“Comic writing has become a part of my life, just like taking a walk outside in my spare time every day.It may seem that comics are not as delicate as traditional painting, but they can always give people meaningful inspiration with simple and clear pictures through a few lines of ink.”Shangluo city cartoonist association chairman Wang Kuo said.On February 3, when the reporter of Huachang Daily contacted Wang Kuo, he was spending the Spring Festival with his family in danfeng, his hometown. When it came to comics, Wang Kuo was very talkative. He told the reporter that he was in a shopping trip in 1992,He came across a cartoon drawn by Li Naliang, the former president of shaanxi Cartoon Research Association, which was very interesting. From that moment, he fell in love with comics.From then on, Wang Kuo’s heart planted a seed to create cartoons, at that time Wang Kuo wanted to learn to draw cartoons, but had not met a cartoon teacher, he could only learn by himself, until 1999, because of a sketch cartoon work, he knew the art editor Niu Xinping of Shangluo Daily.In the 1990s, Zhulinguan is the land of fish and rice in Danfeng, rich in products and beautiful scenery. There is a local saying that zhulinguan has eight views.At that time, Wang Kuo was teaching in Zhulinguan Middle School. Based on these folk proverbs, he sketched the Scenery of Zhulinguan and published it in Shangluo Daily.After seeing Wang Kuo’s work, Niu Xinping felt that he could see the potential comic thinking in his work, so he was deeply impressed by the danfeng guy and suggested drawing comics to him after contacting him.After some communication with Niu Xinping, wang Kuo realized more deeply that interesting comic art is what he really wants to pursue.After 2000, Wang Kuo shifted his creative focus to comics. He followed Niu Xinping to learn comics and began to create his own comic works.”It was very difficult for me at the beginning,” says Wang Kuo.At that time, I was young and lacked social and life experience, let alone inspiring people with comics.”Cartoon workers are to have the ability to feel life, know this point Wang Kuo determined to life “worship”, since then, he would like to have nothing to walk in the street, carefully observe the people and things around, thought is increasingly mature, his works also slowly got more attention and praise.Wang Kuo, 48 years old, has been devoted to cartoon for more than 20 years.
