Football cartoons by Chongqing cartoonist
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is in a fierce battle now. Wu Huixia, a famous Chongqing cartoonist, republished a series of football cartoons to his circles of friends to express his blessing to the World Cup. The cartoons, created in the 1990s, were very popular all over the country.
In 1998, a special column for cartoons in the magazine office of Modern Football was especially created by Huang Zhenchun, the chief editor, who invited You Lu, the vice chairman of the Chongqing Cartoon Association, to preside over the activity. He also invited the cartoonists from the Chongqing Cartoon Association to create cartoons with the theme of football.
At that time, Wu Huixia wasn’t a football fan, but was a cartoonist. After receiving the invitation from the magazine office of Modern Football, he started to focus on every football match and foreign football stars and then created many cartoons of football stars and other works with the theme of football.
These works not only connected reality with cartoon, but also captured the main features of the characters, which were vivid and humorous.
Particularly, his work Schlappner was highly praised, even Schlappner himself spoke highly of the cartoon. The cartoon was published in all sports magazines all over the country. (Translated by Chen Dandan, Fathom Language Limited)
