PETA we are sorry about today's comic. Yes it involves cats being farted on but it's not what it's really about. What it's all about is the French resistance during the Hundred Years' war. It's about how Frank Epperson invented the Popsicle by leaving his soda with a stick in it, outside on the porch, one cold cold night. Today's comic is about Justin Bieber's hair.
No we're kidding, it's just about a cat being farted on.
What's your name and surname?
-My name is Aleksandra 'Adelaida' Chabros.
How old are you?
Where do you live?
I live in Radom, Poland, Europe.
What do you do for a living?
I have recently finished university (MA in Art) and right now I mostly make illustrations to children's books.
What's your story?
I always loved to draw. When I was little my parents took me to an art school and it was a bit of pain - painting all those still lives when I had so many fantastic ideas in my mind. I've treated creating as a hobby until the end of a high school and then I suddenly thought I might find a way for it to become my life career. And if not, I at least wanted to be taught to make art properly. So I went to Art University. It was where all the fun started. I've learnt almost everything I know there :)
What are your projects?
My projects are book illustrations mostly. But I have an author collection of children's stationery too! With fluffy animals :)
How can you be that talented?
It was a lot of hard work! :) In my family talent comes from my dad - he has got artistic soul but he has never been taught how to use it. However, me and my 2 sisters know it exactly. I am the one children's-and-cute oriented, my younger sister is an architect and my youngest sister shows a lot of abilities for sculpting.
Can you tell us about your blog/website?
I started my blog in 2008 in a hope to show there more things that I do, more than can be shown in my DeviantArt gallery. Fabulous Blog (that's its name) is a place to show sketches, photos of my works in progress and my everyday life - it's a way of knowing me better through things I do. 3 years and almost 300 posts later I still try to keep this idea up.
What inspires you?
Everything can inspire me. But when I'm in a great need of an inspiration I usually read books, go to a bookstore or to a cafe for a cup of Latte. It always helps. And when I feel totally down I go to Pu?awy - a small town where I was born. It has got a great park area known for its beauty in the whole country.
What makes you laugh the most?
Silly things make me laugh, like pictures of cats and humans' dumbness.
Why did you choose this FML?
Because I love cats :)
Do you have your own FML anecdote that you can share us?
I would have one but it's too stupid and embarrassing to share not anonymously :D
