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.

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.
Find Gemma on Tumblr or follow her on Instagram @gemmacorrell.
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.

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.
