Chaz Hutton, a 32-year-old Australian based in London, knows this all too well. He illustrates the surprises, disappointments, and hard truths of adulthood in stick-figure form through Post-it notes he then Instagrams.
"They started as just a thing I'd send to friends on a group chat, then after a few months those friends convinced me to start an Instagram, which I assured them was a terrible idea, and that nothing would come of it," Hutton told Business Insider in an email.
His insights have been so popular that he's stopped working as an architect to pursue the project full-time.
"It's been amazing," he said. "The comments are probably the one thing about it, and largely the reason I've bothered keeping it up! Although it's becoming harder to explain to people what exactly it is I do for a living."
