Chow Hon Lam is a children’s book illustrator and comic creator, and the man behind Buddy Gator comic series which started on 22nd of June 2020. Earthwonders reached out to Chow to ask him more about his work, and what inspired him to feature an alligator as a main character in his comics.
“I started this series during the pandemic, I had more time at home, I was thinking of creating something that can warm people up and bring a smile to their face, especially in the hard time of 2020. The reason I choose an alligator is to try to tell people not to judge a book by it’s cover, an alligators can be a heartwarming buddy too,” said the artist for Earthwonders.
In the Buddy Gator series we see a wide range of topics, for which the artist told us the source of his inspiration,. “The inspiration is from my daily life, stories from people around me, news we see on the internet, a post that my friends and family share on social media, and most of the time, it is from TV shows and movies, I like movies a lot,” added Chow.
Well, who doesn’t love animal comics that so light-heartedly deal with difficult times and comfort us to look for better things in life. A lot of people can relate to these cute comics that spread such a positive attitude.
