I started to draw caricatures of people back in junior high school, when I realized that (most) human faces look funny, as compared to the face of a proboscis monkey, for example. Now I draw comic strips because I've realized that most of what humans are doing (or thinking) is funny, as compared to what all the other non-human animals are doing. Some people write comedies, I draw comedies.
I still remember the expressions of my high school math tutor's face, when he was yelling after his boisterous young students, using his favorite noise-suppressing catchy mantra: "Quel charabia, quel galimatias!"
Hence, my pen name: Sharabia. The language used in my Gravatar is Vietnamese.
