We’ve got a real treat for you today – Xibang, one of our all-time favorite comic artists, is back on Bored Panda! The artist is known for his talent for touching the soft spot in his readers' hearts. His often wholesome comics feature themes of parenthood, mortality, animals, and other relatable topics that concern us all. If you want to catch up and see some of his earlier works, don't waste any time and check out our previous posts.

During one of our interviews, Xibang told us about his work: “I try to be positive and/or funny [but] I often draw stuff about how short and important life is [too] because when you have a kid, you start thinking about that kind of thing. A lot. So you get a bit of everything in my comics."

Now, without further ado, scroll down and discover the most recent strips we’ve selected for you today!

We got in touch with Xibang again and asked him even more questions about his work. This time, the artist shared with us some behind-the-scenes stories and fun facts about his comic creation process: “I do most of my drawings on my old smartphone these days. So I end up drawing at some really odd places - late night supper spots, computer cafes and a karaoke bar now and then. Mostly I'm just looking for a bright and lively place - because I tend to draw at night when I'm already pretty tired.”

Snort! And the arthritic knees, wrists, the bad back, the strange little grunts when you bend over, and the occasional little fart at the same time....when you can't recall where you put the whatsit that you needed to open the thingy.....oh, the joys of getting older!

When asked how he develops the characters featured in his series and their personalities, Xibang explained: “I use some general stereotypes for creating my characters - cats are mean, dogs are nice, etc. But I like to keep my other characters a little vague, so they can embody other themes or emotions when I draw. But in general, the pink guy in my comics is the sensible one, the blue guy tends to be the idiot.”

I'm adopted, and my dad was still the greatest dad I could have asked for. So it's not just about DNA-sharing and biological programming XD (I know this is a joke/comic, but still.)

We were also curious about how the comic artist handles creative blocks and periods of low inspiration. The creator of the series told us: “I handle them very, very badly LOL. In fact I'm going through a creative block now. I'm trying to get over it by just making myself draw and create, even if I personally don't think the ideas are very good. I think it's helping! Anyway, I've come to the conclusion that I should just draw and make things I enjoy, and not care so much if people like it or not. I try to remind myself of that when I'm struggling to create.”

Lastly, Xibang shared more details about some of the collaborations he has done with other artists in the past: “I've collaborated with Larkness and I really enjoyed it! I've also talked about doing stuff with other artists, but nothing has come of it. I feel like I'm too random and inconsistent to really bring anything to the table, so I'm glad people are interested in working with me still.”

No wonder they didn't put him back together again. The only one he'd ever cracked up was himself.

Plus, he’s got his hands right around where his heart is. So it’s in the right place, but the love it contains is just so huge it has to be really incredibly densely packed in there to make it all fit.

Take comfort in the significance of the Universe noticing you at all. We don't all get that much attention from it.
