Webcomics are some of the most entertaining content on the internet, so when I find some good ones, I'm eager to share.

Ariane is a 24-year-old artist from Paris, France, and she's the one behind the hilarious comics of ari_stocrate. The illustrator has been drawing since childhood and started comics in her teen years. "I experimented in high school, but it was really bad," she told Bored Panda. "I really got into it last year and even more in last November when I discovered digital drawing which upped my game instantly."

"I get my ideas from small Peruvians I keep in my basement who work day and night to find the best jokes… and also real life. My all-time inspiration is Garfield of course!"

And what about her medium? Does she start drawing on paper or are the comics digital from the start? "All digital baby! Way better than paper. I hate paper. My home is paper free. And also pepper free. That last statement is false. I love pepper. What was the question again?"

Lots of truly fun situations that Ariane draws about in her comics involve her cat, Jasper. "My cat Jasper comes from the planet Cathar where he was discovered to be force sensitive," jokes the artist. "But the empire declared him too powerful and put a bounty on his head, which is why he had to exile to planet Earth, he loves it here but he misses death sticks a bit."

Lately, Ari's comics have been gaining more and more traction and the artist encourages everyone who would like to create cartoons, to give them a try. "The best thing is anyone can do it, you don’t have to be Michael-Angelo to draw comic strips, the important part is the joke, not the art per se. The worst thing is some people don’t understand the minimalistic approach in comic strips for the joke to work and will criticize the art as if you were drawing a graphic novel. But trust me, drastic changes of angles and poses with too much-added details spoils the comedy timing and you end up with a weird unfunny chimera between two genres. I've seen this, I've done this, you don’t want this."

You should never congratulate someone on their pregnancy unless she's giving birth at that very moment.

Never. Never. Never comment on a woman's pregnancy unless you are 1 million percent sure.

Never pressume someone is pregnant. Just don't. Such a painful question to get if you are not.

Had a customer with a strap above the stomach and a belt below, so I asked when she was due...for what look just like a pregnant belly. Boss asked the lady if she wanted to file a complaint after she told me she wasn't pregnant, the dress just made her look that way. Why The F&^% would a lady wear a dress that makes them look pregnant...unless they are wanting to be asked!

This is why i pretty much never wear make up; my skin can't really handle it and can't really be bothered anyway. And if people are used to how you look without, they'll never do the "omg you look ill?!" :P
