Illustrator and writer Austin Light is having fun with stock photos, a classic internet pastime. There are plenty of sensible, useful, and accurate stock photos out there, though I have personally never seen any. Light picks the weirdest ones, then adds an illustration to try and make sense of it. The results are mixed in terms of making sense, but they definitely look very cool.

Once again, the people in this photo are much weirder than the animal:
But this is a scene that anyone with a cat can relate to:
Cats are always trying to kill you while you’re doing household chores!
