Hello! My name is Line Severinsen and I am a illustrator, animator and UX designer residing in Bergen, Norway. I studied animation at Emily Carr University in Vancouver Canada. I Currently work at Keyteq as a UX Designer / media artist.
In 2012 I started this cartoon as a personal diary when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was very exited to have the experience of carrying a child, and started to live healthier and prepare our house our little girl’s arrival. Soon I started noticing how the media painted pregnancy in such a glorious light, completely leaving out many of the negative things that many women experience. My experience was not exactly like those you read about! I grabbed my pencils, and got through the pregnancy with a good dose of humor and self-irony. When I saw my baby for the first time, it was completely worth it! Now I have two awesome kids:)
I shared my cartoon online, and the blog soon became popular. It was published each month in a magazine called “Mamma”. Lately my cartoon has been written about in over 100 online magazines / newspapers and viral sites such as The huffinton Post, Metro, TV2 and so on.
At the moment I have over 170k followes, and just published my first book with Aschehoug about the joys and struggles with pregnancy. Its Norwegian, I will have an english on out soon. Follow my social media profiles for more info soon. The book is a great gift for someone who is pregnant or who wants to take a trip down memory lane. “read about it here in Norwegian “Julegave til gravide“
