Chris Guillebeau is a writer who has a blog (and book) called 'The Art of Non-Conformity'. He says he's all about "advancing the vision of unconventional living," and "connecting with amazing people all over the world."
A few years back, he wrote a blog post titled 'How to be Unremarkably Average', which included advice like "Surround yourself with people who think like you," "Spend money on things you don't want but will help you impress others," and "Attend useless meetings."
It's a bracing bit of reverse psychology.
Late last year, artist Gavin Aung Than turned the spirit of that post into a comic strip, '11 Ways to be Unremarkably Average', which he published on his Zen Pencils site.
The strip shows one man's entire life, beginning with his birth (out of a machine labelled "Society") and ending with a (pretty mean) gravestone.
You may feel a twinge of recognition when you look at some of these panels - but that's kind of the point.
The ultimate message of both the original blog post and the strip is right there at the end: "You don't have to live your life the way other people expect you to."
