Brecht Vandenbroucke’s Humorous Illustrations Draw Attention to Societal Pitfalls

Brecht Vandenbroucke is an artist, illustrator, and comic based in Belgium. In the most satirical way possible, Vandenbroucke uses his imagination to portray the common pitfalls and dualities of modern humanity. His work might make you laugh. His work also might force you to take a look at yourself in the mirror momentarily before you remember that your gas tank is almost empty and you just filled it up two days ago. Either way, there’s always a message in Vandenbroucke’s work, along with a frank remnant or symbol of how we live our lives and interact (or lack of) with other humans.

Vandenbroucke has a knack for initiating social commentary and playing upon human error throughout his humorous artwork. Whether he’s drawing about the often overlooked populations of the homeless in metropolitan cities or referencing a shady b*tch who can’t stop taking selfies, Vandenbroucke doesn’t hold back. You won’t find complicated images either. His human illustrations are quite easy to look at and understand with a myriad of colors and clothes that feel familiar.
