Have your caricature created by Azmi Hussin!
Azmi Hussin is a Penang-born cartoonist best known for capturing the nostalgia of growing up and living in Penang with his pen. Although he draws inspiration from his idol and mentor, the legendary Malaysian comic artist Datuk Lat, Azmi continues to showcase the breadth of his talent – from comics to still-lifes and portraits – through the years. And as new styles emerge, it becomes apparent that Azmi does not stray away from one common theme – his love for the state. Keen to promote Penang’s cultural stories through his work, Azmi’s creations often highlight elements unique to the state.
Azmi has made it into the Malaysia Book of Records for the most caricatures drawn in 24 hours (2017), the longest coffee painting (2019), and the longest single comic strip (2021). His sophomore book, The Little Mamak, which the National Book Council listed as one of 50 “Malaysia Best Titles” represented Malaysia at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany. For his contributions in the industry, he received the PeKOMIK Kembara Award by Persatuan Penggiat Komik (PeKOMIK) Malaysia (2018) and was named Tokoh Kartunis Negeri Pulau Pinang (2021 and 2022).
He will be caricature drawing on Saturday 15th of October, 11 am to 5 pm, at Hin Bus Depot. RM 10 Each Person (Black & White)
