Hi everyone. My name's Lauren Katz. I'm a cartoonist who occasionally dabbles in writing. I've been drawing since i was 3 and writing since 10th grade. I grew up mostly on classics like Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Felix the cat, and Betty Boop. Also lots of the 90's cartoons like Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Hey Arnold, etc.

I used to want to be a cartoon character so bad when i was little that i figured that i should make my own characters that i could relate to, so instead of trying to be like them, they were already me, or small parts of my personality.

I'm inspired primarily by Peanuts and South Park. Peanuts because I like that kind of sweetness and sentimentality in my comics, a sort of innocence i like in my comics and artwork. South Park because of the subject matter my art will occasionally touch, and i usually try to give it a certain sweetness regardless, or with some sort of moral.

Well that's enough about me for now. Feel free to browse my gallery ^_^

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wanna get some rules down because of stuff that's happened recently as a result of me being an idiot.

NEVER ask for my cell number, the last time someone i met on DA did, he took control over my cellphone plan and started paying for it for months, this sounds nice right? Well considering the significant age differences between us, i found it really creepy, and no matter how many times i asked him to stop, he wouldn't do it. Sometimes he would also sometimes try to stop without warning.

This person put himself in a position of control that went to the point that i was trying to get him a thing on my first trip out of the country and I was afraid to say no because he was paying for my phone, he also wanted to call my hotel room. Keep in mind this person was a lot older than me. My mom didn't like him too, reasonably so. This kept me walking on eggshells on a regular basis.

When I said I didn't think him calling my hotel room was a good idea, he turned the crocodile tears on, went on to ask "Oh, you just don't wanna talk to me, right?!" This made me feel guilty and i started to kiss his ass. Classic emotional manipulation, but at the time i was just trying to get through it.


With that being said, I've developed a lot of trust issues. I WILL become weary of anyone who asks for my number, no matter how good of friends we are on here.

Now I know what you're thinking "Well, maybe it'll be different with me, that guy was a tool but not everyone is like that." If you wanna say that, hold on. I hated talking on the phone BEFORE I gave him my number, and afterwards it only gave me anxiety that made me not wanna even look at my phone, let alone make calls. I STILL feel this way. I felt this way WHILE I was still talking to him. So yeah, no one's a special snowflake here.

You're probably thinking I'm an asshole for telling you this, well, heads up, I've been traumatized. I haven't even told you the whole story but believe me, it was a ridiculous situation, and I was walking on eggshells for months. After this person stopped being my friend, I was extremely happy, i didn't even end it, he did, just out of nowhere, he just unfriended me and sure i was upset but then I got over it. And all this happened was because I didn't set boundaries, and he didn't respect the ones I set up in the first place, and by then it was too late.

So yeah, I'm not sorry for sounding like an asshole here, I think I have every right to say what I want, considering I was the one who went through all this emotional scarring over something that could have been avoided.

ANYONE WHO DOESN'T RESPECT MY PERSONAL BOUNDARIES, CONSIDER YOURSELF CUT OUT OF MY LIFE. FUCK YOU.

Interests
and i don't wanna be jealous but I'm kinda jealous. not because she'd be on TV but that there's the chance she'd get famous before me. UUUGHHH. WHAT THE HELL??!! I should think of it like this though, if she gets accepted to do this show, she'll be out of my hair for a few months, and besides, why wouldn't she get accepted? she's thin, pretty, kind of a bitch, and this show's in LA so she'd be a shoe-in.

I guess i just don't want to be known as the pretty girl's sister, you know? or hell i don't wanna ride on anyone's coattails, i wanna be successful on my own merits.
