Mikiko is a German-Japanese artist currently living in London, UK. She creates funny comics about her everyday life with her adorable cat, named Emi, who is probably her "favorite thing in the world".

Growing up, Mikiko moved around a lot. "I was born in Tokyo and grew up in Hong Kong, Germany, Japan and Belgium, so manga (Japanese comics) were a way for me to connect to home," she told Bored Panda. "I was always into cartoon drawings, but at age 12 I read my first Shonen Jump magazine (action adventure!) and decided, that's what I wanted to do as a job."

The artist finds drawing ideas for her cute comics everywhere. "Mainly people, music, and life with its funny problems in general. Other artists too of course! People are so creative and funny, it's inspiring."

Take a look at some of her fun comics below and vote for your favorites!

Hahahaha, I am almost 30, married with 2 kids, but people still think I am in high school. Most get shocked when they see a "small kid" wearing a wedding ring. I used to be bothered when I went to watch a movie with an age restriction and they ask me if I am over 18, no longer bothered, I take it as a compliment :D.

I'm 29 and still get ID checked a lot. Guess I should take it as a compliment :P Got me a keychain once too when I wanted to buy booze. Keychain (with bottle opener) said something like "Congrats, I estimated your age wrong" :P

I'm 18 and didn't have to take off my shoes in airport security lines until very recently. Just a few months ago a TSA officer even gave me a "Junior TSA" sticker 😄.

Why does that sign look like it says that you aren't allowed to get a drink until you are 76? Also, does the UK allow 16 year olds to buy alcoholic drinks?

Shortie here, and my family ages incredibly well too- I got carded up until my mid thirties! Once I had my kid tagging along that stopped, but OMG it would make my day!
