From Ohio History Central
Terri Libenson is an American artist, graphic designer and cartoonist.
Terri Libenson was born in 1970. After growing up in Kingston, a suburb of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, she attended Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and studied art history and illustration. After graduation, she moved to Cleveland, Ohio and became a writer and illustrator for American Greetings.
In 1996, she married Michael Davis, an information technology project manager. Libenson works as a graphic designer at her home in Lyndhurst, Ohio, where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
In March 2006, Libenson began to write and draw a cartoon strip. Called "The Pajama Diaries," the strip follows Jill Kaplan, an artist raising two children at home. In 2006, King Features began to market the strip, and by July 2006, more than twenty newspapers had begun to print the daily comic. Libenson hoped to show the difficulties and fun of raising a family in the modern world. Unlike many other comic strips, Libenson intends her characters to age with the passage of time.
