So I’ve spent the last hour of so being tickled. Now, I recently became acquainted with Felly Oyuga Owiro, a 38 year-old mom of four. Her children are aged between 7 – 15 years. What Felly does, and so humorously so, is tell stories through comic illustrations. I’ve been going through her work over the last hour, and that’s why I say I’ve been tickled. Felly is the creator and writer of the webcomic Adua Chronicles.
Going through Felly’s pieces has made me absolutely heart this kind of storytelling. I’ve been particularly jazzed by some of the tales she creates that touch on being a woman, being a mother and being a wife. The realities of life that we all go through as women and moms. Some of her illustrations remind me so much of my mom, and then when I reflect on some of the things I tell my boys today, I realize that I have become my mom! Have a look at some of them below.
Being a woman…
I love Felly’s work and I’ll be talking to her about how we can work together. I would love to spice up some of my articles with some of her illustrations. Felly by the way has just published her first book titled Aminata, which is an urban tale for young girls. You can see more about that here.
