i spent 5 years illustrating 250 first world problems, meanwhile taylor swift stole my name

bez-imeni-1

I was at the bedside of my sick friend at the hospital. She was not getting any better.

A moment later I was in the cafeteria. Looking for something to drink. But I couldn’t find that soda I had noticed in the ads.

It was sold out. I clenched my teeth, cursed and stamp on the floor. But hey – did I cry over soda water?

Yeah, sure I did. And that was where my blog idea was born. Since then I have illustrated about 250 first world problems for people all over the world.

How does it work? People send me their problems, I let my followers vote on which one I shall pick, then I draw.

In 2016 I discovered that Taylor Swift used my name, Nils Sjöberg, as a pseudonym when writing pop songs with Calvin Harris. Definitely a first world problem. I illustrated it and it went crazy viral. In 2017 Taylor Swift buried me in her new video. I illustrated it again. And once again it went viral.

In September the blog turns five years and that’s about it, the time has come to move on with another project.

Until then, I will keep illustrating first world problems and would be happy to receive more suggestions.
