Being a dad is not easy because it comes with lots of responsibilities. Sometimes, you have to become a teacher. Sometimes, you have to become a cook. And sometimes, you have to become an illustrator. Like Nate Anderson did. 

He is a professional illustrator who has been creating funny comic strips featuring his son and dog. The comic strip is called BoyAndDogComic and it’s the best thing on the internet.

Nate Anderson explained;

“My life was changed by this wiggly, squishy boy that filled my home with laughter and poop. The animals didn’t know what to think of him at first, but my Golden Retriever, Murphy, decided that he was pretty cool. Rowan loves the dog and would squeal with delight whenever Murphy was around him. I started to draw the comics to show what I imagined in my head was transpiring between them.”

“Everything is new for the boy, and I imagined that it was the dog’s duty to teach him all about the world from a dog’s point of view. I was already working as a professional Illustrator/Designer at the time, and I feel that I learned more working in the industry than I ever did in school with very uninspiring instructors.”

“My comics give me the ability to tell funny stories and make people laugh with silly gags. I like making people happy. I like making people laugh. Unfortunately, I’m a little socially awkward so this is a better platform for my jokes.”

“I am a huge Disney nerd and when I get into a slump, watching one of the movies he worked on gets me drawing again. Disney’s Tarzan has been a huge influence in my desire to animate.”

“I know I’m not the only one who deals with baby problems and dog problems, so if I can get people to relate to my goofy drawings and have a chuckle then I will consider myself successful.”
