30 Honest And Relatable Motherhood Comics By French Artist Nathalie Jomard

Published 6 months ago

No matter what anyone says, sometimes parenting can be a real challenge – just ask French illustrator Nathalie Jomard. She illustrates all of her parenting struggles in funny, and honest comics that everyone who has ever had kids will find relatable.

The artist has two children, a boy and a girl, so she knows what parenting is all about. She has been creating drawings about her and her children’s lives on her blog Petit précis de Grumeautique for over ten years now.

“My daughter is a nerd. A very, very smart, quiet, and somewhat clumsy girl. She’s always reading a book and she’s also a scatterbrain just like her mother. My son is a nerd too but in a different way than his sister,” says the artist. “He is also very active and turbulent. He can’t stay still. He’s always jumping and running around, and he talks a lot. Really, he can’t stop talking. A real chatterbox. He’s always inventing something, drawing weird devices and talking about them for hours and hours.”

Nathalie says that having kids has definitely changed her life for the better – and made her more tired than she used to be. “But with kids, who isn’t?” jokes the artist. “They are, nonetheless, the best gifts life can give you.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
