Sometimes we don’t notice the simple moments that make our life so freaking awesome or just take granted the joy of our daily life unless we see them turned into an art, this is when we start admiring it and well, appreciating it.
Los Angeles-based artist Yaoyao Ma Van As’s illustrations are just made for admiring and appreciating the joy of living alone, well not exactly alone, alone with a dog and the piece and the mess that makes it all so beautiful.
Most of the illustrations reveal the everyday routine, the girl working while the dog’s still asleep, doing the laundry together, taking walks, chilling, being playful together, or just relaxing. These moments really remind us that we are still alive and that there is so much beauty in the most common things if we just have the time to notice and be grateful for them.
With her series of lively illustrations, the artist proves that living alone does not mean being lonely, moreover when you have the best companion to share your day with. Check out the photos that perfectly portray the overlooked joy of living along with your four-legged best buddy.
