Twenty-four-year-old artist Tunlaya Dunnvatanachit, who goes by Tuna Dunn online, knows just how complicated romantic feelings can be. To name a few, there's the anxiety you get from talking to someone you're crushing on, the comfort of being in a loving relationship, and the painful heartbreak you feel when a relationship ends. The Bangkok-based visual designer and illustrator portrays some of the romantic and challenging aspects of dating in her comics.
"I just feel like portraying reality comes more natural to me. Dealing with the painful side of relationships is very common. Everyone knows it's true," she told A Plus. "I've learned that people like love stories and it's a very relatable subject. We all share the same emotions. I also learned that people leans toward heartbroken ones more."
Dunn is expanding her work to be more than just comic strips and hopes to explore more ways to create meaningful artworks. She's been working on gifs that explore relatable everyday moments as well as love and rejection.
