Clever Illustrations Reflect Hilarious Human Behavior

Graphic designer David Olenick perfectly illustrates the humor of bad decisions, excuses, and basic human behavior. Olenick's designs are cleverly executed with a handy array of puns and a quirky cast of characters. From a tough guy name badge that reads: “HELLO MY NAME IS: keep walking” to the affectionate T-Rex with his outstretched tiny arms saying “I love you THIS much,” the artist's sense of humor shines through.

A couple of Olenick's latest creations feature alcoholic beverages with some sound advice–a glass of wine recommending you to “text him” (presumably an ex) and a mug of beer getting real friendly with an “I love you, man.” The illustrations and typography are fairly simple and minimalistic, but it's the combination of the image with the text that makes the whole thing hilarious and embarrassingly relatable.

Prints and other merchandise featuring Olenick's humorous designs can be purchased through his shops on Society6 and Threadless.
