Nate Fakes, besides having an awesome name that sounds like a perfect pseudonym, also has a comic series with his own unique style. They mostly revolve around situational humor, ridiculous situations, gags, and puns, and involve anything from animals and humans to inanimate objects. His illustrations and captions provide a powerful two-punch combination in his punchlines, knocking you out with a good joke.

His comics are just the thing if you're looking for a light break in serious matters, or a joke to brighten your day with. They're harmless, inoffensive, and completely fantastic! And it isn't the first time that he's been featured on Bored Panda. Almost exactly a year ago, he made a successful post about cats, which you can find here.

He shared about his background in drawing and his key inspirations for his aspiration: "I’ve always drawn ever since I hit my first box of crayons. Naturally, I kept with them into adulthood. I just have a passion to keep doing them. I suppose my biggest inspiration was The Far Side and MAD Magazine." He even gives courses to people that want to learn about making comics. So make sure you check him out on his website and social media linked below.

The artist talked about his immense experience as a cartoonist. "I've been a cartoonist my whole life. Professionally, I guess you can say I started about a little over a decade ago. It’s a tough profession, but the most rewarding profession, too." He also compared working for an agency and freelance. "At an agency, you don’t get to pick and choose your projects. Plus, you have to abide by their rules in terms of writing and drawing. It was a great experience, but I like the freedom of working for myself at cartooning. So, the freedom I have working solo is probably the best part about it. I will say, though, there are times when I miss hanging out with other people. However, I still prefer all my work to come out of my own studio."

He also gave his two cents to comic artists that are only beginning their journey. "It’s hard and brutal. You’ll have a ton of rejection and almost nothing works out as planned. It takes thick skin to hang in there and keep working at cartooning. If you work hard and have a goal of becoming a cartoonist, there’s a good chance you’ll become one. Most people give up. Hang in there. You may end up not being able to do exactly what you want when it comes to cartooning, but the journey may take you someplace better. For example, I now have a publishing deal for a graphic novel, which is something I thought I’d never be doing. It’s an exciting direction I’m anxious to take with my work and totally different than my gag comics."

His biggest lesson that he learned over the years is "that, even if you think you are [somebody], you’re not all that. You need to constantly grow and become better. Take honest criticism from professionals and use it to your advantage."

Add an extra "R" and it becomes "Mayor was here." Also, mayo will be fine if you leave it out of the fridge.
