Have you ever been excited to see your favorite book getting a movie adaptation just to be left utterly disappointed? Or know all too well what it’s like to face the early mornings after your alarm clock went off and you haven’t gotten even nearly enough of that good night's sleep? Well, Malaga-based animator and 3D illustrator Nacho Diaz Arjona (also known on his social media platforms as Naolito) answers these questions in a series of clever and quirky illustrations that depict relatable and mostly everyday scenarios. The artist’s cute cartoon drawings personify food, nature, and other ordinary objects as he makes sure to inject some light-hearted humor into those awkward moments most of us somehow end up in regularly.

It’s no surprise that Naolito’s brilliant art has been previously featured on Bored Panda quite a few times already. Given that, and in case you are craving more of his amazing work, you can find more of his cartoons featuring inanimate objects by clicking here and here.

Nacho explains, “I really love Bored Panda and I love getting the chance to see my art shared here as well! In most cases, I find that humor is the best way to connect with people. I try to make my art universal, so I use objects and elements surrounding us to represent human emotions. I try to make my audience feel like the illustration is talking about them because I feel like it’s the whole point of it.”

Rendered digitally by using a drawing tablet and the well-known software Adobe Photoshop, Naolito starts by first sketching out countless ideas of his ideas on a simple blank canvas. He then looks back at them a few weeks later and if he still finds them funny and relatable, he takes it upon himself to refine them into a fully finished product that he can share with his audience.

Arjona started out by sharing his art on Instagram first, where he currently has an incredible number of over 621k followers. He made his first post back in August of 2013 and has been posting ever since. Currently, the artist has over 300 posts on Instagram alone, and it seems like he won’t be stopping any time soon, especially given how much he likes sharing his art with people.
