"Romanian-Canadian artist and lazy fairy." This is how Cassandra Calin describes herself and it's kinda fitting. The well-known cartoonist, illustrator, and graphic designer is based in Montreal, Canada. She talks about her everyday life, personal experiences, and first world problems in witty and fun comics that many people from around the world relate to.

The artist's cartoons are hand-drawn using Pigma Micron Pens (005 and 01) and a Sharpie permanent marker with Chisel Tip. Each comic can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to create, depending on how detailed it is.

Take a look at some of her newest comics below and make sure to follow the artist if you liked her work! Be sure to upvote your fave comics and share with your friends if you know they love cartoons and good humor. Bored Panda talked to Cassandra about her work and her art, so make sure to scroll down for the full interview. And also check out our previous articles about Cassandra here, here, and here. Oh, and here as well.

“From a very young age, I wanted to become an artist,” Cassandra said there was barely any doubt about her future. “When I was a toddler, I scribbled on my parents' furniture and, ever since that day, I just drew all the time.”

She joked: “But of course, I had to quickly switch to drawing on paper, for my parents' own sanity.”

"The challenge is having to get out of my comfort zone. I used to only draw people and willingly avoid backgrounds, because they took too much time and dedication. But when you draw comics, unfortunately you can't always avoid them,” the artist revealed what she finds difficult to do.

“The most enjoyable aspect? Drawing people. I love drawing faces, facial expressions, clothing and, as it probably shows, hair!”

Cassandra share some advice with those artists and cartoonists who are struggling with their work: “I think social media is a great way to build and connect to an audience. But don't stress on creating solely what's considered "safe" or "trending" (because trends change so quickly anyway), but instead do what you genuinely enjoy.”

She went on to say that building a large audience isn’t easy and won’t happen overnight. “I think it's nice to shift the focus from "having x, y, z followers" to "taking this opportunity to build an online portfolio". Create for the simple purpose of creating, learning and improving. As cliché as this sounds, if you're having fun in the process and it doesn't feel like a chore, you're doing it right!”

I don't think it's sweat. I think it refers to how deodorant makes stains on the shirt (based on the image of the black shirt having white stains.) It always happens to me.

Antiperspirants are getting better at not ruining clothes. I wear black shirts when I know I might sweat like a pig D:

Tip for any women who leaks a lot from under her armpits, go to your doctor for help. For years I didn't dare to wear tops that weren't black. Even when doing nothing and even not sweating, I somehow always had wet spots. It was really affecting my self confidence. Till one day i had enough and asked the doctor. She gave me something to put under my armpits once a week. And no more wet spots!

What’s more, the Romanian-Canadian is the author of the Still Just Kidding graphic novel. She also sells art prints on Society6, a website known for its artistic and creative crowd.

Cassandra’s popularity is not to be understated. She has nearly 2 million followers on Instagram and almost the same amount of fans on Facebook. It’s no wonder because her art is very pleasing to the eye.

I've always liked it because you can find stuff there that are not in the shops. I hate wearing the same as everybody else.

My company in a nutshell. Each of us receives approximately 100 e-mails per day, twice as much on busy days. After every vacation I take, I know more or leas which number to expect in my work inbox. Then I have to filter out and separate the e-mails that concern my role, and suddenly it's almost empty again.
