Some comics take their time to develop their characters and narrative. And they can be awesome. Often, however, we do not have the luxury to invest ourselves in such stories — just a few more minutes and we need to continue our day. Luckily, there are comics for these situations as well.
Taiwanese artist BrainHoleSky is on a mission to make people happy, and he’s trying to achieve it with just a couple of frames at a time. But even though his comics are short and simple, they’re absolutely adorable, too. Check them out to make your day fast.
BrainHoleSky loves drawing, telling jokes, and animals, and when they were traveling last year, a thought to combine all of these things struck their mind. “I started posting my comics on my personal Facebook account for my friends to see but after a while, their friends also wanted to check them out, so I started a fan page, and an Instagram account as well,” the artist told Bored Panda.#2
“Happiness, sadness, anger, love… My comics involve a lot of emotions. I think having animal characters is a good way to express them all. For example, a pug face can express a very sad situation. Or when you see a swelling pufferfish, you know it is very angry. You can very easily imagine how shocked umbrella lizard might look like. In conclusion, I often use animals symbols for emotions,” BrainHoleSky explained.#3
Since these comics are often only 2-3 frames, their author sometimes has too many things to fit inside of them. This could lead to readers not understanding the message, so BrainHoleSky said they have to be very careful with composition.
“All in all, I’m just really happy to see people enjoying my comics!”#4
