Hello!

My name is Luba Sobol. I’m an artist and a young mom from Russia.

I started to draw comics based on my experience of being a mother when my son was 9 months old. He is my first child and I never imagined that being a mom is such hard work!

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 first, I used a smartphone for drawing. It wasn’t comfortable because of the small screen but I couldn’t use other drawing tools because my baby required maximum attention.

Now, my son is almost three years old and I feel relieved. 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.

My comic strips are mostly based or inspired by real stories that occurred in our family. So it’s funny how so many people see themselves in my comics.

Maybe these stories happened in your family, too! Anyway, I hope you will enjoy!

Yup, remember my aunts saying I saw you the other day, I saw a really elegant lady pushing a prank and then I saw you, I believe I had three boxes of nappies wedged in every spare space and another under my arm whilst walking up hill

I feel like it is the equivalent of forgetting to take ur phone to the bathroom so you read what is within reach. Mommy's face is within reach, let's touch it and squish it!

I find it disturbing that so many comics about parenthood include alcohol. Is that so common in the US? In Germany it is very... unpopular to dring if you have toddlers or babys to care for.
