With their endearing three-panel comic strips featuring a charmingly "badly drawn blob" character, Alex Norris, the talented artist behind the viral 'Webcomic Name' series, has captured the hearts of internet users worldwide, taking us on a hilarious journey through life's disappointments. The undeniable appeal of Alex's collection lies in the humorously awkward take on life's struggles. The comics masterfully recreate scenarios that are painfully familiar, instantly uniting readers through shared experiences. From grappling with personal space issues to navigating gender perceptions and even contending with cats blocking computers, the iconic blob character faces everyday challenges with an amusingly disastrous outcome, culminating in its trademark punchline, "Oh no."
'Webcomic Name' not only serves as a parody of the self-aware negativity often found on the internet but also collectively addresses the social issue of gender perception. Alex portrays the blob character as more than just male, female, or genderless, instead embracing a multitude of identities, representing a concept they aptly describe as "gender." This approach adds an additional layer of relatability to the character, making the blob the epitome of universal understanding. As you delve into the whimsical world of the "badly drawn blob," get ready for countless chuckles, relatable moments, and an ever-present "oh no" that will leave you eagerly awaiting the next hilariously calamitous installment.

As Alex shares on the "Oh No" website, 'Webcomic Name' initially began as a gag comic, gaining significant traction when the series officially launched in the summer of 2016. "It exploded almost instantly, and I feel massively grateful for all the people who want to join me on my quest to make the same joke over and over again," Alex shared.
Although Alex has been honing their drawing and illustrating skills since the age of 10, Alex's foray into creating funny comics full-time began after university. With an unwavering passion for their craft, Alex made the 'oh no' comics their main focus, eschewing other job prospects. "Since graduating, these 'oh no' comics have always been my main focus because I haven't wanted to do any other job," Alex confessed, though acknowledging the occasional side jobs to make ends meet.
Their first webcomic, Dorris McComics, served as an experimental platform, allowing Alex to push the boundaries of short-form comics, constantly breaking the form and exploring various styles of punchlines.
