Content by women that’s meant to empower other women - now that’s what I like to see. Lainey Molnar is a talented artist who creates relatable comics about self-acceptance, motherhood, refusing to adhere to social stereotypes, and freedom of choice. These clever and very current comics touch on everyday situations that even men might resonate with.

In the images below you’ll find some of Lainey’s most recent work. If you’d like to see more, check out our previous post about her.

Condoms ARE uncomfortable! I imagine they don't feel too comfortable for a woman either. [Start Dodgy infomercial voice now] That's why you need... LUBE. Simply place a little inside the condom for more comfortability for YOU, and plenty on the outside for your partner. Don't forget to trim your pubes to avoid 'snagging'. LUBE! So from us here at LUBE, we say to you: Don't be a prick, put a condom on your d**k. But make sure you remember, to add some lube your member.

“I have a miles and miles-long 'Illustration Ideas' list on my phone, I sometimes literally wake up in the middle of the night to write down new ones and I grab my phone to make notes at any point when I see something inspiring,” the artist told Bored Panda about her creative process. “When I sit down to draw I just go through the list and see what I resonate with at that moment. I draw digitally on an iPad and sometimes I just binge-watch tv shows at the same time, but usually, I like to create an ambiance, like candles, incense, and good music, because I believe the vibes and emotions also go into every artwork.”

I have a PhD, work full time at a university as as scholar and project manager and also work in a café/bar on weekends (just because I enjoy the company and change of scenery; scholars can be really dull). It*s really amusing how SOME people treat me differently, depending on the context. Helps determine who is cool and who is not. Moral? Always treat others with respect

When asked whether she has any personal favorites out of her illustrations, Lainey said it’s the one where she compares “someone with physical health struggles” and “someone with mental health struggles”: “It's this illustration because it is extremely personal. I struggled with my mental health for 18 years of my life and I know how hard it is to live with invisible illnesses people around us can just shrug off. I usually process female empowerment topics in either a straightforward or funny way, but at the end of the day we are all simply human beings and I find it crucial to address stigmatized topics because it gives so many of us relief to know that we are not alone.”

Unless your health problems are invisible and chronic. Then most people (including doctors) do not care

Talking about “creative block,” Lainey is happy to have not had experienced it too much before: “If something, I have too much to say. In an ideal world, a lot of what I'm communicating would be obvious, but as we're not there yet, I don't mind processing the same pain points over and over again via a visual medium, because the feedback is overwhelmingly positive and it's not something one sees on social media a lot so that's definitely an endless source of motivation.”

Lainey says she is inspired by artists like Adam EllisTiny Moron, and Wowocomics: “They all have very different styles and a very different sense of humor, but I think it always comes down to personality that shines through the art, so there is space for all unique creators to show how they perceive the world. I don't think it's about being great with technical details like anatomy skills or shading, but it's the vision and purpose that matters.”

Except the racoon, since owning wild animals does harm them.

As for her future endeavors, Lainey shared: “I just started working on the biggest project of my career and that is writing and illustrating a book. I'm a huge bookworm and I worked in publishing and was a blogger for more than half a decade—hence why my captions are also as important as the illustration itself—so I really hope that I can create something magical that will help women be happier and more liberated from societal expectations.”

The very definition of natural is 'existing in or derived from nature'. Your body is natural until you have an unnatural change. Pregnancy is one of the most natural things there is!

I needed this. I’m short and flat and small for my age. When someone says they’re jealous I always think they are joking.

And both require a lot of hard work, practicing, and other words that I'm not smart enough to know. (I used to be a ballet dancer and Im assuming about the other one...)

Exactly. We need to degenderise our society. There is no right or wrong way of being a woman or a man. Just be you, dont change for a sexist outdated society.

I can confirm. After having spent 35 years of insecurity over different aspects of my body, now that I am pregnant and my body is growing another human being, I'm astonished and very very satisfied with my body even though it has changed enormously.
