I AM GARBAGE

Graphic humour

Barcelona, since 2020

A selection of self-parodic graphic humour illustrations published weekly in my instagram.

SoyBasura (I Am Garbage) was born, like many projects, in the middle of a pandemic. It arose because my humour had been building up for years. The humour of
a forgetful fifty-something man, who is not very comfortable with anything and who lives with a bearable dose of bitterness. It’s a cliché, I know, but we know
that self-parody helps us to cope with things a little better.

I am my favorite target and I frequently resort back to black humor. I am not too scared to discover the garbage that animalises me, my miserable areas.
Since I’m a bit of a coward, I criticize people through my character, making consequences easier to bear. I usually talk about interpersonal relationships,
one’s own fragility, fears and also sex. Because, let’s not kid ourselves, the only thing is that… Wait, I forgot.

Well, it doesn’t matter. In short, the comic strips may talk about me, but
ultimately throughout these years I have seen how many people have felt identified
with some of them. Which leads me to suspect that SomosBasura.
