Artist Illustrates The Daily Lives Of Animals And Characters In 30 Funny And Surreal Illustrations

Chow Hon Lam, known as Flying Mouse, is an artist, a children’s book illustrator, and a comic creator who lives in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The artist has been interested in art since he was 10 years old.

“Since primary school, at around 10 years old. I read a lot of Japanese manga at that time and had a dream to become a manga artist. I tried to submit my work to a publisher when I was in secondary school.”

He uses his imagination to create and design illustrations that show the daily lives of animals and characters. His style is cute and funny with subtle but impressive detailing.

The artist believes animals also have a daily life like humans. However, they are pure and simple while humans are just too complex and difficult to understand sometimes. That’s the reason why he loves animals, and most of his illustrations feature them. He also revealed his favorite animal and explained why he loved it.

“My favorite animal is a dog. Dogs are smart and I think they know how to communicate with humans,” he shared.

Here are some funny illustrations about animals in their daily lives that we collected to share with you. Scroll down to enjoy! These pics are guaranteed to make you laugh out loud!

He shared the process he created his work. “Usually, I will start with the idea. For me, everything around us can inspire us; a person, an animal, an object. I believe everything has its own story behind, maybe they have something to say, but sometimes, they just can’t talk. I am trying to tell the story for them.”

“After I get the idea, I will research on the internet to make sure the thing I’m drawing has gone right, makes sense and no there aren’t any mistakes. Then, I will continue with the sketching and line art, followed by the coloring. All these steps are usually done on a computer. I use Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Animate to create my work.”

I handle the illustration part. The story of the book is about a bunny, Teetu who sneaks off into the night to have an adventure in the woods.
