Parents know, that there are some quite big differences between having your first and second children. From different approaches to pregnancy, to slightly different ways the kids are raised once born. And these changes were beautifully illustrated by Weng Chen – an incredible artist, VR game designer and a mom from China, currently living in the US.
Weng Chen was always close to the world of art. “When I was about 2, 3 years old, my mom drew me a little mermaid and told me the story,” she wrote on her website. “I was fascinated, it was like magic that the most beautiful picture just came from my mom’s pen. I believe that was when I fell in love with drawing and storytelling.”
Now she focuses on drawing comics about her dreams and daily lives raising her two daughters, Electra, the firstborn, and Ali, the secondborn, together with her husband. “Messycow comics were started with an impulse. I didn’t spend any time designing anything, just dove in and started drawing.”
Her latest series of comics explain the differences between the firstborn and the secondborn children and the strips are hilarious. What do you think?
