How I Started Drawing Webcomics
I've always had an infatuation for art, mostly the cartoon world. When I first began drawing at a young age I stuck to mostly anime and cartoon drawings. As I grew older and began attending college I focused more on the design side of art. While finishing out my college years as a graphic design major I still felt like something was missing. For the next two years after college, I began my career as a graphic designer while using my free time to play around with digital painting. It wasn't until I came across a few different webcomics accounts that I felt really inspired. At first, I would tell myself "you'll never be able to draw that" or "You aren't that funny or creative" but one day I decided it wouldn't hurt to try.
Around two months ago I began drawing my funny comics called "Bevs Boredom". My character, Bev (short for my last name Bevilaqua), is based off on me and the other cartoon characters in it are based off on my close friends and family in real life. Each funny drawing depicts things I've experienced in my everyday life or things that happened just a few hours ago! My style came about just from practice and trial and error, I definitely draw inspiration from cartoons and anime. I try to keep a consistent posting schedule of every day or every other day. I'm still shocked by how quickly my page has grown and how loving all of my followers are. It has definitely helped grow my confidence. I try to always keep a positive and loving attitude, even when trolls post hate on my page. I'm thankful I took that leap of faith because it has helped my dreams come true. If my drawing ideas can brighten even one person's day then that all I need to keep doing them. There is still so much room for my comics, creativity, and style to grow and I don't plan on stopping here!
