With pudgy cheeks and a family-friendly charm, enacting little scenes and emotions, Toby and Cucumber are the cutest cartoon stickers for any conversation in WeChat, China’s go-to messaging app. And now that lovable duo are just about to turn two.
Their creator is the mysterious web cartoonist Chipmunk, a self-described homebody who lives in Shanghai. Neocha tracked her down for a game of twenty questions (or thirty-one, but who’s counting).
肉乎乎的脸蛋，一本正经地卖萌，再加上取材于日常的小场景和小情绪，怎么能不让人收藏嘛！秃比和小青瓜就是让人情不自禁想关注的表情系列之一，目前已经快满 2 岁啦。
