Nate Fakes is a cartoonist and writer with a good sense of humor and immense talent to turn his funny ideas into gag cartoons. Most of his comics are inspired by animals – dogs, giraffes, rabbits, and bears are all being used but his biggest inspiration is cats.
Over the past decade, this LA-based artist has created dozens of cat cartoons that are both funny and smart. Inspiration for all of these comics was his cat, Tiger.
“My cat, the Tiger, has inspired me in many ways. She motivates me to be lazy, encourages me to swipe at random objects, and clean myself daily (I opt for a shower rather than licking myself…thankfully),” the artist wrote for Bored Panda.
Fakes has been drawing his entire life and he sold his first cartoon in fifth grade. His edgy humor earned him collaborations with big companies Red Bull, Disney, Scholastic, and Warner Bros. Still, his drawings based on real situations and adventures of cats are our favorites.
