Sarah Andersen grew up reading her favorite comic strips Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side. She went on to graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. During Andersen's senior year, one of her comics was accepted into the first-ever Comic and Cartooning Annual by the Society of Illustrators. Now, she makes her career as a full-time cartoonist and illustrator.
Anderson says this about Sarah's Scribbles: "I like making fun of myself and the world around me. My character, who is emotional, awkward, lazy and somewhat unstable, is a reflection of myself. I believe there are many universal qualities that most people have but don't necessarily talk about, and that's what I love to write about. My character is the complete opposite of cool, and drawing her is a relief because I can let my guard down and talk about what really makes up my inner world."
