Regular BOLO attendees will know Janet of Cartoon-Coloured Glasses well as her cartoons have been a favourite at this event in the past. The way she manages to capture the everyday moments of raising two young boys – and the absolute hilarity of those moments – is sweet, tender, and oh so funny.
Every parent can relate to panels that capture the way kids love their stuffies (and how we can’t resist buying them more); the way mittens and gloves for kids never seem to work quite right; and the way a simple walk around the block can turn into an hours-long outdoor adventure. It’s the little things that would maybe pass in and out of memory in any other life, but Janet turns them into golden memories, the kind of posts that make us remember our own similar moments. The mom, dad, and kids in her strips are unique and expressive – but at the same time universal, as well all nod along in full agreement. We’ve been there, too.
Janet has a real knack, too, for setting up her posts and panels with a big punchline payoff. So come and chuckle along with Janet and her family at Blog Out Loud.
