The Frustrated Cartoonist – At 100
Our final selection is from Nate Fakes. He draws, might draw, used to draw the Frustrated Cartoonist. Hell, I don’t know. You see Nate has hit the big time with Mad Magazine as well and will have a recurring strip going forward. He swears that doesn’t mean the end of his Frustrated Cartoonist character Jim, but given how he drew him at 100, I think it might be a sign.
The Frustrated Cartoonist is Jim who longs to be like Nate and actually get paid to do his craft. Yet like all of us frustrated cartoonists, he has to manage a day job to pay the bills. That and his girlfriend and neighbors seem to cut into actual cartooning time. Anyone who has ever had a hobby that they eventually wanted to become a career will relate.
So I give you the slow progression of age of Jim.
So thanks Nate and thanks to all the great cartoonists for helping me out. I look forward to reading all the comments.
Follow Nate on Twitter so you can keep up with all he is doing.
And follow me on Twitter too. I should finally be posting again sometime this week.
