This artist makes posters out of people’s negative online reviews of national parks

People have been complaining about the glorious national parks across the US online and the bad reviews are being turned into art. We must say, the results are spectacular.

There’s nothing better than laughing at people’s one-star reviews online. The sheer entertainment you get from a middle aged woman complaining that her vacuum isn’t powerful enough in an essay-length life story is incomparable to watching that one Netflix show, again.

What better thing to do than to take hilariously bad online reviews and turn them into poster art, and graphic illustrator Amber Share has done just that.

Graphic Illustrator Amber Share has turned one-star reviews of America’s national parks and turned them into brilliant works of art.

Perhaps the most viral of all the posters was one of Yellowstone National Park, with a Yelp reviewer writing, “The one thing that makes this place different from other parks is the geysers. I was extremely underwhelmed. They look SO much better in the pictures.

If you want a similar look just boil a pot of water at home. Honestly though, save yourself some money and boil some water at home.”


Don’t you just hate it when trees and rocks block your view of the great and vast outdoors? One reviewer of Yosemite National Park said just that.

Please get a more sophisticated color palette and do something about all these trees, @yosemitenps. 1 star.

Now, here’s a few that can be referred to as the ‘eye-roll series’.

“For the next 61 weeks, I’ll be sharing an illustration of each of America’s lovely national parks, along with a line from a real 1-star review of that park,” Amber Share posted on Instagram. “Because apparently even mother nature is subject to the wrath of the Internet.”
