My name is Arisa Veeravitayases. I started creating Koffee Kat Story comics with my friend Thawatchai Chunhachai during the pandemic in 2019 as we were spending so much time at home with my dog. Our comics are about everyday struggles and little funny moments that people of all ages can relate to. Koffee Kat, our main character, is like a very innocent kid who has the best intentions but can sometimes be too optimistic. Like many of us, she believes in hard work but has too many interests. Mabbit is her pet animal just like my dog Roxy, she knows she's cute and she's not afraid to use it for her own gain.
Our best ideas come from our daily night walks. We'd be talking about random things and it would just spark ideas for our comics. After a while, the characters become clearer to us. Because Koffee Kat is so much like me, drawing these comics is a great way to understand myself and other people around me better. It's a great feeling when we see comments like "this is me every single day." Sometimes reading the comments makes the comics even funnier for me. We wanted our comics to be relatable and positive. I hope our comics put a smile on people's faces and relax them after a busy day at school or work. We have a lot of fun creating these.
Right now we're working on some exciting new projects for Koffee Kat. If you're curious, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
