Nick Galifianakis
relationship cartoonist & author

Everyone knows the only thing more painful than relationships is not having them–or is it the other way around? Whatever, says author and cartoonist and Nick Galifianakis. In his first book, If You Loved Me, You’d Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You, he makes the case that either way, the only recourse is to embrace our frailties and laugh.

Taken from Carolyn Hax’s nationally syndicated advice column, this collection of illustrations spins the pain of dating, mothers-in-law, “beneficial” friends, and more into humor we all can use, whether we like it or not. With searing and astute observations on life, love, relationships, and pet camaraderie, If You Loved Me, You’d Think This Was Cute features Nick Galifianakis’ intricate black-and-white drawings paired with his biting wit and a pointed message: If we can’t laugh at ourselves, he’ll do it for us. These are uncomfortable, but true, cartoons about you.
