30 Funny And Sometimes A Little Dark Comics By Skeleton Claw

“I get inspired by all kinds of things. It usually happens in three situations, during conversations with friends, on long walks, or as I’m drifting off to sleep,” Andy, the illustrator behind the amusing (and sometimes dark) Skeleton Claw cartoons told Bored Panda in a heart-to-heart interview.

“Some strange inkling of a thought pops into my head and I’ll write it down. Sometimes they become comics, more often they remain notes on my phone.”

We’ve collected some of the funniest Skeleton Claw comics, so scroll down, enjoy the pics, and our full interview with Andy. Upvote your faves, leave us a comment with your thoughts below, and be sure to let us know which of Skeleton Claw’s cartoons you enjoyed most and why! Onwards, Pandas!

Illustrator Andy admitted that he is a fan of Bored Panda and reads our online magazine ‘all the time.’ According to the artist, it takes him 2 to 3 hours, on average, to draw a single comic. However, the process can take far longer: “Sometimes, way longer because I’ll edit and re-draw the same idea several times.”

The creator of Skeleton Claw has a very interesting point of view towards art that stresses the importance of discipline in reminding the artist why he loves drawing in the first place. “It’s a bit like showering. Sometimes, you really don’t want to, but as soon as you get in you don’t want to leave. I have a similar relationship with drawing. I can go long periods of time without it, but as soon as I return to it, I remember everything I love about it and don’t want to stop.”

Bored Panda was interested to hear whether Andy always wanted to be an artist. Here’s what he had to say: “I think so. When I was really young, I loved doodling and playing with clay. When I started school, drawing became an escape from seemingly endless boredom.”

“When I was in college, I dabbled with the idea of becoming an Artist (with a capital ‘A’) but decided that it didn’t feel like a genuine way to express myself. A few years ago I stumbled on accident onto the idea of drawing comics, and something just kind of clicked.”

Despite the large following of fans who eagerly await his every new illustration, Andy says that he doesn’t yet consider himself to be a professional artist. However, he has learned a lot of valuable lessons on his way up.

“The biggest challenge I’ve faced is learning to not pay too much attention to what people say. If 99% of the feedback is positive, my natural tendency is to look at the 1% that isn’t.”

“When I was starting out, I’d be very bothered by negative comments, and it would affect my desire to draw and cause me to second guess myself. Nowadays I’m much less affected by such things. I try to keep a healthy distance between what I do and what people say about it,” he said.

He also shared some honest advice with those artists who might be too scared or too shy to share their art with the world: “You’re not going to get better by hiding. Your fear is absolutely holding you back. Share your work now, if only to prove to yourself that you are no coward. Afterwards, you’ll find that what felt like jumping off a cliff was in reality no scarier than stepping off the curb.”

When asked if there was anything else that he would like to share with Bored Panda’s readers and his own fans, Andy of Skeleton Claw quipped: “Try to use less plastic if you can.” But as they say, each joke has a kernel of truth hidden somewhere inside it.

This Photographer Captured Her Relationship With Her Two Dogs In 30 Funny Pictures

Ursula Aitchison is a photographer and owner of two adorable Golden Retrievers – Hugo and Huxley – based in London, UK. She proves that life with two dogs is never boring by documenting their lives in adorable pictures that might encourage you to finally get a dog – or another one.

In an interview with Bored Panda, the photographer, who specializes in shooting owners and their dogs, says she was inspired to start Phodography by her late great uncle painter Craigie Aitchison and his Belington Terriers who were featured in many of his works. Ursula says she got Hugo 6 years ago when she realized he full-time job involved dogs. Huxley, whose full name is Hurricane Huxley, joined the two 7 months ago.

“[Hugo is] charming, smart and cool. He adores people which is just fine because everyone he meets adores him. He is terrified of balloons but has no problem barking at camels we walk past outside London zoo, ” says Ursula. “He’s a squirrel fanatic but too slow to catch them thankfully. I’ve never seen a dog love food quite so much as he does, he’s eaten crumbs that haven’t eaten dropped from my sandwich. His purpose is to love and be loved by all…and be the goodest of good boys.”

The photographer says Huxley copies whatever Hugo is doing. “His tongue is always out and he drools so much, it reaches the floor even when there isn’t any food about. He is super needy and he pats you with his paw at least 100 times a day for attention,” Ursula described Huxley. “He’s really clumsy and often walks into stuff or falls over himself. He doesn’t retrieve anything and I think he’s as smart as a bag of rocks.”

“Huxley adores Hugo and has since day one, Hugo tolerates him in return,” says Ursula. “Hugo hated carrots until Huxley arrived and he now eats them to make sure Huxley doesn’t. Huxley will always push in if anyone gives Hugo a cuddle, he is very jealous. They cuddle on my bed so they are best friends, right!”

Ursula had some advice for people who want to take better pictures of their pets. She says you should teach them that the camera means a treat so they associate it with tasty food. “Find what your dog is comfortable with and make that his/her thing! Not all dogs are fine with balancing an egg on their head,” added the photographer.

People Can’t Believe This Raw Turkey Is Actually A Delicious Cake

Step aside, Ben Churchill – there’s a new contender for the title of Craziest Dessert Designer. Sarah Hardy is a British baker whose eerily realistic cakes will make you do a double-take. She bakes cakes in the shapes of human hearts, brains, frog and even baked one that looks like a raw turkey – imagine your reaction if you’d get served one of those without knowing!

In an interview with Bored Panda, the baker said she used to be a sculptor but moved on to creating cakes after having kids because with them she got to have birthday parties. “I do love a celebration!” said Sarah.

This might look like your regular old Thanksgiving turkey

Sarah said she was making weird stuff all the way throughout her life, even creating sculptures with “hair sprouting out of vertebrae and bulbous stretchy feet” as a teenager. The baker says the real reason her cakes are so odd is frustration. “I had been making wedding cakes, trying to make real, proper cakes. And I started to add the odd brown petal or insect to the beautiful sugar flowers. I don’t even know if all the brides knew…” said the baker. She eventually got fed up with making “designer” cakes and made something “more akin to a Dutch still life with snails crawling all over”.

But it’s actually a cake!

“When you’re buying a chocolate or a cake, you tend to be giving it to someone as a present and you want to give them an experience, not just a taste experience but the experience of surprise and a little bit of joy as well,” Sarah told Art Insider. “But most of the ideas are just things that I love. I’m just interested in natural history, internal organs, historical artifacts. If I like it and it’s cool, I’ll just make it edible.”

This turkey cake was baked by British baker Sarah Hardy who is known for her wacky cakes

Creating such intricate cakes can take the baker days and can cost hundreds of dollars. Sarah says she loves being called a genius but says it’s not true – she just has funny ideas and is prepared to fiddle for ages until she gets the right effect. “Many people don’t understand why one would want to make something that looks like a raw turkey… it is admittedly not for everyone,” added the baker.

Imagine the looks on your friends’ faces as you serve this turkey cake

Just in case you want to disturb your friends, you can try baking the raw turkey cake yourself – Sarah even included a recipe!

It looks even more disturbing in action

40 Photographs By Steve McCurry That Explore The Relationship Between Humans And Animals

Even if you’re not an avid fan of photography, you’ve probably seen some of photographer Steve McCurry’s work. He’s the same photographer who took the legendary Afghan Girl photograph that appeared on the June 1985 issue of National Geographic magazine. Throughout the years, the photographer has published many books and now he’s back again with a new one simply titled “Animals”. In his latest publication, Steve explores the complex relationship between humans and animals, and some of the photos look simply magical.

“The idea of photographing animals and people may have been planted in my mind since I was first starting out as a young photographer. My sister gave me my first photo book, Son of Bitch, a collection of pictures of dogs and their humans by the great photographer and friend Elliott Erwitt. It was the first time I saw a book on animals with humor, pathos, and wonderful storytelling,” said the photographer in a recent interview with Bored Panda. He says animals are one of his favorite subjects to shoot as they are completely unpredictable. “Animals are in constant motion, have a mind of their own and rarely pay any attention to directions from a photographer,” added McCurry.

The photographer shared some of his experiences working in Kuwait after the first Gulf War. He says it was a surreal and unforgettable experience. “There were 600 oil fields burning, panicked and starved animals were wandering about, and the landscape was dotted with dead Iraqi soldiers. It was heartbreaking to see these animals, which we were supposed to be guardians of. Those animals that escaped slaughter were abandoned and left to wander the streets looking for food and shelter,” said McCurry. He says the photograph he took there is his best work in the entire book.

Another one of the photographer’s favorite shots is the one he took in Thailand. “I photographed this novice monk studying Buddhist writings in the late afternoon at a monastery in Aranyaprathet, Thailand, near the border with Cambodia. I watched the changing light as the monks went about both the mundane and sacred duties of their day,” recalled the McCurry. “With the simple use of wood and fabric, of shades of saffron from mustard gold to deep orange, their environment was serene. The patient cat completed the scene of contemplation and peace.”

McCurry says it is his hope that people will see animals as intelligent beings that deserve our love and respect. “In most cases, our pets are totally dependent on us for their survival and safety. It’s our duty to protect them like our own children. Since we often create a special bond with certain animals, I would hope people should treat them with the care they deserve,” concluded the photographer.

Artist Illustrates How His Adopted Cat Helped Him Cope With Depression Over The Past 2 Months

Yash Pandit is an artist from Mumbai, India who has been struggling with mental health problems for a while now. And recently he received much-needed help from someone unexpected – a cat named Bagheera.

In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said he always wanted a dark-colored cat. “There’s always this stupid superstition surrounding dark cats about them being bad luck, so not many people wanted him anyway,” said Yash. “But mostly because out of all of the kittens there, he was the one I connected with, he was very calm. loving and always looking to cause some mischief. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him.”

The artist said that his new cat is a true rascal. “He will convince you that he’s sweet and calm, and then pounce on you when you look away. He’s the most friendly cat I’ve ever seen, has no problem in loving and greeting anyone new. He’s smart enough to pretend that he’s fallen asleep but also thinks his shadow is another cat and starts pouncing on it,” said Yash. He said that Bagheera loves to watch Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with him and that the cat won’t fall asleep until Yash puts on Frank Ocean songs. “I love him with all my life,” says the artist.



The artist suffered from Type 1 rapid-cycling bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety. He says the latter were by-products of his primary disorder. “I have a therapist and a psychiatrist, and I have a strict regime of therapy and medications that I follow religiously to keep my disorder under my control,” revealed Yash.


The artist believes that it’s absolutely important to seek proper health for mental health disorders. “A lot of people mistook this comic as my cat being the sole reason that I’m out of my depression, which is not true. I had to work hard, get therapy, take my medication on time,” said Yash.

“My cat helped me get out of my bed, have a workout routine, eat healthy when I feed him, wake up on time, etc. But I attribute my getting better largely to the strict regime of medication and therapy,” concluded the artist.

Woman Turns IKEA Lamp Into A Death Star

Don’t want your home to look like hundreds of others you see in IKEA’s catalogs? How about making it more like a Darth Vader’s den? Just put your construction hat on and follow this do-it-yourself guide on turning IKEA’s PS 2014 lamp into a glowing Death Star.

The tutorial is made by a self-proclaimed Star Wars geek Lylelo, who “always saw the IKEA PS 2014 lamp and thought ‘it looks so much like a Death Star!’”

She seized the opportunity for the DIY project when she was moving with her boyfriend to a new place, and “converted one of those plain white lamps into the exploding Death Star floating over our bed. We absolutely love it,” she told Bored Panda. Now take a look how to make one yourself!

I made this Death Star from a plain IKEA lamp and you can do it too

First step, of course, is to buy an IKEA PS 2014 lamp and a can of spray paint

“I used a can of light gray spray paint from the local hardware store. Do this outside because of the fumes and the necessary ventilation. If you want to have it perfect – cover the copper insides BEFORE you spraypaint the outsides. The mist of the spray dulled the sheen a tiny bit – it doesn’t bother us, but if you want it super shiny – cover it up. Or don’t use spray paint and brush the light gray instead. In my case, it was a matter of time and not wanting to paint them all by hand.”

We used masking tape for painting walls to cover the areas that should stay lighter

“Using an x-acto knife and a cutting mat with a ruler proved to be helpful to have a variation in the strips. Cut some wide, some small, some long, some short. Alternate to create the pattern, the death star wasn’t all the same, neither should be yours.”

We created a stencil of the round weapon on a piece of paper first and traced that onto the lamp with a pencil

Once you’re satisfied with the look of your pattern, you can paint a darker shade of paint over the whole ball

“We decided that black was too dark and sharp as a contrast, so we mixed a darker gray color. The paint is a mix of acrylic paint and a chalk paint, to give it a not so glossy finish. We found this paint in the hardware store.”

Paint the ball completely or work in segments – it all depends on your taste

“We peeled the masking tape not long after painting. Make sure to press the tape very well down before you paint, avoiding blotches and noses doing so. But even if you have some slight uneven lines – the end result will be great, because the Death Star has so many little bits and dots, it will look like you wanted it this way.”

The round weapon was painted by hand with a fine brush

Hang it on your ceiling as instructed – you will need a hook for that – and enjoy your Death Star lamp – it’s awesome!
