Some of the best stories are taken from real life and Mikiko, an illustrator living in Germany, has taken this idea to heart. She takes anecdotes from her own life and turns them into adorable comic strips that have become immensely popular with fans around the world.
Keep scrolling to see the beautiful illustrations about her everyday life with her boyfriend and cat.
Life can be hilarious at times and a comic strip is often the best way to recreate the hilarity of a situation. In this strip, Mikiko shows a role reversal when her boyfriend who remains stoic during their entire time in the zoo gets scared when he sees a normal spider.
Pets can really mess things up but they’re so adorable that you can’t help loving them through it all. Even though Mikiko is clearly killing it at the video game, her cat steps over her keys and ruins everything. But instead of raging as she would have at a person, she simply cuddles her cat because she loves it more than anything else.
The Real You
We all reveal a different side of ourselves when we’re outside which is not the same as the side we reveal at home. We’re always more comfortable letting go in front of people we love and trust.
Eyes That Follow You Everywhere
Using the loo is a very private task and women especially aren’t comfortable when they don’t have the required privacy. Even if it is just a picture of a person with eyes that follow you around, it can get really creepy to go about your normal toilet tasks in that scenario.
It’s a tough world out there for women. Others are constantly judging us for the way we look, walk, speak, and think. This becomes ingrained in us as well and sometimes, we are overcome with self-doubt even when no one else is around. Sometimes, it is enough if a picture seems to be looking at us for our minds to think about all the things that we could have possibly done wrong that day.
There’s nothing like getting the food that you’re craving for just at the moment when you want it. Imagine the excitement she must have to pick up the chips she wanted all day only to find out that they’re out of stock. There’s also the added embarrassment of having nothing to show the cashier so you just pick up the first thing you see even if it something you wouldn’t eat otherwise.
