This simple black and white webcomic deals with mundanity of life in my dry and sometimes poetic style.

4 panel black and white comic. 1: "Getting back on it after a long break is scary" Person wearing helmet stands by a bike. 2: "It can be easy, even a huge success" Person rides the bike with hands in the air and exclaims: "Look! No hands!" 3: "Or go horribly wrong" Person is on the ground in an awkward position with the bike laying partially on their head and says: "...ow..." 4: "So you just must decide if it's forth it" Person is back standing by the bike and there's an arrow pointing the bike with words "This bike is a metaphor"

Creating beautiful, strange and sustainable

I'm dedicated to bringing this world more art, creativity and weirdness, while advocating sustainability and slow business instead of unlimited growth.
