S. Andersen says that her comics are semi-biographical. „All the adventures are about myself, my friends and beloved animals“. According to the author, finding a story is not always easy and sometimes it takes from one hour to days to figure out what to draw. However, people tend to personalize with my comics that is why I am not calling her Sarah in the strips“, – says the author.
