Good ol' James Kochalka. He draws himself and his wife like elves, but his son like a human, and his friends like monsters or animals.
He's been doing daily comic strips for a thousand years or so, and they're really great. If you read just one of them you sort of go, "meh, it was cute, whatever". It's the whole work of them together that's amazing. His website's archives are only available to those who subscribe, so I buy the books instead. And they're so good, so very very good. If you know of any comic who does daily strips, I can (for the most part) assure you they got the idea from James.
I read James Kochalka when I feel like shit for being a human being. I start to feel good again, and that my imperfections and the imperfect world around me are more beautiful for being so. James works better than Vodka or therapy for me. He will always have a place in my heart and on my bookshelves and if I believed in God, I'd put in a good word to him about good ol' Mr. Kochalka.
