Guy Gilchrist’s illustrations are among the most prominent and widely recognized American cartoon icons of the 20th century. His career as an artist encompasses other classics outside of the Jim Henson properties, including Minnie Mouse, Pink Panther, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men, Tom & Jerry, and the Looney Tunes. His work spans decades of newspaper comic strips, coloring books, merchandise and television programs, and is even among the exhibits enshrined in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
I always tell them the truth... I just can't wait to see you smile! "
Today, Guy joins DonatePPE.org in the fight against COVID, in a new interactive art project: in the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing Guy Gilchrist original drawings, including doodles that inspire laughter, comics that spark nostalgia, and coloring book pages that you can download for free from DonatePPE.org/doodles.
We challenge the community to join us in this art project and in supporting our frontline! Send us your colorings, and in turn we’ll help send these to hospitals to share with healthcare workers and patients all across the country.
Finally, we’re counting on everyone to send us ideas, sketches, photos and stories to help inspire Guy’s next drawing: send your submissions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
