Illustrator Sarah Andersen is known for capturing the good, the bad and the downright hilarious parts of being a lady. And in her upcoming book, Big Mushy Happy Lump, she hits the nail on the head when it comes to female friendship.
As Andersen explained to The Huffington Post, she draws inspiration for her comics from her own life.
“I try to write about my personal experiences that I think are universal, and I think women connect to that and enjoy seeing themselves in comics,” she said. “I also try to write about experiences that send a message of personal acceptance.”
