When we get a minute to spare, a lot of us simply fire up Netflix and blow it away relaxing. But a 32-year-old who goes by the nickname Scribbly G isn’t most of us. Recently, the South African found his evenings not as occupied as before, so he started creating comics. Just like that. So while scrolling through the strips, remember, the guy achieved all of this in just about a year-and-a-half.
“I’m 32 and started making comics about a year-and-a-half ago,” Scribbly G told Bored Panda. “Late start, I know, but my girlfriend started studying again in the evenings and I needed a hobby to cure the boredom.”
“I describe my comics as very badly drawn and super random,” the artist said. “I’m still learning to draw. I think I have the funniness down, but still need a lot more drawing practice before I see myself at least as an OK cartoonist.”
The first thing Scribbly G focuses on when he’s working on a piece is just trying to make himself laugh. “If I find it funny, I’m pretty sure at least one other person will laugh, and that’s a win! I then try to make it not look like the worst comic in the world, nobody wants to be the worst cartoonist, 2nd-worst is fine. When it looks passable as a comic, and makes me laugh, I post it.”
When talking about what he loves in others’ work, Scribbly G was pretty clear. “I love silent characters, I love silent comics, I’m not good at silent strips yet, but it is something I try to work on,” Scribbly G added. “I’ve always loved silent comics, maybe because I’m a pretty silent dude? Dunno? Oh, and I love Batman, because like, he’s Batman!”
