Jenny-Jinya, a German artist, is taking her fans to tears once more with a new bittersweet comic. Her latest cartoon strip features a baby duck who is separated from his mother and siblings.
Jenny was the one who came up with the concept for her newest strip. “The concept had always been there. Even though it was a really slow country lane, a family of ducks was run over in front of my eyes. She told us, “It was brutality that could have been stopped so easily.” The rest of Bored Panda’s interview with the artist can be found below!
However, you should be aware that you may have to hold back tears and pretend to have something in your eyes. After reading Jenny’s comic, we may have already made plans to feed the ducks at the local park. Check out the illustrator’s other powerful comics here, here, and here when you’re done with this one.

The time it takes to draw a single comic, according to the illustrator, “varies greatly” from case to case. “It depends on how much time and effort I have to devote to certain topics. However, the drawing will take about a week.”
Jenny told PixieBrutus that she has been obsessed with drawing for as long as she can remember. “I drew before I could walk, according to my mum. When I was a kid, I picked up a pencil and never put it down. Yes, I’ve always wanted to be a musician. I wanted to create worlds and tell stories.”
But I have to take breaks now and then, days when I totally withdraw from art,” she said, adding that every artist has limits and needs to recharge. “Otherwise, I get really burnt out.”
“Many small artists are dissatisfied because they have yet to establish their own style or find their niche. But that’s fine. Jenny said, “It is something that cannot be rushed.” “It may sound strange, but let the artistry speak for itself. Finding your own personal style and niche is a process that requires time to master. There is no way around it.
Jenny explained what inspired her to draw the comic
Jenny has a sizable fan base, with over 174k Instagram followers, 140k Facebook likes, and 25k Twitter followers. The German artist addresses a variety of social problems involving animals in her comics.
“There are hundreds of posters and infographics with different information about animals that have been neglected or abused. Many know the problems, but such information is quickly forgotten,” Jenny explained to pixiebrutus. “Through my comics, I strive to give victims a voice. I want the affected pets to be able to tell their own stories. I’m hoping that by doing so, I’ll be able to raise awareness.”
Jenny imagines Death as a character who “is only doing their work,” according to Jenny.
“People despise them for what they do, so someone has to do it in the end. She said, “I like to picture Death as a gentle and perceptive being.” “For all I know, we may be playing the universe’s greatest MMORPG, but there’s no way of knowing.”
“Now go and hug your pet!” she added.
Jenny is a freelance illustrator pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media at the HAWK University of Applied Science. She’s been immersed in art for as long as she can recall, with her first exhibits taking place when she was just 16 years old.
