Who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh? We’re confident that our pandas will enjoy it. This is why we’re thrilled to share some humorous Blanche comics with you, which may surprise you with unexpected and hilarious twists.
Blanche is a Canadian illustrator who creates amusing images reflecting everyday circumstances or unexpected events in a fictional world. Her comics all have a recognisable and amusing quality to them, which just adds to the intrigue and makes her drawings even more difficult to put down.

The artist has always been a fan of comic books. “I used to doodle and make stories every night when I was thirteen years old. After studying visual arts in college, I decided to pursue a BSc in comic arts at the University of Québec in Outaouais (UQO). I graduated in 2018 and it took me a while to get into producing small strip comics, but now I’m having a joy! In addition, I work as an apprentice tattoo artist in Montréal.”
“There are so many aspects of making comics that I enjoy! The main one, I believe, would be receiving comments from my readers; I enjoy the connections that my art may make. Speaking of connections, this trip has introduced me to so many beautiful individuals; the comics community in Québec is still small, but it feels like a big family, and I admire how people support and have fun with one another. Making comics is, of course, my passion, so simply drawing and creating them provides me joy.
Consistency is the most difficult aspect of the creative process for me since, while I don’t live off of making comics, I still want to upload them on a regular basis and expand my network. I’m working on other projects and have a job. Making comics takes time, and it might be daunting at times, but I always make sure not to burn myself out. I believe that many online content makers can become caught in their work and burn out; this is something I’m striving to avoid.”
Blanche draws ideas and inspiration from a variety of sources, including her own life, “dumb stuff” she thinks about, and, when inspiration fails to strike, she looks up a list of random words online to see if one of them inspires her to make something.
“As a result, my comics are either relevant or completely strange.” I’m not always driven to draw and make comics, and I’m not always motivated to have ideas. Motivation is a sensation that we don’t always have control over, but it doesn’t stop me. I believe that in order to succeed on your own, you must be disciplined. You must go ahead and do it, as well as create a goal for yourself. I wouldn’t be where I am now if I had stopped writing comics whenever I didn’t feel inspired.
