Welcome to the home of the Misery Men!

The what now?

Haven’t you heard of them?


Full catalog: 1–50, 51–100

Okayyy, let’s see.

It started as an NFT art series.

No need to overthink it.

There are Telegram stickers.

There’s an Instagram to follow.

They’re drawn by @sangsara, a person not known for being able to draw.

Hang on.


What’s the concept?

How do you mean?

Like, I need a backstory.

One of those manifesto things? I’ll give it a go!

Misery Men is a collection of uniquely despondent artworks about the comedy and suffering of human existence. The genesis of each hand-drawn piece is a single structural stroke balanced with an opposite tear, like a slip in a puddle followed by a slap in the face. Amateur doodling then imparts unique character to every work.

A Misery Man is stubbing your toe in the dark; losing your family in a gangland hit; falling for a scam on Telegram; your ex on the cover of Bloomberg Businessweek after you spent years helping them with their startup without pay but deleted the relevant emails during a turbulent breakup you barely remember; forgetting your grandmother’s face; catching yourself humming along to Coldplay; an iPhone dying after AppleCare+ expires; a tin of anchovies that sends olive oil all over the bed when opened; being sad enough that you eat anchovies in bed some afternoons…

Whatever your pain, they can be your face to the world.

Alright, I’ll buy that.
