I wrote about how an extroverted character in my graphic novel becomes an introvert. That character is Beverly. Of all the transformations these characters go through, I find Beverly’s transformation arresting–perhaps more beautiful than watching June come out of her shell. I asked my artist, Juan, to draw an image of Beverly uprooting a flower and being moved to tears.
I find his illustration exquisite and touching when juxtaposed with the story. Out of context, it’s kind of hysterical in a Roy Lichtenstein way!
Below is a TED talk by Susan Cain, who is educating the world about introverts and how they work. Here’s to helping the world find balance, sanity, and guiltless introspection!
