In the past few years, drawing scenes from conversations I overhear has become my way of combining my love of satirical cartoons and creating an illustrated time capsule of this strange time we live in. Having lived in Los Angeles for the past few years, I've witnessed trends come and go. Hipster mustaches were replaced with man buns, yoga studios started to invite goats to their classes, and online dating became more hellish than ever.

I recently collected all of the illustrations into a book titled #ThingsThatIHear available here (enter promo code "PANDA" for a limited time special discount)

It was suggested that I add a picture to my profile with a pet, I didn't have one so I found a picture of me on a trip with a monkey. My fiancee picked me to talk to because I had a pic of a monkey on my shoulder. She wanted to know if I was afraid that it would rip my face off.

I have no shame when it comes to deep IG stalking. If you let me follow your IG, you can bet I'm going back to the paleolithic.

So if a vegan doesn't mention he/she is vegan and better than you in the first 10min of talking to them are they still vegan?
