Archie Comics Cartoonist Tom Moore is No more...

Archie Comics Cartoonist Tom Moore is No more...
The veteran American Artist - Cartoonist Tom Moore, who was behind the escapades of the freckled-face, red-haired character Archie, died in El Paso, Texas at 86
Archie comics launched in 1941, inspired in part by the Andy Hardy movies of the 1930s. Although many associate Archie and the gang with classic high school drama, the franchise evolved to take on modern topics and add greater diversity to its cast of characters.
Kerala Cartoon Academy pays respectful homage. May his soul rest in peace

ചിരിമരുന്നുമായി കാര്‍ട്ടൂണ്‍ അക്കാദമി

കാന്‍സര്‍ ജീവിതത്തിന്റെ അവസാനമല്ല.കരുതലും സ്‌നേഹവും ഔഷധവും തീര്‍ക്കുന്ന ജീവന്റെ നടപ്പാലത്തിലൂടെ സൗഖ്യത്തിലേയ്ക്ക് നടക്കാം.അതിനൊപ്പം ഒന്നു പുഞ്ചിരിക്കാം.മനസ് പ്രസന്നമാവാന്‍ നര്‍മത്തെക്കാള്‍ വലിയൊരു സിദ്ധൗഷധമില്ല. 

എറണാകുളം ജനറല്‍ ആസ്പത്രിയിലെ കാന്‍സര്‍ രോഗികള്‍ക്കായി CARING LINES എന്ന പേരില്‍, വരയും ചിരിയും നിറഞ്ഞ ഒരു സായാഹ്നം ഒരുക്കുകയാണ് കേരളാ കാര്‍ട്ടൂണ്‍ അക്കാദമി.

അവരെ വരച്ചും, അവരുടെ പ്രിയ കഥാപാത്രങ്ങള്‍ക്ക് നിറം കൊടുത്തുംപ്രമുഖ കാര്‍ട്ടൂണിസ്റ്റുകള്‍ ഒപ്പമുണ്ടാവും. 

റണാകുളം MLA ശ്രീ ഹൈബി ഈഡന്‍റെ ''റീച്ച് ഔട്ട് പ്രോഗ്രാമുമായി സഹകരിച്ചാണ് CARING LINES സംഘടിപ്പിക്കുന്നത് .
 

ജൂണ്‍ ഒന്നാം തീയതിയാണ് പരിപാടി. സമയം വൈകീട്ട് 3.30
 

കാന്‍സര്‍ മാത്രമല്ല,അത്തരം പല അസുഖങ്ങളും ബാധിച്ച് രോഗശയ്യയിലുള്ളവര്‍ക്കായുള്ള കാര്‍ട്ടൂണ്‍ അക്കാദമിയുടെ "കെയറിങ് ലൈന്‍സി"ന്റെ എളിയ തുടക്കമാണിത്.
