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 cartoon drawings 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 cute 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 in her cartoon characters as she can with just two dots and a mouth. “I mostly use an IPad and Procreate to fulfill my creative ideas 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 these cute drawings 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 these relatable 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 cute couple comics out there, so I decided to draw some myself, she said. “Some of them are just my own thoughts, almost like 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!!

Don't be disappointed you don't have this type of relationship with your mom. The reason probably is that she didn't have it either and people tend to immitate their own parents when they become such. It is hard to break the chain, but you should still try your best with your own kids.

You're the saddest bunch I ever met But you can bet before we're through Mister, I'll make a man out of you Tranquil as a forest but on fire within Once you find your center, you are sure to win You're a spineless, pale, pathetic lot And you haven't got a clue Somehow I'll make a man out of you I'm never gonna catch my breath Say goodbye to those who knew me Boy, was I a fool in school for cutting gym This guy's got 'em scared to death Hope he doesn't see right through me Now I really wish that I knew how to swim Be a man We must be swift as the coursing river Be a man With all the force of a great typhoon Be a man With all the strength of a raging fire Mysterious as the dark side of the moon Time is racing toward us till the Huns arrive Heed my every order and you might survive You're unsuited for the rage of war So pack up, go home, you're through How could I make a man out of you?

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.
