Adult struggles are brilliantly explained through these funny comics created by Clare Kayden Hines, a California-based artist with a nag for day-to-day observations. The artist started drawing from a very young age, and the results show that she’s been around the corner in the digital art domain. Or not… your pick.

“I started drawing after I got my first dog, Buttercup,” she told Bored Panda. “I was 5 and I was so obsessed with her that all I wanted to do was draw her on every piece of paper I could find. I eventually expanded to drawing other subjects beyond dogs. I’ve taken a few drawing classes, but in general, I just doodled and drew for fun… mostly during class or boring meetings. Probably way too much. My classmates started noticing me drawing in class and would ask me to draw pictures of their dogs for them!”

“I’d never done a “true” comic until I started this account in October 2017. I was working at a large tech company and felt starved for a creative outlet. I dreamt up an illustrated alter ego, Kayden Hines, who reflected the tension I felt between doing everything I was “supposed” to do, and my growing resistance to doing so. She was my comedic release.”

“I started illustrating Kayden as she went through various awkward, ridiculous, mundane, and frustrating life scenarios. There’s something so funny to me about our constant battles with ourselves to be functioning human beings. It’s like our brains are constantly at war with our sloth-like selves to get stuff done. And sometimes it’s the mundane things that feel the most insurmountable, like looking at a sink full of dirty dishes, saying “UGHHHHHHH, F*CKKKKKK”, and then doing the dishes anyway. Or responding to a long email from a camp friend asking “how are you?” that’s been sitting in your inbox for 3 months giving you anxiety.”
