Polish illustrator and animator Jaroslaw Danilenko is living up to the tough task he and his friend and fellow illustrator Michal Loba set themselves: to, between them, unfailingly post a drawing a day to their Tumblr. And these aren’t rushed, tired scribbles, but wonderfully strange and engaging artworks.

Four months and many drawings later, it’s a lovely scroll through the pair’s Tumblr, whether it's a still-life glimpse of the every day, a bizarre, fun collage or a cool, despondent look at humans doing silly things to themselves (I can relate). Check out the Tumblr if you want a wider look at Jaroslaw’s – and Michal’s – style.

Confined to squares and with their use of simple shapes, Jaroslaw’s illustrations are comic-like in more ways than one. Alive with action, they almost seem lifted from an engrossing strip or story, leaving us to fill in the rest of the plot. I can’t be the only one that feels like the characters are staring directly at me, aggressively, as if I’ve interrupted their story.

Here, we've collected the best of Jaroslaw's and Michal's illustrations.
