Sushmita Rao – Cappuchinnu

Cappuchinnu is an amazing comicartist from India! We love her funny, cute, wonderful, full of life, a little bit sarcastic, beautifully thought pieces of art! Every WhataWonderfulWomensWorld volunteer sees herself into her comics. More than one time she put a smile on our faces with her amazing art! And we thank her for spreading sunshine into our days!

How would you describe yourself?

You can call me a doodler or a comic artist, as I make comics based on my everyday life experiences.

How would you describe your art?

My life itself is a big motivation to me, instead of being sad about every little thing that keeps knocking me down on my knees every now and then, I choose to rather make a comic about it and laugh out loud and stand back up!

How would you describe your field?

I am not sure if what I am doing right now can be named a journey yet, as I have started doing what I do only recently and also, don’t consider myself that big compared to the other artists online, but this is purely an escape for me, an escape from my everyday job, from people and all the chaos, I feel good whenever I take up my pen/mouse to draw or make comics.

What do you want to say through your art?

To be honest, like I keep mentioning that I make comics about my everyday life, most of my comics are based on those instances that keep happening with me. So it includes all the typical conversations with my mom, dad, friends and so on.

My style is a simple form of a doodle that I can create whenever I get time since I work full time and make comics in my free time.

What / Who inspires you?

I never had thought that my comics would be relatable to other people but I guess it has found its way to its own kind of people through the internet!

I find it very unusual that there are a lot of people who find my comics ‘relatable’ to themselves because I was under the notion that all these things only keep happening to me, but then again the world is strange, isn’t it?

Although, I’m really glad that I have found an audience whom I can share my comics with 😊

Does your work comment on your social or political issues?

I try to keep my comics fun and friendly for everyone, even kids, so I try to keep it as simple and as relatable as possible and not try to complicate it by adding issues to it.

What obstacles have you faced?

The Only obstacle I believe I have faced is not being able to promote my art/comics as much as other artists who can afford to pay for ads and creating a website for themselves since I currently do not earn through my comics. (I hope I do in the future)

What is the best advice you could give to someone entering the same industry as you?

Start whenever you feel like you should, although they say that it is away ‘Better late than never’, I was quite late in putting all my heart into it and wasted a lot of time doing nothing. There’s just a tiny regret to IF I had started drawing earlier, I would have gotten to where I am right now, a very long time ago.

On a more pragmatic level have you been supported during your project?

I have a small army of fans that keep supporting me and send me messages that help me keep going on, all my friends and family who keep asking me to do whatever my heart tells me to and not think about anything else, what else could I ask for 😊
