My Cartoons

Will coronavirus lockdown strengthen the family bond? Or not?

To record what it’s like to be in the lockdown home with young children, I’m documenting my everyday family life with cartoons.

Characters

Cartoon about artist and children's author Noriko Matsubara's family life with her children during the lockdown UK.

Steve

Nori’s husband. English. Computer programmer. He is calm and quiet but has strong core (in another word ‘stubborn’). Has a good sense of humour. He likes quiet places surrounded by nature.

Ichi

7-year-old boy. Very laidback. He has a gentle heart and even cares for a single spider. Good at drawing. He loves deep sea anglerfish.

Naomi

3-year-old girl. Naughty and feisty. Loves role-plays. She is a free spirit and goes her own way. She believes the world belongs to her.

Nori

Artist, children’s book author & illustrator. After working as a Japanese teacher in Lebanon, she wakes up as an artist. While striving to raise children to be the best persons they can be, she is at the mercy of her children everyday.
