Learn German with me…

Just don’t expect me to teach you anything useful.

But let’s start at the beginning. Like probably a lot of people out there, I really would love to be able to draw. Not to produce an oil painting worthy of the Louvre or anything like that, just so that I can turn a funny idea into an equally funny cartoon. Only I can’t. If I invest a few hours and tons of patience, I might be able to come up with something semi-decent, but I’m definitely not the kind of person who can within a few minutes sketch something that will make people go envious at the copious amounts of talent that must have been holding that pencil.

I pretty much suck at drawing. It’s a fact. Which means that usually, I picture those funny cartoons in my head, sigh, shrug, and move on. Now, though…

Like anyone who, like me, regularly moves between languages which share common roots, I keep stumbling over words which have the exact same spelling, but a completely different meaning. And I had this idea, and it began to fester, until I eventually thought, so what? So I can’t draw, but does it matter? I’m not here to win any prizes, or to pretend that what I’m doing is art. I’m here to entertain. Maybe make you laugh a bit.

Long story short, here’s the first in what may or may not become a series of hopefully funny cartoons. Like all my projects, don’t expect me to be overly reliable, and to post these things in regular intervals. Either way, hope you’ll enjoy my feeble efforts.

About angelikarust

My name is Angelika Rust. I was born in Vienna in 1977. These days, I live in Germany, with my husband, two children, a despotic couple of cats and a hyperactive dog. After having tried almost every possible job from pizza delivery girl to HR consultant, I now make a living knowing English. No, I haven’t yet figured out what I want to be when I grow up, whenever that may be. In the meantime, I write the occasional book.
