Never Be My Friend

When I'm bored, I browse through my friends' Facebook images, choose my favorites, and draw them.

Sometimes I take... liberties. Let's just call it artistic license.

R.I.P. Chloe's grandma. I wasn't aware you were an actual corpse 
when I drew you looking like a corpse.

I occasionally wonder why I still have friends at all.

And no, Michael Cera is not my friend on Facebook.

Yet.

    Poor Michael Cera. You really don't like his nose...

    ReplyDelete
  4. I love that you changed most of the tattoos to blah blah blah or whatever! hahaha
    Love and Turtledoves,
    Jacqueline

    ReplyDelete
  5. can i just say i find it mildly disturbing with a side of amusement that you put such emphasis on your friend's junk when you drew the dude in the plaid shorts.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I wish you'd draw me!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Amaaazing lol. I wish you would draw me. XD Sounds creepy..but yes.

  11. Your friend count is about to deplete by 18 people but it's okay, it was for the sake of comedy.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm 100% certain I had that music box that got turned into a gun box when I was a kid.
    Also I am super jealous of your friends.

    ReplyDelete
  20. These are absolutely amazing. This makes me want a drawing but I am afraid of what it would be! Great work :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I feel really creepy for bringing this up, but I saw most of these on Reddit months ago. Awww, now I just made myself sad thinking about how much time I spend on Reddit.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's some pretty funny art! love it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is an incredible likeness of Michael Cera. Bravo.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hey Adam! Every time I read your comics it always brightens my day. I write deployed soldiers and always imagine how much better my ridiculous stories would be if only I could draw them like how you draw yours!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ivy League finals? Fuckit. Ima read booksofadam.

    ReplyDelete
  26. whenever i order Taco Bell my head reasons with me "you should just throw it in the toilet 'cause that's where it's going to end up anyways."

    but then i eat it anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Seriously, you are hysterical and fantastic. You're hysteritastic.

  44. Please do more of these! They're hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  45. True story. I check your blog every day, comment on each post.. aka a big fan.

    After checking your website, I went to one of my other favorite websites... REDDIT. Imagine my joy when I saw you on the front page!

    Continued Redditing, opened a stumbleupon tab to deal with my rampaging ADD, and the first thing I stumbled upon WAS YOUR BLOG.

    The internet clearly wants me to marry you.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In conclusion, charge like $5 a pic to draw people's facebook profiles.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Would like to take a crack at http://www.facebook.com/tom.dempsey?

  57. like many others. I too would love for you to draw me. I like your stile and your 'artistic license'

    keep it up :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Really though, how DO you still have friends? Most of mine don't appreciate brutal honesty or artistic license...or my Rude Tourettes. You have all the luck.

    ReplyDelete

  71. These drawings are so creative and hilarious! I enjoyed looking at them. Keep up the good work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. this makes me want to find you on facebook and force you to be my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  73. OH wait...DON'T be your friend? Well gee this is awkward...if you get a package at your door wrapped in human flesh...just throw it away..

    ReplyDelete
  74. I must be blind...

    ReplyDelete
  75. I feel like you saw that guy who photoshopped his friends face a tiny pit in each picture and decided to draw people instead.

    Either way, having already seen that took away from this.

    ReplyDelete
  76. i literally just laughed for 5 minutes over the grandma one. brilliant. nonetheless, im glad we arent friends.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Having grown up in central Montana I agree that most people can not appreciate what Montana is. However, having moved to Chicago, I love telling people about plugging rigs in at night and seeing the blank stare they give me with no comprehension of what I am talking about. Oh and I remember when Montana didn't have a speed limit.

    ReplyDelete
  78. This is beautiful. Let us know when we can submit facebooks to the open pool of face art destruction for Books of Adam. I call first.

    ReplyDelete
  79. i just love your comics!!! so hilar!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Good burger! :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. This is awesome.


    & really cute. <3

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is the best shit I've ever stumbled upon. I love it. I'd be honored if you'd draw me!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. LMAO!!!! Man, you made my day. It must be so satisfying drawing people as ugly as possible

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love your point of view!! All the cartoons seem to come from the same world and the characterizations of the cartoons from the photos is genius!! Please, use these as inspiration for the next 15-minutes super comedy on Adult Swim!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. i was hooked from the first picture of that awful little girl... haha

    ReplyDelete
  86. Very nice comics! 'Future diarrhea' -- ooh, i loved it! Also the posing dude's drawing made me point at my screen [pointless, i know] and laugh hysterically!!


    First time reading your stories. Funny indeed! :D
    But i think i read that you don't update much. Maybe i will write a story about how you just ruined my day, make some drawings and send it to you.
    The drawings and my use of the english language will probably ruin your day too, which will make us even. :P

    ReplyDelete
  87. I really like that you don't worry about being nice. I'm always so concerned about what people think I don't think I could ever be so cheeky. Good stuff :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. these are amazing. you win

    ReplyDelete
  89. dude wtf, you've posted most of the those in the past - haven't you ?

    ReplyDelete
  90. much more better that photos~bro

    ReplyDelete
  91. I like the "artistic ability that you took", little changes made a total difference, my favorite is the gun in the music box.

    ReplyDelete
  92. This is Brilliant, very good idea, keep it up, and make it an exhibition!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh these are amazing 1 I want one :D

    ReplyDelete
  94. hey assholes: she said she does this when she's bored. aka in her FREE TIME. and she's probably not getting paid, so stop asking her to draw your dumb ugly faces. youre all strangers anyway, she couldnt care less. these are her FRIENDS. probably REAL LIFE friends, not a bunch of weirdos who are asking her to marry them.

    ReplyDelete
  95. or he. didnt read enough to find out this person's sex. consider it tl;dr at this point. just skipped straight to the art.

    ReplyDelete
  96. How is Harold Camping not on here?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Mr. Adam is your friend with the glasses and plaid shorts related to Sneaky Phoebe?

    Your mastery over expressions is inspiring, as is your artistic liberty. Personally I'd be a bit scared but also curious to see how I'd appear if drawn by you. I already look like a scrawny cracked out twelve year-old you see

    ReplyDelete
  98. That is just HILARIOUS!! can we be friends so you can draw me? just sayin :P

    ReplyDelete
  99. Gosh, Hilary Clinton sure does look a lot like Michael Cera.

    ReplyDelete
  107. these are brilliant. I wish you could draw mee!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Who knew Michael Cera was actually ray ramano?

    ReplyDelete
  109. your style is really professional and they look good, but I think you also need to develop a way to not make everyone look really horrible with your pictures as well

    ReplyDelete
  110. awesome!!!! found this a couple days ago and I can't stop laughing

    ReplyDelete
  111. That's awesome. Stumbled on stumbleupon, I really like them...all of them.

  117. Yeah, you titled this "never be my friend," but I've never found myself wanting so badly to be facebook friends with someone. THANKS.

    Really, though, that's an excellent tip. I need drawing practice, especially people, and this gives me a fun way to go about it. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  142. This made me snort when I laughed, but I don't think I have the guts to have you draw me... at the same time, I am SO tempted to pay you my $20 to make me look like someone who is blissfully unawares that they are severely disabled. This is not sarcasm. It should be, but it's not.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I come back a few hours later to show my boyfriend these portraits and realized you made Michael Cera look like Ray Romano.

    ReplyDelete
  144. This is really awesome, my sister does something similar, but with her school mates, haha...Great!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Seriously you should make these people into a cartoon for FOX or better yet Adult Swim on cartoon network!! I'd totally watch this!!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Any interest in drawing a web-comic for absolutely no money? Seriously.
