Working in an office does not only mean stability and routine but also stress, burnouts and challenges that one has to overcome. So it is not only good but also recommended to distance oneself from all the difficulties at work once in a while by looking at things from the prism of laughter. And we think we can help you with that!

"Work Chronicles" is back on Bored Panda with even more entertaining comics depicting funny incidents in the workplace. Doesn't matter what kind of job you have, we believe that most of us can relate to at least a few of the situations portrayed in these illustrations.

You can find more "Work Chronicles" comics in our previous article. Let us know if any of these have happened to you!

Bored Panda contacted "Work Chronicles" to learn more about the artist and their creative work. The artist has been working for a technology company for around a decade now. "I used to draw comics years ago in college. Once the pandemic hit, I had some free time since I was no longer commuting. I started making comics again to unwind and 'work' was a topic that I had the most experience and interest in. I posted some comics on the internet, got positive feedback and kept it going."

The artist is self-taught and hasn't had any formal training. "When I was small, I was obsessed with comics. I read every comic book I could find. I would visit different book stores to buy old comic books. I cut out comic strips from newspapers and stuck them on notebooks. Naturally, I had the urge to make comics myself. I doodled everywhere—notebooks, textbooks, newspapers. I continued this habit through school and college. I started drawing comics using pen & paper, but eventually moved to digital tools like Adobe Photoshop, iPad + Apple Pencil + Procreate App and more recently Adobe Illustrator."

"Work Chronicles" still remains a hobby for the artist. "I did the math and it's a lot of risks to do this full-time. I would need to do Patreon, merchandise, books, etc. And while that sounds great, I'm not sure how it would pan out 5 or 10 years down the line. I'm sticking to my day job right now, but who knows."

"The most challenging part of the creative process is selecting an idea and writing it into a script. I'm more obsessed with the script than the art. Great comics have great scripts. Writing and refining the script is also the part I enjoy the most."

The artist would love to eventually publish a book or a calendar and make short animated videos. Unfortunately, there's not enough time to work on new projects after the day job, comics and family.

"I love expressing ideas in the form of comics. It has the power to entertain as well as educate."

Any recruiter worth their salt will tell you 2 things... NEVER accept a counter offer from your current employer and NEVER tell them where you're going to work next.

I once lost a huge Word document I'd spent months on (like a training manual, with a TOC and hyperlinks to chapters and an index). I actually cried when it got corrupted and was unsalvageable. No usable backups, either. That might've been the first time I really loathed technology.

That's what my small town bank did. They were losing customers because of some ridiculous ideas and then they rebranded. They lost a lot more customers, including me after that.
