If, like me, you find yourself procrastinating on the internet for hours on end, it is entirely possible you have stumbled upon this artists work without even noticing.
Since 2010, 29-year-old comic artist Adam Ellis has been sharing his work online, starting on a humble blog BooksOfAdam. The Portland, Oregon native slowly built a steady fanbase and was soon picked up by Buzzfeed as a regular contributor and made his way to New York.
He released his debut book in 2013 entitled The Blunder Years, a collection of essays that detailed the life of a young man trying to get is life together while facing an ordeal of humorous obstacles and challenges. Based on his now popular blog, the book is a strong choice for an easy, hilarious read.
With hyper-relatable comic strips, especially for gay millennials, Ellis is now a pseudo-celeb in his own right, amassing just under a million followers across his social media, with a loyal gay fanbase his signature illustrations reaches thousands.
Making the most of his new found fame, Ellis debut a comedy podcast Better Friendship Through Podcasting with friend Kristin Rossi where they discuss different topics in a casual but amusing manner.
The young entrepreneur is now onto his next exciting project, which is shrouded in just a little mystery – he has begun teasing a new set of comic characters for an unknown piece of work.
