Hey, I’m Amir Lopez; I’m based in Melbourne, Australia, and create “Wyatt & Blu” comics.

While during lockdown (which we’re back to again recently), I created a unique, wholesome, and funny series of lockdown-ish comics that were inspired by my daily life with my fiancé, friends, and other things going on in the world right now. I’m still creating more for this series, but here’s the 36 I’ve made so far.

Despite the gloomy times, I aim to find the positive and funny side of things, which I think is essential, as there’s so much negativity in the world. The aim of “Wyatt & Blu” comics is to bring a smile to your face, as we need it sometimes to get us through.

You can find more on our website and socials. Enjoy!

Here's a little about me. I'm a Filipino-American living in Australia. I moved to Australia a couple years ago for work, and then met my wife here.

I have a corporate job as a marketing professional and do these comics on the side. I studied marketing and communications in university and didn’t think I was going to be a creative of some sort, nor was comics ever in my mind at that time. But I always did love writing and entertaining, so it eventually and surprisingly led me to comics somehow. And now I love making them.

I, seriously, got into art around freshman year of high school. Outside of class (actually, sometimes in class), I wrote a lot. Mostly hip-hop stuff and poems. It continued into university but slowly came to a full stop. I then graduated and started working, and have always thought about writing again, but was trying to find out what that would look like. At some point, after a couple of years, I discovered webcomics, and I was like "Okay, I'm going to do this." And now, here I am.

The reason why I love making comics is that it’s a creative outlet for me, so I enjoy being able to express these ideas that I have in my head. Secondly, I enjoy the entertainment people get from them.

I get my inspiration from daily life, current affairs, and pop culture. I aim to find humor and amusement in things that I believe will be relatable or understandable at a broad scale. The ideas sometimes come out of nowhere and I write them down, or I, purposely, sit down and think of comic ideas.

I'm looking forward to getting my own place so I can have a pet, it was on my wishlist but all this isolation is driving it up my priorities list.

My favorite webcomic artists are War & Peas, Poorly Drawn Lines, Mr. Lovenstein, and Sundae Kids. In addition to The Awkward Yeti and Enzo Comics, all the webcomic artists I’ve mentioned have influenced my comic writing the most. And a special mention to Jim Davis, creator of Garfield, who inspires my diligence.

Some of you might've noticed that I've changed my comic title from Wyatt & Blu to Amir Lopez. Initially, I thought my page would just be the Wyatt & Blu series, and any new comics would just get their own page. But later down the line when I started thinking of trying other comic series and one-off comics, I decided it would be better and easier to share it all from one page. So with that in mind, I changed the name of the website and social profiles to something more broad and all-encompassing - my name: Amir Lopez.

I've been asked to give some advice to those who would like to try making comics. My advice is to just do it, and, ultimately, find your voice. I understand everyone will have a different objective with their work, either to do it casually or to be commercially successful. But for either, you've got to start somewhere, and at some point, an important part is to find your unique voice.

My plans are simply to just keep doing these comics regularly and see what it grows into. I’ll likely trial a new series at some point, but I need to flesh out what that will be. Hope you're enjoying my comics! Follow me on social or my website. I plan to continue these comics regularly so if you like wholesome, funny, and quirky comics—you know where to find me!

Why do people even bother lying? Nobody is fooled. You work, you get money, that's it.

Yeah. That's how it works. Just don't assume you need to let them use you as doormats.
