Safe to say that the life we live is rather complicated. Very few things are just “good” or just “bad” as we’re constantly exploring the grey area with all the different circumstances. Anton Gudim is an artist who’s great at noticing little ironic everyday situations and illustrating them in a “yes, but” format. We’re pretty sure you have experienced at least one of them.

"I am not doing anything on purpose. I am not out for a 'safari' with a camera on people to see them in their habitat. I just live my life: and my life is both everyday affairs and social networks,” Gudim told Bored Panda in a previous interview. “As soon as I started the 'YES, BUT' project, I began to notice examples of this format literally everywhere. So I just live and take notes." Scroll down to see the artist’s newest illustrations and don't forget to check out our previous posts about his work: part 1, part 2.

What makes Gudim’s illustrations so entertaining is the way so many of us can relate to them and notice similarities between the “YES, BUT” moments we experience in our own lives. By posting his art continuously, Gudim has accumulated over 1.6M followers on two of his Instagram accounts.

In a previous post, the Moscow-based creator told us that drawing was not his main occupation for a while: “I graduated from a technical university (since I was successful when it came to mathematics, this is also another factor that makes my drawings very calculated and unemotional, if one could describe them that), and began working as an engineer.

I changed jobs, grew professionally, but I was constantly bored and felt that my life was not as fulfilled as I’d like it to be. It was then that I realized that I’d like to return to those childhood hobbies, but with a more formed worldview.”

Oh I actually collect snow globes and I really don't care where they are made. I either buy them where ever I go to visit or ask someone's who traveling if they can bring me one when they're going on vacation. To me the only thing that matters is that the snow globe reflects the country or place where or someone else was

“It takes from a few hours... to infinity,” the artist says about the time needed to finish one of his comics. “There are many factors when it comes to creating comics. First of all, the speed of creation is influenced by how finished and how good the idea for the drawing is.

Secondly, like any creative person, there are days when you simply cannot do it: even after several hours of work, I may not be satisfied with the aesthetics and graphic solution of the drawing. Then I return to draft the very next day, or I simply hide this work somewhere far away.”

I will always make sure my animal has the best food and I make sure they get to eat before I do. When I didn't have a job my pets came first. I took them in with the understanding that they rely on me to protect and take care of them and I take that job very seriously.

Both my mother and father use this feature a lot. My father also started to use the self parking feature in his car too and I agree with that. If I'd pay how much he paid for the car then yes that thing better damn be able to park itself

True free range (no cage & no crowded stalls), no growth hormone, no antibiotic chickens are great. It's way more humane tbh.
