The Awkward Yeti

A project by Nick Seluk

Three characters, metaphorically inspired by the concept of the Id — Heart —, the Ego — Lars — and the Superego — Brain —, even if they have developed their own personalities over time. This is The Awkward Yeti, or multiple series by cartoonist Nick Seluk. The ongoing self-titled strip follows Lars the yeti as he experiences everyday social awkwardness at work, in his social life, even while dating. The popular spinoff, Heart and Brain, follow the inner dialogue between the cynical, society-influenced Brain and the impulsive, optimistic Heart.

Originally based on a terrible painting, The Awkward Yeti starred in his own self-published children’s book of the same title in late 2012. His creator left his job as a senior graphic designer in December 2014 to do The Yeti full time.

Nick has always loved drawing, especially cartoons, because he finds it’s the best way to explain what he has going on in his head. In school, he used to draw cartoons that represented concepts in his notebooks, and those were always the ones that stuck with him. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Central Michigan University, but finds he learns better on his own.

He lives in Michigan with his wife, three kids, and a very awkward dog.
