Brilliant illustrations sum up the struggles of adult life

lIFE.jpg

Life is, famously, not easy.

Even adulthood and the wisdom that age brings doesn't make things any more straightforward, as life keeps finding new ways to challenge us and just basically make things annoyingly difficult - just when we thought we had it all figured out.

Thankfully, though, if you've ever felt this way, you're certainly not alone - and you can also take solace in the fact that the amazingly talented artist Shenanigansen also knows how you feel.

The Massachusetts-based illustrator has created a whole host of comic strips, detailing our daily struggles with self-esteem, optimism, pessimism, setbacks, friendships and everything in between, which all ring true.

You can check out more of his work here, and our favourite selections below.
