Russian artist Anastasia Ivanova has years of practice as an illustrator, but she started drawing comics just recently. She says that the main character in the comics is her alter ego, and she tries to incorporate the topics that really bother her. She uses her character to find unusual solutions to problems in a fun and amusing way.
Enjoy these 15 examples of Anastasia’s work that will surely make your day brighter and happier!
1. Some guys need to learn how to be gentlemen
It’s annoying for a girl to be stuck between two guys in the subway. While there are a lot of reasons for that, the main one is probably the zero leg space left for her after the dudes are usually sitting with their legs wide spread.
2. A common girl problem – getting what you want becomes not the thing you want
Women are a mystery, and one of their peculiar ways is that they seem to always be more or less unsatisfied if they get what they want, or they change their mind about wanting it or not.
3. Drastic measures can be applied just to get some attention
It’s actually rude and annoying to be in someone’s company and yet you constantly tap your phone. Some girls cannot stand this and they simply do something about it.
4. If you have a cat, you will definitely relate to this
No matter how hard you try, hairs from your cat’s fur will be all over the place. Yes, this includes your food, too, but this is something that you just go with, because it’s part of the deal when you live with a feline friend.
5. Having a cup of coffee in the morning is just the beginning
In order to start accepting the world at least a little bit, most girls need huge amounts of coffee. This is essential for waking up and starting the day with the right mood, or else, your coworkers and friends will be forced to stand your annoying self.
6. When life serves you lemons, you make lemonade and probably drink it afterwards
Acting tough when you got punched in the face by life is not the right way to deal with problems; you need to address what was wrong about the situation, accept it for what it is and move on. It is always difficult to do, but necessary as well.
7. Buying things is like an addiction
You can never have enough clothes, and you never have enough free space to store them in the same time. Sounds familiar, right? Well, it’s a never ending process of buying something that you think will be the last thing you get for a certain period, but you know deep inside that you’ll be browsing online stores again in no time.
8. The sensation of buying your very first car is quickly transformed into something else
Getting yourself a car is always an amazing experience, but sooner than you think you are brought back to reality when all the expenses come knocking on your door and you realize that it will become a financial burden.
9. Feeling tired is the one thing everyone hates
When you’re exhausted or frustrated, all you can do it hit the sack. Sometimes you are in a very big need of sleep and you feel as if the bed devours you. It’s kind of like when you are slightly drunk.
10. Here we go with the coffee routine again
As we mentioned earlier, coffee is just essential to kick of the working day, otherwise you would probably not be very productive, not the mention the lack of tolerance of the other or the poor communications skills.
11. Every girl’s nightmare
If you don’t know the hairstylist you booked for a haircut, you may end up with a horrific result. Hair is sacred to most girls and this could be a bigger problem than it seems to some people.
12. Getting that tan is no easy task
Apart from having your favorite bathing suit fade under the strong sun, you also get a partial tan because of it.
Not every girl is willing to go topless on the beach, so most of them need to put up with the partial bronze tan.
13. The daily make-up fails never end
Having a full face make-up is a painstaking task, but only a moment of distraction could mean that you would need to do it all over again. Beauty needs sacrifices and most girls make them on a daily basis.
14. Sometimes things do not go as planned
Not every moment is the perfect time to get some work done. You sometimes lack the motivation or the inspiration to do it, so you end up frustrated.
15. Talking about inspiration, you sometimes find it in the most unusual places
It’s typical to like something you just saw so much that you start wanting the same immediately. In certain situations you can even fulfill your desire rather easy, as the comic here suggests.
