Who is Awkward Girl? Well, for one, she admires her own strangeness.
Awkward Girl is a comic. The concept was originally created by Erica Lescota, artist and true talent. Lanaya Alexander, a managing editor for GUA and also a writer, teamed up with Erica to make Awkward Girl finally come alive. This is Erica’s brain baby, so to speak, and the goal is to create a character that exposes the realness of life–life is confusing, freaky, awkward, and above all, beautiful. While Awkward Girl is fictional, it’s goal is to tackle life on a relatable level. It is going to make you think and laugh and maybe even cringe, but most importantly, through the character’s perspective, its hope is that we all gain a better understanding of ourselves and of how we exist. Because don’t we all just want to be understood?
