I’ve created humorous one-panel dog comics to brighten your day.(20new pics)

My name is Johnny Hawkins, and I draw one-panel comics to increase exposure for hundreds of publications and dozens of online businesses. I create cartoons for life or death, whichever comes first. I’m working hard on the 2025 Dog Cartoon Daily Calendar. Here some of the previous episode.

My journey as a cartoonist began when I was very young. I drew everything, including the walls, the piano, my sisters, and the dog. My mother was a huge influence because she was an artist. She painted wildlife – me and my brother. Although my drawings were very different from her realistic depictions, my mother supported me and gave me a book called “How to Draw Cartoons” for Christmas when I was about 8 years old. I followed this closely and also loved drawing Disney characters. At some point, I decided that I wanted to become the next Walt Disney. I made a map of Johnny Hawkins’s World and everything that I still have. I created my characters, wrote simple children’s books, and acted out funny movies for my sisters.

Eventually, I discovered that there is something called “freelancers” and they sell their photos to magazines and things like that. So, I put together a batch of cartoons and sent them off. And he was refused. And he rejected it. And he rejected it. Kind of like my basketball shooting and dating life. But I came to terms with it and eventually sold the cartoon for $15 to Scripture Press when I was in college in 1986.

You could say that marketing is the hardest part… and it’s always difficult to find places that will buy my work. But maintaining discipline is the biggest challenge I face every day: it’s so easy to get distracted and not prioritize your daily drawings. But when I force myself to sit and draw… the creativity flows… I’ve had writer’s block a few times… and luckily it didn’t happen, although I almost created 100 Cartoons a Day Calendars.
