These Are Not Really Cartoons,

but great illustrations,

 by a Japanese illustrator who goes by the pseudonym Yamada Zenjidou, who creates these simple illustrations of everyday life, each are drawn in a style inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints and feature an anachronistic setting: men and women seemingly from an ancient time, engaged in incredibly relatable moments of modern everyday life, the one above titled, 'That disappointment when you spot a fancy cafe but it turns out to be a beauty salon',

 'That feeling when you want the free sample but pretend you totally don’t want it'

 'When “now with 10% more” doesn’t make you feel any happier'

'When you’re looking at your reflection in the glass and realise there’s someone on the other side' you can see more on Instagram, but you have to have a slight understanding of written Japanese.
