Jenny-Jinya, a German artist, has brought her admirers to tears yet again with a new heartbreaking cartoon. Her new cartoon strip this time is about a newborn duck who is separated from its mother and siblings.
Jenny told Bored Panda how she came up with the idea for her new comic. “The concept has always been there. Even though it was a relatively slow country road, a family of ducks was ran over in front of my eyes. “That was cruelty that could have been avoided so easily,” she explained.

German artist Jenny-Jinya drew a new bittersweet comic about a family of ducks that might bring you to tears
The time it takes to draw a single comic “varies a lot” from case to instance, according to the illustrator. “It depends on how long and in-depth I need to investigate certain issues.” However, the drawing itself will take around a week.”
Jenny told Bored Panda that she has been obsessed with drawing for as long as she can remember. “My mother used to say that she started drawing before she could walk.” I started doodling when I was a kid and never stopped. Yes, I’ve always aspired to be a creative person. I wanted to create worlds and convey stories.”
“However, I do have to take holidays from time to time, days when I entirely withdraw from art,” he said, adding that every artist has limits and has to recharge. “If not, I get severely burned.”
“A lot of small artists are frustrated because they haven’t yet identified their own style or niche.” That’s fine, though. Jenny stated, “That is something that cannot be hastened.” “It may sound strange, but let your art speak for itself. Finding your own personal style and specialization takes time to develop. “There aren’t any shortcuts.”
Jenny explained what inspired her to draw the comic
Jenny has a sizable fan base, with over 174k Instagram followers, 140k Facebook fans, and 25k Twitter followers. The German artist covers many social topics relating to animals in her comics.
In a recent interview with Bored Panda about her ella black cat cartoon, the artist discussed how abandoned animals are a major issue that has to be addressed.
“There are dozens of posters and infographics with statistics concerning abandoned or abused animals on display. Many people are aware of the issues, but this information is soon forgotten,” Jenny told Bored Panda. “Through my cartoons, I strive to give victims a voice.” I want the animals who have been touched to be allowed to tell their own experiences.
I’m hoping that by doing so, I’ll be able to raise awareness.”
Jenny imagines Death as a character who “is just doing their job,” according to Jenny.
“People despise them for what they’re doing, but someone has to do it in the end.” “I want to see Death as a kind and wise entity,” she explained. “For all I know, we could be playing the universe’s biggest MMORPG, but there’s no way of knowing.”
“Now go cuddle your animal!” she continued.
