There’s probably not a day when some of us don’t scroll through some comics on social media. No matter where you look, they seem to be everywhere, scattered all over social media for people to consume to their liking. Random and seemingly out-of-context comics seem to be the best kind, though, and today we would like to show you the illustrations of "Blue Boi," the creator of Katalyst comics.

Bored Panda reached out to Kyle (the author of the comics) to find out a little bit more about him and his work.

“I started making comics in April 2020 during the first wave of coronavirus lockdowns. I was in a bad place in my life and I started making comics as a way to pass time and relieve stress, and I haven’t stopped making them since then!”

We also asked Kyle to tell us a little bit more about what inspired him to make the comics in the first place as he seems to be very eager to share them with his audience.

"Well, all I can say is that...for many years I loved making jokes. Making other people laugh is like my life’s purpose and I want to keep it that way. Drawing comics is like spreading joy with funny illustrations! (If that makes sense?)

One can enjoy creating something but feedback is also a very valuable part of the process, especially for the artists who share their work with the rest of the world using the power of social media. We couldn't help but ask the artist about what kind of feedback he receives overall when it comes to his works, "Your comments are the best way for me to see what you think. My favorite comments are those that reference the comic in some way, and it tells me a lot about what makes you like the comic, to begin with. But if not, your Likes are still very welcomed of course!" He told Bored Panda.

Very sweet. We do find it odd to care for others. It shouldn't be odd to be a decent human being.

Digital art and art, in general, is not easy and requires a lot of patience, time, resources, and in most cases, even money. Therefore, we wanted to know how the amazing artist might've learned to draw.

"I appreciate being called amazing! I had never taken any serious courses in art, and sometimes I feel like I'm lacking in some skills. But that doesn’t stop me from having fun and making comics, since I think my jokes are pretty comical! (Get it?)"

Starting out with art, or even a more niche part of it such as comics might be difficult for someone who has yet to grasp how the community around them works. We asked Kyle if he had any advice for someone who might be looking into doing comics as well.

"I feel like I started my comic account pretty late compared to others, but what allowed me to grow is long-term consistency and branching out to different platforms. Try experimenting communities, as you might find your true audience where you least expect it!"

Lastly, we asked the artist if he had anything he wanted to share with us and our dear readers (Pandas).

"While appreciated, professional art skills are not always necessary! If you are an aspiring artist, your ideas are what makes your art unique. Whether to tell jokes or to send a message, your unique take is often what people like to see, so never stop trying!"

I do not fear the summer, where i have to shovel a huge amount of stuff in my brain. I fear what comes after the success.
