If you're looking for a little something to brighten your day, may we suggest these minimalist one-panel comics by Karlo Ferdon? For quite a few years Karlo has been creating these wordless, (mostly) black and white pieces all centered around ridiculous and almost surreal or dream-like situations where humans are merged with objects or inanimate objects act like humans of our modern-day world.

Ferdon just enjoys sharing his work on social media. In his last interview with Bored Panda, he shared, "In all truth, I can only say that generally, people tend to react to my work very well. Of course, there are always those who do not understand the joke at all or understand the opposite of what the cartoon tries to say or portray, but it is something that usually happens when making humorous comics without any words.”

Ferdon’s work has been previously featured on Bored Panda, and if you’d like to see more of it, you can click herehere, here, and here.

Just like last time Bored Panda reached out to Karlo with some more interesting questions for him to answer! Here are some of the thoughts the Chilean artist shared with us before starting the interview, "Before I start I’d also love to say many thanks to Bored Panda for considering and disseminating my work, especially not once but four times already!. And thanks to everyone who follows my cartoons and comics, both @KarloFerdon and @donSerapio (I have two accounts in case you didn't know!). Big thanks to you all guys!"

Karlo had quite a backstory as an artist, his works, surprisingly enough were actually first printed on paper. "At the beginning, my works were published in press, local newspapers, and magazines. Little by little social networks were also starting to give out artists more independence, and before I knew it there were Fotologs, Blogs, and now even Facebook and Instagram pages dedicated to various art forms, even ones such as comics (which frankly enough, I am a part of)."

When it comes to his personal ideas for the comics it can prove to be quite a process as the artist has his own unique way of processing creative thoughts. "When I sit down to think of the ideas for my work, I try to concentrate and translate what I have in my mind onto the blank sheet of paper, it is not always a true copy of what I had in my head, but I do my best to make it a reality, and usually it works out quite well! My comics are wordless so most of the time I have to really make sure I get the idea across with just the drawing alone."

What I view this as is a normal person going about his day with the punching gloves symbolizing insults. This is just my personal opinion of this art piece

The artist also shared with us how burnout affected his daily creative routine and creativity overall as such thing is surely hard to overcome sometimes, especially for artists. "Yeah, I've mentioned previously, but I do get burnt out and there are also creative blocks that I have to get through sometimes (well quite a lot actually). If I were to offer a piece of advice, my personal suggestion would be to not to push yourself too hard. As simple as it sounds we usually tend to overwork ourselves while striving to achieve something unimaginable. I say just try to think that the best drawing and the best idea is the one that will come tomorrow or even the day after, trust me on this!"
