If You Are Trying To Lose Weight, This Comic Might Be Just What You Need

Published 6 years ago

Gavin Aung Than is an artist who started creating comics back in 2011 after quitting his unfulfilling job. He often creates comics based on classic poems set in modern environments and this time he chose one by poet Edgar Albert Guest, titled “It couldn’t be done.”

In an interview with Bored Panda, Gavin said he thought using fitness and running was a good idea for this comic. “Plus, the character in the comic was used in one of my earlier Zen Pencils comics where he first decided to lose weight. So I wanted to bring him back and continue his story,” said the artist.

Gavin has received messages from fans, telling him that his comics motivated them to get into shape. The artist says that the combination of the poem and his pictures really packs a punch: “That’s the power of comics!” He says although the poem is pretty motivational by itself, an original story can make the message even stronger. We’ll let you be the judge – check out Gavin’s motivational comic in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
