We’re back with more silly and funny comics. This time we present Tomversation.toons. This artist creates old-school single-panel comics. They are full of wacky humor and twists, weird characters and situations not many of us encounter.
The style that this cartoonist uses is very reminiscent of newspaper comics and there is something very nostalgic about them. The comics are very simple, but at the same time, they have a lot of detail and expression. The artist enjoys puns and puns. He sometimes even includes a bit of dark humor in his comics.
We asked the artist how he got into art: “I was born with it. I’ve been in art since I could hold a crayon. I started drawing cartoons many years ago, I can’t remember when, it seems like forever.” I will continue with them until the day I die. It is part of me. The hardest part, I think, is coming up with the ideas or gags for the cartoons. Drawing is the easy part, coming up with daily ideas. It’s the main work involved.”
“I would describe my style as fast, fast, sparse. I was once told by a cartoon editor that I draw fast. And I do. Also, in recent years I have tried to be clean in my drawings, in the sense that I don’t groceries with a lot of details or backgrounds. I see it as a black box set, where there’s a table and chairs and not much else on stage other than the actors. And my humor is a bit cerebral. Not everyone gets the jokes, I think sometimes my humor makes you stop and think.”
