The artist has been creating “Yes, But” comics since 2016. This format was inspired by reflections on how people get along with many contradictions in their lives.
Anton looks at the world through the prism of an absurd surrealistic style. Previously, he mentioned that “this is the way to fight the boredom: to see something new in the regular surroundings.”
After being asked whether the artist also incorporates ideas suggested by other people, he replied that he has no strict rules. “I take notes regularly and can get an idea for a future drawing. Some ideas are offered to me by close people or followers on Instagram. If the idea seems good to me, then I will gladly try to translate it into a drawing.”
We’ve noticed that Anton shares many submitted stories of real-life ‘yes, buts’ on Instagram, so we got curious about how this connection with his followers makes the creator feel. Anton replied that he got excited about this. “I like that the format has become international, and many of the ideas sent in are absurdly creative. I like that the format is reflected in real life.”
