Artist Illustrates Her Daily Life With Her Boyfriend And Her Cat In 56 Adorable Illustrations

Mikiko is a German-Japanese artist currently living in London, UK. She started drawing professionally around 2006. Her comics revolve around her daily life with her adorable cat, named Emi.

Mikiko’s life is surely dynamic, so expect to see very diverse comics. “I was born in Tokyo and grew up in Hong Kong, Germany, Japan and Belgium, so manga (Japanese comics) were a way for me to connect to home,” she said. “I always drew, but at age 12 I read my first Shonen Jump magazine (action adventure!) and decided, that’s what I wanted to do as a job.”

She finds inspiration for her comics from literally everywhere. “Mainly people, music and life in general. Other artists too of course! People are so creative and funny, it’s inspiring.”

In this post, we have gathered some of her lovable works that show her every life with her boyfriend and her adorable cat. Scroll down to enjoy and get ready for a good laugh!

When asked how she became a comic artist, she was willing to share. “At age 12 I decided that was what I wanted to do. I focused on art and drawing, joined contests, failed, and kept at honing my skill until I was an adult. Once I was around 23, I applied with an indie publisher and got my first (crappy) comic done and printed. With the indie publisher I then went to manga conventions regularly while still building an online presence and taking multiple jobs. I kept publishing new material, did workshops, talked to people etc. One day Tokyopop’s boss watched my workshop on panelling, and bought one of my books because he was impressed. We then talked and eventually I got my own project with Tokyopop after a few years,” she said.
