John Matta's Napkins Feature Quips About Modern Life

Illustrator John Matta has just posted some of his hilarious napkin doodles, which until recently had remained private. Each of his napkin artworks displays a little cartoon with a tongue-in-cheek (and often pun-filled) approach to contemporary life.

One of the funniest of Matta's creations features a serial killer that looks uncannily like Jason from the Friday the 13th franchise, holding his infamous machete. Matta's caption reads: "Serial killer advice #14: When choosing a murder weapon, make sure it doesn't have a bell on the end." Another cartoon shows a guy looking pretty pensive, while thinking, "The voices in my head just got a dog. Now how are they going to go away on the weekends?"

These comical and quirky approaches to pop culture and everyday life prove that art can have a humorous side. Hopefully John Matta will continue to create his napkin cartoons, tackling everyone from literary figures to fictional serial killers.
