Make that FML talk

 

Stop everything you're doing right now, there's an (almost) naked lady in today's illustration! Plus, there's a puppet AND doctors. It's the perfect illustration, made by Gemma Correll, our British artist of the day. Check out her interview!

 

 

-Gemma, welcome on board! First, what's your name, surname, nickname if you have one?
-Gemma - Correll - Bear (long story)

-(So I'm not allowed to ask you anything about it? Okay. Damn.)How old are you?
-I'm 28 years old.

-Where do you live?
-Norwich, England

-What's your job?
-I'm a freelance Illustrator - I design T-shirts and greetings cards (among other products), I draw pictures for magazines, I illustrate books - and I draw a lot of cats.

-What's your journey?
-I have drawn pictures forever, but I'm still surprised that I've made it my career.


-What are your inspirations?
-People and animals that I meet, Overheard conversations, the weather, coffee, my Pugs Mr Pickles and Bella, Books, Movies. I can be inspired by pretty much anything, to be honest. Even doing my Tax Return gave me some good ideas. Also it also made me want to kill myself.

-Do you read webcomics? If so, which ones?
-I love Kate Beaton's and Liz Prince's comics. I'm not sure if they are really "webcomics" but they are comics and they are on the internet, so I guess that will do.... and PUSHEEN. Pusheen is my favourite.


-Tell us more about your website and the creations you're selling?
-I wanted my website to be a reflection of my work and fun to use (so I hope it is). I make a lot of products, including comics, printed tote bags and badges and sell them in my online shop. I like making my own products, it's a bit different from the commissioned work that I spend most of my time doing. It feels more personal and fun.

-Aaaah, this is the last question! Even after two years I still hate this part. I don't wanna say goodbye... why did you choose this FML story?
-Gynecological stories are ALWAYS funny... aren't they?
-Yes they are! Unless you're the one with your legs open.
