Bloghorn finished our interview with Artist of the Month, Neil Dishington ‘Dish’, by asking about his thoughts on the future of making jokes in drawing.

I hope there is one. I used to advise the kids I taught to ‘go for it’ otherwise you will regret not giving it a go. I still meet up with some of them, they are in their 40s: Designers and Illustrators etc. It is a joy to see how successful they are…. they took that advice (one of the rare perks of teaching).

And what of the future in the digital age?

Of course there is one, but I do find a lot of enhanced stuff in films rather bland and predictable, effects for effects sake. I even thought the latest Wallace and Gromit rather ordinary… oh dear that will annoy some people.

Humour, like sex,is a very personal experience and you just need funny bones…

Bloghorn will be unveiling a new Artist of the Month for March next Friday.
