The internet is full of animal comics, with cats and dogs, of course, dominating the scene (as they do). But birds don't often get the spotlight to preen their beautiful feathers in ink or paint. Well, potatopato comics are here to fix this issue.
The artist, Cynthia, chose her own pet, a cockatiel named Buddy, as the focus of the comics. With playful, positive scenarios she portrays what it feels like having a parrot as a pet and showcases the joys and struggles of living with Buddy. As for what inspired the artist, she said that it's all based on real life. "They are largely real incidents, based either on Buddy himself, or experiences I've had with other birds in my life" Cynthia told Bored Panda. With quite a following, the artist revealed that the reaction is overwhelmingly positive. "People tell me it helps them with depression and helps get them through bad days, and I'm grateful to be able to help" she said.
Scroll down to check them out and hey, they might inspire you to get a cockatiel of your own. Don't forget to vote and comment on your favorite pieces!
