Esther González started drawing funny 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 illustrations 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 funny comic strips 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 NSFW 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, cute couples, and other comics also being an inspiration for her relationship comics.
While many artists are going digital, Esther isn't in a hurry to join them with her couple cartoons. "First I start drawing by hand with pencil on paper, and then I ink with Rotring pens 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."
Take a look at some of her daily life and couple comics below.
