We believe that the majority of us have already had it demonstrated to us that we are more alike than we believe. How many times have you seen a movie, a video, or read a book or a comic and recognised the situations depicted?
We’d like to offer some more of Jess Rae’s comics (“Doodley Squat Comics”) that you might find relatable in this article. The Australian-born artist creates hilarious images that depict her daily life as a mother, lover, and woman.
Jess distinguishes out with her distinct childlike drawing style, which only adds to the intrigue and pleasure of her comics!
Bored Panda has previously featured “Doodley squat comics,” which you can find by clicking here. “Have you ever, ever felt like this?” the artist wonders on Instagram. Let us know what you think in the comments!
Before she started drawing, the artist worked as a projectionist in a movie theatre, which she described as “sitting in a dark room munching popcorn and lollies and making sure the movies ran on time, lol it was amazing.” Prior to that, the artist worked in a bead shop, where she had “equally as much fun” playing with beads all day.
“I’ve always enjoyed being creative, but before I started making comics, I found drawing to be quite frustrating. I didn’t do it very often because my hand would never perform what I imagined in my thoughts. But now that I’ve drawn practically every day for the past ten years (gawd, now I think I should be better than I am lol) and I love drawing, digital drawing in particular because it’s so much more forgiving, I think I should be better than I am.”
Jess previously stated that she began drawing comics because she was tired with her Facebook feed’s text-heavy content. “So I downloaded a kids’ sketching app and decided to start drawing the events of my daily life instead.”
“I’ve always been ‘okay’ at sketching, so in the beginning, all I cared about was the jokes, not how wonderful it looked.” Actually, I’m not sure I paid attention to the jokes all that much; if something hilarious happened, I just jotted it down as it happened, without really thinking about it.It took me a long time to be courageous enough to modify simple things like the backdrop colour or add shadows to my characters.”
