Secluded, Wordless Comic
pencil & pastel & ink
For the final of narrative words and picture class, I drew a short wordless comic about hikikomori(secluded people). Some hikikomori are afraid of contacting with the outside world because of chronic bullying from family, campus and society. They hide themselves in their houses who feeling that home is the only place they can exist in the world. They may have plucked up the courage to leave their homes, but instead of kindness and tolerance, they were given unfriendly indifference and disgust. I hope everybody can understand this crowd of people, but not just scold them for their escape and laziness.
