Interview with Sara Berntsson

Name: Sara Berntsson
Story: Just Playing

1. Tell me a little about yourself. How long have you been active as a comic artist and what have you been up to?

When I got into the Comic Art School in Gävle was when I first started really making comics. Since then I've made my fanzines Otaku, which is about manga fandom, and Misc, which contains mixed comics.

2. Why did you want to participate in this project?

I participated last year, since the theme of the anthology is one of my favorite subjects. It was really fun, and surprisingly challenging to portray sex in a comic, so I defineately wanted to explore it more this time.

3. Have you drawn any erotic comics or incorporated sex in your stories before?

The comic I made for SCS2 was my first time drawing sex in comics.

4. What has been the most difficult and challenging thing about this project?

Trying to create a believable sense of sensuality, staying away from clichées and instead bringing some of your honest feelings. Even though my comic is quite simple and silly, for me it was hard to not think about what other people might read into me by reading the comic.

5. What has been the most fun part?

Being able to connect with other comic artists by giving and getting feedback.

6. What are you up to now and where are you heading? Any plans?

Right now I'm working as a freelance illustrator, mostly drawing cute stuff for kids (quite different from this, hehe).
