Artist Makes Hilarious Comics About Motherhood

Hilarious Russian artist Luba Sobol is here to show that parenting is the toughest job on the planet. The young mom began drawing comics based on her experience of being a mother when her son was only 9 months old.

“He is my first child and I never imagined that being a mom is such hard work,” Sobol shared on Bored Panda. “But as it turned out, you can have quite a lot of fun even when your life is turned upside down by the little man. When you sink into your daily routine, the best you can do is laugh. I laugh at situations and at myself and it helps me to stay afloat in this sea of merciless motherhood.”

At the beginning, the artist used her smartphone for drawing, which turned out to be uncomfortable, but she couldn’t use drawing tools because her son required maximum attention.

“Now, my son is almost three years old and I feel relieved,” she added. “He doesn’t spend all the time in my arms, he can play on his own, he can say what he wants and he can make jokes although he doesn’t realize when he says something funny.”

All of her comics are based or inspired by real stories that happened in her family. Scroll down and check them out. Follow the arrows to see her comics in English.
