Becoming parents is one the best and the purest things in the world. It literally makes everything better. But newborns come with their own baggage of issues. It’s true that a woman goes through a lot of changes which alter her life and her body after the newborn but it’s not only the mother’s life that changes, a father’s life also changes drastically that nobody talks about.
A mother-kids bond has always been the subject of inspiration for many artists but Weng Chen decided to portray how the life of men changes after they become a father and her inspiration was her husband, James. Chen Weng, a Seattle-based game developer, illustrator, and mom of two goes by the name The Messycow and has made a comic series that show how her husband has changed after James became a father. Weng has been drawing since she was 2-year-old and becoming a parent is what got her back into creating comics.
“I don’t have big chunks of time to work, it’s always a couple hour in between chores and taking care of the kids”, Weng said.
