The SHKP Club had local cartoonist Kong Kee hosting a Loving Homes Support the Family Comic Workshop to encourage members create family-themed personalized cartoons. Members at the workshop said that drawing cartoons helped them understand their family members, and they were also able to demonstrate their creativity and strengthen communication between family members in the process.
Kong Kee introduced the works of famous cartoonists at the workshop. Participants could learn from admiring the works and developing their powers of observation. Observation is an essential requirement for a cartoonist and helps promote family relationships. Paying more attention to how family members interact and their personalities and preferences enables people to appreciate their efforts to maintain the family. He also demonstrated how to draw faces and express emotions, explaining facial proportions and the use of exaggerated expression to amplify the features of cartoon characters with simple strokes. Kong Kee then encouraged participants to try to create four-frame loving home comic strips, putting their closest family members into their works.
The Lovey-loving Family comics created by Kong Kee will be posted on the SHKP Club Cherish Your Family facebook page. Members and fans are welcome to write down their personal thoughts and share the comic stories with friends to encourage everyone to support each other in the family, adding joy and happiness. Participants can also win attractive gifts. The first gifts will be Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Kowloon East buffet dinner coupons so families can enjoy the fruits of mutual support together.
