Artist Expresses Her Personal Experience With Autism Through These Adorable Comics (35 pics)

Mylène or AspiGurl and her partner Jean-Nicolas who behind WTFrame Comics create adorable comics with a personal take on autism.  Jean- Nikolas has a background in 3D animation and CGI.  To show her experience with autism, Mylene says that there are two creations in particular that have inspired her to dare and try to illustrate experiences and ideas she has difficulties finding words.

“There are the comic ‘Invisible Differences’ by Julie Dachez( originally published in French) which showed me that it is possible to talk about autism from the first-person point of view without dramatizing it. The webcomic ‘Assigned Male’ also made a big impression on me for its courage, but also for its format. I liked the freedom provided by the webcomic format compared t the constraints of more traditional comics. I must also say that without the online community, I would never have dared,”  shared the artist when reached out by Earthwonders.

“Speech is a daily challenge! Not only are words (especially when spoken) not quite natural for me (I think more visually), but there is a huge lack of words to express the daily lives of autistic people. Miranda Fricker, a researcher in philosophy, has written about what is called “epistemic injustices” (the term “epistemic” basically refers to knowledge). She noticed two types of injustices around the knowledge that affect marginalized groups. First, cases where people are not listened to because they’re wrongfully judged as noncredible (testimonial injustice). Second, there are lacks in our shared vocabularies or concepts for naming certain marginalized realities (hermeneutic injustice), Miranda Fricker’s example is the phenomenon of sexual harassment which could hardly be discussed before the concept (or term) “sexual harassment”.

I believe that autistic people are particularly susceptible to these types of injustices. Allists (non-autistic people) will often speak for autistic people (whether they are clinicians, professionals, or parents). It is also difficult to describe certain experiences, I am still looking for a way to express sensory overloads into words! All this to say: it is actually easier for me to illustrate experiences than it is to describe them! And to be honest, everyday life is an infinite source of ideas! The most difficult thing was (and still is!) not to feel obliged to reproduce standard formats. Early on, for example, I had the reflex to use words in the comics because that’s ‘how it’s done,” shared the artist for Earthwonders.

Dark Jokes That Will Make You Feel Guilty for Laughing by Good Bear Comics

Are you that type of person that grimaces or recoil in horror or do you laugh out loud even if you know that probably a place in hell is reserved for you? Feeling guilty or you just enjoy the overall dark humor. If the latter is true maybe you are smarter than the average population says a study on this subject.

A 2017 study by Austrian neurologists found that people who appreciate dark jokes, which they define as “humor that treats sinister subjects like death, disease, deformity, handicap, or warfare with bitter amusement,” may actually have higher IQs than those who don’t. What’s more, they’re less negative and aggressive than people who strictly prefer family-friendly jokes. Why? Because if you can see the humor in even the bleakest parts of life, and you can laugh at truly dark jokes, you’re less likely to take the world too seriously.

And many artists use this type of comedy to depicts their artwork. James from “good bear comics” creates dark comics for his followers. As such he gathers already 89.8k followers on his Instagram.

When asked what inspires him and how he makes these comics he stated; “If I think of something funny that would make a good comic, I’ll write it down. I usually run it by friends and family to see if they find it funny first.

A big factor in what idea I decide to turn into a comic is what I feel like drawing next—if I feel like drawing cute animals, I’ll pick a joke from my list of ideas with animals. I also have a lot of comic ideas that I love, but they would be a pain to draw, so I, unfortunately, keep putting those off for later.”

That’s a very interesting fact considering how offensive these jokes might be. But hey they are just jokes after all!

Now scroll down to read the comics; we will be watching you if you laugh at these dark jokes or not!
