Running Toons Takes-Off!
What is Running Toons?
RT is a safehouse where runners can have a good laugh at themselves in an interactive and harmless way. Through Gus’s keen observations & Wen-Li’s talented drawings, we can take a look at “The Lighter Side Of Running” through the funny media of cartoons, and hence, the name, “Running Toons”.
How Did The Idea Originate?
Gus explains, “Runners are fanatical about running, and sometimes, runners’s obsessions are so extreme & weird that it becomes hilarious. We are obsessed about our timing, our training, our running shoes, our medals, etc. It cannot be healthy to be obsessed with something so much that one becomes out-of-touch with reality altogether. Thus, I created Running Toons to encourage runners to NOT take life & running too seriously, by sharing with them, some funny running jokes and stories.”
Gus added, “I am fortunate that my RT co-founder & artist Wen-Li is also a runner who understands well the Runner’s Mind. Together, we hope to entertain runners with unique illustrations of our special brand of running humour.
Wen-Li share, “I hope we can inspire more people to take-up running for their health through a fun & unique way”.
We invite you to be part of Running Toon’s extended family, and share your opinion and comments. Hopefully, one day, with your support, we can be a running comic of which all Malaysians can be proud!
