You Look Better Online

Your Life in 150 Unfiltered Cartoons



ISBN: 9781419726408 Category:

Emmet Truxes


From the lofts of New York City to the traffic jams of LA and beyond – Emmet Truxes’s cartoons brilliantly poke fun at our hobbies and misfortunes in a vein similar to that of the New Yorker. Featuring all-too-relatable depictions of millennial milestones and struggles (squeezing into cramped apartments, finding true love on dating apps, nailing the perfect selfie), You Look Better Online is full of self-deprecating good fun for anyone obsessed with their smartphone. You Look Better Online does what only the best cartoons can: it gently chides its audience while insightfully and accurately depicting their lives.

Emmet Truxes, the mastermind behind the Instagram account @BrooklynCartoons, is all too familiar with the absurdities and idiosyncrasies of the millennial age. Raised in Connecticut, with degrees from both Princeton and Harvard, this architectural visionary by day is also an expert observer: from New York to Los Angeles, he stockpiles the definitive moments of the Snapchat generation and turns them into meme-ready cartoons.
