Sharing a few cartoon sketches that I made this week. I have discovered a new interest recently – of drawing cartoons.
I love Hello Kitty. I referred to a youtube video to make this.
And then, mamma asked me, “do you know the history of Hello Kitty? Do you know who first invented it?” And, I read up a bit on the internet. Got to know that Hello Kitty was first designed by Yuko Shimizu and was introduced in Japan in the year 1974. You can read more here.
And this is chihuahua the Chinese dog. The smallest dog in the world. There are some interesting stories about this dog breed that you can read here.
And now, here come Greg and Rodrick – from my favourite book – Diary of the Wimpy Kid (I’d reviewed this book).
I have drawn most of the characters from this book – Greg, his mom (Susan Heffley) and his brother (Rodrick)s as you can see in the drawings.
You know something – the author of this series (Wimpy Kid), Jeff Kinney, is the illustrator too. How impressive! Isn’t it?
And, one more character from Wimpy Kid. This is the father of Greg’s friend Rowley. He is a very weird character in the book. Yet, I like his funny looks.
And, hola! Here comes the funniest one from the Heffley family! This is Manny – Greg’s brother. Don’t you think his mouth is way too long, and his hair standing up like antenna look so funny? His teeth looks like a bunny’s. So big!
And finally the most popular cartoon character – Mickey Mouse. I loved Mickey when I was quite small. And, funnily enough, called him ‘Paposh’. That was when I couldn’t even talk properly. And, while I’m writing this, my mamma reminds me that I loved to have the Mickey picture on every possible thing – dress, food plate, bag, hair band and what not…!
And, as you all may know – Walt Disney was the creator of Mickey Mouse.
Oops, and some more. On the right is Ferb from the series – Philneas and Ferb. The other one is Susan Heffley (from Wimpy Kid).
That’s it for now. Will share more as and when I make.
