Illustrator Liesbeth Ton creates comics that showcase some of the ridiculous things that can happen in a parent’s day-to-day life.
Ton, who is originally from the Netherlands and now lives in Los Angeles, shares her work at Betje.com(”Betje” is a variant of Liesbeth in Dutch). Many of Ton’s illustrations depict an all-too-real experience of life as a mom to three kids
“Someone once commented that I shouldn’t be nagging about parenting, as if it’s extremely difficult,” she said. “I never thought of it in a negative way, I just like to joke about the struggles.”
“It shows we all have the same struggles,” she said.
