Dear readers and Working Beauties…
There are not only cheerful moments in the life of an artist. It wasn’t just a coincidence I chose to publish the “Wizard of Oz” Parody last week. I am not going through a good time at this moment. Probably one of the worst of my life. My mother is very ill and had to go to hospital so I travelled back all the way from Australia to Switzerland for a while to be with her.

At the beginning I thought I will not be able to keep up Working Beauty, but once the situation calmed down and I moved out of the shock state, I returned to what I know best with full force: funny cartoons. People say that most creativity comes from depression, sadness and despair … hmmm that might be so and in my case I’d like to think that within that my art keeps me sane and actually cheerful.
My brain works overtime to think of those fantasy stories rather than spending too much time on the reality at hand. I know it is an escape too, but it’s helping. And I draw what I find funny (hoping that others do too). So basically I am cheering myself up by creating new funny stories.
I come to believe I am a very selfish individual…
That being said, I am even happier if you guys like what I put out! My heart beats faster with every comment I read from you! After all, if I can create more positive energy in my life, maybe a little of that ends up at your end too. That would be great.
So please keep on reading, enjoying. And do let me know what is your favorite escape plan from reality when you need it?
Cheers and hugs
