Throughout the centuries of human existence, art has managed to prove itself to be an essential and highly valuable part of human existence. Especially in difficult times like these, with chaos and uncertainty leading us every step of the way. I’m absolutely sure that getting through an ordinary day of the pandemic would be much harder if there was no art to consume.
Lucky for us, we’ve got some extremely gifted folks out there who are able to single-handedly make us forget about the weight of the world. Well, at least for a few moments. One of them is an artist named Super Combo Deluxe who creates “random, offbeat comics” and shares them with the audience on social media. These comics about unexpected, ridiculous situations are not only incredibly entertaining but also fabulously drawn.
Without further ado, Bored Panda invites you to sit back, relax and look through some of our favorite comics by Super Combo Deluxe. By the way, we had a chance to ask the artist behind the comics some interesting questions, so make sure to look for the interview while scrolling down!
“My name is Alan and I’m a part-time artist, full-time web developer based in the US. I created the comic Super Combo Deluxe,” the artist behind Super Combo Deluxe told us. “I’ve been obsessed with drawing cartoons since I was a little kid. It’s something that has stuck with me over the years, through art school and into adulthood. However, it really has ramped up over the past 5 years with the introduction of digital art and how easy it is to pick up an iPad and just draw. I started creating digital art through fan art, mostly video game characters, and posting them to Instagram. Eventually, I just felt unfulfilled drawing someone else’s creations and wanted to develop my own.”
“One day, while watching a Loading Artist stream on Twitch, I started thinking how fun it would be fun to create a comic. The rest is history. I started out by drawing the comics and showing them to my close friends, who pushed me to keep going. Eventually, I started posting them online—first my website, then social media,” Alan explained to us.
