UK-based artist Alex Norris is making comic strips cool again with his "Oh No" series, a gloriously awkward take on life's realest struggles.

These 3-panel fun comics, uploaded to a page known as "Webcomic Name", started appearing on Tumblr over the summer. The star is a little pink blob who faces everyday challenges and annoyances, from social anxiety to dirty contact lenses, but fails in hilarious ways and delivers its trademark punchline - oh no. "Webcomic Name is partly a parody of the extremely self-aware negative culture that has been popular on the internet for a while." Alex told Bored Panda. The funny drawings' simplistic presentation makes them both relatable and hilarious.

Alex has been drawing and illustrating since the age of 10, but he didn't take his talent for drawing funny comics full-time until after university. "Since graduating these oh no comics have always been my main focus because I haven't wanted to do any other job," though he added that he's had "a few side-jobs to pay rent."

As for the future of oh no meme, "a Webcomic Name book is in the works," and Alex said that he will be making announcements about it soon. He's also currently writing a separate series of funny comic strips for Webtoon called Hello World, which you can read here. Oh, yes!

My late dad , when he became a pensioner, actually carried around a paper with the outline of a body on it. He had labeled the various bits that were bothering him so that he had a visual aid in answering this question. I pity anyone who was foolhardy enough to ask about his health !
