NEW DELHI: Google on Friday dedicated a doodle the mark the 200th birth anniversary of illustrator Sir John Tenniel.
Tenniel was known for illustrations, graphic humour, political cartoon. He served as principal political cartoonist at Punch magazine for over 50 years and was knighted for his artistic achievement in 1893.
He was man behind the illustrations in Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through The-Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871).
Tenniel’s long but strained partnership with Caroll gave birth to a series of classic characters, such as Alice and the Cheshire Cat, as depicted in the Doodle artwork’s rendition of their iconic meeting—characters who, along with many others, remain beloved by readers of all ages to this day.
“Tenniel’s illustrations have animated the imaginations of children and adults alike for generations. His legacy continues to thrive, as readers cherish these timeless works of art to this day,” Google wrote while dedicating the doodle to Tenniel.
