You can't run away from your problems. But you can at least poke fun at them! 31-year-old Russian artist Anastasia 'Stushona' Ivanova tackles her daily struggles in amusing comics, and her creative outlet seems to be easily overcoming the annoying little things.

Stushona has a background in illustration but has been drawing comics for only 8 months now. "The character is my alter ego," she told Bored Panda. "It's a reflective girl who finds non-standard ways of solving problems."

"I draw topics that bother me," she said. "Through comics, I express my attitude towards the world. [I believe that] self-irony is the best way to deal with troubles."

When there's no inspiration, Anastasia claims she travels or turns to her friends, borrowing their experiences for her works. "I have offended them in my comics," the Chelyabinsk-based artist confessed. Scroll down to check out her amusing strips and upvote your favorites!

Cat's hair has a magic power of ending up in every food you eat regardless of where the cat is.
