10 Illustrations That Nail What it Means to Be an Introvert

“I love being alone. Together.”

Being an introvert can be difficult. The need to be alone can be off-putting or come across as shyness when in fact it is just the way some people interact with the world.

Artist Aaron Caycedo-Kimura knows all about being an introvert, and after going through an artistic “dry spell” he decided to use his experience to create comics that show what the need for solitude feels like. “I was looking for a different medium to explore,” Caycedo-Kimura told GOOD. “At the same time, I was thinking about how difficult it was for me growing up as an introvert and specifically as an INFJ (one of the 16 Myers-Briggs types). I wanted to encourage and validate others like me, especially younger introverts and INFJs who may feel out of place in this world.”

The result is a collection of cartoons that perfectly capture the daily highs and lows of being an introvert.
