If you have been following me, then you know, I love showcasing and shining the light on various artists, especially whose work features the beauty of the plus size woman, real life issues, and a bit of humor! Today’s artist, well, she is no different! Artist Maya Kern illustrates bits of her life and applies them to a cheeky and real comic strip that I HAD TO SHARE stat.

Maya’s work has been featured on Comics Alliance, io9, Daily Dot, Ladies Making Comics, Autostraddle, Girls in Capes, and First Inkling! Can we say impressed?
Well, be ready to be even more impressed with her latest comic strip, the “Real Life of Maya Kittenpoots Kern” that we are sharing with you today! Are you ready? Keep reading!
The “Real Life of Maya Kittenpoots Kern”
How dope is this strip? Aren’t you feeling a bit inspired? She has much more where this comes from! If THIS comic strip resonates with you or you think she is uber awesome, you can support Maya via Taptastic!
I wonder, if my life was a comic strip, what it would say and look like. I imagine many pics of me in my robe with my curls piled on top of my scarf, with my glasses! (that’s how it goes down in the office!) Either way, this Maya is pretty dope and I love her questions that she answers via Tumblr! Especially the one about her personal style! Too cute Maya!
