About Brian Gordon

Brian Gordon



Andrews McMeel


A million years ago, Brian Gordon spent his time staying out late, hitting the clubs and eating at fancy restaurants.  And then suddenly…CHILDREN. While he loved being a dad more than anything else, he also noticed that at times, parenting can be a total crap-fest.  In the summer of 2013, Brian began drawing Fowl Language as a fun (and often profane) way to vent his frustrations over the day-to-day tedium and challenges of being a parent to two small children. After getting laid off in 2015 from his job as a greeting card artist, he decided to pursue the comic full-time. His work quickly became an internet viral sensation, and is seen and shared regularly by millions of people all over the world. The first collection of his work, Fowl Language: Welcome To Parenting, was published in March of 2016. His second book, Fowl Language: The Struggle is Real came out in October 2017 and his third book, Fowl Language: Winging It - The Fine Art of Imperfect Parenting will be released October 2019. When he’s not cartooning, Brian divides his time between keeping his kids alive and trying not to lose his mind in the process. He’s only good at the first thing.
