"We seek laughter when we’re suffering," Mr. Lovenstein told Bored Panda. "I like to explore that suffering and isolate what’s so damn funny about it. Why do we find cringe funny? Why do bad movies make us laugh? I also find life to be utterly absurd and you can show how absurd it is with minimal effort."

"When someone resonates with my dark humor, it's perhaps the single most gratifying part of creating anything," the artist added. "It’s hard to speak for my audience, but I think they’re overall lovers of black comedy."

"I could get all philosophical and introspective, but above all else I make jokes, and people like to laugh. Maybe if you scratch below the surface of these morbid cartoon drawings, some are drawn to the tinge of sadness, the absurdism, and the utter silliness of it all."

I imagine that a squirrel would come and take the acorn for a more dramatic ending

Ya know, if you look between the lines, it's a little sad. Whenever someone posts anything "sad and relatable" it gets tons of likes and upvotes (still like the comic though)

When you pretend you know what you're talking about but really you're screaming bloody murder on the inside

Just wait until I die, then I'm going up to the big guy himself and ask why
