Not our kids, but we hate kids. For example, today we were in the library, checking out Tinkerbell's biography, when what we thought was a midget, came up to us and asked "What are you doing?" - "Reading a book, what about you?" we replied, but the kid just smiled and ran. What kind of person asks questions and doesn't reply when you ask one back? Are the kids soviets now? Another example, on FML there are 33 pages of the kids section. Yes, we hate kids. It's true that they're cute, sometimes, but not today. That's what our today's artist, Ronnie, is going to prove.
, 17, isn't old enough yet to have kids. Lucky her. Plus, she's living in Southern California, nobody would raise kids over there, unless if the kids are mangoes. Anyway, Ronnie
is still in College. She does little art projects, murals and the occasional babysitting gig, but for the most part she's experiencing the wonderfully painful world of trying to find a job in a rundown economy with little to no experience.
She's a nerdy, competitive student who likes to be the best in every single class. (Yeah, she's that sort of person). She's currently a Visual and Performing Arts major in the CSU system, but she's planning on transferring to a private art school that specializes in animation once she figure out how to pay for it.
The best part of being unemployed is... nothing. She admits being bored quite often, but then she checks out FML and she feels much better. W promise we didn't make that up. Ronnie's goal is to work for Pixar as an animator or a storyboard artist... anything really, she loves Pixar so much she would be happy just making coffee for all the Pixar Team. They continue to bring their A-Game with every movie, and it's been her dream to work with them ever since she was 10. Come on! That has got to be one of the most interesting jobs ever.
Now, Ronnie is planning on making a web comic with one of her outrageously talented friends in the near future. Her friend has all these crazy ideas and has written novels which are hundreds of pages long, and she wants Ronnie to bring one of them to life in internet-form. She's stoked. You should be, too. She's also working on a children's book. One of her friends managed to make and publish one, and she realized that she should attempt to do the same.
Along with art, music is a passion of hers. She once asked her art teacher if she thought she'd ever make it, and she told her she would be famous for music, rather than art. She was in a badly-named band as the lead vocalist/guitarist/bassist/drummer (they often spontaneously switched instruments just for the hell of it). She can also plays the ukulele, and she's learning the piano now. Oh, she's a singer too; she's currently up for callbacks in her school's musical for the lead role. Glee style.
"-Time to take a nap darling, but first, why did you choose this FML?
-I was having no luck with the one I thought I would originally use, so I kept clicking random until I found this one. I couldn't help but picture a pathetic-looking kid with freckles, and then I knew I had my picture.
-Why did you decided to send an illustration for FML?
-Because I'm a competitive pain in the ass and I one day I clicked the illustrated FML and thought "Hey, I could do that. I could do that better."

You did great. Thank you Ronnie!
