SYAC - Q and A - Hair by TomPreston SYAC - Q and A - Hair by TomPreston
Copyright 2012 Andrew Dobson
Read the latest “So, You’re A Cartoonist” at the following [link]

I'm gonna try to answer user questions in comic form. Maybe this will go for a week or two, I dunno. If you want to ask a question please do so here: [link]

I get this one a lot. And I do mean A LOT. I've never believed that my cartoon representation of me was an accurate depiction of the real me, but when I first started SYAC far too many people couldn't separate the two.

As such, over the year doing this comic I've tried to distance my cartoon self from my real self, and making him more "iconic" by adding hair is just one of those subtle changes.

than why have your realistic cartoon manifestation in a comic anyway. this character could be anyone or anything that is not resembling you and posessing any other features you want it to have. and it still could represent your opinion and tell your story. but exactly you, only prettier... well.

In real life I don't have bangs, yet I draw myself with wild ones all the time.
