I am, these cartoonists and illustrators' spot-on depictions will make you say "Yaaassss!" followed by a double-tap on IG, and if you’re an extrovert, then perhaps these comics will shed more light on our reserved personalities... and why we always go missing at house parties.

1. Maureen "Marzi" Wilson

When artist Marzi started sharing her "Introvert Doodles" on Instagram just to express how she was feeling, she was surprised that her artwork resonated with so many people. "I'm not the only introvert trying to find [my] place in an extroverted world," Marzi said.

2. Gemma Correll

You've probably seen British illustrator (and loud and proud introvert) Gemma Correll’s adorable artwork on Instagram or elsewhere—when she’s not drawing what it’s like to be an introvert, she illustrates a glorious assortment of pugs and puns, among other things.

3. Debbie Tung

UK-based Debbie Tung has a day job as a computer programmer, but draws in her sketchbook as often as she can. Her watercolor renditions of the introvert life are beautiful, with dark palettes that match an introvert’s deep, mysterious soul.

4. INFJoe

American artist Aaron Caycedo-Kimura, a.k.a. INFJoe, created the eponymous cartoon to encourage his fellow INFJs—they happen to be the rarest Myers-Briggs personality type—and let them know they are not alone.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
