About the comic series

Expat Gone Foreign is a comic series about a linguist settling abroad; a graphic journey through culture clashes, social awkwardness, language phenomena and life itself.

It began as a humorous graphic diary to keep my family and friends up-to-date on my happenstances across the continent: linguistic misunderstandings, cultural discoveries and the rigors of everyday life. In a short time and for reasons that still escape my mind, a bunch of people all over the Internet had joined the melee.

I loooove drawing. Since Expat Gone Foreign set sail in 2014, I’ve enjoyed cartoonizing my daily adventures and sharing them with you, and I intend to keep doing so. However, time is money and money buys art supplies.
