As anyone who reads this blog will know (if there is anyone out there :) ), I'm a amatuer cartoonist. I've been interested in cartoons for as long as I can remember, but it's only recently that I've become active as a cartoonist. When I got started over a year back, I started checking out web comics, and I've come to notice one important fact - most of the best web comics are American.
Why is this?
The UK has enormous talent, our cartoonists are some of the best in the world, so why are the UK web comics (with a few exceptions - don't expect me to name names) so poor? Is it because of the size of our beloved isles (less cartoonist per square metre), or our work ethic? I can't believe it's our sense of humour - british comedy is widely recognized as being some of the best in the world.
Something has to be done to correct the balance, so perhaps I should put my money where my mouth is and do my own. I've been thinking about it for a while now, so we'll see what develops...
