32 Quirky Yet Thought-Provoking Drawings By Artist Nacho Diaz

This guy is good at finding humor in everyday objects.

What sets apart great art from terrible art? It could be many things but personally, I think what makes good artwork stand out is its ability to communicate to its intended audience. Whether it is a well-detailed painting or a simple comic strip, effective art can convey a message and even spark an emotion from its beholder.

This is exactly the reason why I became an instant fan of Nacho Diaz, an artist whose work we will showcase below. Based in Spain, Diaz has been making waves online mostly because of his funny illustrations.

In a Bored Panda feature, this talented guy has been described as someone who “enjoys putting everyday things into bizarre situations” thus, “perfectly creating humorous double entendres.”

You’ll have to see his stuff to understand what that means. But trust us on this – you’ll never see a broccoli, a teabag, or a pinata the same way again once you get to experience Diaz’ art.

Go check out his colorful, thought-provoking drawings below:

1. Global warming accurately depicted.

2. No love for broccoli.

3. Poor T-Rex!

4. We all know how this feels like.

5. The big difference.

Disney Animator’s Comics Diary About Losing His Wife is Terribly Heartbreaking

Read the captions and try not to cry.

Losing a loved one can be a sad, traumatic experience. People deal with the grief differently and for this man, keeping a ‘doodle diary’ has been most helpful.

A former illustrator for Disney, Gary Andrews’ comics about losing his wife and living life as a single father of two is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. No wonder his work has made an impact to his numerous followers on social media.

In a BoredPanda feature, we learn that Gary began doing his comics-style journal entries back on his 54th birthday. He was happily married at the time and a father of two children.

Unfortunately, something tragic happened. His wife Joy got sick and they initially thought it was nothing but flu. It turned out, however, that it was actually sepsis and it eventually led to her death.

Gary shared:

“From the minute Joy was admitted to hospital, specialists from every department tried to find out what was wrong. They couldn't have done more. It wasn't until the post-mortem that they narrowed it down to sepsis.”

Overwhelmed by his sadness, Gary later turned to his notebook and began pouring his emotions out on paper – by making artworks.

He recalled:

“I was crying so hard it was difficult to focus on the page. I was drawing through tears.

“Joy had been my soulmate for 19 years. She was beautiful, kind, generous and funny. We did everything together. When I lost her, I felt half of me had gone.”

Now his touching comics have captured the hearts of many on the internet.
