Heartbreaking Comic About The Sad Life Of A Neglected Hamster By Comic Artist Jenny-Jinya

Jenny-Jinya is a comic artist whose name you should know pretty well by now. She regularly creates heartbreaking comics that draw attention to animal abuse problems, and her latest one about a neglected hamster is no different.

In her new comic, the artist shows how peer pressure and the lack of knowledge can lead to hamsters being mistreated. In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that the urge to create the comic came after seeing a photo of someone’s hamster on Facebook in a cage that was way too small. “It was sad how resistant the person was to advice, and the counter-argument was really just ‘the staff at the pet store said the size was sufficient!’” said Jenny.

Comic Artist Outraged After Filmmakers Rip Off His Original Idea And Not Even Include Him In The Credits

With over 1.7 million followers on Instagram, Adam Ellis, aka Adamtots, is one of the most widely-recognized webcomic artists out there. Recently, the artist got into a feud with filmmakers Andrew Butler and James Wilson, who shamelessly ripped of the idea of one of his comics and turned it into a movie without even giving him proper credit. Adam decided not to remain silent and took this whole ordeal to social media, where he quickly gained support from thousands of fans.

In one of his recent Tweets, Adam explained how the filmmakers plagiarized his comic shot-for-shot for their movie Keratin, and even gave some examples that really drive the point home. Turns out that the filmmakers had contacted him in the past and asked him to promote the film. Adam, of course, did not approve of the idea but that didn’t seem to stop the filmmakers – they simply decided to ghost him and released the movie anyway. Both Butler and Wilson have now shut down their social media accounts, making it impossible to reach them.

I Illustrate The Everyday Problems Of Being A Woman (New Pics)

I’m Prudence, a 28-year-old illustrator and comic artist from Belgium. I first started my comics on Instagram years ago as a way of journaling and keeping a diary in the form of drawings. I wanted to remember my progress by keeping some sort of collection online even though I was unaware of how Instagram really worked. It was seen by multiple people and since I always had issues with my self worth, struggled to love myself entirely and completely, and battled with mental health issues, I also talked about my issues. There were many people who found value and worth in my works because I spoke for those who were unable to speak up for themselves. I created a community for people to show them that they are not alone. I still find inspiration in my own battle with mental health, my own thoughts and sometimes sorrows and just everyday life.

To Remember His Kids Doing Silly Things, This Dad Started Putting It Into Comics (30 Pics)

Anthony Holden is an artist and father who creates the adorable “Precious Rascals” comic series where he documents all of the silly things his kids do. In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the man said he started the comic because he knew the time with his little ones would be short and he wants to never forget those moments. “Parenting is full of so many tough realities, and I wanted to have pleasant memories of all the good times with our kids,” said Anthony.

“I began documenting the funny things our kids would do and say; I showed the strips to friends who told me I should put them on the internet,” said the artist. Slowly but surely the comics picked up and Anthony currently has over 141k followers on Instagram. The man says he’s glad he could put the strips out there and loves getting comments from the readers. “My favorite side effect of this whole effort though is that our kids will go through the strips and read them like family photo albums. They’re constantly quoting their own catchphrases. It’s pretty great,” added the artist.

The artist says he dreamed of becoming a comic artist since he was a kid but the dream had its ups and downs. “I had always dreamed of being a comic strip artist when I was younger, but by the time I had reached adulthood, newspaper comics weren’t really a thing anymore,” explained Anthony. “The number of folks who make a living just on newspaper syndication is incredibly small. I decided to go to college and study Japanese instead. I had learned to speak Japanese while living in Japan as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

“When I was in school at BYU, I stumbled across the animation major and decided to give it a shot. I learned about the animation production pipeline and decided to vie for an artist position at a studio somewhere doing storyboards, or animation, or design or something. I was mostly just excited by the idea that I might be able to make a living drawing cartoons,” said the artist.

“Getting seen by industry reviewers and recruiters as a student of a school in Utah proved to be a big challenge, but the internet came to the rescue,” continued Anthony. “I had made some friends online with industry pros in LA, and I leaned tenuously and gently on those connections to try and meet people. A very gracious Michael Lester (tremendously talented story artist at DreamWorks) was kind enough to invite me to the studio, where I had a chance to meet with some of my favorite artists in person. This led to an opportunity to apply for the trainee program at DreamWorks, where I got my start in the industry. A good deal of luck helped open doors for me. I’m really thankful to people who gave some unknown kid the time of day.”

“A word of advice to anyone out there making comics: keep having fun! Do what you love! Of course, this will not guarantee commercial success, so don’t hang all your hopes on getting discovered and making millions,” advised Anthony.

“My favorite advice to give to artists is this: remember that cartoons are fun to make but, like any hobby or career, they can’t be the sum total of who you are as a person. You have to be invested in something larger than drawings. For me, it’s my faith and my family,” said Anthony.

“Live a good life, and make cartoons a part of it if you can. Don’t get hung up on social media numbers as a reflection of who you are: you’re a person with real intrinsic value outside of some random metrics the internet associates with your digital persona,” added the artist. “Surround yourself with good people whom you love and who love you back and, when you can, watch and make cartoons with those people!”
