You may not have ever seen this beautiful selection of images before. They come from a brand of bubble gum called “Love Is”.
The images were originally drawn by New Zealander Kim Grove Casali, first invented comics in 1970. They were first published in black and white on the pages of the LA Times where they gathered a lot of attention for their simplistic style.
Later in 1978, the images were redesigned to add colour and were used in the popular UK newspaper The Mail on Sunday. After load of these lovely pics featured in the newspaper, the rights were all bought by a Turkish bubble gum company and the images now appear on the inside of wrappers.
I love them all.
