“Why does this always happen to me?” we like to ask after the encountering first world problems and tiny mishaps. Well, it doesn’t. Coffee spills and power shortages happen to everyone. To remind us that the universe doesn’t have its favorites, London-based artist Natalya Lobanova draws funny comics about universal everyday struggles we face and the annoying people we meet, and she’s doing a darn good job, too.

“I’ve been making drawings and webcomics since 2010, but funny cartoons are the entirety of my work,” Natalya told Bored Panda. “I am also a painter, illustrator, and animator. For me, comics tend to be fun side projects I occasionally make. They are, however, the stuff people like best, because they’re the most relatable!”

“None of my funny comic strips are about my life specifically,” the artist added. “I tend to focus more on universal feelings that I believe everyone experiences, usually of existential angst! I deliberately avoid drawing myself in comics, which is why sometimes I resort to an amorphous blob-like person, as I see that as a sort of ‘anti-character.'”

“I tend to complete things super quickly and try and put a point across with the minimum amount of words necessary to capture the funny thoughts.”
