From New York lofts and co-ops to LA traffic jams, Miami's Art Basel, and beyond-Emmet Truxes's cartoons brilliantly poke fun at our hobbies and misfortunes in a vein similar to that of the New Yorker. Step inside Truxes's world of coworking spaces, Uber pools, and artisanal sweatshops. Featuring all-too-relatable depictions of millennial milestones and struggles (squeezing into cramped apartments, scouring dating apps, learning how to live with a significant other, angling your food and lighting for the perfect picture), You Look Better Online is full of self-deprecating good fun. You Look Better Online does what only the best cartoons can: it gently chides its audience while insightfully and accurately depicting their lives.
Emmet Truxes, the mastermind behind @BrooklynCartoons, is all too familiar with the absurdities, hilarities, and idiosyncrasies of the millennial age. Raised in Connecticut, with degrees from both Princeton and Harvard, this architectural visionary by day is also an expert eavesdropper: from New York to Los Angeles, he stockpiles the definitive moments of the Snapchat generation and turns them into meme-ready cartoons.
