Pumpkin Carving

What should I have them carve on each of their pumpkins?” – moi

It has been a while since I have blogged and this is a pretty good one. I started a webcomic called “Cute World Problems” and I have been creating two-five new comics each week.

You can find my comics on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and the official website Cute World Problems DOTCOM Please follow and share! I am mostly building my audience on Instagram than the other platforms at this time.

The comic is about the cute characters Teddy the bear, Spark the unicorn and Bunbun the rabbit going through life and dealing with their own set of problems. Many of these events are inspired by my own life experiences, with a dash of drama, exaggeration and sparkle magic!

Let me know which character and comic is your favorite.

My favorite comic is A Guide to Hugs because it is so simple, and something people don’t think about, but can probably relate to. I prefer the side hug. A huge piece of myself is in each of my characters. If I had to pick a favorite it has to be Teddy since he came to me first.

Along the way I have retaught myself how to make gifs. You can see an example of one of my gifs in the comic Teddy at the Gym below.

I’ve been continuing to create art every day. Never did I think it would take me here.

2 months and 15 days to go until my resolution will come to its end.

Cute World Problems – Chocolate

I need to figure out the rules of this world and it is a lot of fun. – moi

Recently listening to a Pencil Kings podcast I was introduced to special guest Fran Krause who created the webcomic Deep Dark Fears. It’s a webcomic based on irrational fears. I was inspired by Fran talking about how he spends 3 hours every Monday just working on his comic. I thought to myself I can and want to do that!

An idea that came to me was to create a webcomic based on adorable and cute creatures experiencing their own set of problems. The title would be  Cute World Problems.

The characters that came to mind are Teddy the Bear and Spark the Unicorn. For this webcomic I had to create a third character. I decided on a rabbit since I LOVE bunnies! My husband John suggested Bunbun the Rabbit. I’m still taking suggestions.

The comic to the left is one of the ideas I have to help give you and idea of Teddy the Bear. He does not like nicknames. I plan to create something similar for Spark and Bunbun.

I’m thinking maybe this webcomic can come out once a week on a Monday. We’ll see where this goes. I’m not sure how creative or funny I can be.

Thanks for reading! ❤

Pink Bear

Dear, Vanessa,

I remember the dear sister who asked for a pink bear for Christmas. I remember my kind sister who was bringing home fresh apple cider for her family, and before anyone could get a taste it was accidentally dropped and spilled all over the school bus on the way home.

I remember the summer it was just the three of us you, mom and me bowling and watching Lion King in theaters. I remember making a water park in the back yard, and pulling you through in a wagon.

All of these memories I will cherish forever when I think of my sweet sister. I will always know the purest good in you.

I’m not sure if you remember, but once Bo pooped in your bed, and before you noticed I washed your sheets. I remember the cross dad gifted me meant so much more to you than it did me that it was easy to give it to you when you asked. I swear that one night you called I just wanted you to live even if meant you may never speak to me again.

I have heard of the many things you have done, and I know more of your past actions than anyone on this earth. Listen, even after all of those things I love you. Isn’t that was love is? Loving someone unconditionally? I love you and I will always love you.

I’m your only brother in this world. True blood. I have heard of your plans. I want nothing more in this world than for you to be safe and happy. I have always wanted that for you. I will always love you, and will always be here for you.

Reach out to me if you need to vent. I promise I will just listen and not judge. Reach out to me if you need someone to save you. I promise I will be there. Reach out to me.

I love you dear sister who asked for the pink bear for Christmas.

Sincerely,

Eric
