Artist Relates Situations With History In 30 Dark Humor Comics

  Published on 

It’s been a while since we’ve seen comics and characters drawn in the 90’s style. They are drawn pretty realistic with lines that look a bit shaky, shadings that are still done with linings and always in black and white only. Don’t you miss the way humor was conveyed in this old-school style that is rather dark and relatable?

Jake likes onion. Jake is also the person who drew these B&W comics and posted them on his Instagram page jakelikesonions. It appears that his sarcasm and a rather traditional drawing style are popular among readers. It’s shown from the 389k followers he has now, with a lot of people commenting about how smart the jokes are executed.

Jake’s original comics range from ‘relatable to the utterly nonsensical and bizarre.’ He’s been drawing ‘Jake Likes Onions’ since 2015 and regularly posts twice a week. The 30-year-old’s day job is as an advertising copywriter based in Minneapolis.
