Marelou Janzen (mejanzen) is a Graphic Designer and Animator based out of Alberta, Canada. Rebecca highlights some of her favorite animated shorts made by Marelou, and the two discuss art, design and animation -- and the often difficult path of following your dreams. Marelou and Rebecca also talk about the adventures of living abroad, her Filipino heritage, food and karaoke.
One of the recurring themes of the conversation is motherhood. Marelou and Rebecca discuss the challenges of keeping up with your career as a stay-at-home-mom, the importance of "mom friends", and how creating art can both keep your skills sharp while also being therapeutic.
You can find her series of comics, "Life in Doodles by Mejanzen," on LifeInDoodles.com and on her Instagram and Twitter @mejanzen
