Teenage Relationships


Teenage relationships are weird. They don’t seem to work in the same timeframe as every other relationship on the planet. The calendar of “What it really is” has a four-month anniversary marked, and the second panel of “What it feels like” features an old married couple. My goal for this cartoon was to depict how four months of a teenage relationship in high school seems like 40 years of being married. After just four months, it seems like teenagers are an old married couple, rather than just kids.
