Meet Gemma Gené, an architect based in New York and her adorable pet Mochi. She started drawing comics about living with her dramatic pug on her way to work by subway. When she posted the comics on Instagram they immediately got very popular! What she thought was so special about her relationship with Mochi turned out to be very common in many dogs/human relationships.
In the comic Gemma tells little cute and funny stories of how it is like to live with a dog today, where dogs are treated like humans. She believes that sharing the story of living with Mochi has changed how people see dogs. Today the comic 157ofgemma has more than 100k followers on Instagram and a book on the way. It allowed her to quit her day job at a New York architect’s office and more importantly, spend all day with Mochi!
Check out in the gallery below some examples of comics that Gemma post at least three every week. To stay tuned with the lives of this simpatico trio (Gemma, Mochi and Gemma’s husband) make sure to follow the Instagram account 157ofgemma. More info: Website
Mochi lives happily in Bushwick and works very hard every day inspiring cartoons.
