Way back in 1997, cartoonist Bob Kain helped create our favourite little bird character and brought him to life in the pages of Chirp magazine.
We were saddened to learn of Bob’s passing last week.
But we are so happy that his legacy lives on in the magazine. Bob shared so many of Chirp’s sweet and silly qualities and even though he stopped drawing the Chirp Comic years ago, we still see much of him in the character. Bob Kain helped us build this magazine to what it is today and we are honoured to have been part of his inspiring life and his ever-evolving cartooning journey.
In honour of Bob, we thought we would share his first-ever Chirp Comic. Enjoy!
