Celebrating the 107th anniversary of Winsor Zenic McCay'sin Slumberland, Google on Monday displayed an animated and colourful doodle. Today's doodle is a tribute to his creativity and creation of fictional characters who won hearts of millions with their adventures.
Winsor Zenic McCay, born on September 26, 1869 in Spring Lake, Michigan (U.S), was an animator and cartoonist who worked under the pen name Silas for legal reasons.
He realized his zeal towards art during his youth while he was in Ypsilanti. So, to pursue his passion, he underwent his only formal art training from Eastern Michigan University formerly known as John Goodison of Michigan State Normal College.
Winson McCay was highly admired for his bold use of colour. And with his creativity he amazed his readers and surpassed his contemporaries, and also set an example of inspiration for many.
Little Nemo in Slumberland was his first comic strip series that revolves around about the little character Nemo and his dreams. The intriguing character has to reach 'Slumberland', the realm of King Morpheus, as the latter wanted Nemo with his daughter.
His first major comic strip was 'A Tale of the Jungle Imps' by Felix Fiddle based on creatures of jungle that tells about their adaptation to a hostile world.
Today's animated Google doodle pays tribute to the weekly comic strips that appeared on the October 15, 1905 - July 23, 1911 and September 3, 1911 - July 26, 1914, respectively.
The header of the doodle is 'Little Nemo in Google Land'.
