Drawtism says he's creating illustrations to disturb the comfortable. Or to comfort the disturbed. Whatever the case, one might call his works funny, low-brow, nonsense drawings... And the artist would be fine with all of these epithets. He just wants to help people escape the mundane part of day-to-day life.

"A lot of people find comfort in wholesome [content], and I do also!" Drawtism told Bored Panda. "I'm a huge fan of Liz Climo, Adamtots, and Coolman CoffeeDan. But I've always had a very dry and blunt sense of humor with an almost 'outside of the box' imagination and a slightly surreal approach. I think it's possibly a British sense of humor," he tried to pinpoint the origins of his no-BS approach to telling stories.

The UK-based artist resides on the border between England and Wales and hasn't had any formal art training or education. Officially, he's an engineer. But by no means does his profession limit Drawtism's creative capabilities. He's developed a unique visual style and is keeping it real.

In his works, Drawtism touches on a lot of sensitive topics and has received his fair share of snappy DMs. Talking to Bored Panda, the artist said he thinks people get offended far more than they should. "This isn't to say that in all situations people should not be genuinely offended by something (i.e. violent abuse, racism, animal/child abuse, etc.). But it's when people confuse 'disliking' or 'disagreeing' with something with 'being offended' and try to think opinion carries greater weight in arguments than facts," he explained.

One thing to say to anyone who is biased / prejudiced: "Raise your hand if you would like to be treated like (insert group: i.e. African Americans, American Indians, LGBT)?" When they don't, ask them why ... they'll instantly know how the other person is treated and maybe they will get their head out of their arse

"Ricky Gervais sums this up perfectly with his joke about 'guitar lessons'. If you dislike something, then more often than not, it wasn't intended for your enjoyment, so just move past it and let others view it."

Drawtism said that even though some deem his work as offensive, edgy cartoons is what others expect from him. "That is what some people follow me for, and what others possibly block me for. They say the truest form of art is creating debate, and I have found that my work definitely does that more often than not; positive or negative, it definitely gives cause to converse."

Drawtism's fascination with creating comics dates back to 2018 when he had a terrible motorcycle accident which left him in the hospital for almost 5 months. Unable to walk, it was there that he started doodling on his iPad and enjoyed it. "Fast forward 12 months and scrolling through social media, I stumbled across some very bad portraits someone was trying to sell, and I chuckled to myself and thought, 'I could do that' as a bit of a joke, so I posted on a local sales page a badly drawn picture of a dog which was received hugely with laughs all around, but eventually the mods took my post down."

Slightly annoyed by this, he created his own page to post and carry on having a laugh and the rest is history. "Now, my work has been shared by multiple e-zines, global businesses, and celebrities! The reception I have received has been truly humbling. I just wish I had the support to do it full-time, fingers crossed I’ll get there one day."

For those who enjoy Drawtism's artworks, consider checking out his Patreon for his NSFW comics.

Does the artist hide a hamster in every drawing? (In the teacup in this one) I can’t find one in all the drawings, but I may just be missing it.
