26-year-old Luxembourger Valérie Minelli, AKA Mrs. Frollein, has been making her sweet, simple-yet-funny comics for around 5 years, with the noble mission to cheer people up and make them smile.

“I think most of the time I just want to make people happy and leave them with a warm and fuzzy feeling, so I try to make my comics really wholesome from time to time,” Valérie told Bored Panda. “I‘m a pretty rough person in real life, I curse a lot. But I don’t like that kind of humor in comics.”

Describing her style as “rather simple and kinda inspired by the Japanese 'Chibi' characters,” she explains that she's not a fan of the big, expressive eyes and prefers the challenge of creating as much expression as she can with just two dots and a mouth. “I mostly use an IPad and Procreate to draw the comics and some Photoshop,” she told us. “When I began drawing them, I used some fineliners and paper, which worked too!”

“I am still a student, so I don’t do comics for a living (I study comics though, which is amazing!). I work as an illustrator for children's books and try to manage to do all of it. For now, webcomics are just a hobby, but I have some amazing followers who buy my prints or buy me some ko-fi to support me, so I can at least make a little money by drawing comics. Hopefully I can someday make a living from just comics.”

Most of Valérie's comics are inspired by everyday life, and her relationship with her boyfriend. “I always hated most of the couple comics out there, so I decided to draw some myself, she said. “Some of them are just my own thoughts, almost like a writing a diary. I mostly read webcomics, but I try to get more into German graphic novels.”

“I really enjoy comics by jakelikesonions, nathanwpyle, natemorebikes, lizclimo and War and Peas. (One half of War and Peas is my comic teacher so I‘ll get in trouble if I don‘t name them!)” Valérie told us with a laugh.

I hate going to the hairdressers because I hate small talk! I don't blame them as I know lots of people want that. Can anyone recommend a hairdresser who doesn't ask questions? I don't care where- America, UK, India, Australia, the middle of the Sahara desert.....I'm willing to travel!!

Had to get a little old kitty out of the road yesterday - lost and confused as he has dementia (I found out when I got him to people who knew him). Such a bony little lad but his purr still came through strong and true.

You should watch the russian short film "Hedgehog in the fog" (1975). it has the same story, but deeper. I cried often about it.
