What is your main source of inspiration?

The main source of inspiration was something similar that had happened to me.

What motivated you to write this piece?

On the one hand, I want to share this truth with people through cartoons. On the other hand, I am the prototype of the protagonist of this story. I also want to encourage myself through this painting.

I was influenced by Maus (Art Spiegelman).
