Oh Dog! I am so honored to introduce you to my guest today! Nic is a cartoonist whose ‘toons address animal welfare issues. I first ran across his work when a friend shared some of his work on Facebook. I checked out his page, liked what I saw, and asked for an interview. I think you’ll like what Nic has to say, so give him a warm welcome!
Rumpy: Thanks so much for being my guest today!
Nic: Hi Rumpy! Thanks, Im honoured to be a part of your cool blog.
Rumpy: So can you tell us about your work?
Nic: I can always remember drawing as a child, especially dogs! We always had dogs growing up, oh and a feral cat we adopted called “fluffy”. Just got back into cartooning about 2 years ago and I see that I’m slowly improving. Its a lot of fun, you can really get lost in the drawing at times! I really despise animal cruelty of all forms and I hope that by drawing these cartoons about animal welfare it will help people become aware of just how badly animals are treated.
Rumpy: And are all your cartoons about dogs?
Nic: Whilst companion animals are my favorite animal that I like to promote, it goes alot further,the factory farming of pigs, lamb, chickens is horrific. The dairy and beef industry suffering is shocking and people need to be made aware of this and hopefully make compassionate choices. The way the world is at the moment I will never run out of material unfortunately, but I will continue to make people aware of the animals plight.
Rumpy: Well I for one hope you draw your way out of material! So tell me about your family!
Nic: My wife and I are proud parents of a big boofy rottie called “Maverick”
Rumpy: Now that is one cool dude! OK, one last question for fun. If you was a dinosaur, what kind would you be?
Nic: Dinosaur? Hmmmm? I’m a large, some say imposing type of figure, maybe a friendly T-rex…lol
Rumpy: woo woo woo! Thanks again Nic! And keep up the great work!
Nic: End interview “click” lol.
