Japanese Artist Keigo Illustrates 30 Hilarious Everyday Problems Of A Sloth

Sloths are such fascinating creatures. It’s almost impossible not to be captivated by these cute animals’ seemingly smiling face. Such is the case with Japanese artist Keigo who has created a series of funny sloth drawings. You all know for sure that sloths are famous for knowing how to take things nice and slow. Like, really slow. So, just imagine what would happen if sloths live like humans in the human world? Well, check out Keigo’s works and see the answers for yourself. They’re equally heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time!

But before we poke fun at these sloths’ amusing traits, here are a few surprising facts about them. Sloths are actually great swimmers despite being clumsy on land. And contrary to popular belief, they only sleep for about ten hours per day. You probably didn’t see that one coming.

However, since their diet consists mostly of leaves, sloths only have minimal energy at their disposal. This is the primary reason behind their relatively slow movement. But what’s truly impressive is the fact that sloths can live up to 40 years! Wow, sloths are indeed full of surprises. It’s easy to see why these adorable creatures have captured the heart of Keigo.

“Using the sloth as the main character, I am interested in how to visualize the concept of “time” in a single piece of art.”

Keigo’s illustrations mostly feature personified animals which, in turn, gives his works a touch of humor. Aside from sloths, the artist also delights in drawing other animals with notable characteristics. For instance, giraffes with long necks and crocodiles with long snouts. He then wittily comes up with real-life conundrums that these animals experience because of such physical features. Well, perhaps they also experience the same thing in their own worlds. We’ll never know.

K5fuwa, Keigo’s Instagram handle, has over 930,000 followers to date. He’s even made a name for himself globally. Nonetheless, he still considers himself “an ordinary office worker who lives an ordinary life with his wife and daughter.” And according to him, he plans to keep drawing funny animal pictures unless his wife tells him to stop. The illustrator also revealed how social media has been a great help to him in promoting his works.

“I can’t make friends at all, but through social media, I have gained the support of many fans and finally I have been able to publish my own books.”

Keigo has successfully published his book in three countries in Asia. His next goal is to publish one in the United States soon.
