Artist Martin Rosner has recently started creating comics, and we are so glad he did because he clearly has a talent and the right sense of humor for it. But what may seem just some funny comics is actually giving a glimpse into artists ' not so simple everyday problems.

“This whole thing started because I decided to make a weird comic a day for two months straight. I was severely depressed for two years and failed two colleges but thanks to therapy, meds, and a lot of work on myself I'm doing much better. Making these dark comics to me is like being able to say to my depression, ‘even with you in the way I am still able to make something,’“ Martin told Bored Panda.

“I try to be open about depression, I know it always helps to know that you're not the only one struggling,” he told us. “Getting it out of my system is a great help. People reacting positively to me sharing my feelings and these funny drawings is even better. I feel like I make a tiny connection with others. Just a tiny one but it is there.”

Perhaps these cartoon drawings, which started as a kind of therapy, can grow into something much bigger? “First I have to make a website, then figure out how to sell prints properly,” Martin told Bored Panda. “I don't have an end goal in mind but several smaller ones. I try not to focus too much on the number and statistics because I know that's the best way to make yourself miserable.”

Martin’s end goal is to make a living from his dark humor comics, art, and even the occasional stand-up show, another skill he has been developing to overcome the anxiety of being the focus of people’s attention. “I would love to improve to a level where I can sell tickets for a show,” he told us. But that is for the future.

It's a reference to a SNL skit, with Tracy Morgan. Very funny.
