About KobeKartoons

When I was little, I would always draw things I saw on T.V. like Veggietales, and The Lion King. Around 2nd Grade, I created my first official cartoon character. Since then, I’ve been creating characters and stories that revolve around them. I’ve always dreamed of becoming famous for my cartoons, so I decided to become an animator or comic artist when I grow up.

 

About Me:

I love to watch cartoons; they serve as an inspirational source for my own cartoons. I used to be a big fan of The Amazing World of Gumball on Cartoon Network. It influenced a lot of my earlier works. I’m a big fan of Japanese anime like Doraemon, and Pokémon. I find cartoons with simple, cute art styles and happy stories to be the most influential and inspiring.  

I also love to play video games, mainly Nintendo. I mainly play Pokémon, Kirby and Super Smash Bros. I love how creative and fun their games are. The video games that I play also have an influence on my cartoons as well.

Music is another inspirational factor when it comes to making cartoons; it gets my creative juices flowing. I listen to K-pop and J-pop artists like Apink, and Sukima Switch, but I also like old school Hip Hop and R&B. I also listen to movie soundtracks and Nintendo OSTs. I enjoy listening to music and watching the clouds while drawing.

On a separate note, I love Japanese culture. Not only do I love their anime and music, but I also love other aspects of Japan culture like their food and lifestyles. It’s kind of a dream for me to visit there one day and enjoy the many things they have to offer; I’d love to watch a Doraemon or Pokemon film in theaters, and visit a restaurant and try the unique cuisine.

 

– Special Thanks –

I would like to say thank you to my wonderful mom. Besides being so encouraging and loving to me as your son, you taught me a lot on how to use computer programs, how to code, and most importantly, to not give up. You helped me create this website from the ground up. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.

I also must thank everyone else in my family, my friends, my teachers, and many other people in my life for encouraging me all the way through and you showing deep love for my art. Thank you for helping me realize my potential.

And lastly I want to thank Automattic for creating WordPress, and Phillip M. Hofer of frumph.net for creating ComicPress and Comic Easel. Thanks to them, a beginner web designer was able to create his own website.
