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!

These are actually much better for your health than traditional toilets. Look it up :)

Thank God that in India you have both.... I can manage to stay in that position tho. I must say that it is even more healthier than the modern ones.

Surprised the cleaners once in a Beijing department shop for being a westerner coming out of a stall that contained a squat toilet. Ye get used to em...I had to, the university I was at only had western toilets in the international block.

The toilet are the Zen Zone for some of us and the only time of day to relax and READ SOME COMICS in peace.. if I wanted to do some squatting exercise I either go to the gym or picking up the kids' lego! And btw, I don't wanna be the poor sucker clearing up THAT toilet after someone having diarrhea (ränneskit)

It takes much more effort and leg muscles to keep yourself floating above the western type toilet while doing your thing (in no way I'm touching THAT with any part of my body, especially my bum!) than to keep yourself above the eastern one, shown here.

There were many toilets like this when I visited Hong Kong. I had no problem with them (I was only 15 at the time), but my mother refused to even try due to her bad knees. There were also some toilets where you were handed the paper by a woman with tongs before you went into the stall; pity if your number 1 was a surprise number 2!

Only thing is it's harder for white people to do the Asian squat our heels raise instead of staying flat. I have seen it tested and it's always more difficult, you can prob do the squat w no problem if you've been doing it since childhood

Actually, you can do both. It's just all about flexibility in the joints of your ankles and the joints connecting your pelvis and legs. I grew up in western society and have trouble squatting with my feet flat. But I stretch and try to keep my feet flat on the floor when I need to squat. It works. It just takes awhile because you're training your body on a new mobility skill.

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
