Bloghorn asked this month’s featured artist¬†Robert Duncan, what would be his best tips for aspiring cartoonists?

My main tip for wannabe cartoonists is to be original, and don’t be scared to do something ridiculous – even if no one else quite gets it. That’s better than copying someone else’s idea and bending it around a bit.

I just love drawing – always have done from a very early age – and consider I am still improving. So the tip there is keep at it. Be inspired by others to start with, and you’ll soon develop your own unique style.

Oh… And keep looking out for new places to sell your stuff, and constantly think how everything you read and see could benefit from your work…

The last part of our interview with Robert will be here next Friday. You can, of course, check out our archives of previous featured artists here and here.
