James Breakwell is a father of four girls, we can understand his life must be pretty chaotic.
Still, James finds the time to create comics about the everyday life of a modern family. He cuts some corners when it comes to forming, but it’s the content that counts.
“I’m a professional comedy writer and amateur father of four girls, ages nine and under,” James told Bored Panda. “As far as artistic background, I have none whatsoever. The look of my comics is inspired by the stick figures on the doors to public restrooms. I can’t draw at all, but I try to be consistently bad in the same ways every day. That way it looks like a deliberate stylistic choice rather than just me being awful.”
“The comics follow the adventures of a dad, mom, four daughters, and two pet pigs as they navigate the challenges of everyday life. They’re like my tweets, but in panel form.”
“My kids are the starting point for almost all of my jokes,” he said. “Even if they don’t ride wolves or launch each other from catapults. At least I hope they don’t. I haven’t checked on them in a while. Everybody’s kids are weird, and my comics celebrate that. Anyone who says they have normal children is lying.”
James started creating comics because he wanted to tell jokes he couldn’t on Twitter. “Comics let me be a little more out there,” he explained. “I can draw my kids with flamethrowers without anyone reporting me to CPS.”
“Plus, in the comics, my kids never get older. With my Twitter jokes, I have to keep updating their ages, and eventually, they’ll be adults. But in my comics, they’ll be young forever. That way I can keep telling kid jokes. My children are going to put me in a terrible nursing home.”
