I'm Lauren and I make comics and stuff.

There’s a certain gritty, self-deprecating vibe to the characters in Lauren Monger’s comics; her main character is Clementine, a punk rock opossum, and the rest of the ensemble includes characters that are equally angst-y and heartwarming, all at once, with bonus points for animal faces. In addition to themes of class, mental illness, and finding your way through the shitstorm that is life, these comics sort of smack you in the face in the best kind of way with their raw presentation and straightforward and vulnerable subject matter, while still managing to be funny and surreally weird slash strangely uplifting.
Read on to find out what inspires L. Mo, how she started making comics, and what other kinds of art she dabbles in.

Did an interview with Silver Sprocket and hopefully didn’t embarrass myself too much!

Hey, so I would have liked to have had more stuff up before making a post about it, but I made a couple more designs for Society6. They’re doing another one of their free worldwide shipping things so if you’re interested, click here! Valid through the 14th.

Also pictured: My first ever attempt at screenprinting. Hopefully maybe I’ll get that down pat at some point so I can make handmade stuff to sell, which is infinitely cooler. My first time could have gone a lot worse I guess!

Other people should take pics of their Space Face stickers like Ghosttthead did.

Sorry updates have been slow! I am working on cool things I promise.

Anyways not long ago I got a little 3.5x5.5” sketchbook that I’ve been treating mostly as a journal. But here are a few sketches from it.

I’d like to get into the habit of doing diary comics but I don’t think I have the time right now! Also I am painfully uninteresting.

Couple of album arts I did not too long ago. One was for Drainpuppet and the other for Council of Rats.

Was out of town for a bit so here are some pretty clichéd junk scribbles from my sketchbook
