Illustrator Created These Cartoon Characters Navigating Life In 17 Comics

The world is full of unexpected turns, especially for college grads and millennials hustling to figure out what life is up to. And this is the feeling illustrator Jon Youshaei knows too well.

“As a first-generation American who landed a job at Google, I wanted to share all the advice, lessons, and up-and-down feelings I learned while navigating life as a young professional.

“I turned to my childhood passion of cartoons, and the comic Every Vowel was born.

“In Every Vowel, the characters are alphabet letters. The hero is the letter Y, and he works at Vowels, Inc., where his colleagues are A, E, I, O, and U. Sometimes, Y feels like one of the vowels. Other times, he doesn’t. Like most Generation Y millennials, he struggles to define his identity.”

Down below, you can see 17 inspiring and almost too real cartoons that millennials in their first job can relate to. Enjoy!
