Continuing their trend of honouring great legends through their Doodles, search engine giant Google on Saturday honoured India’s legendary cartoonist RK Laxman on his 94th birth anniversary.

Laxman was one of India’s greatest cartoonists known for his iconic creation ‘The Common Man’.

 

Issuing a statement along with the doodle, Google said:

“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.”

Sticking to Laxman’s style, Google too sketched out a black and white doodle for their homage to the legendary cartoonist.



The doodle displays the caricature-doodler’s art studio that has his work desk on the left and a number of canvases on the right.

In the centre, Laxman can be seen sitting on a chair, sketching out “The Common Man” on a canvas; with the Common Man standing behind it, holding a newspaper.

When you click on the doodle, it directs  you to the search page where numerous sites are listed providing information related to Laxman and his compositions.

Laxman was  born on October 24, 1921 and died earlier this year on January 26, 2015.

His art also include sketches from the TV show ‘Malgudi Days’ which was written by his equally illustrious brother RK Narayan.

Laxman had started his career as a part-time cartoonist for local newspapers and magazines and later joined ‘The Times of India’ where the daily comic strip “You Said it” gave birth to ‘The Common Man’.
