Morshed Mishu - G Dhonnobad
I’m Abdulla -Al- Morshed a cartoonist from Bangladesh, but I work under the pen-name ‘Morshed Mishu’ since 2012. I was born on 29th July 1993 in Mirpur. I started drawing cartoons professionally at the age of 19 and now I’m the Assistant Editor of UNMAD Monthly Satire Magazine – the longest running Cartoon Magazine of this region. I also worked as Editorial Cartoonist for the Daily Bangladesh Today & as an illustrator for Bitopi Advertising ltd. But No matter where I’ve worked, I never lose touch with UNMAD Magazine. In between I drew political (editorial/illustration) and clean humour cartoons, comic strips & advertising materials for various national dailies, agencies and periodicals on both local and global issues. Drawing Caricatures is also one of my strong points. Both as a member of Cartoon People (A Community of Bangladeshi Cartoonists Worldwide), and at my own capacity I’ve taken jobs as a caricaturist for different MNCs and Local bodies’ events and special celebrations.

Wall art & graffiti is another form that I like to do socially & commercially. Using walls as canvas & colour and mixed media as materials gave me the nickname ‘Mishu The Wall Destroyer’. In all my work I’ve always tried and I believe I’ve successfully kept a Bangladeshi flavour in all formats of my work. This won me a great local appreciation but my first international recognition came with a very close to my heart illustration series titled- ‘The Global Happiness Challenge’. As a cartoonist I had no choice but to see and let sink in photos of war and heart crunching images. The sadness in the eyes of the portrayed human beings, from children to old people made me unbelievably down, which greatly affected my work in general! But I stood up and decided to challenge the world I live in! Although I knew all along that as a single person I can not change the world, I told myself why should that stop me from trying? Hence I started my own war of ‘The Global Happiness Challenge’ with the weapon of my choice – the brush and paint! I selected the images that touched me the most, saddened me the most and started drawing the same image in a somewhat visually similar backdrop but with vibrant colours and converted the characters and the scenario to a ‘naturally happy’ frame. As I posted my first drawing of the series on Facebook, the internet instantly picked it up and went viral in various social media handle and news and views blogs. That was the moment I understood I was not alone, I was never alone! That feeling of strength and continuous knock from people all over the world pushed me draw the second one. From that moment onwards not only individuals but international online and mainstream media started talking about this series and my drawing and ‘global’ revelation of the project ran together. Interestingly, Bangladeshi mainstream media picked it up after being portrayed by many foreign media houses from different continents! I’ve called the series off after 11 drawings as I badly needed a break from the research that I had to do which many a time made me drown in my own tears and still gives me nightmares! Nonetheless, in this break I’m actually getting geared up with new ideas for the second season of the series. From the Best Cartoonist Award by UNMAD’s 40 years of regular publication celebration to all the love, support, and nonstop request for the next drawing by people and media – I consider my biggest success is not even when an international superstar or a celebrity shares and appreciates my own drawing or a PhD student writing a research paper and journal on it but when I see an unknown artist/cartoonist from all around the globe replicates my idea and trying by their own to make the world a happy place globally! I believe that is what ‘Global Happiness Challenge’ is all about, and I’ve never thought of copyrighting this as my intellectual property. Because this, again, keeps reminding me- I’m NOT alone! I was NEVER alone!

The Global GOD FORBID Challenge

We often use the phrase ‘God Forbid’ to express a fervent wish that something doesn’t happen.
This new ‘The Global GOD FORBID Challenge’ series is something I wish that never happen. (I wish the other way around, like my previous ‘The Global Happiness challenge’ series).
Then, why I’ve started drawing this new series?
In my previous series, by illustrating a real crisis moment into happy moment, I tried to show how beautiful & happy the world can be without War. And we all want that happily beautiful world.
But, in this new series I’ve increased the crisis rather that reducing it & placed a global leader in that crisis situation. I tried to show; if, ‘GOD FORBID’, the leader is not a leader but a common person like us & facing a War situation along with his/her family.
What would they do? How would they feel? Who would they blame?

GOD FORBID, the humankind face the situation.

I’m happy to release this new series of mine on the anniversary of my previous series. I’m grateful to Anik Khan™️ for keeping my request again to be my mentor for ‘The Global GOD FORBID Challenge’ series too.

The Global Happiness Challenge

On the beginning of 2018 a bunch of photos consisting war victims went viral. As most of my social media friends were sharing those, it popped up in my newsfeed. I couldn’t accept the cruelty, so initially I intentionally tried to avoid those photos. But that didn’t work. I could avoid them from my sight but I couldn’t avoid them from my mind. I was getting anxiety attack & couldn’t sleep for several nights. It was the midnight of February 25th 2018 when the idea came up in my mind. I asked myself, “if I don’t want to see these cruelty, what do I want to see?” My mind replied, “I want see people smiling. I want to see people happy.” So, I downloaded those devastating images & picked the photo where a father holding her child in his lap, crying & running. I started drawing & transforming it into happy moment. After finishing it, I showed it to Anik Khan™️ (Poet, Journalist & Executive Editor of UNMAD Magazine) & requested him to be my mentor & also to give 2 lines of poetry along with a name for the series. Anik Khan loved it so much that he instantly decided to be my mentor & gave 2 beautiful lines in Bangla,

“আমি শুধুই আঁকতে জানি, কষ্টগুলো ঢাকতে জানি।”

(“I only know how to draw, How to cover the gloomy sorrow.”)

The world is in unrest situation now a days. Happiness became a Challenging thing to have. So, he suggested the name ‘The Global Happiness Challenge’. In the next morning of 26tb February, I uploaded the illustration in my Facebook page & rest is history. That’s how this idea saw the sunlight. It’s not the country or the region that caught my interest, it is the peoples pain I’m attracted to. I don’t like to see people by their country or religion. It’s easy for me to see human as human. If we check the history, whenever any war or unstable situation occurred normal people like us suffered. We normal people are the victims of war & it kills me inside. One can not achieve happiness & peace by war. Happiness lies in simple moments like love between a father & his child, when siblings play together, when friends go in the field & wins a cup, when a child read fairytales & get lost in imaginary world. I believe we all human wants that & deserves that.
