Nate Fakes, apart from having a cool name that sounds like a pseudonym, also makes comics with a unique style. They usually deal with humor, ridiculous situations, gags, and puns, and they feature humans, animals, and even inanimate objects. His illustrations and messages are a great combination, and his jokes stand alone.
His comics are perfect if you want to take a break from serious business, or laugh at a little joke. They are harmless and fantastic.
“I’ve been drawing since I was given my first box of pens. And I’ve continued to do it as an adult, with passion. I guess my biggest inspiration was The Far Side and MAD magazine.” He also gives courses to people who want to learn to make comics, so don’t miss his website and social networks.
I’ve been a cartoonist my whole life. Professionally, I started a little over 10 years ago. It’s tough but satisfying. If you work for an agency, you don’t choose your projects and stick to their standards when writing and drawing. It was a great experience, but I like to have freedom. So now I have the freedom to work alone, and it’s for the best. I miss hanging out with more people sometimes, but I prefer it.
Becoming a cartoonist is hard and brutal. They reject you a lot and almost nothing goes as planned. You have to hang on there and keep working on it. Many people give up, and many do not get to do exactly what they want but the path may take you to something better. I now have a deal to do a graphic novel, which is something I never thought I would do.
