Esther González started drawing comics a year ago, after realizing that she wasn't happy with her office job. The 31-year-old from Spain has been interested in drawing from a very young age, though.
"When I was a child, I always copied animals or any other drawing that fascinated me, especially Disney-related," the artist told Bored Panda. "Around the age of 11, I discovered Calvin and Hobbes and took comics more 'seriously.' When I saw these comics for the first time, I was in the dentist's waiting room. There were lots of them and this made going there more fun. I should also confess that I was the one who ripped all of these comics out of the magazines. Haha, sorry. At least I still have and love them."
The artist continues creating comics because she loves being able to tell stories and provoke reactions through this medium. "It was a [new] world of possibilities for me." Esther said she's mostly inspired by her daily life, films, cartoons, and other comics.
While many artists are going digital, Esther isn't in a hurry to join them. "First I start drawing by hand with pencil on paper and then I ink with rotrings and markers. After that, I erase the pencil and scan it. I finish using a tablet and Photoshop to correct any errors and to color."
"The best thing is being able to spread your ideas and messages and see that they make someone smile."
