Learning new stuff is one of life's most gratifying experiences. And Michael, the creator of Light Roast Comics knows it. He's an American guy who currently lives in Germany and has recently set out on an artistic journey.
"I started drawing the funny comics this February," Michael told Bored Panda. "Light Roast Comics is (supposed to be) a funny and occasionally thought-provoking webcomic, and its topics are almost totally random with just a handful of recurring characters and storylines."
Everyday life has an important role in Michael's creative process. "I am usually inspired by conversations I have with friends and ideas I have while I'm out running."
"I personally don't find vulgar, profane stuff very funny, so I tend to steer clear of those kinds of subjects, sticking with good advice and some savage roasts. And any of my funny comic strips might genuinely hurt or offend someone - obviously you could take that concept to either extreme. But if people aren't having fun checking my funny drawings out, then it's all a waste of time. I usually bounce ideas I'm unsure about off of a few friends and other artists to get their vital life advice."
"As of less than a year ago, I never thought I would be drawing comics or delivering the best roasts about life, but now it's a significant part of my schedule, and I'm having a ton of fun with it," Michael concluded. "I hope that my relatively simple example might encourage more people to step out on their own creative limb and try something new."
