I was going to begin discussing the work I am including in this years degree show but I saw this and decided that I would blog it today.
Today marks the 76th Birthday of Roger Hargreaves, the creator of the Mr Men and Little Miss books. Google has created around 16 tribute images to the characters from the books and the tv show.
Born on May 9, 1935, in Cleckheaton, England, Hargreaves worked in his father’s dry cleaning business, then moved to the world of advertising and finally came back to his original ambition, cartooning. In 1971, he wrote his first Mr. Men book, Mr Tickle, which was a runaway success and later led to the animated series Mr. Men Show, on BBC. A decade later, the Little Miss series of books began to appear. His books have sold millions of copies around the world and have been translated into many languages. Hargreaves died of a stroke on September 11, 1988.
