This Witty Comic Explores 'The Meaning Of Life'

And comes to one clanger of a conclusion.

Whether we’re roaring drunk at the pub, chilling on the beach or lying in bed, one question continues to boggle our minds: what is the meaning of life?

In her series of witty comics, Swiss illustrator Anja Wicki explores this unanswerable conundrum looking at three topics: health, honesty and energy. 

“The daily life  - with all it’s absurdity, tragedy, importance, unimportance and big dreams - was my inspiration,” she tells The Huffington Post UK.

“I like to combine absurdity and humour with deepness and tell enjoyable stories. I hope the readers can feel this.”

Wicki makes notes as she goes about her day-to-day business, whenever she sees or hears about someone’s story that may be interesting to sketch. 

“For these comics I mixed reality and fiction. I started with a real piece and then created a fictional story,” she explains. 

“I hope this comic makes the readers think about their personal meaning of life. And maybe in the end they arrive at the same conclusion as I – there is no meaning of life.”
