Anthropomorphic Cartoons by Mike Lynch


Anthropomorphic cartoons, or to put it in simpler terms, cartoons where things that don't talk & behave like people actually talk and behave like people. Above: from Wall Street Journal.



I just noticed that these slugs do not sit in chairs. What a live. Slimy and chairless. And suicidal.


From a series of snowman cartoons.


One of my favorite cartoons. I don't think the kid is gonna make it.



I found out that it's really hard to draw anthropomorphic rock, paper and scissors. At least for me. Originally published in Reader's Digest.


I should have drawn even more destruction.


"Humminah" is a funny word. I should use it more often.




Above: I gave the original of this one to my realtor. It's hard to see in the scan, but it says "real Estate" on the briefcase.



Above: how cold the human heart can be. We never consider the plight of the dusty, plastic plant now, do we?




Above: I know a lot of people who have this lifestyle.

More cartoons for presentations and magazine and so on at my site heykidscomics.com!

"We never consider the plight of the dusty, plastic plant now, do we?"

...I do, on a regular basis. But I guess I'm in the minority on that.

Jonathan, the snowman one is my favorite.

skarab, nice to know you feel the pain of the plastic potted plant.

Mark, "Hummina" = Always Funny.

Benita's words are so kind she could easily get me to write bad checks on her behalf. Thanks, Benita!
