Die Plastic Bags .. Die !

In this drawing I imagine animals dressed up as agents prepared to get rid of the evil plastic bag. They have to do something about it because it's killing them & humans aren't doing much to stop it. This drawing translates a wish that i always had. What if animals can actually do something about it ? what if they had the ability to think & figure out that these plastic bags can actually kill them and they need to get rid of it right away ? Of course this wish is far from becoming true. The only thing the poor animal will be doing when it sees a plastic bag in front of it is swallow it & mistake it for food.

In the previous post, you saw the article & the drawing which came out on the 2nd issue of Funoon e-magazine. They were talking about the dangers of plastic bags. What you don't know is that the "Earth"drawing wasn't my first attempt. Before that i made this drawing. It covered the same subject but it was rejected by the editors of the e-magazine. Apparently the reason it was rejected is because they thought it was too childish & didn't suit the magazine's professional look. I didn't agree with them but i went ahead & prepared the other one.

I believe, like many other artists do, that cartoon isn't restricted to children only. its for everyone to enjoy from a little kid all the way to an old man. Cartoon is just another way to deliver information, only it can be much more effective than a plain text. If you see a drawing that you like, it will automatically stick in your head along with the information it's delivering not to mention that it will also draw a smile on your face. In the end, everyone is child at heart, But some people aren't aware of it yet.

i liked the last sentence" In the end, everyone is child at heart, But some people aren't aware of it yet"

as you get older ,,you seek childhood days ,,and sometimes you feel you need to be treated with care as a child..

the approach of delivering ideas through cartoon does make sense ,, :) good work

Great work..
I don't mind watching a movie where animals dressed in black n sunglasses, hunting down humans hehe..
I Like ur sarcastic way of tackling real life issues..

Hearty said...

Thanks bro. If you like the idea so much why don't you make the movie yourself since its your hobby. But I guess you you'll have trouble training the animals to wear suits & shoot guns. good luck on that ;)
