~Long Hallway, by Paul R

“This is a sketch I made when I was in middle school. During recess, I often sat at the edge of the playground and drew because I struggled to fit in with my classmates and was tormented by name-calling and other forms of bullying. I was much taller than everyone else, uncoordinated, and more effeminate than a boy was supposed to be. This sketch shows how intimidating it could be just to make it down one of the long hallways in my school building, trying to slip through unscathed.”
