What's the secret to becoming a successful creator? Developing artistic mastery, generating more ideas, having excellent social media presence? Try all of them. And if you need an example, Natalia Trykowska (also known as Verauko) is the perfect one. She's a very productive Polish graphic designer/digital artist, based in London, United Kingdom. Her commercial projects aside, Verauko is regularly drawing comics as well, and they have already earned her nearly 48K Instagram followers.

"I try to vary the topics as much as possible, whatever comes to my mind first gets illustrated," Verauko told Bored Panda. " That's why sometimes you'll see me drawing real-life situations, and sometimes some random imaginary mermaid problems. There are absolutely no limitations when it comes to themes. The only topic I would preferably stay away from though would probably be politics, since my knowledge on that matter is very limited and I'd much more prefer to draw stuff that brings people together than divide them."

Over the years she has dealt mostly with graphic design and digital drawing. The former is a result of Natalia's work experience in advertisement while the latter is a form of passion that has been following her since she was a child.

For Natalia, coming up with the idea is the hardest part of the creative process. "I'm lucky enough to have a good imagination when it comes to visual stuff, but when I have to come up with a story, my mind often turns blank," Verauko added. "That's why majority of my comics are everyday life "problems", e.g. naked butts randomly showing up on the streets or nervous laughing fits at coffee shops - all of those silly, random situations actually happen to me and that's why I draw them." Natalia said that working on the drawing is relatively easy when she finishes developing the idea.

And her expertise shouldn't come as a surprise, since Verauko took her time developing it. She has a Bachelor of Arts from the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology. Scroll down to check out her comics, and upvote your favorite pieces.

Sports is always good, even if you do not loose weight! Gaining muscles first is pretty normal...it is not the number on the scales that counts but how you feel!

I know that the artist of these comics is Polish but this comic reminds me one time when an American transfer student visited our class at school. She told about her and her country. At the end of the class everyone could ask questions. The first question was: 'Do Americans really sleep with their shoes on?". I don't remember what she answered but then we had a long discussion about wearing shoes indoors because in my country (Finland) it is not polite to wear outdoor shoes inside someone's home. :D

we don't wear shoes at home in Poland neither, however in the picture she loves her shoes so much that she sleeps in it, that's the funny part I guess :D

I am from South Africa... Here we where shoes inside and outside... Due to weather there will always be dirt in your house... We don't sleep with shoes though, that should be uncomfortable.

I was bought up where everyone we knew wore shoes in the home. Never had to ask, it was just how it was. When we moved to Australia, it was something we had to get used to as a lot of people we know here, don't wear shoes in the house. Over the years we have gotten used to this and so our house is the same, unless of course you wearing indoor shoes or you getting ready to go out. You always put the shoes on last so you don't walk around the house in them until you ready to leave. I have an issue with my leg and feet and so can't walk around without shoes but I will still offer to take them off, when going to someone's house and normally pack a pair of indoor shoes, so that I can wear them when inside. Most of the time, I am told to keep my shoes on as they know about my issue. I tend to avoid places, I know I have to take my shoes off.

British wear outside shoes inside the house as well ( unfortunately in my house they need to take them off)

I live in the States. I've seen many people wear outdoor shoes inside. I don't wear them in my own home, though. But most people don't expect you to remove your shoes in their homes. But, if someone asks you to remove your shoes, it's polite to do so.
