Tommy Siegel is one of those illustrators who are cracking us up with each new Instagram post, but one type, in particular, struck a chord with his followers. His signature candy heart comics became a huge hit online thanks to their honest nature.
Siegel’s initial idea for this project was to explore people’s internal monologues, and it’s proven to be hilarious and insightful at the same time. His characters may be shaped like candy hearts, but don’t expect them to be sweet, because they’re always telling it like it is.
Siegel started this creative endeavor while working on his 500 days – 500 comics project, and it didn’t take long for his illustrations to go viral. Their piercing honesty made his comics incredibly relatable, because they captured the thoughts we all had, but were too scared to share with the world.
Candy heart comics usually revolve around dating and relationship drama, but they also discuss everyday situations that have nothing to do with people’s romantic lives. Check out some more witty comics on his Instagram page, and we’re sure they’ll crack you up.
