A creative single dad from Taiwan has crafted a gorgeous comic series that perfectly captures his life with his young son.
“I started this series right after my child was born in 2014,” Lan Shengjie aka BLUE told Bored Panda explaining that illustrating his life reminds him that the little things are often the big things. He had no idea that so many people would be touched by his work.
“When you have a kid, a lot of things happen unexpectedly. However, as I started drawing the surprising moments we shared, I didn’t think they would get such a huge positive response.”
These illustrations are a timeline of a little boy’s life, sweetly depicting everyday moments that most families will find familiar.
