The Artist Represents Life With Dog Everybody Can Relate To

Gemma Gené loves her pug Mochi so much he’s the inspiration for her adorable comics. Over 130,000 people follow her work on Instagram.

She explained how it all started: “I missed my pug Mochi so much while I was at work that I started drawing about him on the subway on my way to and back from work.” That’s how these adorable comics were born.

Gemma doesn’t only draw cute comics. She’s a multi-talented artist from Barcelona living in New York who draws, paints, and creates sculptures. See her work below and follow her on Instagram for more!

My niece Sofia is staying with us and apparently she likes to sleep with her legs sticking out of the bed 🤷🏻‍♀️. One day I was trying not to wake her up while I was waking between her bed and a chair. Mochi was following me and I thought giving the fact he can actually walk under the chair, the table and around Sofia’s legs he wouldn’t wake her up. Of course Mochi decided to follow the exact same path I used and unapologetically walking over her 🙄 ……………………. Mi sobrina Sofia está de visita y aparentemente le gusta dormir con las piernas fuera de la cama🤷🏻‍♀️. Un día intenté pasar entre ella y una silla sin despertarla con Mochi siguiéndome. Teniendo en cuenta que Mochi puede pasar sin problema por debajo de la silla, la mesa y entre los pies de Sofia y la silla pensé que no la despertaría. Claramente pensé mal, porque Mochi siguió mi camino sin importarle nada. Pasó en línea recta atropellando las piernas de Sofia y quedándose tan ancho 🙄

Since yesterday was @Violet_pug 's birthday, I am reposting this drawing that was inspired by her 💜. Mochi (like Violet) loves going for walks but he gets tired very easily and expects to be carried…He lets me know by sitting without warning. I am walking and when I turn around Mochi is far away sitting in a walk protest… ……………………….. M: Esto es una protesta contra los paseos! No puedes forzarme a caminar cada día! Como ayer fue el cumple de @violet_pug, hoy cuelgo esta viñeta antigua que está inspirada en ella 💜. A Mochi (como a Violet) le encanta salir a pasear pero se cansa muy rápido y pretende que lo lleve en brazos…Me lo hace saber sentándose sin avisar. Yo voy andando tranquilamente y cuando me giro lo veo a 2km sentado en forma de protesta…

When I was working as an architect, my boss, #stevenholl, invited all the office to his lake house. It was the first time Mochi saw a lake and he didn't know it was water. The first thing he did was to jump in it thinking it was ground. We had to fish him out of the water 😂 Mochi was very disappointed. Swipe to see the photos. ……………………………. M: Sr.Holl, uno se esperaría de un arquitecto reconocido como usted, que pusiera barandillas… Cuando trabajaba como arquitecta, mi jefe, Steven Holl, invitó a toda la oficina a su casa del lago. Mochi numca había visto un lago antes y no sabía que era agua. Lo primero que hizo fué saltar al lago pensándose que era tierra. Lo tuvimos que rescatar, a Mochi no le hizo nada de gracia 😂❤️.
