When you browse the internet you can’t miss comics, and the best thing is that they come in all shapes and sizes. However, if you’re looking for something that can instantly lift your mood, we highly recommend cat comics! It is a well known fact that cats make everything seem more dramatic than it really is and having one is both a blessing and a curse at times.
Today we will present the ironic comics of the artist Ellen, who started making comics about her daily life when we had our first confinement due to Covid-19. Ellen started out doing normal comics, but little by little, her cat also crept in and she pretty much became the star of all her ideas.
Bored Panda reached out to Ellen to find out a little more about her and her comics.
“Well, I’ve been making art since I was a little kid, and while I was in lockdown I had more time to focus on creating a series of comics. We had also adopted a cat and I became obsessed with drawing his silly expressions! I was originally quite nervous to share my art but my family gave me the boost I needed I thought people might need to laugh during this pandemic and I wanted to help people smile so it took off!
As we mentioned earlier, Ellen’s comics tackle all sorts of situations, but most of them involve her tabby cat. The artist’s comics portray situations such as working from home with a cat (who always tries to show off on camera during a Zoom call) or even placing Christmas decorations around the house while waiting for them to be destroyed by the powerful feline’s claws.
We also take the opportunity to ask Ellen more questions. First, we asked the artist if she had any life-changing influences on her that might have helped her art and art style in general when it came to her comics.
“My influences in life are my friends and family, they have always encouraged me to create art and are very supportive! Art wise I am a huge fan of Gorillaz artist Jamie Hewlett and the guys at Penny Arcade really influenced my style (it was the first webcomic I ever saw in my life).”
