How to draw Greg

Diary of a Wimpy kid. Jeff Kinney's interview


In the beginning Jeff Kinney wanted to work as a newspaper strip cartoonist, however he was not successful in getting his comic strip published. After, he started writing down his ideas in a journal. He found the format of text with pictures very interesting. Jeff used this format to become a cartoonist and create the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about a middle-school boy named Greg Heffley. Jeff Kinney thinks these years are the most difficult time in everyone’s life, so it would be the perfect setting for his story. He also created the Do-it-Yourself books, which would give people the chance to write and draw their own stories in different activities. The books that influenced Jeff Kinney as a kid were the Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary books. Fantasy books such as Piers Anthony books and the Lord of the Rings trilogy also inspired him. Jeff Kinney only hopes that people really enjoy his books and think they are funny.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

It's a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you're ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary. In book one of this debut series, Greg is happy to have Rowley, his sidekick, along for the ride. But when Rowley's star starts to rise, Greg tries to use his best friend's newfound popularity to his own advantage, kicking off a chain of events that will test their friendship in hilarious fashion.
Do you want to try? Wimp yourself!!!

These are the Haunted Houses you have designed. Good job!
Thanks a lot to the artists that have drawn our ideas.
