Comic artist MadeByTio is a very efficient storyteller. They need only 4 panels to express an idea. However, the simplicity of this format doesn't mean the situations are simple too. The content is a healthy mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary.
One comic might be about our messed up postures and the next depicts sentient lobsters boiling people for supper. Either way, they're direct, borderline offensive, and most importantly, funny. MadeByTio has a knack for mocking the absurdity of our world and constantly comes up with new, unexpected ways to do so.
"Thanks to my older brothers who are way more talented than I am, I have been drawing and sketching my entire life," MadeByTio told Bored Panda. "I started to create webcomics in December 2016, when I was addicted to Imgur and really enjoyed various webcomic artists [whose works would appear on the platform]."
After giving webcomics a go, MadeByTio immediately knew it was something they liked. "I loved and still love the idea that you can express so much with four little panels, that you can make people think about different topics, or simply bring smiles to their faces," the artist explained. "I bought the cheapest graphic tablet I could find and just started drawing."
MadeByTio's former roommate and them were having a blast coming up with new comic ideas, no matter how "stupid" they thought they were. "One day, I created a Facebook page and an Instagram account and started publishing my comics on them. That was the beginning," they said.
Pretty soon, MadeByTio started one of their most popular mini-series 'How Your Brain Works'. It debuted in 2019. "To be honest, many of these situations have happened to me personally. That was the reason why I drew the first 'How Your Brain Works' comic. The one with the coffee hurt a lot."
