Dry Humor, Sarcasm, And Absurdity Blended Together In Funny Comics By Steve Nelson (20 Pics)

Published 3 years ago

When good artwork is combined with fresh humor, it doesn’t fail to amuse people. Suppose a standup comedian turns into a graphic designer, what would be the result? Steve Nelson, aka Snelse, has answered this question by combining his passion for comedy with art.

This comedian-turned-illustrator creates witty comics to entertain people every day. His illustrations range from colorful to black-and-white and text-based to picture-only jokes, and they all contain an element of humor. As he mentions in an interview with Bored panda, “I would describe my style as simple, cartoony, and crude, I guess. And for my humor—dry and sarcastic jokes with a hint of the absurd.”

Scroll below to check out 20 hilarious illustrations created by Snelse.

In the interview with Bored Panda, Snelse explains his work process- “I cover anything and everything. I’ve always written one-liners and my drawings are no different—they’re all non-sequiturs. So it all depends on what I’m most excited to draw or how I’m feeling at the time, so it may be a silly cartoon-like knight getting stuck to a magnet or a more arty illustration of punching a hole in the wall.”

“The main goal of my illustrations is to make people laugh. And money. I’ve been writing comedy since I was 16 years old, starting as a stand-up comedian then moving on to writing for radio and TV until I eventually got my own comedy series on Audible (called The Temp).” Snelse explained his inclination towards comedy in the interview with Bored Panda.

Snelse also explained in the interview how the pandemic has changed his dedication towards illustration- “Although I started up drawing a few years ago, it was when the pandemic hit that I really got stuck into it as I had all this spare time to finally focus and figure out what I wanted to do. I won’t ever stop doing it now, I love drawing and want my work to reach as many people as possible.”
