Let us present to you Sofia Warren, a talented cartoonist, writer and animator from the United States! She’s been a cartoonist for The New Yorker since 2017 and has also contributed to MoMA magazine, Narrative Magazine, and Catapult, to name a few. Her illustrations catch attention with beautiful drawings as well as clever and witty remarks that one might find weirdly relatable.
Bored Panda got in touch with Sofia to get to know a bit more about her and her creative process. The first question we asked was how her journey as a cartoonist started. This is what she answered: “Crossed paths with the Devil on a dark and dirty street. He said, ‘I can see you’re down on your luck, kid. How about a deal?’ Fame, fortune, the high life, He offered me, all for the low, low price of my soul. I said that sounded pretty good, and to take the damn thing. The Devil gave my soul a once-over, noting the holes, the soot and the grime. He wrinkled his nose. ‘OK, you know I can’t give you full price for this,’ said the Devil, pointing to an especially pronounced stain. ‘What is this, ketchup?’ (it was Chianti). But I’m no quitter, so I haggled and wheedled and now here I am, living my life of discount-bin celebrity. I think I got a pretty good deal.”
