The homeless FML

Ever wonder what the homeless guy down the street is hiding? You've seen him walking strangely, drink weird stuff and talk even if nobody is there to listen. You probably think he's just crazy, but don't be that square, and think about it. Maybe he has a lot of secrets he's hiding from the whole wide world: he walks strangely, like a werewolf, he drinks weird stuff like a vampire, and he talks even if no one is listening to him, like Kanye West. But above all, he lives in the dark and you never see him like... a ninja.

-Let's start today's interview with our lovely artist. What's your name and surname?
-Ileana Surducan

-How old are you?
-I'm 23 years old.

-Where do you live?
-In Cluj-Napoca, Transilvania, Romania (don't you DARE mention vampires)


-(Can we mention Vampire Diaries? No? Ok.) What do you do for a living?
-I earn money from book illustration (but not a lot of money).  I'm still a student (if that's an excuse).

-What's your story?
-On a dark, stormy night, far far away in the heart of dark Transylvania, a girl was born... *lighting followed by thunder* - skip 23 years and...Well, I'm just about to finish my master degree in Ceramics at the Art and Design University, in Cluj-Napoca. Haven't got a job yet and, with any luck, I'll get to be a successful freelancer (in illustration, comics, ceramics and animation!).



-What are your projects?
-I'm working on a comics book (graphic novel?) to be published by the Makaka Editons. It will be the Diary of a Chair Tamer (like a lion tamer, but with chairs :D), about a Circus and about The Unknown Things. This is currently my biggest project!


-How can you be that talented?
-I was bitten by a talent bug when I was little. A mutant ninja talent bug!


-Can you tell us about your blog/website?
-It started on a dark stormy night... naaah, forget it. I started my blog about the time I started making comics for 30joursdeBD. People kept asking for a link to my blog, so I quickly made one! I post there my work - comics, illustrations, ceramics... And there are some nice people who leave nice comments, and that makes me very happy.


-What inspires you?
-I'm inspired by artists like Shaun Tan and Frédéric Clément, but also people like Kate Beaton,  Johane Matte or Evan Dahm. Also authors like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Michael Ende or Terry Pratchett. As for films - I'm very interested in animations: I love the work of Studio Ghibli, Cartoon Saloon, some of Disney's, and most recently Dream Works with How to train your dragon.


-What makes you laugh the most?
-Imagining my thank you speech for the my Nobel Award (for comics and World Peace).


-Why did you choose this FML?
-I chose this story because it immediately inspired me to draw a very dynamic comic. Also, ninjas are awesome.




We couldn't agree more! Multumesc for your illustration Ileana!

If you want to be the next published artist, send an email to alice [at] fmylife.com including a link to your website/blog/DA. But DON'T send your illustration right away! You need first to get in touch with Alice (no, I'm not your aunt) who will tell you what you have to do!
