“Dark with good intentions. Although it is not rare to find some wholesome or introspective comics, you have to keep people guessing,” ToothyBj describes his comics. These well-drawn comics depict modern life struggles such as paying bills, doing homework, dealing with negative comments on social media, caring too much only about looks, or even seeing pineapples on pizza (we all know the never-ending discussion about that). All of these struggles are interpreted in a darkly humorous manner, making us see them from a different perspective and ask ourselves whether, maybe, they're not that bad? “We have to laugh about everything. The appreciation of nuance and context is getting lost in all spectrums. Machines determine what is and is not offensive on Instagram, Facebook, Youtube... it’s dystopian,” explains the artist. “What I say goes, goes. If it's too 'dark' or 'inappropriate' for Instagram, it goes on Twitter. If I feel that the joke is good, I can make it. It's therapeutic, really.”

Even though ToothyBj had some thoughts about creating comics in 2017, his artistic career started only in 2018 following a breakup. He says that his comics have changed over time and become more complex, which got a positive reaction from his 81.7k followers on his Instagram account. “The style might be rough, but it takes a good two hours if everything goes OK. It's a struggle to find time. Drawing is drawing. Sketching might be quick, but inking demands attention, then coloring, then (the worst) adapting it to different formats. At the beginning, everything was loose and quick, but it got more complex with time and people really responded to that. It amazes me to this day how much people liked this style and that gave me the courage to show my drawing account, which has more illustrative pursuits.”

A vegetarian friend introduced me to Pineapple and tomato. It sounds bizarre but it's good, and waaaayyyyyy less greasy then anything with meat. (As I get older, my body appreciates my consideration)

Most people here like pineapple pizza. Ether it's really good, or most people have been dropped on head... As I don't know anyone who has been dropped on head, but lots of people who likes pineapple pizza - I assume those dropped ones are the ones who don't like it.

Why many people dislike pineapple in pizza? I think it adds some sweetness to the mild sour taste of tomato sauce. I don't mind if someone ordered a Hawaiian pizza or just an ordinary Ham and cheese.

When asked how the artist comes up with ideas for his new comics, he says: “Whenever I see a funny recurrent daily situation, I think 'uhmm, that would make a relatable comic,' so I discard it because relatable humor is done to death and does not really carry a joke (in my opinion). I like absurdism, it’s amazing and comes out of nowhere. There’s no recipe for it, but maybe I can offer a piece of advice: always take notes, you won’t remember it later. I’m genuinely concerned that my memory is this bad. If I don’t write something down, it’s gone.”

“I've said this in the past, but I will repeat myself: English is a weird language. Someone draws or paints and people call him an artist instead of calling him a painter or a 'drawer' (is that even a thing?). An artist is a person who makes art. I'm not an artist, I'm a cartoonist at best. I think that the word gets thrown around so much it loses its value. That being said, my philosophy would be to make people laugh as often as possible, nothing deep,” he explains his philosophy as an artist.

“The community—I don’t wanna get all cheesy and stuff, but they are amazing. It has reached the point that it's actually like telling jokes among friends. And remaining anonymous makes it all the better. Finding people from your home city in the comments (I found a lost friend commenting how much a comic had affected her)—you can’t buy that stuff. Love those guys.” So if you're not afraid of dark humor and some dark twists, these comics will surely help you to pass some time and escape reality for a minute!

Sometimes it does. Introverts (like me) need occasional bursts of isolation to recharge our batteries.
