Only a parent can know what they go through and how they feel when they are going to have their first child. The excitement, the nervousness and everything that comes along is a totally new feeling for both of them but what when you are having your second child? There is a quite big difference between having your first vs second child. Everything changes right from how the kids are raised to completely different approaches to pregnancy. And luckily these changes were beautifully illustrated in comics by an incredible artist, VR game designer and a mom from China, Weng Chen who is currently living in the US.
Weng Chen was always fond of art and wrote on her website “When I was about 2, 3 years old, my mom drew me a little mermaid and told me the story. 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.”
But now Weng is focused on making illustrations and comics about her daily lives, dreams and the difference she went through while having the first Vs second child that’s her latest comics. 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.”
These comics that shows the difference between the first Vs second child is just oo honest and hilarious! Have a look!
