A comic called “The Pajama Diaries” has been launched by King Features Syndicate.
Terri Libenson’s humor strip focuses on Jill Kaplan, an independent and introspective suburban woman balancing her career as a freelance graphic artist with family life (she has a husband and two young daughters). Jill speaks in first person, narrating her daily life in a journal and on a blog.
“The Pajama Diaries” was inspired by the cartoonist’s life. Libenson has worked for American Greetings as a writer/illustrator since 1993, and created the “Got A Life” comic that was syndicated by King Features Weekly Service for two years. The Cleveland resident has a husband and two young daughters.
“In my mind, ‘The Pajama Diaries’ echoes what so many women are thinking, and also provides an opportunity for others to peek inside the thoughts of a modern, multitasking mom,” said Libenson. “My strip addresses motherhood, work, relationships, feminist issues, and even marital intimacy — all from a first-person point-of-view.”
Early clients include the Albany, N.Y., Times Union, the Detroit Free Press, the Denver Rocky Mountain News, The Oregonian of Portland, The Sacramento Bee, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, among others.
