Artist Observes Daily Life and Creates Relatable Comics About Things We Miss or Simply Choose to Ignore in Life

Sobering Mirror is the Instagram name of a comic artist who chose to be anonymous for the audience. He creates some relatable comics about problems we all face daily. Every piece of his work comes from the daily observation he does. Through comics, this artist tried to reflect some aspects of life that a lot of people don’t notice or just simply choose to ignore. In fact, this is the concept behind the name he goes by as well.

As the name suggests, the sobering mirror is a sobering reflection of the life each one of us is living. Although we come from different backgrounds, Sobering Mirror reflects what ties us all together. Therefore, these comics are some you shouldn’t miss at all.

“I frequently find myself making observations about life that I feel most other people either don’t notice or want to admit. That’s how I came up with the name. I’m holding up a metaphorical mirror to the reader, and the realization that they can see themselves in my jokes is – you guessed it – sobering,” said the creator of Sobering Mirror when reached out by Earthwonders.

Below we made a collection of some of the pieces we found the most relatable to us. Scroll down for the interview and to check out the comics. Let us know in the comment section if you can relate to them as well.

” I always laugh when anyone uses “art” to refer to what I’m doing with Sobering Mirror. I’m very clearly not an artist, and my comics reflect that. If anything, I’d consider myself a hobby writer who happens to use crude drawings as a vehicle to express his thoughts. As for my personal background – for now, I’m remaining anonymous. However, I will say that I’m an engineer at a well-known global software company. Until my attempts at comedy become more widely recognized, I’d prefer not to be known as “the guy who makes weird webcomics” at the office.

The engineer shared a little bit about his working process as well: “Coming up with the initial ideas is the easy part; the comics are based on thoughts that naturally occur to me day-to-day. It starts to get a little bit more difficult when it’s time to convert those thoughts into entertaining scenarios for a comic. It’s extremely difficult to draw those scenarios because I’m bad at drawing.”

Cat as the CEO of a Major Corporation

Have you ever wondered how your office would look if your boss would be a cat? If yes, cartoon artist Tom Fonder will answer all your imaginations with his brilliant web-comic called The Adventures Of Business Cat.

The Adventures of Business Cat details the life and times of the world’s wealthiest business pet. This business tycoon manages a multi-billion dollar corporation and in his free time, he enjoys looking outside of windows. If you have a cat, you will notice that this comic is spot-on cat behavior. From the impulse that drives them into a box, to their strange way of handling gifts, their expressions of love and care, their need to knock things down the tables, and their hate for closed doors.

“Cat is not afraid to milk the corporate cash cow for his taste of the big-time,” Fonder writes on his site. “He pushes the envelope with his integrated approach, maximizing leverage, downsizing, rightsizing, and other business things.”

Take a look below for some of the newest adventures of the business cat.
