Brian Gordon is a cartoonist and dad, with two kids, age 4 and 7. He previously worked as a card artist at Hallmark for 18 years, but was recently laid off. Since then he's been working hard as an independent cartoonist, creating Fowl Language Comics, a strip about the agony and the ecstasy of raising young ones, as seen through duck avatars. 

Despite the presence of anthropomorphic ducks, it is very true to life, as he explains:

Fowl Language is inspired by my struggles as a parent, my fascination with geeky subcultures, and a constant, crushing wave of self-doubt and anxiety.

Gordon posts his brilliant comics almost every day. Here are just ten:
