Review: Our Ever Improving Room

Overview: Kevin Budnik challenged himself to write a 4 panel diary entry for 366 days. What we see is a glimpse into Kevin’s life, full of heart, anxiety, and a good look at the every day goings on of another human.

Pros: Kevin’s art is simple, yet extremely efficient. The year he has shown us is often touching, sometimes sad, and forces the reader to look at their own life.

Cons: Occasionally, an entry feels like it is without context and should be part of something larger.

Good For: People who enjoy autobiography and are looking for some inspiration for cathartic release. Fans of cartooning.
