HELLO, FUNNY CARTOON FANS!
I'm D.K. Upshaw from East Chicago, Indiana. Welcome to my little old funny cartoon business, Ladytooner!
Ladytooner is the home of KAWAII 5-2, my stable of cute, cool, charming, clever, clean and CRAZY! cartoon characters who'll make the whole family laugh out loud (see, I spelled it out)!
My cartoons specialize in finding the funny stuff in everyday life--no matter how exaggerated the cartoons, anyone can relate to them. My purpose in Ladytooner is to make you laugh--at life and, maybe, at yourself! (By the way, "kawaii" is Japanese for "cute". And my characters are as cute as cupcakes!)
"I see your work with a lot of heart and a little bit of [naivete], which can work very good with [children]. In rare cases, this 'naiveness' can be very deep [and] touch the general public."
