Google Doodle for R. K. Laxman's 94th Birthday

Oct 24, 2015

R. K. Laxman's 94th Birthday

A humorist and illustrator with an uncommon talent, R.K. Laxman was one of India’s most celebrated cartoonists. His daily political cartoon, You Said It, ran on the front page of The Times of India for more than 50 years. 

Laxman was best known for his Common Man character, who he drew into his cartoons as a witness to the kinds of hypocrisies and societal inequalities Laxman wanted to silently expose.

Today’s Doodle honors R.K. Laxman for his deft artistic hand and sharp, incisive wit. Doodler Olivia Huynh in collaboration with Local Googlers wanted to salute the legendary cartoonist by creating a Doodle that payed homage to both Laxman (making sure to capture his wild shock of hair and distinctive grin) and his most popular character, who watches in his trademark checked shirt as the beloved illustrator sketches him one more time.
