Hi, I'm Smila, and I've wanted to be an artist ever since I was little. Making this sketchbook was a long and difficult process–this was my first ever attempt at a comic longer than 4 panels! As a 15 year old artist, I still have a lot to learn, but this comic taught me so much about art and I have never been so confident in my decision to be an artist. The idea for this comic came from my daily commute to school; I live in Chicago, and take multiple buses to get to my high school in the heart of the city. For this comic, I wanted to turn the concept of "love at first sight" into a bittersweet moment, stretching out one meeting into the length of an entire comic.
