FML under the sheets

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?
I'm 24.

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

FML's Matchmaker

Now, we can match you up based on your favorite FMLs. As you may or may not know, you can favorite FMLs by clicking on the heart icon under each one. This collection of hearts is then displayed on your account profile. What we're planning to do is to let you choose your favorite stories (at least 5 - but no more than 65) on the first 10 pages of the website, and then match you up with someone who has selected the same stories, based on a percentage of choice similarities (please be sure to fill out your profile via "my profile/edit" if you want the other members to be able to fully appreciate you).

Here's how it works:

1. Log in with your member's account (or create one, it's totally free).

2. Choose at least 5 of your favorite stories (but no more than 65) contained within the first 10 pages of the website, by clicking on the little heart next to the FML.

3. Click on "Calculate your matches" and you'll immediately see all the FML members whose sense of humour matches with yours. You'll then be able to send private messages to the members you like the most. Since you have the same tastes, you'll probably have lots of stuff to talk about. Wax lyrical, get creative!

And off you go! CLICK HERE. You can even refresh your favourite FMLs every day to discover new matches.

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 !

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!
