Why does the world’s most famous cartoon balloon animal have to be so hard to draw?
Polygon article The world’s greatest cartoonist has finally made his mark on the world.
After years of research and painstaking work, Mr. Eiji Aoki, whose name is pronounced “Ejii” in Japanese, has created the world-famous balloon creature.
The character, named “Coco,” is a rabbit-shaped stuffed toy with a pair of eyes, a nose, a mouth and a large body.
The cartoon has been popular for years, with fans making their own versions of the character on the internet.
Mr. Aoki told The Associated Press that he wanted to use the character to celebrate Japanese culture and also for its own sake.
“When I’m talking to people about art and history, I often find that I’m the one who is most fascinated by history,” Mr. Yuzuki said.
“This is a story that really resonates with me.
I want to bring this to people.”
Mr. Kaji said he wanted “Coca” to be seen as a symbol of Japan’s “strong spirit” and that the artist would have to “show respect” to the Japanese people.
“He’s a unique character,” Mr Kaji told The AP.
“I hope he can inspire us to be brave enough to make his mark and show Japan the strength of its people.”
