Artist Overhears Ridiculous Conversations, Turns Them Into Funny Illustrations

Funny Illustrations of Overheard Conversations

People say the darnedest things when they think they’re having a private chat. But for those that overhear these bits and pieces of random conversations, the exchanges can be cringe-worthy, juicy, or even downright hilarious. Dreamworks Animation artist Avner Geller visually chronicles these moments in his aptly-titled series, #ThingsThatIHear. The funny illustrations include what he heard as well as colorful scenes that correspond to the content of the overheard conversations.

Much of what Geller depicts will make you laugh. Drawn in a retro-inspired style, #ThingsThatIHear features people giving relationship advice, lodging complaints, and proving that our life increasingly revolves around apps and social media.

“The conversations reveal moments of public intimacy, hilarious contradictions, and the discomforts of luxury,” Geller tells My Modern Met, “shining a light on just how ridiculous human existence can be in our modern life.” One of our favorite instances demonstrates how even when we're in nature, we're on our phones—and it can be totally unnecessary. The illustration features a man snapping a picture from a beautiful lookout point. As he is kneeling to capture the perfect shot, an impatient woman says, “You can find a better photo on Google. Can we go now?”
