For anyone who could use a bit of inspiration, here’s something appropriate: ZEN Pencils.
This website is the brainchild of an Australian called Gavin Aung Than. He was a freelance illustrator and designer for several years, until he decided to take a gamble on a dream; and from the looks of it, he’s winning!
Gavin quit his job earlier in the year and devoted himself exclusively to creating a website that mixed famous quotes with cartoons. A few months after, and ZEN pencils already features a vast and steadily growing audience, and almost fifty illustrated quotes (and growing) are already available.
Like this one, which is currently the most popular piece:
Within a few months of its inception, this project was already met with widespread acclaim from readers and critics alike, and everything suggests it will be a bright future for this talented author and his creations. You can read more background info about it here, or you can just check the homepage for the latest inspirational cartoons.
Gavin is currently publishing a new cartoon every Tuesday and Thursday, and you should check it out! It’s awesome work, and he does a great job of surpassing the reader’s expectations on a regular basis. ZEN pencils is really good stuff, and will surely be on the forefront of a new trend in inspirational entertainment.
