Barbra Millicent Roberts feat. FML

Did you or do you own a Barbie? We hope you do, because it's one of the best fashion dolls on earth. Face it, life in plastic is fantastic. You can brush her hair, undress her everywhere... wait, undress her? Thinking about it, Barbie is kind of hot. Well, if you like the 38-18-34 body measurements. It's funny to see how things  change from the moment you grow older. As a kid you thought she was a doll as well as your best friend, but now you're all grown up you can't stop thinking how seedy she looks. Just like we do, she seems to have become pretty mature all of a sudden. A myth just died.

What's your name and surname?
Emily Yulon Chan (or EyChan)

How old are you?
Twenty Four since last Christmas.

Where do you live?
Los Angeles, California. 

What do you do for a living?
By day, I'm your typical office employee stuck in front of a computer and surrounded by never-ending paperwork. But by night, I am a dark and evil villain whose name shall never be revealed*.

*...I'm a freelance artist.


What's your story?
I've lived in and around Los Angeles all my life until I moved out to school in San Diego (UCSD) for three years and studied art. Now, I'm back at where I started!


 

What are your projects?
I am currently working on my personal webcomic, "StupidFox", which I may retire from this year. I am also working on Diana Falzone's (G4's Attack of the Show, Cosmo Radio, and Maxim magazine) webcomic, "Hot Mess", which can be read at HotMessComic.com. ... I also make a lot of product/packaging designs for "Viagara" supplements, but that's another story :)

Can you tell us about your blog/website?
www.EyChan.org
is a [very] small portfolio of my work. (Why I chose ".org" at the time, I have no idea.) My comics and other casual work however, can be seen through my DeviantArt (silentreaper.deviantart.com).

What inspires you?
Only music can really get me to draw. However, to inspire me, it has to be my favorite song or genre. When I get tired of those songs, inspiration fails me and I'm unable to draw. This is why I constantly need to find new music every month or so to keep them in stock.

What makes you laugh the most?
I laugh to almost anything and everything I think is ridiculous or funny. So I'm not sure what makes me laugh the most in particular.

Why did you choose this FML?

This FML reminded me that I had been wanting to make a commentary on how kids this generation are influenced by media. In this case, the media had created a "Prostitot".

Do you have your own FML anecdote that you can share us?

I was lurking around Facebook when I discovered that the bully/enemy that tormented me during my childhood was a mutual friend
of my boyfriend. FML

Lots of hugs and kisses to you Emily! Thank you for your illustration, we are true BFFs now <3 !

FML socks

Are you single? Because if so, we would like to tell you all about a brand new concept which can be your next love relationship. Or at least, physical relationship. Do you have feet? Great. Do you have shoes? Wonderful! Do you have socks? Yes? Okay, you now know what you have to do with it. It's simple, subtle and customizable. Like Crocs.

-What's your name and surname?
-Just "Jen".

-How old are you?
-Ahahaha I'd rather not say, I'm irrationally shy about that.

-Where do you live?
-New York.


-What do you do for a living?
-I'm a web designer and freelance illustrator.


-What's your story?
-Well, I love drawing cartoons and doing illustrations, which then eventually bled into design and layouts and UI, and that's what started me down my current career path. Design by day, illustration by night :)

 

-What are your projects?
-Web sites, print, web games, online advertisements, pamphlets... you name it. 

 

-How can you be that talented?
-I ... play too many video games and watch too many cartoons haha.  I also have messed up friends.

 

-Can you tell us about your blog/website? (How did it started, etc..)
-It just started as a fun place I liked to toss up artwork to share with others, make people laugh, etc.  And I just keep drawing, so I keep updating!


 
-What inspires you (artists, movies, etc..)?
-Artists:  Joe Madureira, Dan Schoenig, Francisco Herrera, etc.
And I'm constantly inspired by various video games, movies, cartoons and comics.  I just like dynamic, lively art, anything with life to it and solid character design.

 

-What makes you laugh the most?
-People doing REALLY stupid things, and funny noises.  Especially when associated with people doing REALLY stupid things.


-Why did you choose this FML?
-Because it was simultaneously funny, cute, sad, gross and pathetic all at once.  I also like drawing socks.

 

-Do you have your own FML anecdote that you can share us?
-Not... at the minute, but give me a few days ;) 

 

Just hit the "spill the beans" button when you have a great FML you want to share with us. And thank you for your participation!

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!

The FML exam

So, what about your exams? Are you sure you worked hard enough? You didn't spend the last few weeks checking the internet for American Idol's new judges, right? You did work a bit, come on, did you really? REALLY, DID YOU REALLY? Ok, great, we believe you, you're now able to fully enjoy today's illustration and article. We're spoiling you, and we're not sure you totally deserve it. Here goes anyway:

 

-What's your name and surname?
-My nickname is Megumi and I do not know its origin.

-How old are you?
-21 years old.

-Where do you live?
-I live in Taiwan.

-What do you do for a living?
-Currently I'm still a student, but I'll graduate next year. I'm doing a specialisation in design and drawing.

-What's your story?
- I love painting since I'm a child so I chose a high school and a university where I could draw. In College I had the chance to get to know how to draw on a computer and I totally loved it. Plus, I now have the Internet and it's a real chance because I get to know a lot of other artistes and their styles. It's really improving.

-What are your projects?
-My goal is to become an art illustrator.


-How can you be that talented?
-I just really want to be able to express myself. But for now I don't think my style is good enough so I just keep practicing every day until I'll be completely satisfied.

-Can you tell us about your blog/website?
-I started writting my blog when I was in high school, back then it was very popular among my friends. Now I'm thrilled that people from all over the world are able to know my work.

 

-What inspires you?
-Life in general, and by some song's melodies.

-What makes you laugh the most?
-To be honest, my laughs are uncontrollable. I can laugh for months because of a silly thing.


-Why did you choose this FML?
-Aha! I felt so connected with that poor person I had to work on it!

 

Duo xiè for your illustration Megumi!

The Skins European FMLs day

Today, it's European FMLs day. We will be publishing the best European FMLs, picked by the cast of Skins, which was originally a European TV show, to celebrate the fact that the US version of Skins is premiered tonight on MTV. We've also asked Danny Flaherty who plays Stanley, a lazy, smoking and party-obsessed 16 year old kid to answer some of our moronic questions.

The European version of Skins was a huge success, and we're all addicts here at FML. What did you think about it?
Danny Flaherty: I personally love UK Skins. It’s so real to teenage life. I was addicted to season one and two and watched every episode in about three days. My favorite part about Skins is that it relies on true-life stories from teenagers to make it come to life. They created an ingenious writing process that really makes Skins more original from any other teen drama I’ve ever seen before. It stays true to these real moments in teenage life. That’s why the teenagers, and anyone who has been a teenager, can relate so much to it.

Effy's hot, isn't she? Do you think you could get us her number? It's for one of the guys on the team!
In the US version, her name is Eura and I can’t give out her number, sorry. If you’re talking about Kaya Scodelario, we’re on the same boat. (: FML.

So you're playing the part of Stanley, who's in love with his best friend's girlfriend. Have you managed to get your own girlfriend without resorting to trying steal someone else's?
No, I'm single and I would never steal someone’s girlfriend.

Yeah, right... Can we have her number? It's for the same team member you couldn't give Effy's number to...
Sorry buddy. ):

The first episode airs tonight. Are you ready for fame and glory? I mean, tomorrow you'll have no problem getting a table at any restaurant you like. Then again, you'll have a hard time queuing quietly for a Big Mac...
I believe you can't be prepared for something that hasn't happened yet. I'm just relaxing and I’m going to see what happens and take the ride. I'm definitely very excited and can't wait to see what people think about the US version of Skins.

If we weren't already fans of everything Skins, what would you say to convince us to watch it tonight?
If you’re a teenager, or you have been a teenager at one point in your life, you should definitely watch this show. You'll thoroughly enjoy the authentic way Skins portrays the friendship, love and life of teenage youth.

Okay, but you say that in all the interviews. What about to US? 
A lot of people on this website seem like they are having really bad days. Watch Skins tonight. You can laugh at me trying to lose my virginity… it might cheer you up.

Will do! See you tonight in the show Danny.
