Houts said hier dating illustrations are “very much” drawn from individual practices.

“I used to go on marathon weeks of dating where I’d be meeting people three or four days a week. It wasgoed sort of emotionally tiresome,” the Brooklyn-based artist told The Huffington Postbode. “While I’ve never punched myself ter the face to get out of a date like one of my characters has, I’ve undoubtedly fantasized about it during the course of a bad one.”

Collectively, Houts’ dating illustrations remind us of Carrie Bradshaw, if the “Sex and the City” protagonist had a much darker sense of humor and a Tinder account. (Of course, Carrie would hate Tinder, but damn, think of all the material she’d get out of it for hier katern.)

However Houts herself is no longer single ? “The fierce gods of Tinder eventually determined that I had suffered enough and smiled upon mij,” she joked ? she’s still drawing about love, relationships and dating.

“The truth is, I’m a pretty pathetic dater. I just attempt to find the humor ter dates,” she said.
