Working in an office is often stressful and complicated without any apparent reason. Unless you are the manager and can do something about it, you are pretty much doomed to deal with those everyday injustices, unbelievable demands, and moments that make you scream out loud.
The best way to deal with this kind of situation is to laugh about it. And this artist is doing just that. He created the "Work Chronicles" comics, and it illustrates funny and bizarre situations in a modern-day office.
They are hilarious, and sadly, so very real. It's impossible not to recognize yourself in the comics. We have compiled a list of some of the best of them, and we know you are going to laugh your heads off.
Creating comics is a sort of an outlet for the artist, and he mostly works on them at night and on weekends. It's not a career for now, but if these cartons are successful, then why not?
The artist enjoys the creative process, and the positive feedback these funny office stories get makes them work even harder.
"The most rewarding is when a comic expresses the thought you wanted to convey. It's a bonus when readers tell you that they connected to it."
"My love for comics started at a young age with me doodling on the back of my exam question sheets. I continued making comics in college, but stopped once I started working. After a few years of working, I saw and heard so many funny incidents at work which I thought would make great comics, and hence restarted with work as the central theme for my comics," the artist behind these cartoons told the reporters.
"Work Chronicles" are so funny because they are relatable. If you've ever worked in an office, you will recognize some of these situations.
People coping with stress at work, trying to avoid burnout, and dealing with people of various qualifications and mentalities is something that modern workspace implies.
This comic series's creator has found a great way to lay out frustrations to help us blow off some steam. In just a few months, Work Chronicles' Instagram account has more than 16k followers.
The artist started sketching Work Chronicles during the global pandemic lockdowns, and even though all characters are fictional, they are inspired by real-life people and experiences.
"I have many years of work experience. I have experienced, seen, and heard many different incidents. Some incidents have occurred to me. Some I have seen happening to colleagues. Some I have heard from others about what happens in their workplace."
