Relationships are beautiful, from the big marquee moments to the little every day notes shared between two people who can't imagine life without the other.
Meet Robin and Julien, two young men whose pastel-colored love comes to us courtesy of Australian illustrator Wonsun Jin, and whose adorable canoodlefest is a sweetly accurate portrayal of an LGBTQ relationship. Robin is a slight, indoorsy kid with a natural shyness – but a fierce protective instinct; Julien is a ripped seafoam-haired hulk who cannot wait to get married. Together, they have a delightful daily mosaic that feels like a real partnership.
They may be young, but they have a history together.
