1. What is Rainy Days all about?

Rainy Days first started as a trash bin blog for Mara Liem's doodles - drawings she'd create when the weather was so bad that she'd prefer to stay in and create a new world from her warm and cozy appartment - inspired by anything that caught her eye; pets, the window view, the crockery set, food, computers and devices, and anything else in close range. Main themes are shelter, friendship, hermitage and the imaginary.
After a while, the style developed into a more consistent one, and the subjects and objects in it - including the main character, although at first resembling Mara herself a lot - started to manifest more and more on their own. The blog turned into fiction.
The pages were rebuild as part of Mara's portfolio and extended with some nice additional features, such as the sketchbook with copies of analogue drawings, a shop, an ecard service, a search engine, an RSS feed and a mailing list.
Rainy Days is here to inspire, to emphasise the little things in life and to bring a smile upon your face.
