    Just a thought: If you can’t draw, find someone who can. It can be a kid, your own or someone else’s, a sibling, niece, nephew or even grandkid!

      Very true! I always suggest finding a mentor; whether that be a cousin, nephew, kid — or pro! Anybody that can draw and you can mimic and learn from is a plus!

      Thanks for the comment, John.

      Best,

    Nate,
    Thanks so much for doing this! I really appreciate the insight and encouragement. I’ve been a teacher for many years, but I have loved comics all my life. While I count myself among those who can’t draw, I have been doodling for years, and I have taken a couple of online classes in single-panel cartooning. Like many others, though I got distracted by life and stopped drawing. Nevertheless, I’m not dead yet, and now I want to re-engage. I also love cat cartoons and my 15 lb Orange tabby named Jake (who sadly is no longer with us) is my main character thus far. Making money from this is not my priority (though I wouldn’t refuse, lol) but, I would like to develop my skills to the highest level I can. I am especially intrigued by the possibilities of using Procreate.
    Anyway, thanks again for doing this,
    Ray Hernandez

      Hi Ray!

      Very cool! Glad to hear you’re picking up the pen and I’m a sucker for cat cartoons, so I’d love to check them out sometime.

      Thanks for the comment and really glad to hear you enjoy the insight and encouragement!

      Best,

      Nate
