Funny not Slutty of the Week – Daniela Muhawi

Humorist and artist Daniela Muhawi of Seafood Punch is Funny not Slutty of the Week. Her website is a holistic attempt at controlling a mild case of ADD by listing everything that goes on in the her head in a relatively orderly fashion. Daniela also provided most of the incredible cartoons among the pages of  The Funny not Slutty Big Blog Book. She has granted a little interview for us at FnS.

Funny not Slutty of the Week – Daniela Muhawi

It seems your work has themes such as food and diet, health and germs, self improvement and self esteem… How do you define the main themes of your art?

I love drawing food with faces. Ironically, I’d probably never eat anything if it was looking back up at me. (I’ll have to write a post about the goat-head incident now that you’ve reminded me about it.) Ideas comes to me while I write. Since I tend to write about animals, fat animals, food and food that makes you fat…that will typically be the stuff I illustrate. I occasionally like to incorporate real facts in my writing and art too. Unfortunately, I lost all credibility when I drew an angelic hotdog with a halo. I typically try and keep things entertaining, goofy and based on real facts…but I’ll slip once in a while.

I only know you are not originally from the US because you talk about it. You have assimilated into our culture so well, you cannot tell. Was that just in your nature, or did you purposefully observe and mimic what was around you? Do you think your brilliance in noticing what is in the minds of our society stems from an outsider’s perspective?

God no. I WANTED to be “the foreigner”. I held on to my accent for as long as I could! With an accent, you can get away with saying the dumbest things and still sound smart…CUTE even. It still took me a while to adjust when I came back here as a junior in High School: I thought a great fashion statement consisted of an oversized shirt with a wolf’s head plastered on the front, baggy mens’ pants and a uni-brow. It was all the rage in Europe OK?!. We all have a talent for making fun of our society and ourselves fairly well, no matter where we’re from. You just have to learn not to take anything seriously.

You blog about your current unemployment status. What would you like to do if you could do anything?

I’ve always loved Marine Biology and am still fascinated with the thousands of creatures that sit, scuttle and squirm undiscovered at the bottom of the ocean. I’m a little more realistic now, though, and the only dangerous exploring I do is in the back of my fridge. To answer your question, I would love to be a travel writer, Marketing guru, wildlife expert (did you know I used to be a parrot trainer?…another proud moment for me) or professional blogger/cartoonist.
