We Can So Relate To Sketchy Muma

  • Parents Only

By: Phoebe Ackland, ellaslist

Anna Lewis, Cornwall mother of one is the brilliant mind (and hand) behind Sketchy Mama – the funny and heartwarming illustrations of the experiences she documented whilst pregnant and being a mum.

Her cartoons are now being shared all over Facebook, for the parenting “universal truths” she so simply and quirkily captures. “The first year of motherhood is so intense and so consuming but you forget so quickly what it’s like and I want to document it all for her [daughter] and other new mums”, says Anna. What was once simply a “creative outlet” she enjoyed in the evenings, Anna’s cartoons have since grown into a  popular Facebook following of almost 15,000, and a popular shop on Esty. 

Here are some of our favourite Sketchy Muma illustrations- we just LOVE number 10!
