Story of My Life

Story of My Life
Alex Hinders, 2013.
Colored pencil and pen.

Sometimes a person will complain about something, like how their dog won’t stop barking at night, or how the bus is always earl when they’re late, and so on. The other person in the conversation, who has also encountered this problem, will casually reply, “Story of my life.” The phrase seems to suggest that their life is a long story involving dogs that bark at night and missing the bus. While this may or may not be an accurate statement, it’s generally not to be taken literally. We can assume that many other things have in fact happened over the course of their time on Earth.

This drawing is not actually ‘the story of my life’, as that’s a long tale that, in general, doesn’t involve random flying shapes. Story of my life.
