After graduating from university in Media and Communications in 2018, Sasha Tsoy wanted to do something more exciting that would involve some of her favorite hobbies. She started creating comics around that time when relatable girl comics were getting popular, and she joined the discourse adding her relatable situations while making a lot of women come closer seeing the struggles that we all face together as a gender.
“Making a fun comic about my struggles helps me feel better about them. Especially when after posting I truly understand how many people are there with me, feeling similar things. I like the sense of community with other people and women especially,” said Sasha when reached out by Earthwonders.
The artist said she gets a lot of positive feedback from people who like her comics, but on the other hand, there are negative feedbacks as well. “The reactions on my page are mostly positive! But when my comics reach some other corners of the internet, I do get a lot of hate too. From people telling me to kill myself to writing paragraphs detailing how much they hate my drawings. No one really prepares you with how to deal with stuff like this. Hopefully one day people will understand that my comics are meant to just be light-hearted entertainment and they realize that things like this shouldn’t cause such negative emotions.”
But for sure, if you’re a woman seeing these comics there will be at least one of these situations you will relate to. The best thing about these comics is to put some humor on the struggles we face daily and to know that we are no the only ones.
