Interview With Artist: Artist Shares His Kitten Adoption Story In A Heartwarming Comic Without Using A Single Word

This Brazilian journalist, scriptwriter, and illustrator is a master of visual storytelling who creates a poignant storey that everyone can understand and feel without using words. Ademar Vieira’s emotional comics have previously been featured on this site twice.We presented some of Vieira’s best comics, ranging from the pandemic to parenting, and introduced the artist’s work with a viral cartoon called “The Choice,” which depicts what life is like when selecting to get a dog versus not having one.

This time, Vieira has created a real-life storey about adopting a kitten he didn’t think he needed at first, titled “The cat,” and dedicated to all cat lovers out there. The touching storey demonstrates how fulfilling life with a cat can be, and raises the question of who, after all, rescues whom. People save pets when they are in desperate need of a caring home, not realising that pets save them as well.

Vieira told Pixiebrutuscomics about the comic’s inspiration: “When I lived alone, one day a kitten emerged at the door of my flat.” I began to feed her, but I had no intention of adopting her. I was hoping for a neighbour to take her in, but that didn’t happen.She was always in the front of the house when I got home, waiting for a glass of milk and a snuggle. Until one day, when I came and she was nowhere to be seen. There was a period of time when I didn’t see her. I was scared something bad had happened to her, so I adopted her when she resurfaced. It was both a relief and a delight.”

Vieira admitted that he never pictured himself as a cat parent.

“I could never have imagined owning a cat as a pet when I was younger. I was single and assumed that having a cat would be impossible due to my lifestyle. He says, “It turns out she chose me nonetheless.”

After a while, he’ll probably be unable to envision his life without a cat by his side.

“We had a lot of fun together, and I enjoyed watching her use the different rooms in the house and try to have fun alone. I gradually understood how much I cared about her, as if she were a family member.”

We contacted Vieira for further information about the animal that inspired the comic:

The character ‘Gata-fera,’ which translates as ‘Wild Cat,’ has a really strong personality. She only gets affection when she wants it, and she has the ability to bite or scratch anyone who attempts to snuggle her when she doesn’t want it. She spends the most of her time hunting for strange locations to sleep and chasing the dogs around the house.On the other hand, when she wants to be sweet, she can be really sweet.”

“Sometimes we adopt a pet because we find them in a tough circumstance and think that we will be helping them out,” he continues, “but over time we learn that they are the ones helping us.” We save them at the time, but they continue to save us every day.”

“I believe that people who live with animals understand better than the general public that humans are not the owners of the world; we are merely tenants, like all other species. We are accountable for this planet and the consequences of our actions, and we must better care for it so that all living things have a shot at a good existence.To keep other species from going extinct is to keep ourselves from going extinct.”

We dug further into Vieira’s work and learned more about him. He distinguishes out not only for his artistic abilities, but also for his ability to express emotional stories without saying anything.

“Unlike most, my comic strips do not have three photos and balloons. They’re more like short films that portray life tales, full of emotion, criticism, and unexpected twists and turns.”

“My original language is Portuguese, and my objective was to make strips in Portuguese, but with as little conversation as possible,” the artist said how his idea for dialogue-free comics came about. I was able to complete a few without using conversation, and one of them went viral in multiple nations.I felt it was a dead end at that point, so I started adopting the no-dialogue format as a characteristic of my comic strip style.”

When we asked the artist about his inspirations, he stated, “The raw material of my stories is life.” “Some are things I’ve personally experienced, while others are the result of my observations of the world around me. Themes that I frequently discuss or consider inspire me.Some of these subjects are beliefs, points of view, or things that irritate me in some way, such as socioeconomic inequity and all the negative consequences that come with it.”
