Pursuit of Passion - creations of cartoons

Greek keyboardist and composer quotes, "All you need is passion. If you have a passion for something, you'll create the talent." ~Kindly Read the previous post on Passion, "Live with passion-Live Your Passion" and then read ahead...

Above drawing made on PaintBrush - Yr.2003
My favorite people/pioneer souls who have inspired me in certain way with their leisure novelty pursuits of Passion in creativity are as follows:-
I really love the start in the lane of thoughts and innovations with legends…
~ They could have created code to their original art/work but they preferred to be Creative and flaunt their euphoric ideas, hence the commitment and consistent urge to do the best is incredible!

  • R.K.Laxmanthe common Man
~ Early morning when I wake up, the first thing that I look is my newspaper and of course it has to be Times of India. I look for the amused thoughts of the The Common Man of India. The Common Man cartoon creation belongs to R.K.Laxman Sir (Rasipuram Krishnaswamy Iyer Laxman), yet we all owe and share our thoughts with it. He joined The Times of India, in the beginning of his career that has spanned for over fifty creative years. I consider his presence in the newspaper, a stunning revolution of churning history of India.

  • Creativity-Churn
~ Coming from the small town Mysore, Karnataka, he always loved drawing since childhood. The doodling he made was very much praised by the teachers at school. He applied to the esteem school of arts in Bombay hoping to concentrate on his lifelong interests of drawing and painting. But the dean of the school could not recognize the legend in him and refused the admission saying that he lacked “the kind of talent to qualify for enrollment in our institution as a student". He finally graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Mysore. In the meantime he continued his freelance artistic activities and contributed cartoons to other forums. His distinctive illustrations in several books, most notably for the Malgudi stories written by his elder brother R.K. Narayan are very memorable.

R.K.Laxman is an Indian cartoonist, illustrator, and humorist. Perhaps, India's greatest-ever cartoonist who embraces the solitaire idea of creativity in creating cartoons in The Common Man of India. Perhaps, his distinctive illustrations and creativity marks away high where his passion also made him penned a few novels too.
His cartoons distinctive rolling acts reflecting the humor, absorbing the facts delights every mind! Such powerful art he posses and have been flaunting for ages!

~ Advertisements are many in India yet nothing can score higher and privileged than the iconic Amul girl, which turns 44 this year, is all set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for being the longest running campaign in the world.
The White Revolution heralded by Amul under the leadership of Dr.Verghese Kurien boosted India's milk production, which ranked at No. 21 in the world based on the milk production during the year 2007 making a journey with the revolutionary ads sharing the success with this original creation of Amul girl.

~ Eustace Fernandes, the creator of the Amul girl, passed away at the age of 75. He is again the finest remembered as a cartoonist and an illustrator for his very cute creation of the Amul girl, dressed up in polka dots with blue hair and orange face, which ruled the hearts of millions of Indians, since 1966. The ad became a roar with the tagline 'Utterly butterly delicious Amul'.

Today, Amul outdoor advertising uses billboards, with a humorous take on current events and is updated frequently but with the trace of Amul girl looks.

The Limca logo, the early LIC ads, cosmetic ads and James Finlay (fashion brand) were all created by this creative genius brilliant artist. He supported the "Sneha Sadan - A home for homeless children" org. for more than 45years unleashing heart.
And I bow him completely for his excellence in a very delightful presence of Amul girl which have influenced me a lot in my girl oriented drawings unconsciously in rachi creations..

  • Walter Elias "Walt" DisneyMickey Mouse

~ Childhood and cartoons are interlinked. A cute Mickey mouse pops in mind immediately. Walt Disney got the inspiration for Mickey Mouse from his old pet mouse he used to have on his farm. Mickey Mouse, a cartoon character with big round ears and with white gloves was created by Walt Disney in 1928.

~ Passionate Walt Disney was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon and philanthropist. He dropped out of high school at the age of sixteen to join the Army, but the army rejected him because he was underage. Latter he served the Red Cross. Perhaps could not leave his passion of creating ads for newspapers, magazines. He took up an interest in the field of animation and since then there was no looking back. An esteem innovator in animation created a theme park design Disney open for all Age people to cherish Childhood with Cartoons!
Today everyone associates his/her childhood with the cartoons of Disney and perhaps the credit goes to very passionate zeal to creativity and innovation, Walt Disney presented!

~ Creations of Cartoons ~

It’s not just the check and the columns,
It is some curves, cartoons, creativity and a Clair view,
Oh! It is not is about the cost definitely!!
Life is much precious with Passion..
A sketch that match,
And the livelihood is sure patched!
Blocks yet it does not block..
Block made the strong wall!
Yet with no block on thoughts,
The colors just flock,
Torment and pain with tints and Paint
Trace the human race
Perhaps an irony reflects..in every pattern..
Strokes of Brush
Yet not a sheer stroke against but
Brushes away the rough strokes
Creativity in cartoons, carries the care of the passion
With humble action and reaction!
Thank God! They don't make fools..
They made Cartoons with fun!
with passion Live
Your Passion..!
